Shirt.Woot’s Falltoberfest derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Falltoberfest derby features fall leaves in great abundance, with a smattering of Oktoberfest beer and other imagery. So if you like the warm reds, cozy oranges, and harvest golds of autumn, you’re sure to find a lot to like this week. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

One for the Road by nicebleed captures a gorgeous landscape within a mug of beer. I suspect it’d do better in voting without the van silhouette, however, since it mars the look with some unfortunate drunk driving connotations.

Winter is Coming by wirdou makes every decaying fall leaf a warning of worse weather to come. I love how grizzled this character looks, right down to the faded colors and holes.

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 Pair of Shirts derby voting highlights

Don’t worry, you’re not seeing double- Shirt.Woot‘s Pair of Shirts derby challenged artists to create designs that work best as a set. Techniques varied wildly, as did the inspiration, and most artwork would also work reasonably well when worn solo. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Blondes and Brunettes by BooA is a simple, elegant piece that would wear well.

Half of True Love by kg07 is perfectly timed for Halloween, and I like that the half-heart shapes manage to feel natural (almost like the character is peeking out from around the shirt’s seam) even when seen individually.

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 Visual Idioms derby voting highlights

Quirky but common phrases got a new look in Shirt.Woot‘s Visual Idioms derby. With so many phrases to choose from, there’s a ton of variety to choose from in the entries, varying from sophisticated illustrations to silly cartoons. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Curiosity Killed the Cat? by nicebleed impresses with a realistic illustration style that adds extra shock to the curious kitty’s predicament.

Break a Leg by imisko caught my eye with its fun, bright color palette, using neon orange to tell a cautionary tale of a 4 leaf clover who pressed his luck too far.

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 Derby #724: Pair of Shirts

Seeing double? Don’t worry, that’s just the new Shirt.Woot derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #724: Pair of Shirts

This week is brought to you by the fabulous, the wonderful, the great @speedcheetah! He will be our guest editor for this week’s Pairs derby!!

To comply this week you must have at least 2 entries, that go together. It would be ideal if each shirt can be worn alone, but the pair if selected will be printed and for sale side by side.

These pairs can be designed for parents and kids to wear, or couples, or friends or families! They can be things that could be worn as a costume, or just a funny pair of folks out and about on the town in their shirts.

No politics.
No cats.
And I probably don’t need to say it again, but just in case we have some noobs…no cream shirts.

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

Shirt.Woot‘s Rules derby was all about the laws, both real and imagined, and unspoken as well as official, that guide our lives. As you’d expect given the theme, slogans and other designs leaning heavily on text were especially popular. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Hops Matter by BooA keeps things simple with a one color piece no beer enthusiast could resist.

Mogwai Care Instructions by Spiritgreen turns anyone who wears it into a gremlin, and does it by introducing some great instructional icons.

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.
