I agree. Grape can eat me, but the purple is what makes the shirt come alive, so it had to be.

OK, OK, I surrender! I've remade it and will be posting a new version with a different take on the type.

In the "quotations" derby, DF had a design in the fog consisting of these three pandas doing the "see no evil; hear no evil; spoke no evil" poses.

A long, violent battle ensued over the artistic integrity of the design (i.e. "pandering") and it was eventually rejected by woot due to its similarity to other designs.

Re: Infinite Pi



More Text added... I have other ideas, but I really wanted this back up... just for Text Sake!

Added the hidden numerical value of Pi, the title of the band and the subtext!

Enjoy Wooters...

Peace!

DF first got a print with this in the book's illustrated derby. In the individualism derby he submitted this. Then for the famous quotes derby he submitted this. Most of the controversy was over the fact that he recycled the idea so many times no one wanted to see it anymore compounded with the fact that his two biggest prints (LWW and TMNT) are simply depictions of the book title and the origin scene with no commentary or really originality other than the brush stroke distressing. Given that DF really is a talented artist and has done very creative pieces, many including myself got tired of the hackneyed pandering.

Re: Knotty Celts



You should shrink it down on the shirt methinks... and then you can change the name while you're at it. Any maybe list tour dates or something more to make it more band-like.

And the shadow is backwards anyways... That would bug me. Unless the artist intended it that way?

Heh, cat-owl, cool! I guess I haven't gotten there in the series yet. Speaking Avatar/airbender... I got called to be an extra in the live-action movie that's happening. Looks like it's not going to work out though, d'oh.

Not that the winner is based on friends. It's just nice to know others share your sense of humor.

Re: Gibblies anime band



First thought, girl in third panel is weirding me out. Didn't quite nail the angle there.

Second thought, other than that looks great. Really has the quasi-traditional shoujo feel to it.

Third thought... Oh how I want to see a "The Ghiblis" shirt now. =D

I wouldn't wear it... But I've got a 3 year-old that'd rock it all day - and twice on Sunday. Good stuff.

You may be thinking of the album cover for Kodo's Mondo Head. That's what it made me think of. It's similar in that it has an octopus playing the drums, but visually looks somewhat different. That's one of my favorite album covers of all time (and the drum work is incredible and great for demo reels ).

A.MAZ.ING!!! I would buy two, at least. Who wouldn't love a cephalopod playing the drums? Interesting fact: Octopi are one of the few animals capable of learning through observation.
Anyhoo... GMV! Good luck!

Goodluck.



Hmm, the rest of the design meaning the square AND the tour start date/pi decimals at the bottom, or is it really just the square that bugs you?

Thanks for the input!

Hopefully not as well as QBF. For the record I voted for QBF and wanted it to print given the absolute Kazaam (1996) that did print in the exercise derby. I felt that momentum was completely lost in the double take and it edged a lot of deserving designs. If this doesn't get rejected but doesn't print, I hope it doesn't get an HM because of all the derbies, the double takes are supposed to be dedicated to rewarding quality that was missed not joke fads that fizzled.

Thanks, imso. Yeah, I liked the first background too (and it took way longer to do than it should have cus PS didn't like me pasting all those numbers in there in a big chunk for some reason...) but I can see how people thought it might be too distracting. I kinda fancy this one here cus I thought I was clever shaping the text like a circle hoho.

Sweet! Actually it's interesting you say that about the text, because I thought it worked well without it too and almost submitted it like that... but not sure if it would still be considered on topic without the band name displayed?
I dig these colors too, thanks.
