I know their not affilliated with woot but it has been a source for many artists and voters here at woot. So anybody know what the deal may be?



well I guess that was corrected by them. I wonder how long that was like that?

Oh wow, I didn't even notice the duck and beaver until I read the thread. They blend into the design awesomely.

Do you have an actual POINT to make? Or are you just trying to be funny?

Re: Laugh, Kookaburra, Laugh



Love this! Who cares if it's vaguely similar to another shirt. It's a laughing kookaburra in a tree with gum. It's clever and fantastic.

The turtle carries the world in so many cultures. The arms/legs wrapping over and around, that almost seem to make a face, as well; the frog as a symbol on its own plus looks like the nose...
Like I said, I could be imagining it but, I think this goes farther to touch on the heart of aboriginal art than most other similar subs.



Thank you so very much. When the derby came up I imediately thought of the Aborigonal art
style, and I was really hoping that my design would be meaningful to people. I am still fairly new to woot and I really enjoy getting a chance to branch out with my art work.

Thank you, I was trying to stay fairly true to original source for this. I am kind of wishing I had zoomed in a little more on the Aboriginal so that more detail would show. It actually has a rather nice, rough finish to it.

Re: Rainbow Serpent



If everyone who voted for this shirt would also vote for its brown sibling, maybe we could get this design to print!

Thank you so much for submitting this design on a brown shirt template. I love the colors and the dot-design and the distressing.

Re: The outback



After I made the point that part of Australia is missing yesterday I showed this design to a few people I work with (as I'm not Australian, I just live here) to see what they thought.

They all loved the design but were laughing that it was wrong. ...and not one of them is even Tasmanian.

Re: The Strength of Many



After coming back and looking at the design it's too big on the shirt, and the proportions might be off a bit.

Hmm...

Oh well fight on my shirt!

You'll find that most Australian folk songs are about criminals and sheep-shearing.

I think you and smklung may be onto something here. Seems a little taunting... I guess you can call it a day. Plus, imagine how much this little guy would tickle.

Clever and unusual take on the theme. And joemail11's post confirms that sheep and shearing are a part of Aussie lore. Works for me! +1

Spotted the duck right off, but almost missed the beaver. Should have been obvious once I'd seen the duck - doh! Well played!

No one has a copyright on the concept of gum-chewing birds. At least this one resembles a kookaburra, and not a chickadee.
I like - soft and subtle.

This needs to print, for shirt reasons, for aboriginal reasons, for environmental reasons... A well-reasoned shirt!
