Shirt.Woot: Espionage derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Espionage derby was all about subterfuge and spying, so maybe it’s no surprise that some of the week’s best entries are hiding in plain sight. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Undercover Letter by Wheels03 is immediately attention-grabbing, transforming a letter’s redactions into the iconic visage of a stereotypical spy. Really smart way of making secret messages read as a visual.

Every Little Thing You Say by jasneko has a cheery, friendly style that belies its more sinister message, the perfect way to position this concept since those phones we can’t get enough of might be doing something pretty disturbing.

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.

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.

Shirt.Woot’s Blanksgiving derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot artists explored the many facets of Thanksgiving with the Blanksgiving derby, so while there’s a lot of food and turkeys in the mix you can also find meditations on thankfulness and seasonal silliness. Here are two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Fowl Player by ApeLad lets a turkey have the same fun as the rest of us, with a retro arcade cabinet just for him. I love the detail of the word “Basted” on the screen!

Venn Pie-Agram by graffd02 collects Thanksgiving’s three most classic pies and calculates the one thing they have in common- we all want more! The pecan pie is especially well-illustrated.

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.

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.

Shirt.Woot’s Yay, Books! derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot’s Yay, Books! derby offered artists the unique opportunity to create art that works well on both t-shirts and journals, which led to a variety of art styles and approaches. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Unknown Pleasures by thatquietgir1 is a smart repurposing of famous Joy Division imagery as a series of waves to hide Moby Dick.

Explore It All In Books by paxdomino is packed full of action, with dramatic angles that make reading seem every bit as exciting as real sea exploration.

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.
