It's done in the Art Nouveau style which is inspired by natural forms, especially in plant life.

Think Guimard's Metro entrances in Paris.

The derby was about internet through art history, so it looks to be a Firefox piece done in the Art Nouveau style.

Yeah, pretty much. Although, it might just be me, but I feel like the artist write up stuff hasn't been as lengthy or polished as it has in the past. Not trying to knock whoever is doing the writing, just that it seems a bit off lately/not quite as good as it could be.

Anywho, I never quite got the whole Internet Explorer vs. Firefox rivalry thing that goes on around the internet. Some one care to enlighten me? Or is this just one of those hipster memes?

Thanks Everyone, who responded. I don't always follow the derby week to week. It's a real pretty shirt anyways.

IE is notoriously awful. From a web design point of view, you always have to include ridiculous workarounds in your code to accommodate IE (at least older versions). It's known for rendering pages differently than most other browsers. Firefox came along with lots of sexy plugins and bells and whistles, and didn't break the internet, so people welcomed it.

Now, IE 9 is pretty slick if you ask me, and I find Firefox kind of clunky. I'm an Opera man myself.

Awwww heck. Y'all have seen Ramy's bios so much, you can probably write it yourself.

I sent in a note to the writer. It'll be tomorrow after they wake up though.

So what, is there nothing left to say about ramyb? Has he been all bio-ed out?

I dropped IE for Firefox loooooong time ago. Have since dropped Firefox for chrome. Sorry Firefox. Don't know what happened but you got clunky. Still, I love the foxy character. I'm really digging how ramyb made the tail look all glowy.

This is adorable. Throw it on a hoodie someday (a real hoodie please, not the lightweight ones) and I will be right there buying one.

How does Ramyb always win? Some of his(?) stuff is cute but frankly it all ends up looking the same.

I guess designing for the voters is key, not creating decent art...

Well, considering there are...7 different tabs on the Woot pages now, and with deals being updated daily for the most part (assuming no repeats if they offer the same product another day), can make for quite a busy day.

Not that I have any true inkling about the creative process, but some people can be instantaneous, others have to put forth effort.

Kinda like trying to do the Simpsons Whiteboard each day, though.

It's amazing how the use of whites can make a color look as if it's glowing. I wonder if it looks that good in print.

That's always fascinated me, too. From cartoons to art like this shirt, how the glow affect is achieved is just neat.

I remember when I left IE for FireFox. I feel bad because I'm a Chromepuff now, too, and I LOVE IT, but FireFox finally got people to think maybe they didn't HAVE to have IE, and also got IE to get its act together. It did a good thing.

Good design, ramyb.

Before I click on the shirt it looked like the fox was howling at the moon.

I found the write-up for this one to be uncharacteristically moving. It's not just based on a movie I haven't seen, is it?

Im getting this, because even tho I now use chrome, Firefox will always have a place in my heart. I hope someday it becomes awesome again!

Thanks Ramyb for the cool design. Btw to everyone else, Ramyb is a girl...

Did Ramyb also do the black phoenix design shirt? I loved that shirt, and I love this one too!

I think this is unfair. I mean the goal here is to make money by designing shirts that people want to buy. There is a lot of fun in the submissions, but the actual purpose is to win the derby so that you make some money.

How is it bad for ramyb to make things to that will accrue votes? It's not as if s/he is ignoring the derby guidelines to pander. I think that this particular item could not be more perfectly fitted to the derby it was submitted.

I know ramyb art when I see it b/c s/he has a style. How can you fault a graphic artist for having a style?

Criticizing for unoriginal ideas is one thing. It's been covered in the past with some merit, but this comment is just silliness.

It's very simple, to find success in the Derby, simply take whatever the theme, and put some cartoonish animal in it. The design often doesn't even need to reference the theme if the animal is adorable enough,and voila! Instant top 3 finish.

It's like watching that Portlandia sketch "put a bird on it!". Just replace "bird" with "cartoony animal".

IN general, making something people will by is perferable when attempting to sell something.
