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

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Blanksgiving plus sale asked artists the question of what the holiday means to them, and while the result is heavy on turkeys and food (as befits the holiday), there’s also enough variety to keep most potential customers interested. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Venn Pie-agram by Graffd02 was a favorite of mine in voting, and is an extremely accurate depiction of pies you are going to eat.

Nicest Surprise: Fowl Player by Apelad was another voting favorite, but now that it’s being printed it has been giving a very successful and colorful new look.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design Sportsgiving uses a turkey’s trademark feathers to link the holiday to football.

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

Shirt.Woot: Espionage derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Espionage derby was all about subterfuge and spying, so maybe it’s no surprise that some of the week’s best entries are hiding in plain sight. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Undercover Letter by Wheels03 is immediately attention-grabbing, transforming a letter’s redactions into the iconic visage of a stereotypical spy. Really smart way of making secret messages read as a visual.

Every Little Thing You Say by jasneko has a cheery, friendly style that belies its more sinister message, the perfect way to position this concept since those phones we can’t get enough of might be doing something pretty disturbing.

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 keeps the conceptual possibilities wide open with their latest derby theme…

Cranberry sauce is great and all, but you know what else is great? Cranberry tees. Next week’s derby is exclusively Cranberry tees. The only rule is that your design must be on Cranberry! This means not only no Cream tees, but no… any other colors. Oh, and no Thanksgiving-themed tees. Ha!

This derby begins Thursday at noon and continues through next Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales. Those winners will be sold on Friday (1st), Saturday (2nd), and Sunday (3rd). Additionally, other designs may be selected for a Plus sale on the following Monday, with each selected design earning $2 per item sold.

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Yay, Books! collection

Libraries and literature provided rich inspiration for Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Yay, Books! plus sale. Readers will probably enjoy paging through the whole collection, but here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: A Sucker for Words by Helgram gives a spectacled octopus the chance to do some light reading, creating some beautiful curves and textures with those tentacles.

Nicest Surprise: Unknown Pleasures by thatquietgir1 was a favorite of mine in voting, and I think its whale hunting adventure will look great on the printed shirt.

Shirts I Am Most Biased About: My design The Write Stuff reimagines NASA for authors, while Choose Knowledge valorizes books as a weapon.

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

Shirt.Woot’s Blanksgiving derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot artists explored the many facets of Thanksgiving with the Blanksgiving derby, so while there’s a lot of food and turkeys in the mix you can also find meditations on thankfulness and seasonal silliness. Here are two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Fowl Player by ApeLad lets a turkey have the same fun as the rest of us, with a retro arcade cabinet just for him. I love the detail of the word “Basted” on the screen!

Venn Pie-Agram by graffd02 collects Thanksgiving’s three most classic pies and calculates the one thing they have in common- we all want more! The pecan pie is especially well-illustrated.

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.

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #629: Espionage

Pssst. Hey you. Yeah you. You didn’t hear this from me, but next week’s derby is all about Espionage. No cats, no Spy vs. Spy and no cream tees. And maybe let’s not all design Bond shirts? This message will self-destruct in 5…4…3…2…1… KABLOOEY!?

This derby begins Thursday at noon and continues through next Thursday at noon. The top three vote-getters will each earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales. Those winners will be sold on Friday (1st), Saturday (2nd), and Sunday (3rd).
