I understand that, but I also think you've identified the reason Woot changed the structure of the derby.

I realize a lot of this artist's designs have printed. However, when I go back and look at the sales figures (first day, and overall) for his prints, the meta of reflexively voting for favorite artists, rather than judging designs on the merits of whether or not they would sell well to a wider public is, frankly, bad for business.

I had never noticed this until I was showing the derby to my wife one week, and she asked "why the heck was that one (not mentioning which one) a winner?" I explained the meta to her, but then went to the shirt.what page and sorted by final placing ("I wouldn't buy any of these," was her comment - and she's a professional graphic artist), and then to the Reckoning page a couple weeks later to see the final figures.

So, while I understand the sentiment of "I love [insert artist's name]'s designs, and will vote for every one of them, regardless of whether they look like kindergarten scrawls", I also wonder why it took Woot so long to change their voting model.

Some text is probably needed but I suggest just putting "stupid autocorrect". I don't think the joke needs to be spelled out quite this much.

I never asked for advice nor do I see anything in the pre-Derby that states to post artwork to get advice from others.

Considering the highest selling artist here, I think your argument is invalid.

Great characters, neat use of the 3 wish idea and awesome lion's mane. It probably didn't need the squiggles above their heads. +1

That's what I thought at first too. That or like.. blue and green lungs. Or some weird blue and green angel. Took me a second to figure out exactly what it was. I do like the design though, just seems like it's missing something.

The world on a string, sitting on a rainbow... and no one to hold your heart. A tad melancholy, but that wish does come up often...

I wasn't sure, but the feedback I got suggested it needed a fair amount... Thank you for commenting, and here's hoping for the best!

So am I!

I also love this design - as citizencoyote said, I actually laughed out loud when I pulled it up. I think it fits into the Derby theme perfectly, but moreover, the "three wishes" theme is obvious enough in the design that someone unfamiliar with the Derby theme will instantaneously understand the humor. And bonus points for an instantly readable design that doesn't reference pop culture!

And not on a woot template, I believe. Don't the templates have little woot tags now?

Re: The wish



I have learned to identify Walmazan's designs from the thumbnails by how much they look like the Newbury Comics logo

(no disrespect meant, just an observation.)

If I'm to keep buying shirts, I need MXS! Please add my size!

Re: Say your right words



I love this! I think your style is significantly different from Froud's to not be lawsuit-able but I'm no expert.

Unfortunately, this color, while excellent for the design, looks horrible on me so I won't be able to get one if it prints. Good luck!
