Shirt.Woot Derby #657: Suns & Buns & Backyard Funs

Shirt.Woot is getting ready for summer with their latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #657: Suns & Buns & Backyard Funs

Summertime brings all the fun to the yard. And our grill is better than yours. Our pool is better than yours. You heard me! Summer is almost here, so we’re keepin’ it local with next week’s derby about all the summery stuff you do at home. Like lazy lounging, pool playing, or backyard BBQing. No beach stuff, travel, or camping stuff. Those’ll come later. No cream tees.

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 CATastrophe derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot has always been a haven for fans of felines, so it should be no surprise that their CATastrophe derby boasts a wealth of entries, both funny and artistic, that most cat owners would wear proudly. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Cat Boost by jasneko is a great illustration, perfectly capturing the playful, confident look of cats at their best.

Will Wake For Food by dinomike is both highly relatable and beautifully drawn, with smart text choices and sophisticated style in how the curve of the tail mirrors the arch of the cat’s back.

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: Star Warps collection

Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: Star Warps plus sale celebrates all things Star Wars, so if you like space ships, the force, and strange aliens, look no further. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: I like the way Adopt for the Dark Side by Fablefire links cats with the Star Wars universe, in part because it’s fun to think of how they’d interact with all the series’ characters and creatures.

Nicest Surprise: DARE to be DARK by Mekazoo parodies the famous anti-drug shirt well, and I especially like the way it subtly includes letters in the dots to help clarify the slogan.

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

Shirt.Woot Derby #656: Snarkasm

Shirt.Woot aims to tickle your funny bone with their latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #656: Snarkasm

You know what we hardly ever see on the internet these days? Sarcasm and snark. It’s a real shame. Sincerely. That’s why we’re mashing ‘em both together and dedicating an entire derby to the topic. So sharpen your wits and prepare to be wry. Just keep it clean, civil, and politically neutral. Aim to be clever, not abrasive. And no cream tees.

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 Star Warps derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Star Warps derby gave fans the chance to design shirts about the Star Wars universe, with interesting results. A surprise for me was how many designs seemed to not be parody at all, instead giving artistic takes on characters and slogans. But if you’re like me and tend to prefer humor to pure fan service, there’s still a lot to enjoy (including most of the current fog). Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Your Tauntaun Has Died by thehookshot is a well-crafted parody of both Star Wars and Oregon Trail, capturing a moment in the films that feels about as risky and unpleasant as having to ford a river with your wagon.

BB-Q by patrickspens immediately won me over with how warm and fuzzy the art is, using thick, soft lines and a sunny color palette to create the image of a delicious meal with a friend on a hot summer day.

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: The Gr80s collection

Shirt.Woot indulged in some affection for the raddest decade with their Derby Editor’s Choice: The Gr80s plus sale. So if you like neon colors, geometric shapes, and awesome pop culture references, look no further! Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Catfall by Radicallizard perfectly parodies both the simple mechanics of retro games and the mercurial personalities of house cats.

Nicest Surprise: 80s Forever by Thehookshot first won me over in voting, and I’m glad to see this epic collection of 80s ephemera made it to print. Each object included is a blast from the past for people who remember the era.

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