N is for Necromancer!

I actually have numerous ideas for this derby, none of which sadly involve Nocturnal Naught Ninja Nyan Cats.

Maybe I'll be able to do one or two of them tonight.

Is that a question or a design idea? ;)

And with the amount of time I have to actually work on a design, it's ambitious enough to have any hope of getting one ready by Friday at launch.

Wait a minute... when they say start with N does that mean we must only use nouns and not adjectives?

For example can we use "Narcissism"?

no doubt.
Here is an example form the "A" derby that just used "atomic."

Nein. Not noon.

From previous derbies, it has to be really obvious that the design is about something starting with N. A naughty ninja is on theme, a naughty pirate less so.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Thinking about past letter derbies, if it's very obvious what it is, you can. (And make sure to include a little prompt/explanation in your first post, just in case!)

... but there are no penguins in the arctic...

Anyway, Nox and I ARE working on a narwhal design. I studied to be a marine mammalogist - any excuse for marine life is good for me! We're putting a holiday spin on it too! BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! or something...

Is realism in our t-shirt designs too much to ask for?!?!

Oh. It is? Oh okay. Nevermind.

Haha, right! Thing is, these poor artists get lambasted all the time for things like that.

are "penguins in the arctic" really that much less realistic than anthropomorphic animals (or food, for that matter)?

just what is cookie monster's species, anyway?

I guess that depends on who you ask. I wonder if the people who get pedantic about "unrealistic" shirts are the same ones voting for anthropomorphic animals/food/inanimate objects. Hopefully not, but stranger things have happened!

Looks like I can finally make that SISTER ACT shirt I've been saving for just the right derby!

Is this garish and ugly? I kind of got trapped in the concept. It's Noble Neon at Night.



I could change the colors, but I'd lose the neon realism...
