Re: Hmm...tastes like chicken



Thanks guys, I tried to find a way to get the idea across as, uh, comforting as could be. I figured that the idea was ridiculous enough that the idea that different meats could be culled together from chickens would keep people from analyzing it so deeply.

In retrospect, the shelves with the meat names on it would have done the trick. Thank you for the good ideas

Re: The Sound Barrier



This shirt is the best trololo shirt i've seen so far. I would wear this proudly. (even though i'm not sure how it fits the theme but i really do not care)

It's great you're doing that, paigeg. Thanks for the encouragement.

@Jedigreedo & doomferret - thanks so much! They may not have appealed to everyone but I have a big soft spot for these creepy guys. They will be back someday... with reinforcements....

parrotice wrote:I don’t get the animosity for what seems like every designer that uses a different style. What's the deal with that? This shirt is funny! Perhaps the joke was missed? The shirt is saying that a certain author who butchered the vampire genre with sparkling vampires killed the genre. It's hysterical! And the graphic is perfect. Love that no-face "caution" guy! I’d definitely wear one.

Sheesh.



+1, you're looking too far into it Adder. It's not about literally killing vampires, it's more of the idea of what kills the vampire-ness. The current crop of "vampires" are so far off from the original concept that it's essentially killed what makes them vampires in the first place.

At least that's my feeling.

But I would love to hear you talk about the composition. How you came up with the idea and how you decided to execute it in this way.

Thanks.

Good luck with this one.

And to all the people who don't know what to vote for, please vote for this, because I'd love to wear it.



Well I will start off by saying thank you, I am really glad you like this shirt.
The idea was actually from a friend of mine that said they have been looking for a shirt with a tree but instead of leaves they want books. I thought it was a wonderful idea so why not make one. I talked to Watchercnh who does the drawings and we went with it. We had this drawn up for a few weeks just hoping there would be a derby we could use it for. I almost used it for the "Earth Day" but didn't think it would fit the theme that well.
At first for the coloring I had inked it in black and I really didn't like the way it looked. It was just too much of a bold outline. Thats why I went with dark brown for the ink color. The rest of the color I just wanted to make really natural and not so saturated. And thats about it, I was happy the way it came out when it was done, but even happier that everyone is supporting this. So once again thank you to everyone it is much appreciated!

Re: How a Kitten Works



You know what this design needs? A big rejected stamp for violating the rule of not writing a thesis on a shirt. I've got to agree with adder that without the text, this design is just a picture of a cat.

If this was done by someone who could actually graphic design, this shirt would be amazing, but sadly the emotion and the thought behind this shirt just isn't enough for me.

Wow, harsh... If you looked at my other designs in this derby alone, you would realize that this is a little away from my normal style... I just wanted to try something new, and It's doing well...

thanks for the support everyone,

and I'm sorry you don't like it Adder, maybe you'll like my entry for next week, k?

You really dont get the joke? You seriously cant understand how writing a book about vampires that sparkle, which then becomes a movie, that is then shoved down our throats by the mass media, kills vampires for those of us with half a brain? Seriously?

Good stuff. I missed this one earlier. I think it's a bit monochromatic -- I have trouble seeing the details of the organs. I'd like to see more of your stuff in the next derby.

I'm still doing that for my friends/peers. I really hope you get more votes, because I'd buy one for myself, and probably several more for my siblings! This is a great way to visualize the difference, since the pictures are funny but effective. That way, anyone who reads the shirt will be more likely to remember the differences!

Ehwell wrote:I'm going to feel stupid if I'm wrong... But shouldn't it be "write a book about a vampire whom sparkles."

Because you would say "write about book about him" not he, "a vampire" is the indirect object in this case, and who (or as it should be whom) is referring to the vampire.



Actually, its correct. Because "who" is the subject of "sparkles". You would only use whom if there was another subject..like "Edward is the vampire whom I hate."
