Derby #374: Famous Quotations

No Dr. Who? Who else is there to quote? :slight_smile:

Quote a cat.

Really rough sketch, but I work til 10pm tonight and will only have time to draw after that. The quote wouldn’t be on the shirt, it’s just the quote I was thinking of. Thoughts?

Okay - that’s not showing up. Anywho, it’s the quote by Edison “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” The front is a bulb labelled #10,001, and a pile of broken bulbs in the background.

I think it’s a good idea, but not sure how well it will work on a tee shirt…something else is needed to tie the design to the quote, I think.

"So, other than that, how did you enjoy the play, Mrs. Lincoln?”

“I can see through time” is likely my MOST UTTERED phrase- :slight_smile:

Here’s a design in progress… which idea works better? Or another suggestion? Thanks!:slight_smile:


i like the one with the tree better.

alternate suggestion: put the tree at the edge of a cliff top and the apples at the bottom.

btw, imma not seeing some of the woot-rehosted pics; i hadda “reply” to the post and “go to” the original image url to see it. in the ones i can’t see, the woot-rehosted-pic-url ain’t showing up, instead there’s an error message.

dunno if the issue is on my end or on woot’s.

edit: would be funny (to me anyway) if is blocking its own automation from seeing pics hosted on certain sites (e.g., imgur,

edit 2: NOW i see one. never mind.

Does “Quotes from books must be in the public domain” apply if you if you are only using the quote for inspiration and not actually including it in the design?

The one with the tree is cute, but I don’t know what famous quotation you’re referencing.

That’s the way it sounds to me. I think they’re trying to make sure they don’t get sued for people having Harry Potter or Hunger Games references.

I believe it would be
“The apple don’t fall far from the tree”

I’m assuming we have to keep these PG?

I want to do John Waters’ quote about books.

Unforch, we probably will nix things very clearly about sex. PG is a good guideline, I think.

Took me a moment to get the quote, but it’s a cute design. Prefer the one with the tree more, but I really like no1’s idea even more than that. Might be something worth toying around with.
