This is splendid. I love LOVE it! Consider me in for 2 at the least! Well done!

I agree, this is awesome on so many levels. GMV and I'm in for 2 when it prints!

For the moment, this is my favorite the colors are great, the textures are fantastic. As Radscoolian said, there's so much here to learn :D

This is great :D The textures are so well done, and it looks so great on the green tee. Maybe Ramyb's Lucky at Last is too recent. I wonder what would happen if both are for sale at the same time!

Re: Can-Can



I think it's meant to be his take on Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's can-can girls:

http://frenchalacarteblog.wordpress.com/tag/henri-de-toulouse-lautrec/

Which, to my knowledge, is Art Nouveau. He was listed on the list that Woot gave, at least. Maybe I'm wrong-- this style of art isn't my thing and I doubt I'll grab anything this derby. The style may not be blatant Art Nouveau, but the subject and inspiration seem to be, especially considering the ones he posted over on facebook.

I initially voted for the cupcake on yellow there (bottom left on facebook), but after doing a little digging, I think the top left would've been a little more obviously in line with the theme, as the border makes this a much clearer tie to the "Jane Avril" piece.

That being said, I do generally agree with this:

I think the point of this derby (and many other woot derbies) is to get artists out of their comfort zone to draw something difficult or different



However, IMHO, voters should also be encouraged to verse themselves in the subject as well before denouncing entries with "this isn't art nouveau". It's happened on other entries, too.

Trade with me on TeeTrade!
THINK OF THE PATHOGENS!!!

I haven't had a problem yet so I'll keep on doing it. I know people use it as wallpaper sometimes so it's nice to offer it for every design.

Thanks guys!

I will be very disappointed if I don't get to wear this, like, yesterday.

Thanks SG! It's the first time I've ever tried to work in the "art noveau" style. It was fun. :^)

Other birds. Maybe they tried to get to the birdbath ahead of cute little chirpy there.

Thanks. I'm a big fan of yours too. The teal light spots really help make it pop.

Thanks cephy for being a long time supporter. I really want to see some of your work in the derbies soon.

Re: Night Nouveau



It reminds me a little too much of shirts that you'd buy in a gift shop in Florida... I think the Art Nouveau elements could be played up more.

Thanks Caladria. The little wife and I are planning to "install" a dogwood into the back yard this year because we were so impressed with that part of the Arboretum. And there are many stories and meanings behind the dogwood.

Thanks so much. So.... did you head over to the reckoning and buy something? Just curious since you mentioned in the last derby that you couldn't vote yet.

Re: Cat Nouveau



Beautiful black cat. Excellent execution of the art nouveau style. I hope this one makes the top 3 because I really want to own it (a rare thing for cat designs).

Re: Art Nouveau Rising Sun



I think I'd have trouble wearing this because the placement puts it in prime territory for my boobs to nom the image, but it's very pretty work.

Well done!

Thank you! This was the third shirt I did for this derby, and the one I'm happiest with. If it doesn't make it to the top (which seems probable), I might just print this one myself.

This design is really pretty. I'm not sure about the shirt color, but I like it anyway!

Fantastic. I will be sending out an email to several people I know just for them to register and vote. Parrot enthusiasts and bird owners would LOVE this. I really like the whole thing.

Re: Cat Nouveau
