Thank you for the BLA ThatRobert. I was hoping this design would be a more popular with the Woot! crowd but sometimes landmarks just suck! Thanks again for the recognition.

It's rather depressing to me seeing great artistic work like this outside of the fog. I hope you get a last minute push to the top you deserve it. Excellent work.

Re: The Rainguard



I LOVE THIS. I'm moving to Seattle/Bellevue at the end of the year and therefore need this shirt to print. And I *will* be one of those obvious outsiders proudly using an umbrella.

Also, I like the rounded bottom; reminds me of a raindrop.

I really LOVE your shirt! It's very clever and creative. I hope it gets a chance to print someday. (Btw, the person wrapped around in the tentacle is a nice touch)

Nickel and copper mining come in a close second but are highly influenced by the economic prosperity of the citizens of Couch. Obesity, apathy, and lethargy are common social ills that have plagued Couch for many years due, in part, to the natural splendor of the area and the easy-going nature of the citizenry. In addition, as entertainment technology has advanced, national productivity levels have decreased sharply in accordance.

It's the idea that they would build the most mundane monument in the history off mankind in a place called Intercourse. I suppose the joke is the disconnect, which, in a weird way, you got.

It's silly, I admit it.

6 colors on light blue.

edit: I forgot to add that the seven statues are the seven lucky gods, and the red things in the front are Daruma dolls.



I will buy 5! I have written blog posts about Maneki Neko and Daruma:

This whole "controversy" is pretty amusing. If I may inject some logic here, The Appalachian Mountains cover a huge portion of the eastern side of the US. I think if the shirt was actually offensive to everybody in that region, there is no way it could garner the votes that it has.

For the most part, the people that seem to be offended by this are people that are offended on behalf of those poor downtrodden Appalachian folks.

As somebody who grew up in those mountains, and continues to live amongst them, I would like to ask that anybody who feels the need to defend us, or be offended for us, to save it. We aren't feeble or dumb and we actually have a great sense of humor as well as pride and we don't need all of you overly PC nitwits getting your feathers ruffled over a stupid shirt. You want to take up a cause, go feed some homeless people in your home town or adopt a highway. Put that energy into anything that isn't self righteous BS and self indulgent indignation.

Is this on black or navy? It looks black on the comp and thumb, but looks blue on the shirt mock-up.

If this had been about any ethnic group it would never have seen the light of day-- so why is it okay to say about people in a particular region of our country? This (fecal material) propagates a negative stereotype held by many ignorant and close-minded people --yes, some people think this is true, and some think it's comical rather than the despicable insult that it truly is.



I agree with this - replace "Appalachia" with any ethnicity you want and it would be rejected. I do not find this funny (or accurate).

I'm not the rejectionator, but I agree that your design is "off topic". I can see no discernable relation to the derby theme, New Landmarks, other than your title. If I saw someone walking down the street wearing your shirt, there's nothing about it that would make me think New Landmark.

I think the mid-west is boring.

Replacing mid-west with an ethnicity would make the above statement racist. I don't know why you would though, because the term "mid-west", like the word "Appalachia", is not an ethnicity to begin with.

I still don't really get it. The clothespin is in Philly, but moving it west really doesn't make it a 'new' monument.
Oh, and the clothespin is doubly mundane, since there's one in Belgium, too.

>rimshot!< Nice job, Wences, and somewhat different from most of your entries - it didn't have the 'walmazan' look from the thumbnail. Less shading and texturing, I think.
Love and hate the joke. I'm a little ambivalent, since I really do not like the fact that Americans are so obese and rely so heavily on fast food chains and processed foods. I think the fact that this is so cute inhibits the social commentary a bit. That's just me, though. I do love your work, and this has my vote. Just not sure I could wear it. I hope I get a chance to decide this weekend!

Re: Lucky Park



I had to chime back in because I keep clicking on this just to look at it. Aside from the fact that I appreciate Maneki Neko, Daruma and Seven Lucky Gods (and have a number of them at home), I also am just nuts over the look and feel. I could walk into my local Asian market and see similar art on a box of candy or noodles. It's vibrant and awesome!

It's supposed to be on black. I see what you're saying - it may be 'overspray' from the illumination around the owls. I don't think the mock-up is actually blue.
BTW, gorgeous, Naolito! Just beautifully drawn and lit.

Re: The Library of Appalachia



I really enjoyed my last visit to the Library of Appalachia. Beautiful scenery. However, the live banjo "ambiance" muzak was a little distracting. Fortunately, the book only had pictures in it, so my visit was not unpleasant if somewhat brief.
