Re: Comparing Apples to Oranges



While my husband has been buying things off of Woot for a while now, I'm relatively new to it and have just started getting interested in the T-Shirt design aspect of that...so, maybe my opinion doesn't matter that much...

...however, I think this one may be my favorite shirt design in this derby, which is saying something because I think this derby produced some of the best designs in a while. This one, though, is so simple yet so clever. I think I might get one if/when it prints.

Re: Cookiethulhu



OK, I'm not into the alt-sci-fi references, so I had to look up "Cthuhlu" (I know, I guess I'm not even a nerd)... BUT now that I know what Cthuhlu is, and all I know about Sesame Street's "original" idea of Cookie Monster, and his bit about if the moon were a cookie...

THIS SHIRT IS TOTALLY ON TOPIC...

Just as we give personality and a soul to "Mother Earth" or "the man in the moon", this cookie earth was given a personaily and feelings, expressed in it's face at being attacked by this monstrous, other-worldy being...

Wouldn't we as humanity have these feelings if anything showed up and attacked our planet. We give humanity to our earth. Without humanity, it's just another rock buzzing around a star. We are this planet's "soul"... SO, extrapellate that into earth being a cookie, and Cookiethuhlu taking a chunk out of it... The humanity of cookie-earth would be in shock and terror.

That makes this shirt totally readable, and the personified cookie-earth is certainly anthropomorphic enough... so it wasn't given washboard abs, long legs or a handlebar moustache, but it was given fear and terror and awe.

IMVHO, I think this shirt is superb, very well executed. The depth of space and the lighting is interesting and well laid out.

Which program(s) do you use to create your work?

In for one with no text. PLease. This will go perfectly with my Donut Panic, and that donut needs a friend.

But donuts cannot read, so no text Please woot, let it happen.

I was born and raised in Plano, any help for hometown cred?

Hint, the one that got bumped out of the fog was in 9th place. i.e. not going to print.

Hopefully that takes the edge off.

It's just about as poorly executed as your standard "dad joke."

You know, the kind that is followed by "heh, GET IT?"



Dads everywhere, and their two white horses falling in the mud, are crying that you'd equate them with this low-brow trash.

There is a very basic difference, in that here we have an exceedingly forced joke for the sole purpose of creating a mario shirt. Also, most dads probably don't have a recorded history of committing fraud, or supporting moms who do so even more blatantly. Dad jokes exist in a much purer realm.

Couldn't agree more here. I saw the thumbnail and thought it might be one of your better designs. The text murders the shirt. "Show, don't tell" often works with shirts too.

Thanks aksthomp! You need to be able to accept the idea of an earth cookie to appreciate the shirt, that's for sure. ;)

I use Photoshop. (Version 6.0 released in 2000, it's pretty old but not bad)

Thank you everyone who posted thoughtful comments and/or support for this design.

Cool. I use Photoshop too... I just entered my first derby this time around, so I still have a lot to learn. I may need to pick your brain sometime!

this shirt used too much copyrighted material without enough parody.



So it would have been ok to "copy" things if, say, the lemons were in the act of setting a house on fire or something? I know the Aperture logo is from the game, but you never see it in such a context as an ad for Cave's lemons. You never even see the lemons if I recall right. How is this not a parody of a quote from the game?

I get what your saying, I just don't really understand where the line gets drawn on what's a parody and what's "stealing" from something, I guess...

Re: You've been targeted for baconation



While wendy's may have a trademark on Baconator. Trademarks do not work in the same way Copyrights do. It's very unlikely someone would get this shirt and the Baconator sandwich confused. That is what trademark is designed to protect. It would stop someone else from using the name on a similar product. So Burger King can't come out with a Baconator sandwich, and you could not sell a shirt that had a baconator sandwhich on it, but you can sell a Baconator shirt that is a parody of the terminator. Additionally, this would not be protected under copyright law because the one word "Baconator" is not included in the list copyrightable works. Just thought you might want to know that.
