With a wootoff going on, shirt.woot would be getting a lot more exposure than normal.

Congrats No1!!! Wish I'd seen it before it sold out. Guess I'll catch it when it comes up on the reckoning.

And Poo on the haters. I LOVE IT!

Admittedly I did not vote for this one, though the pun is cool and the execution well done. I just couldn't see myself wearing the shirt and grey doesn't really do it for me. Congrats to the creator though, and what otterific timing with a wootoff - must be nice to see the shirt sold out by noon (and a tad frustrating to think how much it may have sold should there have been stock lol).

Lets see what the other entries bring, some really really cool designs this derby.

Also wanted to add that I am thrilled this shirt sold out. Though I didn't buy one because it's not my style (and I aleady have dozens of Woot shirts), I was getting quite irked by how nasty people get when they don't like a design. I like browsing Derby entries and reading comments but often those comments turn angry, bitter, condescending and disparaging. Constructive criticism is one thing but man, there's been so much hate!

Congrats on the sellout no1!

That panda, with its giant head and features scrunched in the bottom, reminds of the girl in the Prickly City comic strip.

I probably looked at the thumbnail about 10 times til I realized it was a panda
Looked like 2 ninjas shaking hands in front of a keyhole or something

I couldn't figure out what the hell I was looking at for a good two minutes. I could only see two really messed up ostriches.

That's what I was wondering. Hell, I'd even be willing to pay $15 and wait until tomorrow. If only there was a way...If only...

You might even be able to buy it for $10, if there were a $5 coupon code you could use....

I've seen a few comments like that and at first I didn't get it at all because I saw the panda right away but after a closer look, I think I see what people mean:

Toss something out there. Give a reason this has any value. Talk about the artwork, not the fact that you want one. What is it about this design that makes it better? I see worse execution, poor color choices (it will never be visible), incredibly questionable decisions (no color in the head?), and nothing which stands out. The other design isn't exactly exciting either, but this has nothing extra to recommend it, plenty of flaws, and was done years after a tee that no one in the shirt biz shouldn't be 100% aware of. Is it a rip-off? Arguable. But it's not original and definitely similar to another very classic, very well known tee, and I don't see any superior design choices made to justify this one existing.



I just recently received "The Umbrellas" and the black shows up just fine on asphalt. It will show up just fine on this shirt as well, especially since they are large black areas. Adder, you should know that the black is only invisible/prone to disappearing when it is stupidly thin or intricate lines, like in a certain text design that's been sitting on the charts for ages.

As far as the lack of colour in the face - it's shadow. The sun is behind the panda. It's basically a stylized silhouette, and I think it works pretty well.

I think the concept is a bit close to Threadless' but I can see enough differences to give it a clear pass. I'm not so active nowadays, but I remember shirts in the past that you praised (or were at least indifferent to) that had much just as much similarity to another existing design as this one has to Threadless'.

Congrats on your print and the sell-out, no1. I think it's a good one.

Looks like it's still selling pretty good on the second-chance link. Early pace is about one per minute.

Way to go No1!

thanks everyone who made at least somewhat positive comments on this design. i'm kind of leery of reading every comment right now, but this quote, currently the latest, kind of sums up my own opinion of my design.

thanks again!

I haven't seen you in awhile. I was wearing your turtle shirt today! Still one of my favorites.

OK, that isn't true, it was my son's turtle shirt, because he didn't put his clothes away. Besides I lost a little weight and now his M fit better than my old L.

We both have one. It is still in his wear rotation too!


Don't worry mr1, I got both a M and a L Panda for myself. I'm covered for all weights.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.

Don't worry about the few vocal upitty know-it-alls. People obviously enjoyed it enough to quickly sell it out and continue to buy it through the reckoning. It's not always about execution. Feel good about a job well done. When Eeyore and his little sidekick Robin start getting their collective panties in a bunch you know you did something right.

Hey No1

I love this shirt, it appeals to me on every level! I personally think Calvin (Hobbes' boy!) is inside the panda suit wreaking his own brand of havoc.
BTW I looked up the other shirt...
themes are similar but execution is totally different.

PS Like Howard Jones much??

well mine arrived last week. I paid the 5$ for shipping. and WE ALL LOVE IT. the kids figured it out immediately. So if you saw two ninja or whatever in front of a keyhole.... my children saw the panda right off... They named it PANZILLA....... I told them pandamonium... but panzilla it is in this house...

You can Woot! if you want to, you can leave Amazon behind, because if you don't buy the Woot! from the real Woot!, then you're, no friend of mine. Say we can Woot!, we can Woot!, they're doing it from home to home.

I'm still waiting for my Smartpost tracking to be updated to something with an actual verb in it. It doesn't seem to have moved an inch yet. Estimated delivery is the 4th though.

IF IT TAKES 2 WEEKS TO GET A SHIRT, THIS WILL PROBABLY BE THE LAST TIME I ORDER FROM SHIRT.WOOT. AND, I STILL DON'T HAVE CONFIRMATION THAT IT HAS EVEN SHIPPED.
