Re: Sailing the Catboat by Winslow Homer



SWEET... you nailed the theme AND it's an insanely cute design, on a color that I personally love. Joel Veitch would buy this shirt in a hot second, I'll bet. :D You get <3 and if this doesn't print, I will weep for what humanity has lost.

Yeah, shrinking it down did make it look hinky, admittedly was a little tired of fiddling and my 2 yr old son was climbing all over me ever more insistently.

Thanks. But reread the derby description. Entries are not supposed to be a reinterpretation of the original art - just the title.

Does the binary actually encode a word?
If not, I think that's the only thing I really don't like about this design.

thanks everyone!

@MadamAtom-Ha, I never saw that animation before, it's hilarious. I also never knew that the "Immigrant Song" by Led Zepplin was about vikings.

@spookynutz- Cheers! Now I know who Joel Veitch is. His work is funny and excellent.
I didn't know he was the creator of this wacky Quizno's commercial.

@thatrobert-thanks for posting the idea and title.

Thanks everyone for all of your nice comments. I feel like this design brought me to the next step in coloring.

I must also say that we are officially stumped when it comes to what will fly here on woot.

Thanks again

And yeah, I'd expect a rejection for this even if it does turn out to be on topic.

This is what's gonna happen: I say my arguments, then you say yours, then I say mine again maybe reiterating on some points, and you do the same, then other people say theirs, and then i say mine again. It's a never ending loop that wastes time and comment space. Just look how long it took you to realize that mine and the "daily" are two different shirts. Unless you have the power to conclude this matter, i.e. reject my entry, then once again I say, it's pointless to argue on/off topicness.

Re: The Umbrellas



Thanks everyone for the great response so far. I was starting to think I'd never get this one done, so I'm glad it's being enjoyed. Makes it worth it.

I actually started this design on light blue, then switched to heather grey, and then somehow ended up on asphalt at the last second. I tried not to use it, but the colors just worked so well against it and it made the whole design cleaner looking. Sorry to those adverse to that color, but I had to go with what fit the design the best. If Woot offered silver as a color choice that's what I would have picked.

Thanks again for the support and the votes everyone!

Well, it is supposed to be the red of the shirt - I must have sent the uncorrected version for the detail.... the print-ready files, etc. are all corrected, not that I am a contender. Thanks for pointing that out - we'll see if I have to re-post.

To my Scrabble people - well, I used a bit of artistic license in order to use the words I wanted! I'm not sure but I might have used a letter too many times, too. The score is a total (no bonuses on this board,,,) and poor Seurat has been so upset that he has passed on every turn! All in good fun.

Sorry dude. Everything looks traced... down to the sun =(



This coming from someone using a copyrighted image in your piece? If toby did this using anything other than the original, than it would not have the same effect. Enough changes was made to the painting to make it a parody of the original. And as much as those like Adder wish it wasn't, this is not an art contest, it's a tshirt contest. And this is a VERY clever tshirt.

ps. the only real question i have is why is the seahorse breathing out bubbles?



The hippocampus (a section of your brain partly responsible for long term memory) was named by Julius Caesar Aranzi b/c it looks like a seahorse. The name itself (hippocampus) means that in Latin. Some neuroscience trivia for ya ;)

Somebody needs to invent a new word for how epic this is. This is my favorite of the designs you've done.

edit: I think if fig 1 showed him feeding the baby, 2 showed him throwing out and empty bottle and 3 was the same as it is now, it would be the best shirt ever created.

CAFM. Any minute now, I expect someone to start claiming that printing anything on any shirt is a tired concept that has been done to death.


It GMV as there can never be too many good and different TMNJ interpretations, and I've never seen any version of this before, no matter what excuse to complain anyone may invent.

Re: Flower Carrier



I really like this. It's one that stands on its own if you don't know the title/theme or don't want to have to explain it.
