LOLcats and doges are sure to be out in full force for Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #692: Re-MEME-ber That!

Memes. On shirts. It’s a thing.

Let’s do it! Let’s pick the best and most popular meme’s for this week’s derby, put them through the parody-humor-mashup machine and print them on tees! 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.

No cream shirts and no politics for this one!

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 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 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.

Shirt.Woot Derby #690: This or That

Comparisons are the focus of attention in Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #690: This or That

This week’s derby is looking at both sides of every story. We want to see opposites and differences and contrasts shown in your designs!

Since the world is not just black and white, an extra challenge this week is that you are limited to the following tee colors!

Black, White, Asphalt, Slate, Silver, Heather Grey & dark Heather .

Your designs can be as colorful as you’d like, the bases however are limited to shades of grey!

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 Color of the Year 2019 derby voting highlights

With the subject matter wide open and only a single color required, Shirt.Woot‘s Color of the Year 2019 derby was a bit of a creative free-for-all with artists taking the opportunity to create designs that ranged from the purely artistic to the humorous and even some pop culture references. Here’s a look at two current derby voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

D’oh Nut by jrberger cleverly uses a trio of donuts to create Homer Simpson’s face. It’s a great concept, and doesn’t even need the two white w’s that serve as Homer’s hair- the resemblance is clear enough already.

Shades of Bacon by mekazoo is a nice piece of pixel art, a style that doesn’t get nearly enough attention in the derby. The pixel style helps it to feel like this slice is actively sizzling. And who doesn’t love bacon?

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.

Time to refresh your memory on not-so-recent events, Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme is…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #689: Events From the Last 100 Years

We are looking back at major pop culture or historical events of the last 100 years for this week’s contest. You can depict or make fun of or celebrate any major event that you choose from 1919 to 2019! Let’s stay away from political events from the last decade though, just in case…as my Mother would say, “ Not enough time has passed ”. Other than that there are no limits! Well there is that no cream tees rule.

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).
