I agree with j5... Also, my reading comprehension of addenda to Derby rules is apparently quite limited.

Re: Dorothy's Witch Removal

Odysseyroc, I love this. There's a crispness to the typography that suggests advertising logos; it really works here.

Travis addressed this in the pre derby thread.

You can name it whatever you like, but as usual it's a good idea when referencing something that you include a mention of it in your title, the detail image, or in your comments so we know what we're looking at (unless it's a painfully obvious reference that is.)

Travis said in the pre-derby thread that as long as the title is in the comments or if the reference is painfully obvious it doesn't have to be in the title. I did use a Romeo and Juliet quote for the title!

Asphalt will be just as dark if not darker. The only other thing I can think is to punch up the brightness on your colors.

Re: To Grandmother's House We Go (Red Riding Hood)



Does this get bonus points for being a mashup of two unrelated pre-1920 classics?

Re: Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

You're completely right and I apologize; I'm sure I read that post, but I didn't internalize it. I was actually grateful for the original rule because I tend to miss references and I was looking forward to having them spelled out for me, so I remembered having that thought but forgot about the clarification!

Thanks for correcting me (and doing so quickly). I think I've edited my previous comments so that the only person confused will be me!

(Again, apologies!)

I know white is not a popular shirt color, but I think it would look awesome in a white shirt without the oval ;)

Part of what I love about this design is the background in the oval: is raven silhouetted against the moon? is the oval the view through binoculars? is the light source a city and there's commentary about urbanization, or could it be a spotlight outside a rural home, someone fearing a visit from the raven and standing watch? If the design were on white, the choices about the background would be more difficult, I think (how far to extend it?) and it would leave fewer questions for the viewer, IMHO.

Re: Dare to Dream

I absolutely adore this. Woot doesn't seem to like dogs as much as it likes cats, but I love the combination of adorable puppy with what is a profound observation on realities of life and how often we are dragged along by/with others' choices. If this were a poster, I would definitely put it up in my office!

Re: The Ugly Duckling (21st century version)

This is a great concept well executed... except that the implication is that the duckling *wants* to be a swan. It's the other way around. :-(

Admittedly, I'm not having a stellar day with the Derby rules but I believe royal blue and cranberry shirts aren't allowed this week because woot is running low on both.

In the pre derby thread we also discovered that the filter will change the name of this particular book to something silly anyway, so it doesn't really matter that the full title isn't correct ;)

Re: The Raven



Though I'm usually not a fan of such solidly defined frames for artwork on tees, it works here for me. It makes me think of an old, vintage cameo which fits the mood of this design.
