Re: Pine-Scented National Park



Thanks guys, Im glad nobody's come in with the beat-down stick over it, haha. I do wish I could touch it up a little bit, maybe make the stings the lighter color. I also had a trio of hikers at the bottom of the design at one point but I removed them. Ah well, I doubt it's going anywhere, but I'm really glad you enjoyed the joke XD.

You could probably intern at a zoo too if you so desire;) I did watch the elephants quite a bit because they were near the areas I was generally working, and I'd look at the bears when I got a chance to go to another area of the zoo. You're right, elephants don't do well at zoos, they need more room... I think the elephants from my zoo were recently sent to a bigger park because of that. I like otters and beavers too, though there weren't any beavers at my zoo. Where have you seen pika? I don't know much about them but just googled pika and they look adorable!

I mostly did 'hands on' work with the traveling kid zoo animals, like hedgehogs, snakes (eep! couldn't believe I was holding a snake!), turtles... I wish I got to have more hands on with the bigger animals but the keepers of each animal were pretty territorial with feedings and things like that (I'm guessing there may have been rules too).

I did get some closer access though. For instance, the tiger keeper let me come to the keeper part of the tiger area and put my hand up against a mesh part of the cage (couldn't have put my hand through) and I felt the tiger's breath against my hand, which was kind of awesome. He was friendly and came up and chuffed at me (I spent a lot of time with the tigers so he knew me). A chuff is like a tiger greeting/friendly noise. It's a great feeling to be chuffed at!:D



That is so neat! I would really like to do something like that. I also know that some of the theme parks, like Sea World and ?? (the one in Tampa) have programs where you can go behind the scenes for a day and see animals up close. I've never actually seen a pika in a zoo or elsewhere. There are some videos online, like the one below, but how I found out about them in the first place was a wonderful book called Miracle on Square Top Mountain by Robert Franklin Leslie. He is 'most famous' for his book The Bears and I (true story about raising 3 orphan bear cubs) that Disney made into a movie starring Patrick (son of John)Wayne. I love your tiger story and the whole experience sounds amazing! http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7066578568747223192#

ramyb wrote:I agree with the first part of this, but when it's a commonly used technique, I think they generally look to execution. That's why I wanted to try to take this one farther away from other similar shirts in terms of composition, and I detailed it much more so that it is more so a scene that you are looking into with a sort of optical illusion, rather than just a lung tree. Again, it's ultimately up to woot, that's just how I see it. If they choose to reject it again, I will continue reworking the design and possibly take it elsewhere, depending on how things go.

Just to expand on this a bit more, just think about some of the other entries in the derby. A tree and a deer on the shirt: do similar shirts exist? Of course they do, but it doesn't really matter. What about creating the shape of a skull, instead of lungs? Has that not been done before? No tree in the middle of a city? With these types of "design" based shirts (as opposed to humorous ones), woot generally chooses to leave things if the execution is different, even if the elements or concept are the same. I don't think this case should be any different. And just to be clear, I don't think any of the shirts I mentioned should be rejected in this case and am not trying to pull anyone into this, I'm simply trying to show where I'm coming from in reposting the design with the edits that I made. If woot decides it isn't enough, so be it, but that was my intention.



Well said.

You're right about all the rules you followed correctly, but just know that woot has a history of rejecting poop jokes. You probably won't fall under the rejectionator's radar unless you start getting massive amounts of votes, though.

This is one of the sickest shirts I've seen on here in a long while. This needs to win. Maybe that's just because I'm a little crazy about cool, Alice in Wonderland references that aren't exclusively feminine, I dunno. But if it doesn't win and you wind up doing a cafepress or something, please let me know so I can buy this. Pretty prease

The only shirt I'd buy. And sadly, I don't think I'll be able to but I voted anyway.

Point understood and taken.

To be honest, the biggest issue is woot's general inconsistency with rejections. As stated before, they've made more tenuous rejections than on designs like this, but they've also let more obvious ones slip by to print, I think. It'd benefit everyone if they'd establish that, for example, no previously used design motifs of any sort are allowed.

'zactly. No one knows what Woot will do, and it leads to speculation and arguements. Right now, no one really knows IF Woot will reject, or WHEN Woot will reject.

Although I've got to say that they seem to have jumped on the rejections a little quicker for this derby.
