Cue the smoky saxophones, clinking glasses, and violent retching: this week we're taking the Derby to the heart of the city under the neon lights. Show us a shirt design that captures the smell of wine and cheap perfume, the giddy anticipation of striding past the velvet rope, the desperation of closing time.

Designs must be on Black, Brown, Royal, or Navy shirts.

No pop-culture references.

No text.

Wow. That's a tough one. The "no text" is refreshing but the overall theme isn't really my idea of fun.

I'm interested to see how this goes...

Also, do the powers that be still reject references to alcohol in derby entries?

Well since they mentioned "wine" in the rules, I think that means alcohol is ok

My rule of thumb - would my kid get kicked out of school for wearing this? YMMV. That Adventure Time 4:20 clock had a lot of parents up in arms, but I thought it was fine.

I can't believe parents were up in arms over that shirt. No self respecting stoner would even think about wearing that shirt...just saying. I bet those same parents would allow their kid to wear a Michael Vick shirt. SMH

It's been acceptable before:

How Rainbows are Made

Yay for no pop-culture! Yes, I buy them from time to time, but they're the exception, not the rule.

Agreed. Not every shirt has to be kid friendly. Plenty of collage age and adults wear tee shrits too.

What if I just draw a horse walking in to a bar? The bartender's expression can be like "ugh not this again..."

Thanks! I hadn't thought about resubbing him, but he does look like he could use a disco ball.

I also vote for a resub... I like him as well.


Nothing follows.

You going to get the band back together for a reunion tour?

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

I haven't heard from ignorant today and I've been swamped at work... so I don't think we'll have anything this week... I'm also having trouble drawing on that intuos when there is a cintiq on the way.

I started drawing a weird idea in a 40s jazz club. Got this far before I ran out of steam.

I love the looks of trepidation on the band members' faces. Is that Charlie Parker's lesser known cousin, Bear? ;)

Nice updates. The bar in the background is throwing me, however. Seems a little close to the "action"

Most people like to be close to the bar when they're looking for action! (dodges rotten tomato)

I originally had nothing but the disco ball, and that was bland. I really need to start working on my backgrounds, I always struggle with them.

Did a quick draw up of an idea I had, the idea being "Dance like nobody's watching" (inspired by the gf's dance moves this weekend :P ). Question is, should I leave the eyes on the crowd, or are they a bit too creepy:

Hoorah for more than one round of rejectination!

So many of these look like epic band, bar, &/or pub crawl shirts; I would have voted for more of them if I didn't dread the inevitable, "So it's NOT a band shirt? Weird." My abundant social awkwardness needs no additional fodder. :-/
