Whether it's a destructive inferno, a spark of creativity, or a warm respite from the harsh world outside, fire is one of those things that makes being human a whole lot easier. Since we've done a few elemental derbies before we're challenging you to burn a design onto a shirt that will really spark a discussion the next time we're wearing it. Give us your best fire depictions, fire aftermath, fire-inspired designs. Go!

  • No video games.
  • No Star Wars.
  • No text.
  • No bunnies.
  • No phoenixes. Seriously. You were already drawing one, weren't you? Well start over.

Cool. I'm going to draw a firebird that resurrects itself from the ashes.

Woot should have band fire and ice ying-yang references too.

Probably the adorable one who burps and blows up an entire city on accident.

I'm definitely fired up about this one! The first thing that comes mind is "Flame R e t a r d a n t" Still don't know what angle to work it from...an ant charging into flames? Not sure yet.

Still, this should be fun. Flame on!

Edit: To note, I don't support making fun of the mentally challenged, so I hope it doesn't come across that way with my idea. I just like the play on words. That, and it just the first idea I came up with and I might have a better one.

So you're going to rename it something else to get it past the censors... *sighs*

I took it as a joke.

The first thing I thought of for this new derby theme was Beavis and Butthead yelling "Fire fire fire" lol

Sorry SkekTek,

I didn't intend any harm with that comment. I just figured the fire and ice ying-yang concept would be something that came quickly to a lot of artists.

Well, my first thought was, "I did this for the fall colors derby..."

Considering the number of votes I got, I should probably go with my second thought. Unless I come up with a third.

No, I'm joking. This was a design I did for the Panic! derby in the 60's range of derbies.

And yes, at the time it came quickly to me. But then I got accused of hijacking the Firefox logo. Sometimes you just can't win

Hi all! This is going to be my first derby, I am excited.

Hope I can put something competitive together, I still have a lot to learn. But you gotta crawl before you can walk right?

Good luck!

Good luck asubobo! If you have any questions, technical or otherwise, post 'em in here. People are always eager to help.

I think I'm going to design something in the same style as Cheese It!, called 'Don't play with matches'. Just need to Google my idea and make sure it hasn't been done. :p

Noooooo don't tell people about fire type foxes.

I got a question though. Does an artic hare count as a bunny? What about a Hemu instead of a phoenix?

This confirmed pyromaniac is certainly excited by all the possibilities of this topic, but I refuse to get my hopes up over the derbies anymore. There's usually a vast gap between shirts I would wear vs. shirts that get enough votes to print. I've decided to avoid disappointment and spend my free time this week polishing & refueling the lighter collection, rather than watch this mess burn itself out ...
