Many folks dislike white, so I'm glad it's on a colored shirt. Besides, the pages won't show up if it was on a white shirt.

Still, if that's what you want, just add bleach.

That shirt is great (I love that The Watchmen was used). The shirt was maybe used for inspiration, but it's a completely different shirt. Also, while maybe a bit off topic, does anyone know what book the monster with the apple is from (second row from the bottom)? I can only think of Where the Wild Things Are and The Very Hungry Caterpillar...

Oh my...

I almost clicked right past this design, thinking 'another Reading Rainbow reference'. I'm glad I didn't. I completely fell into this design and in searching for references. Everywhere I look I see an old friend.

Beautiful work, PP. You've outdone yourself.

Dare I say this entry would be even better without the text? If anything, I'd say the text is redundant to what the art conveys.

Very nice!

If you actually want it on blue, you will probably need to resubmit with your detail and thumbnail on blue.

And what's in the lower-left corner? Can't see it on the shirt detail.

Re: Shelf Life



wow. so much detail.... still trying to find all the references.

of course there is the wizard of oz with the yellow brick road and the emerald city. not sure whteher the red shoes belong in there as well or to the fairy tale 'the red shoes'.
the rose from beauty and the beast.
the queen of hearts
is that red planet in the upper right corner?

but for the life of me I can't seem to figure out the strawberry or the lion :D

Artists will always have fans and critics...I just can't understand why your critics are so angry.



Ramy's critics are angry because they've seen the same general designs from him year after year. The same consistency that his fans love drives his critics nuts because they don't see any growth or development (although fans might call that "perfecting the style"). There are other factors, but that's the big one from my observations.

As for this shirt, I am a big Dr. Seuss fan and see no disservice being done to the good doctor here. It's a fan shirt with obvious love for the source material, and I'm not going to fault Ramy for that.

Being a later submission, I'll say the odds of making it into the fog will be slim, but lets still try to get some votes (and a HM) here!

Interesting that 2 people called attention to copyrighted characters in this and Ramyb's Dr. Seuss...but the same people seem to have no problem with Mark Twain's visage being on 2 fogged shirts..last time i checked thats a "celebrity author likeness". Where's the rage there? Oh, maybe Adder is just misreading the rules so s/he can complain about the designer since the design has no fault..i see.

They totally have done that, and there's loads of how-tos using real books on the net if you want one

Also I would wear this, so voted!

Here´s also, a link for a larger preview of the design - Unwritten Preview



I dunno, but I kind of think you staggered the momentum on your original entry with this really minor alteration resub. I think it might be far better to beg and plead with woot privately to let you make such a small change before printing instead of resubbing. They have made small changes like that before.

In general, woot considers currently alive people, or recently dead folks, as 'celebrities'. Someone who died in 1910 doesn't fit that criteria so much. and copyright is copyright. lawsuits abound on copyright violations.

I guess you´re right, but most of all it was a question of bad timing. At the time I was submiting this version was when the other entered the hotness zone and started gaining a lot of votes. Either way it was never in a position of entering the fog, let alone having a chance to print, so it´s all good...

bluejester wrote: Also, and I know I've said this about other designs like this before, and honestly it's just me trying to think ahead--but when you do placement of objects on a shirt think of placement of anatomy as well. Although this isn't outright a boob shirt, if the books were any farther apart it runs that risk. As it is, I can still think of a few risque remarks about "Opening up the covers, and skim through the good parts" based on the placement of the books here.

Not trying to be cruel or too goofy here, just trying to point out why this design might make the lady folk hesistant.



Mmkay, speaking as one of the ladyfolk, I must let you know that this is not one of the shirts I'd worry about being a "boob shirt." There are certainly shirts out there where the design would be obscured, or taken in the wrong way (though admittedly I've never had it happen), but this isn't one of them. If this prints I will buy it with no hesitation whatsoever.

Point being, this still is NOT copyright violation. Not even close.

consider this: woot included the "no star wars" rule, which would be redundant if "no copyright" was the same as no parody, which it's not. If they didn't want parody, they would either say "no parody" or "no pop culture references" which they've done before.

that squiggle definitely helps, but (for me at least) it probably would help if his facial expression was a little more angry/sad

nice design though
