I don't think many people would interpret this shirt as approving of injuring dogs - I mean, I don't interpret a picture of a happy man in a wheelchair to mean that I should go break someone's kneecaps. It seems like a very bizarre jump to make.



I'm a pretty dark and twisted individual most of the time.

I have friends with Collies and when I showed them this, they said it was hilarious. And they would wear it. Great design.

All intellectual property is time limited. Copyright exists until 50 years after the creator's death. Charles Schultz only passed in 2000 so there is still a long way to go before Snoopy is out of copyright.

Fair use exemptions are kind of tricky, parody "is the use of some elements of a prior author's composition to create a new one that, at least in part, comments on that author's works."

  • Blue is the youngest character of this bunch as far as date of creation and target audience.
  • Blue is the only girl of the group (yes, Blue is a girl. And if that isn't enough proof, I was visiting my brother's once while the kids were watching it and Blue was wearing a tutu.)
  • She also appears to be winning.





Don't forget that the original host of Blues Clues was arrested for drug use. Which adds more to the joke.

Yes! And I'd wear them interchangeably. Nice. I liked Stardamsel's version, too, but the colors on this pop nicely.

kinkajou1015 wrote:I wasn't going to vote for this design initially as I personally am not fond of the art style or the color choices, let alone the subject matter, but I always check each entry when I try to vote to make sure, there are several I wouldn't have voted for on thumbnail alone yet detail won me over, and some thumbnails that won me over but details that made me gag.

Then the detail I wasn't really fond of the subject matter like I said, in the sense that I would feel bad with a shirt that had a dog in a pet wheelchair and wearing it would make me feel like I was promoting hurting animals to watch them frolic with these pet wheelchairs. And I also am not a fan of the colorizing technique.

Then BD3D walks in, barks nonsense, and I have to vote +1 to this design, just to spite him, partly because his entry this week fist the thumbnail wins me over but the detail is gah, partly because he has a known history with infringing on other people's work, and partly because I swear I've seen his little white fluffy dog before but I can't place where.

Anyway, I'm just saying, you have my vote, paigeg. I'm not really fond of many of your derby entries (really the derby 183 entry you did was the one I like the most of the entries I see), but I'll give you a vote to try and rise.



Kindof a strange take, but OK. My intent was more to show the happiness of a pup given a new chance at life, and the utter resilience our pets have, if we just give them the opportunity. They don't sit whining about being 'disabled'. Get it? Whining? Urrrggggh!
Thanks for the mention of the Stars entry - the nebula, or Jack Lalane? I appreciate you don't care for most of my subs. Neither do I, frankly. I'm trying to find my 'voice', as it were - my style. Obviously, I don't really have one. But as a rank amateur, I just do this for fun, and to learn.
Thanks for the vote, whatever prompted it.

hyuk. I had to hit reply just to see what 'bloodclot' was inserted for. But you actually wrote that!
I'm a fan of your style, for the most part, but I'm also wary. I Googled the crap out of that Maltese, because the style just doesn't fit the rest of the design. Came up empty. So, due-diligence done, GMV. Though, I still think the style difference between that one element and the rest of the piece is jarring. Doing the Maltese in the same style wouldn't have hurt it a bit, and might have rescued votes from those too gun-shy to suspend disbelief. JMHO.

  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • You make me feel like I am whole again.




Thanks Robert!

I hope you enjoy. Please vote...quickly.



Thanks for the quote.

Paige,
I always love your opinion. The style difference was intentional, and the votes lost wouldn't make a difference to me. I did that so I could use it as the thumb, for those that like cute, fluffy designs and not one person noticed that the dog holding the leash is my logo "BlindDog" in a tux. But this design has a message, "Don't Judge me!"

I have been singled out, not for using other people's art, but for being a loudmouth. There are so many others here that try to get away with copying, and get rejected. I'm not the only one, but I am the sacrificial dog. I'm ok with that.

I apologize for the controversy I caused on your doggy wheels, but you got a vote out of it. I will continue to submit my designs in derbies that merit my time, but I am focusing on my tattoo designs. They are doing very well and I love doing them.

On another note, my 7 Samurabbits that woot rejected has been picked up and produced by SiqueGear.com and will be on sale for $15, next week. I will put a link in my signature for all those that PM'd me that they wanted one if I ever printed it(15 wooters told me they wanted one). I'm doing a 400 shirt run in ALL sizes, from small youth sizes all the way up to XXXL ($18.50 for 3XL).

Thanks for your support through all the controversy, maybe the dust will settle and the drama will cease, but I doubt it. That never stopped me before, so why start now? A little drama never hurts, in fact it just brings attention to my designs.

Sincerely,
Bruno (aka BlindDog3D)

I noticed, and I presume I wasn't alone, since he all but leaped out and licked me on the nose. It seemed evident enough that I didn't think it needed mentioning.
