This is such a unique design, great graphics and effects! which software do you use?

As far as the character goes, its not taking directly from the cover art. Its a redrawn interpretation. Kinda hard to parody a ball with arms much more than that. I avoided the hitchhiker thumb because its definitely copywritten.

Oh well, we will see what happens.



Redrawn interpretations require interpretation. Best of luck in your future submissions.

Re: Rule 42



Yes, sorry to poke holes in your first design but there's also the problem that very similar shirts exist. (it's always important to google an idea before you draw it).

The first sub is always the hardest though. Welcome to the derby. :^)

for what its worth, I'll just say I'm a huge H2G2 fan. I researched the artwork, and as best I can tell there is no existing copyright on the character. It was created as part of the box art for Infocom back in 1984. The company went defunct in 1989. Activision desolved the infocom brand in 2002. the rights to the hitchhiker's guide for a game were transferred back to Adams. After his passing, the estate allowed the BBC to make a java version of the game on their website for the 20th and subsequently 25th anniversarys.

Aside from that trail, there is no definitive copyright or copyright holder. At best, the box art is part of the game copyright with the estate of Adams.

My representation is different than the box art. If memory serves, there are only 2 official variations of this character, 1 covering his "eyes" on the front of the box, and 1 of him revealing no eyes on the back, but with different facial gesture and hand placement.

I just hope Woot agrees. Personally I think Mr. Adams would have found this satire 'properly appropriate in being inappropriate'. Just sayin! I'm just glad people like my first submission!

And to Spiritgreen's point about googling the shirt first.. I probably should have. But after googling it I will say, (A) at least 1 other major online retailer has a riff on the topic, and (B) their shirt looks much more like another submission and not mine.

Either way, I have my fingers crossed. I don't expect this to make it past the weekend, but here's to hoping right?

SpiritGreen - I guess that means I don't get your vote for 3rd place? lol.

Thanks! I know it still needs something - This is only my third submission, so I appreciate any feedback!

Did you know that woot sells kid's shirts? They normally reject shirts that are for "mature audiences only", so this may not last.

This needs to be on a shirt template or it will be rejected.

Will buy this shirt if it prints. With all the tea I drink every day (at least a quart) I have too. Plus I love the Beatles. Beatles and tea-how can you not love this shirt? Love the color too.

I have one shirt on the way and another just ordered. Woot is turning into an addiction.

I'd say it's more of a doctor who parody. very possibly treading that fine line between acceptance and rejection. I hope not, I think it's funny.
