The amazing part will be when this manages to NOT sell out, even though people will continue to defend the awful turd-sandwich designs we get through the derby as "cute." Woot doesn't like cute. They like incompetent. Things like this and their inevitable lower-than-sellout sales are proof of this discrepancy.

I still think "Two Be Friends" would have been the far superior "legitimate cuteness" tee, though.

Technically speaking, mutualism is a relationship where both species benefit because each one has something to give to the other.

Agreed on all counts. The fact that neither design really contended in their respective derbies (certainly not as much as other supposedly-cute-without-really-being-so designs) is also, sadly, quite telling.

I really do hope that due to the 4 pieces we got this week, that we get at least one more week of EC's (though that's likely to not happen)

I feel so much less of a man for getting this shirt... but it sparked the cuteness in me.

Wowie! This was a totally unexpected surprise. Many thanks to shirt.woot and especially to everyone who continually support my designs derby after derby. I wish I could give everyone a hug or a hunk of cheese to show my gratitude! Yes!!!

By the looks of this, I'd bet that this was done with one of those DigiPro drawing tablets that has been sold previously off Woot and its affiliates in the past. My guess is that the artist also used Paint.Net to actually generate the design.

This is strictly theory, mind you.

Congrats on the print '88!

You'd likely be wrong on that. I used one of those digipro's and they vacuumed. And there is no way he used one of those AND created it on paint. After seeing many of his pieces before, there's no way he's using Paint.net.


I love my wacom now though. ::hugs tablet::

Much as I abhor internet political discussions and hope this won't lead to any, I gotta say this definitely looks like something straight out of Obama's section of this jibjab cartoon. The colors, the cuteness, the Change... if only it had the background music!

Yes JadenKale, I love my wacom too. This was done on a wacom intuous3 6x8 inch tablet using Photoshop.

I'm going to choose to believe that the 'asp' they are referring to is an abbreviation for an aspen tree and therefore some vague reference to playing on a wooden flute....it's either that or look to the rather more obvious definition which implies playing on top of the hole of a poisonous snake...uh yeah...the shirt is suddenly less cute.

It's from the bible. More specifically, google points to Isaiah 11:8. One of the more irreverent bible references I've ever come across, but I guess it's something.

I have the 9x12 model which is amazing. I need to get some tips from you, I think.

Could you explain what you mean by vacuumed? Just curious to understand that which I probably should have already known.

Ah yes, homosexual men just can't resist hitting on heterosexual guys who've just gotten beaten up for wearing an adorable shirt. What can I say? It gets us going.

What version of Photoshop?

I got the Bamboo Craft bundled with Corel Painter Essentials 4 and Elements 7, but I'm finding that the small size makes it really difficult to get down and draw naturally.

it sucked. you couldn't adjust the pressure when you drew with it. it's good for new users, but not great for what fine detail I wanted to use it for.

I'm jealous now, wish I had the larger 9x12 model too. I don't have many tips other than trying to vary my line weights when drawing and to keep my mind and eyes open to the styles and techniques of fellow artists. You're very talented yourself, so I have to keep an eye on you.

However, I'm not quite sure why this comes in mens sizes?!

I'm a female and order shirts in mens sizes, so I'm quite glad they always offer both. I believe in having sleeves on my clothing. :p

Another translation: "The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest."

"the hole of the asp" as the writeup says is clearly the serpent's dwelling burrow

Maybe that will help put your minds at ease...

I also believe in having sleeves on my shirts. Not only that, but being able to breath while wearing one too.

Having a shirt mold to every contour of your body is wonderful when your a fit 16 yr old girl with all her parts where they should be.

When your a mature woman who has big parts and who breastfed her baby.....well....you really don't want ALL your contours showing. Mens sized Woot! shirts are so much more forgiving lol
