Guessing they thought it was too good and off, because it's been Fogged for at least 1, if not both, previous rejectionator passes.

Yeah, I was wondering that too. It made it through multiple rejectionator passes so I thought I was safe. I guess not though. It must have just taken them a while to deliberate. I'm still hoping I have a chance of being picked by Drakxxx or the Woot staff though! *fingers crossed*

Hmmm...I guess if I think about it it, I suppose it might be taken as racist. It wasn't intended at all. But I guess it'll get rejected because of this...*headbang*...haha oh well...live and learn...Thanks for your comment!

I think you could get this same concept across with different imagery, like maybe an item expressing a word that means one thing here, but something totally different in another country. Idk...just a thought!



Thanks for your insight. The process takes a long time for me to draw something good, and I can't think of anything like what you said, so I guess I have learned my lesson.

I have nothing against any race. I didn't realize that this could be a bit insensitive. Apologies. I guess it'll be rejected anyway...

I recall someone saying that rejections of fogged entries take a committee to decide? Maybe legal folks? Legal folks are slow to decide, in my experience.

move along

I mean it seems silly to me. They've got a shirt featuring what is clearly the cookie monster that they've sold tons of shirts of, and this comes a long and is too close to copyright infringement?

Did they try and contact The Jim Henson Company to see if it would be alright? A simple e-mail? I don't think dear Jim would be all that upset about this if he were still alive... Then again I'm sure there's a board of directors that may just think differently...

Wow. How did you turn a watercolor into six colors? Did you use the posterize adjustment in photoshop?
I am interested to learn.

The problem isn't that it's recognizable. The difference between this shirt and The Binge is that The Binge is clearly parody, and this isn't. So even though most of the goblins are truffle's, the reference is obvious and without parody, that makes it too risky for woot to run.

I think the delay may have been caused by the need for everybody to finish crying about not being able to print this before they were able to hit the button. Short of getting Froud himself to do it, I can't imagine anyone better than truffle to do this shirt, and I for one would dearly love to own it.

I thought the Count also...clearly Mumford doesn't get enough attention.

That is a good suggestion! But even if I did have time to change it, I wonder if it would still be considered racism...but thanks for your suggestion. I might use it in the future.

The border could use some work, but that's one of the hardest things for me to figure out. It's a great illustration though.



Agreed and only when I read the comment underneath yours I can see where I could have gone with the border >_<

Thanks! After reading your comment I think I know where I could have gone differently for the border/shape. Sometimes drawing late at night to try and submit a derby before Friday can hurt the drawing a bit haha

This looks like part of a design submitted a few derbies back...(Comfort food?) Or maybe I've just seen too many bunnies and carrots, and ponies and cats (at least here haven't been anymore nyan cats)in my short time here.
