Best worn on public transportation.

I would try not to wear this around any homeless though. That isn't something that they can easily do and I would feel like s#!+ for implying it.

Totally agree about the homeless thing -- don't wear this while volunteering at the shelter!

Yes!

thank you very much! I do not work in advertising -- my experience is much more direct. I'm a reformed smelly programming nerd.

Re: W.W.Z. Mechanized Military Infantry



I am really hoping this prints. I was seriously bummed when it didn't last time. Woot really needs to start thinking about these types of shirt designs because the cute shirts limit their market. I can’t imagine buying most of the shirts that they print.

Also, I don’t know why they haven’t brought back classic shirts!

renegadetim wrote:I REALLY thought this design would be in the Fog and possibly print this Double Take with the amount of support it received in its previous derby. As I stated on Tilteed, Kev, I really hope this robot gets printed sometime in the future. This was the most popular he's been so I thought it had a chance. I suppose it might still receive an honorable mention. I also hope Adder's comments there are foreshadowing for either this design or one of your robot designs to print in the future.



Thanks for the support, Tim. I was a bit surprised to see this drop so far from the Fog after spending the better part of Friday in there. But that's kind of the way the double take goes, so it's best to just accept it as that . I'd like to see this find a home somewhere (obviously)--in my design portfolio, this is the one I'm most proud of.

P.S. - I've been busy the past few derbies so was unable to really comment or discuss as much but I did vote for the robot designs you submitted. "Acquired Taste" and the cyber punk one are all I remember, but I must ask... Has our/your little robot put on some pounds?



Hasn't put on any weight, this was just the last time you saw my windup ;). The hefty one was the steambot and then you saw the cyberpunk robot (in so much as I can call it that--I'm now finding out that it's a no-no to have robots in cyberpunk).

Anyway, I try to project different personalities in each.

One of my favorites too. I'd love to get it someday.

This is an extremely creative and well-executed design. What type of dinosaur is that one on the right?

Your designs are great, midgerock. I have your panda t-shirt and have gotten many questions and compliments. What a great conversation starter. Now I hope this one prints. I'm really sick and tired of cutesy t-shirts, too.

Out of all the derby entries this week, I think this would be the only shirt I'd definitely purchase.

zpank wrote:Wow! This is the most beautiful piece of all to me. I love nature. I love how the raptor is outlined in the negative space. also, the diagonal lines which compose lengths of aurora, how their warm gradient of color leads the eyes back and forth across the void of hawk. Black shirt/backgrounds are best and highly versatile and stylish. The bright white stars are geometrically interesting in and of themselves and in the overall arrangement and gleaming against the background a very cold night is created and contrast with the aurora. Thus The visual circuit is completed and begins anew: the aurora, the raptor, the constellation.





Thanks a lot for your great comment , glad you liked , cheers! (o;

This x2. Simply put... Raisins. SUCK.

Re: Cosmic Eagle



The grayish clouds in the far background look exactly like the photo-based cloud brushes you used in your last shirt, which was rejected for said photo brushes.
