Shirt.Woot’s Editor’s Choice: Heroes and Villains

Shirt.Woot’s Editors Choice: Heroes and Villains plus sale featured heroic tees with a villainous twist, whether from a comic book superhero or something more mundane. But even if you’ve never cracked open a comic, there are heroes to fit every taste from teachers and artists to coffee. Here’s what caught my eye…

Best of the Bunch: No One Too Small by patrickspens features a robot saving the day, and I love the exaggerated length of his robo-legs and how well it emphasizes the vertical canvas of the shirt.

Nicest Surprise: Hero We Deserve by mekazoo won me over in voting with its battle against the dastardly Monday.

Shirt(s) I Am Most Biased About: My design Night Owl Reality champions staying up too late reading comics while Sarcasm Hero admits a weakness to certain types of humor.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) 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 Halloween derby voting highlights

October brings with it the start of the shirt world’s spookiest season, and Shirt.Woot is ready for it with their Halloween derby this week. An annual tradition, this contest always impresses with how many fresh takes on the holiday artists are able to create. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Haunted Pixels by jrberger gives horror icons an 8-bit makeover, like a video game full of only big boss villains.

Happy Jack’O by realmarc fills a classic pumpkin with all kinds of classic Halloween fare from scary monsters to candy, all stylized with a strong one color look.

Shirt.Woot’s Heroes & Villains derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Heroes derby began on Thursday, but gained an added complication to become the Heroes & Villains derby on Monday. The twist asked artists to alter their Heroes entry to show the influence of a villain (or something opposite), and while some artists were unable to adjust to the new rule, over half complied to create some really interesting pieces. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Everyday Hero? by burnpaperzach turns coffee into decaf, and I especially love the new deliciously evil posing of the arms.

Hero We Deserve by mekazoo gives its original coffee cup something to fight against, instantly making this design more memorable and appealing.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) 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.
