I originally had it in rows but it felt too blocky... I'll keep playing with it.

Hmm... not sure about this one for the ladies. My first thought was--why would I want to wear an xray of breast implants? Then I saw the comment about the robot.

Have to love a Prestige shirt. Never see that.

I'd advice against using proper nouns. Names of movies, names of fictional places, names of characters... these things tend to get rejected.

Hey everyone,
So I'm having a bit of a conundrum. I designed a shirt that is shockingly similar to one that was just submitted. I really don't want to scrap it excuse I worked on it for quite some time and since I work, I sadly can't post mine until later tonight. At the same time I don't want to step on anyone's toes. What should I do?

I'll be happy if we get one good Dr. Horrible reference.

So long as it's not on a black shirt; sick of black.

I misjudged. It looks like BTTF is the theme of the month.

Also, apparently this derby theme is < blahblahblah> sciencish types of things.

Ping the other artist saying "hey, GMTA" then post it with your above explation.

Random question - Are you allowed to have the design up for sale on Redbubble or another site WHILE it's in the voting process for the derby?

To all the people who were wondering, I use Photoshop... and I usually don't make typos or spelling errors, but thanks for the concern. ;)

These were previously completed designs I thought fit the theme, and I've never entered the Derby before, so cut me a break. K?

Nope. You are, however, able to delete it from the running within 24 hours if you don't like your chances of victory. Which gets you off the hook for the 60 day hold...

So how many Shröedinger's cat references can we forcibly cram into one derby?


More importantly, how many of them result in a humorous and wearable shirt?

Also, can you get a Shröedinger's cat into a Delorian? Maybe as a Shröedinger's flux catpacitor?

The thing that disappoints me the most is there are some shirts that are so poorly designed (some serious lack of contrast) and they're getting upvotes like crazy because they jam some science into a pop culture reference.


First and last derby participation for me? It's possible. I'm that whiny.

Someone please explain to me how the one that says "Mad Science" is getting around the rejectionator? The rules for the week say "no text only designs" and that's all I'm seeing on the shirt. Is it just me?

The text itself is stylized and contains graphic elements (the lightning), so it is not text only

Thanks, TJ. It's borderline, I admit, but the rule refers to slogan shirts with no other design work than font choice.

no its FANCY text!!! B^\

still just text but then again its no worse than the other designs in this derby, at least its a lil more original than all the pop designs B^(

kinda sad that this site is starting to be like the bird shirt site... way to much mash up pop culture B^(

might as well call your self Ramby 2.0 for skirting the rules B^P

no offense to you but really it is just a text tee and it really should be pulled... and for that matter i think the big bang tee should bee pulled as well, just having an atom in the background, really?? nearly all the entries this week are Generation 3 Ponies and unimaginative. not everything has to do with doctor horrible or big bang theory or anything pop culture! its actually better to not do pop culture! Be original!!!

I don't understand why it is acceptable to just put up any drawing and just add "SCIENCE!" on it.
Like that Eye of Sauron design that just mentions Tesla. It even had a translation from Elvish, as if that made it make sense. Yet somehow it got 100+ votes?
People don't seem to care if it matches the theme at all.

Yea, I'm trying to make sense of the dynamic over here too. Seems everybody generally has different taste than I do, which I'm taking into account (e.g. the winner is too cutesy for me, but props to pspens for a winning design that fits the theme and is very well done).


There does seem to be a noticeable hivemind. It's way worse than the one over at deals.woot because we're talking about shirts actually going to market here. I guess I'll never be able to tell how many of these votes are popularity contest, but I suspect quite a few are artist-votes rather than art-votes.
