Shirt.Woot’s Superhero Parody derby voting highlights

Artwork and punchlines were straight out of comic books, blockbuster movies, and the imagination in Shirt.Woot‘s Superhero Parody derby. While many designers made a heroic effort this week, here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

It’s Not a Bird, It’s a Salsa by walmazan turns Superman’s logo into crispy tortilla chip dunked in an “S” of spicy dip.

Stand for What You Believe by TaylorRoss1 unites its doodled heroes in colorful stripes and uses text to urge the viewer to undertake everyday acts of heroism.

This derby continues through Monday at 8pm. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs may be selected for future plus sales and sold for $2 per item each.

Shirt.Woot’s STEM derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s STEM derby asked artists to explore the rich inspiration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. And I’d call it a very successful theme, because there’s a nice variety of pieces in the mix drawing from pop culture, a variety of art styles, and even some designs with a slogan or message. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Question Everything by marchi does a great job of forming its slogan out of letter-shaped graphs and objects (although the T could stand to be more distinctive).

It’s Owl Around Us by LPyne is so thick with detail that it should delight viewers with all kinds of moments of discovery.

This derby continues through Monday at 8pm. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs may be selected for future plus sales and sold for $2 per item each.

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Wonders of the World plus sale celebrated all types of wonders, from the historical to the imagined and the pop cultural. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Wonder of Greasy by Walmazan should instantly ring a bell for Fortnite fans, and hits just the right silly tone.

Nicest Surprise: To Call the Gods by Sebasebi first caught my eye in voting, and its unique surreal take on an ancient monument should look excellent in print.

Monsieur Poulet’s Life on Mars

Life on Mars by Ludwick shows the fun, footloose side of outer space. While a lot of sci-fi shirts are about precision of line and exotic landscapes, I like that this goes in a totally different direction. By sticking with a more doodled look, there’s a quickness to the art and a fluidness to the creatures- you could imagine these aliens oozing instead of walking, just a huge mass of liquidy drips that act as tentacles. And while many shirts use a black fabric to communicate the darkness of space, the artist finds a novel solution to that problem by using a heavy black ink background for its lettering. That choice means the design still feels firmly in space, but the art gets to live on a lively green canvas. Another aspect I appreciate is the way that although the title is Life on Mars, what we actually see isn’t life on another planet, it’s aliens flying their craft among many different planets. I like the idea that even on Mars, exploring aliens can’t wait to see what else is out there in the universe.

Winners at Monsieur Poulet earn 2 Euros per item sold, for a total of up to 2000 Euros.
