You can definitely draw similarities between this idea and Energy Harvester. But I do also think that there is a difference in intent for what is going on in both of these shirts. In Energy Harvest it looks like the plant will be put to use, meanwhile here was just a have a robot (non-living entity) marveling over these plant which is actually living. It's two different takes on a similar idea allowing them to convey two different situations.

I think it comes down to how far in you are willing to look at the picture. I think just going by "Oh hey look, it's a robot holding a plant" is a little too broad to call this shirt too similar to a previous one.

Re: Washington Crossing the Delaware



The state of Washington has tracked the vampiric Delaware to its subterranean lair. Equipped with a Holy cross and a wooden stake the West coast plans to finish off the East coast for good.

6 Colors on Navy

Hope everyone gets a kick out of this one. I had a fun time drawing it. This is the first time I've used a background to pull a design together, and I'm quite pleased with the results.

Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Re: Bird in Space.



Fun concept and good execution of design. I can't help but think, however, how you missed an opportunity to make the helmet of the space suit accommodate a bird's beak. It could make the silhouette more pronounced, exaggerate the subject matter, and bring another bit of hilarity to the design.

Also, the amount of stars could lessen a bit more dramatically toward the edge of the design. Doesn't have to, but it might be something to play with out of curiosity.

Nice detail, though. I like the traction you've got goin' on the bird feet boots. Good luck!

Re: Arroz Con Pollo



The title is a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting. In my imagination, Arroz Con Pollo is the best tag team on the Lucha Libre circuit.

Actually, many works of art often become known by alternate titles, or subtitles that are not originally part of the title. (by popular association)

If there is a derby that is subject to flexible parameters, this would be the one.

This piece is also based on a well known work of art called "Rosie the Robot," whose title and concept are parodied effectively here.

Love the shirt! =)

Re: The Persistence of Memory



I totally dig this, Littleclyde. The play on the latin names is cool and all, but the image is very unusual and aesthetically pleasing all by itself.

It's a great example of how a derby theme can trigger original ideas that the artists would never have arrived at by themselves. GMV!

Re: Inspired by The Great Wave



A must-win, for me. Loved this when you first showed it off, and I too am glad you didn't sub it for Kawaii. Hokusai's GReat Wave is probably the most recognizable piece of Japanese art there is, and you've done a masterful job of capturing the style. Kudos!

Don't worry, MadamAtom has been accusing everyone of using photos and being off topic. Seems someone may be feeling a little grumpy. ;)

Last derby had a design submitted on three different color shirts. (The designed changed color palettes, too.)

So, I don't think you'd get rejected, but you might possibly split your votes.

Re: The Tramp



Is it just me or does the righty tramp's knees appear to bend backwards?

And I really think you should reconsider the shirt color. Something more red, or yellowy?
