tgentry wrote:The theme was How Do They Work. It's pretty clear cut: "For this derby we want you to show us how things work OR, in the event of your not knowing exactly, how you THINK they work." Does this design show how the TARDIS works, or even how the designer thinks it works? It's pretty clear that it doesn't. There was plenty of room for showing how the TARDIS works, the designer could have done a cut away and just showed gears or something, and that would have been enough to fit the theme. I don't see how you can look at a design "abstractly" or "aesthetically" and have it fit the theme when the theme is SO clear cut and literal. It's spelled out very clearly. I'd be seriously disappointed if this got printed over entries that were actually on topic. I could have dumped a half dozen designs on this derby and explained it away that it "abstractly" met the theme guidelines. Hopefully that's not a precedent woot is willing to set.



The classic comics style derby was the same way. In the end, people who worked to stay on theme were punished by non-rejections of stuff that wasn't even trying to be on topic.

Obviously that's what I was thinking...I bet...I can't recall. Thanks though.

That's an awesome looking design. Anything steampunk is great in my book! :D

It'd be great if you could post a larger image so we can see all the fine details & the text.

damn, can't believe this fell out of the fog.

i really hope it gets pulled back in because this is a really cool shirt design.

A steam punk rifle with labels pointing out key features. I would have liked to done an exploded view showing all the workings, but I just ran out of time this weekend.

I'm pretty sure this is my first derby entry that hasn't been vectorized or digitally made from scratch.

Hope you guys you like it.

I'm guessing the wishing well will have to wait for some other time - the sketch and initial inks are done but I'm stalled on where to go from there - color or sepia sketch from an alchemists journal.

I was going for a sketchy rough blue print feel - I hope it didn't take the sketchiness too far.

Re: How Are Books Made?


I love the soft feel of this. It makes you feel warm & comfortable with the colors & style this was done. Looks like something plucked from a children's illustration with it's whimsical nature. Wonderful job! :D

What does a butterfly have to do with a hurricane? I do not remember any butterflies in the area when Ike hit my house.

I love your style, and always vote when I see your shirt. Do you ever have any of your designs printed elsewhere? There were a couple that I would love to buy, but didn't win

It was suggested to make the original more simplified, thought I would give it a shot and see if simple is better.

Awesome! I like the sketchiness myself & certainly doesn't seem like it was overkill.
