Yet another repsected member of the Shirt.Woot community wades into the T-List Awards fray. Put your sleeves together for the mighty JadenKale...
Taco Cat by omnitarian
"Every time I see this shirt, I think 'Damn! This should have been an actual show!' What is not to love? It’s a cat. It’s a taco. It’s a palindrome! It’s Mexican food out and about with his buddy, Guacamole Juan. They’d be a match match made in heaven. Move over, Garfield, Tacocat’s in town!"
Tree of Invention by igo2cairo
"This piece holds a special place in my heart, since I have an affinity for the story of the Nightingale. The bird’s mechanical counterpart, given to the king as a gift, takes center stage while the real nightingale leaves since she is obviously unwanted. That is, until the day where she is needed again because the mechanical bird breaks, leaving the king depressed. While igo2cairo’s piece isn’t about the story, there are lovely details throughout and the piece itself shows the hidden beauty in something modern."
Loose Dips Sink Chips by geekfactor12
"Creator of one of the most successful early prints at woot, Geekfactor never ceases to amaze me with her attention to the joke. Even if her style seems simplistic to some, she makes up for it in copious amounts of humor. This piece is no exception. It’s a great poke at the wartime posters of the past. It’s delightfully tasty tasteful and a great warning to boot!"
Painted with Water by TheInfinityLoop
"One of the things I love about artists is their desire to not only be nostalgic, but to be massively creative at doing so. This tee is a perfect example of my youth. I can’t remember a day that didn’t go by where I didn’t want to paint magical pictures from just dipping a brush in water."
O R’lyeh? by Drakxxx
"If ever there was an unstoppable duo, these two would be it. Drakxxx’s line work matches so well with CrescentDebris’ colours and halftone work. Plus, let’s be honest… it has tentacles. I’m a 'sucker' for a cephalopod with well-defined tentacles."
We'll hear from one more panelist tomorrow, then announce the Shirt of the Year as our our weeklong T-List ceremonies come to a sure-to-be spectacular conclusion!
