The percentage has to be waaay up there. In it's own sad, pathetic way... it's kind of impressive how Ramy constantly churns out the same cutesy, artless image.
How many of shirts of the same damned rabbit can people stomach to own?
Looking in my closet, I see 8 Ramby shirts with bunnies on them, and on Friday it will become 9.
Forget winning derbies. I want a shirt that deserves $1,000 to win, that's what it's all about. In a heartbeat! Rehashing old designs is boring.
Ramby's designs deserve to win over 90% of the other shirts printed, and over 99.9% of the artsy junk that some people think should win.
If it would look good framed on a wall, then it has NO place on a shirt or winning a derby.
If you want art, go to a museum. If you want awesome shirts, like the ones Ramby does, go to Woot.
The simple fact is that Ramby has sold more shirts on Woot than any other 3 derby shirt creators combined, and that is counting Tjost. If you don't count Tjost, you need 5 or more designers to catch him.
You can wish and want all day long, but that is not going to change the fact that many of the voters and buyers, myself included, come to this site to see what shirt a few specific people put up, and Ramby tops most people's list.
Most of us dont care about anatomical precision, realism, or art. We want something that looks cool and would make an awesome wearable shirt. This design is one of only 3 or 4 in this derby that fits that definition.
