i agree. I love sketching and have been far too long out of practice since I find it hard to find time lately.

How do you get it to look so nicely sketched digitally without gradients?

I love the Hungry Hungry Caterpillar reference! There are sooooo many things going on in this shirt and sadly I don't get all of them but it doesn't stop me from really really wanting one.

No offense intended, but how does this get around the "Obviously, celebrity author likenesses are off limits" rule?

If anyone else looked at the the shirt referenced earlier, I now know what the book was that I couldn't identify; Twilight. I have to say, I'm kind of glad I couldn't tell...

Yeah... I'm not sure Wifred Brimley would approve of you using him to sell shirts.

drinkingthesea wrote:Shakespeare wrote plays, not books. They are not the same thing. The script of a play is just the blueprint for the performance. It is not intended to be read like a book. This shirt, IMO, is off-topic.



I normally think posts that start with "Well I'm so educated I disagree with you" sound pretentious and Jatravartid. But as a playwright, with a MFA in playwrighting... you're wrong. You're overly generalizing, and you're being diminutive about a form of literature because it also functions in a performance art role?! That's just ridiculous.

ccazabon wrote: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.

To try to say this design falls under the copyright rule alone, is just ignorance or stupidity.



Actually, I don't really give a flying warp about whether there's a copyright violation (guess I never should have mentioned copyright in my response). All I was trying to do was help with the misunderstanding about 'celebrity likeness'. Copyright law, anyway, is so extensively litigated and complex, that I doubt that anyone who misunderstands some arcane portion of it is either ignorant or Jatravartid. To make such an ad hominem comment is just rude and trollish.

A last minute inspiration. I was actually working on a completely different entry since Friday but it just isn't coming together. I wish I had more time for this derby. I love the topic!

True, you didn't say this design was, I was mostly directing my argument against adder who insists that it is definitely against the rules. Yes copyright can be very complex, which on my part I poorly implied when saying that someone stating that this definitely violates it is ignorant to the fact that parody is allowed, even if the process for determining if it is goes into the "grey area"

I guess I would also appear to fall into the same category of simply saying that it's definitely not a violation on my original comment, so I'd rather correct that to say its not a definite copyright violation, or (in my opinion, based on what I know) even close.

I like this design, it definitely makes a statement...even if we aren't allowed to know it ;)

Re: Epic Battle



Must... Have... Precious shirt... We wants it. We needs it!!! In my opinion the battle between the books: HP would win. In my opinion!!! I love LOTR too, just HP more. The battle between these wizards: Gandalf would destroy. The real battle would be between Gandalf and Dumbledore... Yea!

Re: Shelf Life



I love, love, love, love it. I don't wear t-shirts but if this one prints, I plan on buying one for myself, one for my daughter, one for every teacher and librarian and book lover I know.

I'm wondering, though...if it prints, will you tell us all the references? Please???

I'm just guessing but I think the red lion is also part of The Oz series. A red lion is a symbol of courage.

So, am I right?

Doubt it'll be an issue. Let's be honest, it looks nothing like Emily Brontë.

@marzipan', I'm impressed you've seen the show! It is very good, isn't it? Was that via BBC America?

Someone had it on Netflix and I decided to give it a watch. So good. :9

I love those clunky feet of his. I really like that he's a go-getter, rather than a sitter-arounder. I'm rooting for him to catch that fairy.
