Shirt.Woot’s Literary Greats derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot buried its nose in a book for the Literary Greats derby, which had artists both paying tribute to genre classics and celebrating the medium of books in general. Readers will find lots to like, both artistic and slogan, but here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

This Book is Lit by Wheels03 brings back font memories of personal pan pizzas as prizes for reading, and the lit/literature joke adds some humor to the nostalgia.

Better Late Than Never by jasneko puts a fun spin on Wonderland’s rabbit, and the art conveys a franticness that sells his nervous energy.

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 #682: GraTEEtude

Thanksgiving inspired Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #682: GraTEEtude

Gratitude may be evergreen, but we think November is a GREAT time to be GRATEFUL! Designs for next week’s GraTEEtude derby should demonstrate or celebrate gratitude in all it’s forms. You can even show us what you are grateful for. But here’s the deal. This is NOT a Thanksgiving derby. Been there, done that. This is about GRATITUDE, not a turkey-filled holiday. Thanksgiving designs will be rejected and sent to the back of the fridge with the leftovers. Also, no Grateful Dead and no cream shirts.

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 Road Trip derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Road Trip derby is packed with slogans and artwork about travel, especially involving cars but also including both imaginary and historical jaunts using a variety of vehicles. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Road Trip Therapy by eduely is arranged with an appealing flow and playful lettering, with just enough road detail in the background to set the scene.

Warmer Climate by Randyotter puts together a lot of great moments of penguins interacting with each other and enjoying the ride. My favorite is the fellow who falls off the back of the bus… or maybe the suspicious closed-eye penguin above who may have pushed him!

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 #681: LiteraShirts

Artists might want to hit up the library to prep for Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #681: LiteraShirts

November is National Literacy Month and this week’s derby is all about illustrating literary greats! Draw your favorite literary works, but remember that if your art is not parody it must reference works already in the public domain. Show off your smarts and reading skills and encourage others to soak in writings of excellent form, imaginative artistry or expression of ideas! Text is allowed, but just like Derby #679, we don’t need books published on shirts! Just a few guidelines for this one; No Mo Poe, and no cream shirts.

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 Hand Lettering & Typography derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot gave wordsmiths a leg up with their Hand Lettering & Typography derby, which showcased both clever slogans and beautiful type treatments. Filling familiar silhouettes with quotes and other text was an especially popular approach. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Good Old Days by mekazoo hits just the right playful note with its golden, sunset color palette and letters that seem to dance before your eyes.

Late From the Future by shadyjibes reframes procrastination as an effective time user’s holiday, and makes the slogan even more dramatic with some subtle gradients.

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’s Sportz Nutz derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot artists had a ball with the Sportz Nutz derby theme, and while many designs play to the nerdy sensibilities of the Woot audience with anti-sports concepts, there are also plenty of tees for fans of the beauty and competitive nature of athletics. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Bring Your Balls by parrotworks keeps things simple with a bold, catchy slogan, and the hint of a field beneath makes the lettering feel monolithic.

Lucha Cado by mekazoo creates a really fun character, and the contrast between the flamboyance and grit of the luchador with the mildness of the avocado makes for some solid humor.

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.
