Shirt.Woot Derby #745: This Versus That

Familiar franchises prepare for battle in Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Monday at 8pm CST: Derby #745: This Versus That

This weeks theme is dueling pop-culture franchises. The artwork should be in the style of a sports event shirt, advertising the two competing teams and must include the event name/title. For example, “The Mando Showdown”, or “The Future Bowl”. You can’t use those 2. The teams or competitors are IMAGINED and from your favorite pop culture franchises. They can be from the same franchise or different universes – that’s up to you, but they must be pop culture references.

No politics, no real team names or teams that exist in movies. No cream shirts.

This derby begins Monday at 8pm CST and continues through the following Monday at 8pm. Three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will be printed as daily offers on Tuesday through Thursday and earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales. Other designs may be selected for a Plus sale, with each selected design earning $2 per item sold.

Shirt.Woot’s Retro Future derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot looked to the future through the eyes of the past with the Retro Future derby theme. Artists happily obliged, creating steampunk takes on pop culture, shining illustrative utopias, and dark dystopias warning of dangerous technology to come. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Cosmo by kharmazero is a smooth, modern take on an astronaut shown in profile, made more futuristic with geometric shapes cutting through the piece.

The Gunshow by benjaminleebates has a delicious color palette, very reminiscent of bright colors painted on clay pots. I love the way the robots pose with their long, metallic limbs snaking through the image.

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 Editor’s Picks: Workout Schmerkout collection

Shirt.Woot asked artists to be exercise-averse with their Editor’s Picks: Workout Schmerkout plus sale, leading to the creation of designs that glorified laziness, extolled the virtues of alternate forms of athletics, or even told stories about what sucks about working out. Whether you exercise or not, there’s bound to be something in the mix you’ll relate to. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Avocardio by walmazan first won me over in voting with the way it turns an avocado pit into a pudgy belly.

Nicest Surprise: Avoid Sports by MEKAZOO was another voting favorite for its sophisticated retro style.

Shirts I Am Most Biased About: My design Reading is Exercise wants to train your brain, while Good For the Hearts wishes real life worked more like Zelda.

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

Shirt.Woot Derby #744: Retro Future

Get nostalgic for what’s to come in Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Monday at 8pm CST: Derby #744: Retro Future

The theme this week is retrofuturism. Your design must depict a retro idea of what the future would look like. Put yourself in the past and think about the future.

No real politics, but fictional politics are allowed. No cream shirts. As always, trademarked franchises or brands must be parodied or done in your own fan art style. No logos, no copyrighted material, yada, yada, you know the drill. No names of real people, no realistic depictions of real people. Any questions?

This derby begins Monday at 8pm CST and continues through the following Monday at 8pm. Three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will be printed as daily offers on Tuesday through Thursday and earn $1000 and $2 per item sold after the first day of sales. Other designs may be selected for a Plus sale, with each selected design earning $2 per item sold.

Shirt.Woot’s Three Marker Challenge derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Three Marker Challenge derby asked artists to use color palettes randomly generated online. This both worked as a way of getting people to do things outside their comfort zones, and also left the subject matter wide open and to be inspired by the random color selections. This meant a lot of Baby Yoda in various shades of green, but also artistic illustrations and slogans in a wide variety of styles. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Octodoodle by artguyaaron has a lovely art nouveau feel in its tangle of tentacles, and I love the off-center placement.

#1 Nap Taker by burnapaperzach tilts the #1 hand to the side, which both emphasizes the tee’s sleepy theme and helps the art to sit more nicely on the shirt.

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 Editor’s Picks: Textography collection

Artists exercised some creative wordplay in the Shirt.Woot Editor’s Picks: Textography plus sale. The collection’s emphasis on hand-drawn letters resulted in some very unique pieces, and more than a few pop-y phrases that will impress Star Wars fans. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Tea Makes It Better by jasneko was a voting favorite for the pure warmth and coziness its lettering communicates.

Nicest Surprise: Very Good! by sebasebi, another design I liked in voting, impresses with the enthusiasm and quirkiness of its color palette.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design Slow Down stars a friendly sloth.
