Shirt.Woot’s Public Domain Day derby voting highlights

Harkening back to 1923, Shirt.Woot‘s Public Domain Day derby asked artists to create works inspired by materials made that year that were now entering into the public domain. Since most people today are only familiar with a few properties from that era, it’s perhaps not surprising that the number of entries was a bit sparse compared to the normal amount, and clustered around a few prime references. Still, though, there were gems to be found, so here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I think could use some more attention…

The Lurking Fear by benjaminleebates feels appropriately creepy with its glowing color palette and heavy detail that pulls you in to find even more scary moments.

Chaplin by stiluk35 captures the playful spirit Charlie Chaplin channels in so many of his movies, and the splatter element hints at his slapstick stunts.

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.
