Shirt.Woot’s Pop Culture Now derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot shook off all things nostalgic and stayed firmly rooted in the present with their Pop Culture: Now! derby. By restricting subject matter to just things from the past five years, the contest was able to keep its focus on just the most current of references. As you’d expect, Game of Thrones and superhero movies were especially popular, but there’s also some cool work that brings in other pop culture influences that have been less common. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Infinite Infinity by kaedex99 uses the look of the Infinity Glove to construct an infinity symbol, a combination that makes perfect sense and uses highlights and shadow to appear even more polished.

This Is Fine by BethsdaleArt is a very wearable design, instantly recognizable without infringing on the original comic.

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 #706: Shirts of Bad Advice

It’s probably best not to listen to the latest Shirt.Woot derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #706: Shirts of Bad Advice

Old wives tales, urban legends or supposed truths that are just bad! We are looking for bad advice you were given as a child or adult, now that you are enlightened and know the truth. OH! And one more thing…the most important thing…this week is TEXT ONLY! As previous text only contests, small embellishments that are incorporated into the text are allowed. Or small flourishes that embellish the design, but no extra graphics or pictorial references are allowed.

No box standard fonts are allowed either, we want hand lettering or computer manipulated beautiful typography! No politics or cream tees here either!

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).

Shirt.Woot took advantage of the arrival of spring weather with its Outdoor World derby. Artists celebrated the great outdoors in all its forms, from camping to nature to animals and even the drawbacks of being outside. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Serene by Wheels03 keeps things simple with a streetwear logo parody that feels as fresh and clean as a summer day.

Put a Bird on It by kg07 packs in all kinds of texture, reminiscent of soft flower petals and reflections of light on water.

Shirt.Woot’s Totally 90s, Dude derby voting highlights

Nostalgia was in full swing in Shirt.Woot‘s Totally 90s, Dude derby. From movies and TV to retro technology and other cultural touchstones, this week’s designs should instantly ring a bell with anyone who lived through the era. There are a lot of very printable pieces this week, but here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Wild and Strange by kellabell9 captures the Western feel and cozy charm of the 90s kids show Hey Dude.

Digitize Me, Fred! by tgentry impresses with some seriously tasty pixel art for a design that I think just might appeal even to folks who never saw Galaxy Quest.

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.

This week’s Shirt.Woot derby theme is a breath of fresh air…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #704: Outdoor World

Ahhh, the refreshing feel of the cool mountain breeze, the sea-salt air at the beach, or the humid mosquito filled dankness of the backyard you’ve been meaning to mow. We’re going camping, we are gardening, and we are getting allergies! Spring is a great time of year to start blowing off the cobwebs (or walking through them) and getting out to nature!

Whether you love the outdoors or hate it, submit your designs between April 18th and April 24th!

No cream tees!

This derby begins Thursday at noon and continues through next Thursday at noon.

Shirt.Woot’s Tsar Raws derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Tsar Raws derby was really all about Star Wars, and artists had fun playing with all aspects of the series’s lore from porgs to the battle between light and dark. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Breakfast Falcon by jrberger is a fun take on the unique shape of the Millennium Falcon, using smoothly vectored breakfast foods to create a soft and delicious-looking space ship.

Chewy and Friends by dinomike sure is cute, and I especially like Chewy’s slightly pained expression- you know he’s wishing he had a snack right about now!

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.
