Yeah I need to tidy it up a bit. I think in the longer areas I might need to use the nibble formatting to tidy it up ^^.

They can, but the design will be rejected and fail to print because they're pop culture. Unless Shigeru Miyamoto joins Shirt.Woot and submits them, and then I don't care about the rules, that needs to print immediately and in great quanity.

I think staggering them at half lines "so they kinda zigzag" should work fine. though avoid green colors because that'll make it look Matrix-y

Woot clearly wants original designs this time around. Relax and accept that. I think they (well tgentry) have done a good job of clarifying that point.

I hate to be the one to ask this, but what about internet things, like memes or images? I know these are often considered pop culture, but if they're not part of a recognized story or IP, are they fair game?

Thanks for clarification, and also, wooo Walmazan!!!

[Personal attack removed ~ mod]

This derby offers a lot of opportunity for artists to be creative and original. The designs have the potential to be pretty varied and captivating. I get that sometimes rules have to be clarified, but that's been done. Be original is hardly a difficult instruction to follow.

As long some element of wish-fulfillment comes across it seems hard to go off-topic on that theme. Granted, it's pretty wide open, but some derbies are.



It was confusing because, if you didn't want to see some element of the first two wishes or of finality in the design, why wasn't the theme just "Wishes" - which is what the theme became by default. It seems a little unfair to the folks who went the extra mile to come up with a concept that actually fit the "third" part of the theme.

I love the concept, the image of the Eye on a red Fry container is what I think of when I read it. Not sure you could work that into the design though.

I like where this is headed and bounty42 had awesome suggestions, but two things:

1. The colors seem a bit too washed out. I at first thought I had accidentally highlighted the image.

2. There's not two of any of the animals in the sandwich!

Funny. But, it reminds me of my dads friend. He used to pick up the roadkill on the way to work, throw it in his trunk, leave it in the car all day while he worked, then go home and throw it in the stew! Didn't matter how long it had been dead on the road, or how long it sat in his hot car, he ate it. YUCK!

first couple quick ideas


this would need more development and a tag line like "your mouth won't believe its eyes" or something


"home of the honest cup of coffee"





or something with java, as I am trying to think of an actual reference that would be accurate rather than just java gibberish. .

I'm gonna suggest you don't make designs referencing cannibalism your go to thing. Plus this is a much more obscure ref then the donner party that I doubt few would get. Just my two cents though.

So I'm guessing that a:

This wouldn't fly. I'm not an artist, so the face would be stylized.

That is the only true Starbuck.

I don't know.
