Shirt.Woot: Artificially Intelligence derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s robot-themed Artificially Intelligence derby had artists tackling all types of computer-y and technological subjects, both harkening back to pop culture and entirely new and original creations. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

ELIZA’s bar – where everybody knows your $name by Zenne imagines the similarities between a friendly bar and a well-trained chatbot. Take away the grey outline and this is a really fun, wearable design!

Tin Brains by mikiekwoods points out that the Tin Man had a lot of advantages even before he hit the Emerald City. Loving the cute style he’s been drawn in, especially the quirky nose!

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: FestiviTEEs derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s FestiviTEEs derby followed right after July 4th, which might explain the somewhat lower number of entries this week. But while the entries may be fewer in number, there’s no lack of quality and the theme allowed for a good amount of variety in imagery. Here’s a look at two current underdogs that caught my eye…

Florin Fair by benjaminleebates packs some subtle Princess Bride references into a design that would feel right at home at a renaissance faire.

1987 Video Gaming Convention by ApeLad absolutely nails that retro style in color palette, text choices, and especially the details.

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 #612: Artificially Intelligence

The machines are preparing for takeover in Shirt.Woot‘s latest derby theme…

Starting Thursday at noon: Derby #612: Artificially Intelligence

I don’t know who decided that artificial intelligence was better than the real stuff, but that’s where things are headed. Apparently. So even though “real” intelligence is earned through hard work, sweat, tears, thinking…and also genetics, next week’s derby is all about the artificial kind. You know, robots and computers and junk. Welcome, Dave.

Also, stick to themeses that are relevant to the current artificial intelligence conversation.

Fun fact: cats will never be artificially intelligent so leave them behind.

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: Summer Campinating derby voting highlights

Summer is the season for fun in the outdoors, and Shirt.Woot celebrates a classic vacation favorite with their Summer Campinating derby. From pop culture summer camps to wilderness scenes and “in tents” puns, there’s something for every kind of camper. Here’s a quick look at a couple of underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

Say No to Organized Activities by CrumblinCookie should capture the heart of any Addams Family fan, and the sentiment is very relatable.

Individually Wrapped Camper Snacks by ApeLad imagines bears are just as frustrated by over-packaged food as the rest of us, only their munchie of choice is sleeping bag wrapped campers. The bear’s face communicates his annoyance so clearly!

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.
