Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: GONE collection

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: GONE plus sale contains artists’ tributes to all kinds of things that are no more, from departed pop culture characters and shows to memorials of eaten food and even to things that are just plain missing. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: I’m Empty Inside by Patrickspens is a smart take on ghosts, just in time for Halloween.

Nicest Surprise: Gone Upside Down by oneshoeoff is a catchy Stranger Things parody, and has been a favorite of mine since voting.

Shirts I Am Most Biased About: My design Caffeine Not Found imagines lack of coffee as a computer error message, while A Missing Link puts the Zelda hero on the side of a milk carton.

This promotion will only last until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. So if there’s something you like, grab it fast!

Shirt.Woot: Athletic MoTEEvation derby voting highlights

Exercise and other forms of physical exertion grabbed the spotlight in Shirt.Woot‘s sporty Athletic MoTEEvation derby. But of course, there’s also a fair bit of parody and tributes to laziness in the mix, so even those who avoid the gym should be able to find something to enjoy. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Exercise Rocks by ApeLad is a brilliant gag, poking fun at how super-buff comic characters made of stone must have gotten that way.

Work! by helgram immediately caught my eye with the freshness of its color palette, and each character (especially the bossy coach masquerading as an exclamation mark) was a delight to discover.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.

Shirt.Woot: GONE! derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme was GONE!, which inspired a lot of different responses from Woot’s artists. Many focused on death or pop culture characters gone too soon, while others paid tribute to phenomena like eclipses, wordplay, or even good ol’ nostalgia. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Catch Me If You Can by krisren28 combines Waldo with the Monopoly guy, and in doing so turns the incognito explorer into some kind of intrepid back robber- maybe he’s been hiding his secret thieving all along!

Gone Upside Down by oneshoeoff is another Waldo parody, but takes things in a totally different pop cultural direction by giving a Stranger Things character the Waldo logo treatment. It works because the two characters do look a bit alike, and because the shock of placing Will literally upside down sparks a lot of interest and humor.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Fall is for Shirts collection

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Fall is for Shirts plus sale has dropped, and it’s packed with colorful tributes to the season. With autumn leaves, forest animals and clever slogans all part of the fun, there’s definitely a lot to like in this group. But here’s a quick look at the designs I really fell for…

Best of the Bunch: Fox Falling by Pixelpants is a seriously well-done design, with both a massively appealing concept and an impeccably illustrated execution.

Nicest Surprise: Fall in the Forest by Yazmoq has been a favorite of mine since I saw it in voting, using a bright forest scene to fill a deer’s familiar silhouette.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design Autumn Leaf on the Wind imagines a fall leaf that just happens to be a Firefly fan.

This promotion will only last until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday. So if there’s something you like, grab it fast!
