I knew that was possible, but I figured this response would come in handy again(and again and..), but in the future, I would just have to cut and paste.

Rockwell is probably my favorite American artist and while this is in a much different syle this his, I think it still captures the feeling of his work. I love the inky sketch look and the varying line widths. Some one had commented on it looking French and I'd have to agree, almost like a drawing for a fashion line. Great work and fantastic first entry, I look forward to more from you.

BTW if this doesn't get a HM or EC print here, since it's probably not going to fog, resub it to threadless, it'd be a shoe in.




I'm really overwhelmed by the positive feedback I've gotten here, thank you so much for commenting this! It means a lot, and thanks for suggesting threadless ^^ I'll try and find my way around that site and you can bet on seeing it there sometime soon ^^ Cheers!

I'd also pick one up if submitted else where, favorite woot design to date.

As a holder of an art history degree, I would call this one more of a reimagining than Great Wave.

My problem isn't so much the rejection; my problem is that the choices of what to reject this week seem needlessly arbitrary.

If I have a HM I will wait for the double take derby... thx everyone for the support...

I had some free time today and I guess I will be sending my next derby design pretty early... I have something nice going on and why not in orange? It's true that Woot did not make many oranges t-shirts lately.

Re: Woman with Yellow Hair - Pablo Picasso.



This design is really great, with a great color combination. And yes, more orange. It is sad that designs with much less style than this are in the fog. I hope this gets printed somehow, somewhere.

Darquis wrote:No, and this one deserves to stay in, but http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=44372 this entry, for example, is the original work of art, with guns, in green pixelated art. I don't have anything against the piece or the artist, but Draug is right in saying there is a lot of inconsistency if Vitruvian man there is allowed in and others are not.



I completely concur. the vitruvian man is a total sham to keep in. but this isn't the vitruvian man thread, and IS another thread people have complained about seemingly without understanding the theme.

Woot is always inconsistent. It sucks. But in this case, they have omitted pieces that should be rejected, not rejected pieces that should have stayed.

It is more of a reimagining, but also MORE OF A REINTERPRETATION OF THE TITLE. The other great wave is less reimagining and also far less reinterpretation. The theme doesn't say "DONT REIMAGINE." it says "DO REINTERPRET THE TITLE". An on-theme design -can- reimagine, but MUST reinterpret. Many solely re-imagine.

The rejections this week have literally been the most on-topic, justifiable, correct set of rejections in probably months. Art History major or not, that clearly doesn't prevent you from misinterpreting the theme.

Tough luck on not making the final cut, but I really hope this does get printed somewhere else - please let us (or just me!) know if it does

Reimagining is a bad word. If I introduced it, that's my mistake. Reinterpreting is a better one, and as regards the title, I feel like Great Wave did more (but still feel Starry Night did enough, but this is moot now - unless it gets an honorable mention, which I hope that it does).

But arbitrary seeming rejections? You bet.

Copyright can expire because the idea of copyright is to support the notion of benefiting the public. If you keep something private, then you needn't worry about copyright -- you aren't selling anything, and the public can't see it.

As soon as it's put out for public consumption, you are contributing to the public discourse. And you can sell your work and ensure that others do not copy your work.

The catch is that the benefit granted to you -- the limit that people can not copy your work -- goes away over time. You benefit from the copyright by limiting what the public can do, but after a time that limitation no longer exists to the benefit of everyone. Not to mention that the idea of copyright is to motivate creators to release works to the public -- by granting a perpetual copyright, you end up stifling that creativity as people treat art as a lottery ticket, rather than creative expression. Artists should benefit, but they benefit from the public. After a time, the public should benefit too.

Re: Honey Is Sweeter Than Blood



I thought this was the best of the bunch. Excellent design. My only suggestions would be submit earlier (but greatness can't be rushed), or improve the thumbnail.

I hope to see this print in a second-run derby!

Thanks! Unfortunately I didn't get the idea until early Monday morning, so there was no helping that. As for the thumbnail, I'm still figuring out that science. I appreciate the suggestion though!

Your art knowledge is lacking. The text reads "Ceci n'est pas une pipe". Also, your article genders are very confused.

Since it's gotten such a positive response here from the community, I was thinking about resubmitting it as a daily entry. Do you think that would be wise? Or should I just submit it to Threadless and hope for the best?

I haven't bought a white shirt yet, but I voted for this one and will buy it if in the top 3.

Good Luck.

I can't tell you what would be best, I've never submitted - does woot allow you to submit while it's up for votes at threadless? I don't think they do - I'm sure it'd print at threadless eventually, but what's the hold length for shirt.woot? (that's assuming you don't get an HM - I wouldn't be shocked)

I feel really really dumb for not noticing that the original piece of art is a "shark in a tank" and this is also of a "shark in a tank".

I'm only thankful that no one was around to see the dumb smile i had when i got that.

Even though you didn't win, I want you to know that this shirt is one of the best shirts I've ever seen in my life. If I would have been allowed to buy this, this shirt would have been one of my favorites.

It has the same subtle humor as the Villainous Victorian Velociraptor did back when it was being sold and THATS one of my favorite shirts.

I hope that this shirt gets an honorable mention and that it will be up for voting again because I will be crossing my fingers for it.

This shirt is completely original, well drawn, and well thought out. It deserves to be in the reckoning for everyone to where. I wish I could say the same for a certain piece thats already in there.

Once again, good luck if you get the honorable mention, I'll be pulling for you.

Would you kindly...
