I really like it, and would want one, except for it looking like he only has one leg.

It kind of makes it look like the shirt/print came from a seconds/irregular bin.

Hrm.

I'd never heard of the original; the first search link I clicked led me to a neat article on it, whose comments inlcuded a link to an artist's response to the original.

I'm not saying you ripped it off, because it's an easy enough idea to have ... but it might be a copyright issue for Woot.

This looks great! I second everybody who said they saw it in the Kawaii thread and was glad you saved it for this perfect theme. gmv.

Thanks for your kind words, jbb04. I struggled a great deal with the symbol and tried many different designs... none of which seemed to work. I was really working to get a windmill signal, but it didn't really work. In the end, I tried to make the bat signal look like the edge of the shaving basin Don Quixote wears. In any case, I appreciate your support and like your work.

I think adding elements of modern pop culture into a classical work is on topic, since the title is "Don Quixote" and the work represents a modern interpretation of a archtype character in a classic style. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it.

Re: Mucha's Zodiac RESUB



I am... hesitant about the color plus the shirt color. Would anyone else be feeling it more if the design were on a different colored shirt?

It's a great idea but I think it's weird you have them drawn in such clashing styles.

CityVelo wrote: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!



Definitely thought about it, ultimately I decided it was funnier this way. Thanks for the comment.

Yeah, I don't dispute that, and I will also say I like the shirt. However, the derby clearly asks for interpretations of actual art titles. I can't pretend like the Mona Lisa is actually called "No Eyebrows Lady" and then submit a shirt featuring tons of women with no eyebrows. Even though the subject of the painting is a woman with no eyebrows, or in this case, dogs playing poker, I can't submit my interpretation of the painting based on the subject. I have to do it based on the title. Knowing the title is "A friend in need", this interpretation of the title makes absolutely no sense.

... and that's about it.

To say your comment is a stretch is a bit of a stretch in and of itself.



Well, considering that leaves and notes on a musical staff are the main concepts in each piece, it seems relevent.

And the artist him (her?)self is acknowledging the similarity...

It is a beautiful design, but I wouldn't expect it to withstand rejection.



To the artist: you have great talent, so I hope you keep entering derbies.

Ugh. I hate having to defend my art, buy here goes...

Just as Rembrandt's painting Syndics of the Drapers' Guild is commonly referred to as The Dutch Masters (thanks to the cigars), A Friend In Need, as well as any of the other dogs-playing-poker paintings, viewed by itself is often referred to as Dogs Playing Poker. See: Google Image Search.

It seems a weak point, but if the Powers That Woot feel the same as the naysayers, I'll take my consolation prize (the home version board game) and go home.

Re: Waterfall, by M.C. Escher



I like the design, but it would greatly depend n the color of the shirt it's on (that green in the picture doesn't work for me)

Omelets made great... this is SO appropriate here on Cape Cod, where they have been disputing back and forth for YEARS about putting a wind farm off the coast.

I love the design! I want one!
