Re: On The Inside


This design is cute and love the colors - my two favs - lavender and gray. Only thing I'm worried is this will get rejected because of the text...since the rules say no text Hope the designer sees this and resubs before its too late. Would love to buy this one!

Re: Ghost in the Machine



Inside every machine is the ghost of nature we had endeavored to emulate. I'm not really sure how the previous sentence holds up for those most useless machines floating around, but uhh... tree.

Also: I realize I have hijacked the title for my own purposes. Gilbert Ryle and all the other dead philosophers can have it back after I am done. Promise.

Re: Loyal Friend



Loyalty - the willingness to make a personal sacrifice to strengthen a relationship.

I consider myself a Loyal Friend. So, if any of my buddies turns into a zombie, they can count on me to "help" them!

The rules states "No text only designs", which means text is allowed, but there should be some graphical element as well.

This design is allowed.

Went a little looser with this one. Even the smallest of creatures (and people!) are capable of big, big love, caring, sacrifice and selflessness! Er, I hope. Six colors on brown.

While the general idea is cute this is certainly not one of your best designs.

Re: Loyal Friend



This might be a silly question, but does double tap refer to shotguns? And I guess my follow up question would be are those shotgun shells?

I love this. If I could find stuff like this inside rocks I'd be cracking them open ALL day long.

Re: Love Is Blind



Personality and inner beauty are more important than exterior looks, especially if those looks turn people into stone.

"Double Tap" is the second rule to survive the zombie apocalypse as stated in the movie Zombieland. It basically means that you should always shot a zombie a second time (in the head), to make sure it is really dead.

And yes, those are shotgun shells.

Please, please, please let this print. It's lovely, it's on theme, and it's not another black shirt. The more I look, the more I like it.

Re: Little Hero, Big Heart



It seems the topic "inner beauty" is lost with most people nowadays. I really like how you can incorporate beauty with a subject that most people would detest. A nice person or a kind action is what makes a person beautiful. True beauty should come from a person's morals, not from a person's looks. What we perceive to be beautiful nowadays are sadly, mostly on the surface; whereas we should look at the "inside" of a person to determine true beauty.

There are some pretty good entries in this derby, but there are a lot that are way too sappy for my liking.

I like this one but I didn't realize the Medusa reference right away. I wonder if a waiter turned to stone in the background might contribute to the overall theme. I like the style!

Re: Humble Pie



I love simple designs but I also love them when they are expressed without text. What if the pie were on a 1st place podium followed by piece of cake in 2nd and 3rd place going to...?

Re: Loyal Friend



I just don't think it works. There needs to be some kind of actual zombie reference here or people are going to just think it's referring to homicide, or assassins, or drug dealers. "Sure I'm willing to kill all my friends for some vague unspecified reason that you can make up yourself!"

I get that you were inspired by Zombieland or whatever, but that line isn't from that movie, and Zombieland certainly isn't what most people think of with the term 'double tap'. It's military lingo for 2 quick shots to the target on as close to the same spot as possible. Furthermore you don't double tap with a shotgun anyway, so your shotgun shells don't make much sense with the slogan.

"You can't just dress a Minion like Spock, and add a caption that says "Logical Me". There's a prison for people like that. Below my house."
