Re: No, we're not selling a blurry question mark shirt



It's funny, but A) text, and B) no Woot references.

There is a vast difference between reading a book/watching a movie and using a reference from that book/movie and using references from said book/movie colloquially. Especially as an insult.

The vision for this shirt isn't to come out bold and colorful. It's meant to fade into the shirt, which gives it the mysterious look.

Thanks for the support from the non-haters!

Also, anyone else think the halftones look kind of stripy like plaid?



Yes, for some reason the halftones are arranged grid-style rather than the normal 45 degree dithered method. Peeking through the archive the artist has used similar halftones before, but not in a manner where they overlay each other like this... so I can't really guess at how it would print.

Re: Dead Frog. Who dun it ?



Good job, mystery designer! Your frog is good! If I knew who you were, I might say that this is one of your best designs yet. Do you have photo shop? Doing texture is super easy.

Do they consider this Woot related? If not, cool design and GMV!

I enjoy this comment immensely :D

Also, I agree. As far as rating systems go, this would be considered higher than PG-13. Though, it is stylized which could perhaps save it. Either way, can we reject it anyways so something with more color can take its place?

i told my son that last night, so i put it down further, off topic, maybe, have you ever miss placed a shirt, and then find it hanging up. The story at my house anyhow. I just thought it would be fun to see someone wearing a hanger on a tshirt. I have another one submitted as well...so, if i get rejected, then ah.......try again. Kudos to you.

Now that I know you did this shirt, I dislike you sooooo much more. You pandering, greedy SOB.



Not cool. Not cool at all. You really should not be so harsh. For you it may be a pleasant past time to rip into peoples designs, but cruel words mean a lot more to those receiving them.
Plus, this designer has put in entries for many derbies past and has not won once, so labeling him as greedy and pandering is inaccurate.

Love the style on this one, but there's one thing that kinda bothers me. The hunter's right boot (the one that's on the ground) looks like it's going into a hole. I can't tell if it IS going into a hole, or if his foot just looks really small.

Anyways, overall it still looks really nice

The stylized violence would probably get away with a PG-13 rating because it's not photo-realistic. It's in silhouette which makes it less intense. James Bond gets away with putting bullet holes in people but since we don't see the blood pooling it's allowed.



so pooling blood isn't allowable, but a blown up head, with bits of brain and skull spattering out from a gunshot as it happens IS OK? just because it's in silhouette?

go ahead, rationalize all you want. it's ludicrous.

Re: Murder Mystery



Whats with the halftones that cut off in a sharp line anyways? Ugly if you ask me...

But seriously not consistent with other Woot rejections.

Thanks! Cute shirt, got my vote!



hoho, you are funny. I never thought that after making a shirt it would inspire poetry. LOL. Thanks again.

Now knowing who the artist is, his accusation seem rather baseless and totally out of line, like waaaay off. I do feel for the artist especially now knowing the careful thought and work the artist put into the piece in addition to the one of the most heartfelt defenses I've ever read here on woot. And an apology should be in order.



Adder DOES know who did this, though...

Sea serpents - mystery of the deep. But could they be floating wood, seaweed, giant cephalopods, flights of birds, wakes and waves, or could the hand of liars and fakers be behind them?

just because there isn't as much detail doesn't mean it's rushed...quite possibly it's an attempt to find balance due to many saying that they couldn't wear the more detailed ("busy") designs

This is the only one in the top 7 that I am not sure who designed. Hate the cream, but it's got my vote just cause it tells the truth about cats - They are killers.
