Summer lovin' and we're having a blast! Summer's the perfect time to hit the beach. We hear. It's not so great in Seattle, to be honest, although the locals rip their clothes off and go running for the water as soon as the temperature hits 72 because that's about as good as it's gonna get. Anyway, this week we want to see your beachiest designs! Show us breaking waves, bikinis, picnic baskets, sunblock, and shark attacks! Maybe not the last one.

Great! we just got back from the beach... Duck, NC, to be precise. Looking forward to the derby and getting some designs in.

And they stick it in the Derby area now.
And nobody cares anymore.
And we all die at the end of the year, anyway!

Because having the derby thread in the derby section doesn't make any sense...

Untrue. For some people the derby is one of the best parts of woot. I always love to see what the artists come up with. Plus it's great to see the discussions that take place once a design is shared.

And pigs fly.

I didn't say it didn't belong. It's just a change from expectations.

Compared to prior years, participation in the pre-derby thread is way way lower.

Let me check my Mayan artifacts, I think they had flying pigs too.

I know the thread's in a different spot, but the change actually makes sense. "Where'd the derby thread go? Oh, maybe it's in the derby section. Duh."

Compared to prior years, participation in the pre-derby thread is way way lower.


Well I don't have years of experience with woot, so I'll just go with you on that one. However, it seems from the discussions I've read, that theme has a bit of an influence on how many comments there are. Also how many sketches/ideas are posted pre-derby for feedback. I don't always offer my two cents, but there have been times when artists acknowledged and listened to my comments and that was pretty cool.

Remember, if "Made in..." is stamped on the bottom it's probably not a good source to check.

I couldn't find it. I even checked teh Derby Section and it wasn't there. I checked the Blog and nothing. I think there's been some interesting server issues of late.

I'm staying away from the pop culture this week. Attempting to capture part of the beach experience that I really enjoy. I'll do my best to get a comp posted later for feedback. Come on artists, we can revive the pre-derby thread.

Undoubtedly there are some server errors... I can't send in a daily entry or a derby entry from any of my computers that are running win XP without getting server errors. So I need to send everything from my daughter's laptop.

Nox and I are working on one or two ideas. The first is kinda of a vintagey beach shirt using a song (polka dot bikini anyone) as the base inspiration. She may take a pop culture swing (it would be a first for us), but we'll see.



And I just realized, she has a very large rumpus LMAO. ANYWAY.

Me too... I read that book in high school. But it would make a pretty depressing t-shirt, so I'm definitely not doing the book reference.

Ukulele is Hawaiian for "jumping flea". Are there enough ukulele nuts like me to care about this?

Also, I'm not quite sure how to make a dog look like the beach.

That is definitely an interesting take on the theme! As for a dog looking like the beach...all I can think of is using a dog that has blonde hair. Google image search puppies. Even if you don't find something you still get to see lots of puppy pics and really, how is that a bad thing? ;)

I'm a sucker for vintage/historical references and takes on things so I love the idea. As for the dimensions, well, um, you might want to try alternate versions. ;)

As a player of the ukulele, I approve [tenors for me, I have big fat fingers ] and would love for it to wind up on royal blue [please NO baby blue!]...
