Memes. On shirts. It’s a thing.

That’s right folks we’re looking at the best the internet has graced us with for inspiration this week. To be clear, you must draw inspiration from memes, we will not print the actual meme on shirts. We are looking for parody, mash-ups or other references to these most cherished humorous works that have spread through the world wide webs.

Shirt.Woot looked at the strange and newsworthy events of the last century in their Derby Editor’s Choice: The Last 100 Years plus sale. Space and technology were especially popular themes, but here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Going Wireless by patrickspens shows wireless as the ghost of an ethernet cord, which is a hilarious and very apt image.

Nicest Surprise: Nuke It! by chachachino first impressed me in voting with its smart reimagining of the Book It logo.

Shirt I Am Most Biased About: My design 1976: Fruit Company Founded is for retro Apple fans.

Shirt.Woot’s This or That derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot designs had opposites in common in the This or That! derby. Animals and pop culture were especially frequent subject matter, but both humorous and artistic pieces were both well-represented. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Day and Night Catnip by ChrisBurns709 has a great retro look, and that pop of red for the eyes is very effective.

Fried Buddies by speedcheetah is a hilarious visual gag, and the textured shadow adds some interesting grounding to the scene.

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 Derby #691: Love and Loneliness

Shirt.Woot begins their preparations for Valentines Day early with a new derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #691: Love and Loneliness

“Blah, blah, blah….yada, yada….Something beautiful about love, something beautiful about loneliness.” – Me.

Quite the poet I am. Love AND loneliness and love OR loneliness, that is the topic for this week’s derby. Show us either or both emotions in a design for your chance to be voted on by the adoring or reproachable public! Draw us something beautiful to wear in the season of love that reveals your inner cynic or penchant for a good love story! Just a few limitations…no cream tees! Also, designs cannot contain dates or any references to Valentine’s Day.

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: 2019 Pantone Celebration collection

The color coral united the designs of Shirt.Woot’s Derby Editor’s Choice: 2019 Pantone Celebration plus sale. Some artists took the opportunity to create designs about pink things, like bacon, crustaceans or frosting, while others used the inspiration to design with a limited color palette that let the pinks sing, regardless of what color they’d have been in nature. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: Chocolate Is Magic by ApeLad is brilliant in how it uses coral to highlight the chocolate brown of the shirt peeking through.

Nicest Surprise: Shades of Bacon by mekazoo was a favorite of mine in voting for its excellent pixel art.

Shirt(s) I Am Most Biased About: My design Baking is a Piece of Cake celebrates creating delicious treats, while Just Call It Ham shines a light on an insidious Canadian plot.

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 Events from the Last 100 Years derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot artists tackled memorable moments from the not-so-distant past in the Events from the Last 100 Years 1919-2019 derby. Space, cats, and all things computer-y were especially popular subject matter. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Interweb by mekazoo really nails that retro style, right down to the shine of the text.

Nuke It! by chachachino repurposes the Book It logo to valorize the microwave, reminding me of microwaving snacks after school.

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.
