Shirt.Woot’s Band Shirts derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot asked artists to meld music and their favorite sci-fi series in the Band Shirts derby. As you’d expect, juggernauts like Star Wars, Star Trek, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Firefly were especially popular for parodying (though a few brave souls tackled rarer references). Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

The Xenomorphs by artguyaaron makes his alien look as rough and tough as a punk rocker, which leaves his elongated head feeling a bit like an exaggerated mohawk.

Band Book – Nemo by paxdomino captures the ambiance of the murky ocean depths with some excellent shadows.

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.

It’s sweater weather with Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #735: Ugly Holiday Shirts

You know the drill…it’s UGLY HOLIDAY SWEATER time!!!

All designs should be in the style of a knitted sweater. Other than that not much is off limits (politics and cream shirts are ALWAYS a no – as much as a I want a political ugly sweater to taunt my family this Christmas).

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 Subversive Holidays derby voting highlights

Thanksgiving, Christmas and more were lampooned in Shirt.Woot‘s Subversive Holidays derby. This choice to focus on unusual or counterintuitive ways of celebrating (or not) led to some interesting takes on the upcoming holiday season that felt different to the holiday norm. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Santa’s Rage by Krobilad takes Santa into the realm of street art, and even provides an alternate theory on how he delivers gifts so quickly.

Oh Oh Oh by sixstyle channels holiday anxiety by literally flipping a traditional Christmas image on its head.

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 Wonderfully Weird derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Wonderfully Weird derby had artists thinking in all kinds of directions, from surrealism to abstract art and even off-the-wall pop culture concepts. If you like the unusual, you’re really going to want to peruse this group of entries because it’s a very different collection of entries than you’d see in a typical contest. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

One Strong Grip by SteveOramA82 finds absurdity in nature with this charming crustacean.

So Hungry by ndikol pokes fun at the playful chewing of predators (and small children) by showing a pair of lions chomping down on traditional kid’s toys.

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.
