Derby Preview #733: Subversive Holidays

So no … elves … storming into an ethics investigation on … Santa … while disregarding all security aspects?


I don’t see that as political. :hushed:

Right… And no Elves trying to overthrow the current Santa because they think that the Bumble would make a better Santa than a Comedian that used to sell tools… Wait… What? Where was I going with this?


A bigger issue with even allowing any hints of politics is that it’ll be a very short lived design. As ridiculous awkward as marker gate was and more recently, apparently Colorado needs a wall because I suppose New Mexico isn’t a part of the US anymore, the finite life span based on current events won’t really sell a month from now.

(Just IMHO …)

yeS. Cats. Subversive… always.

Merry Catmas!

I’m assuming you meant October 31st. :slight_smile:

As a matter of fact I did…thanks for the spot.

Yes, always a battle between selling timeless designs (or at least less timely) versus selling timely things because you know the customer wants it.

I think the bigger story here is that we are learning that all States (or maybe just some) are shape-shifters that can move closer to whatever disaster/crisis it would be beneficial in that moment for them to be a part of. Everything’s a conspiracy.

This Derby was made for me!


Same. Humbug. :joy:


Greetings @Lady5tark (or others) I’m working on an idea for this but can’t get the psd templates to work on Inkscape on my Mac. I tried adding .psd functionality using the solution offered at PSD Import - Inkscape Extension , but no dice. When i click on the Illustrator forms link, it takes to a page where nothing happens. Any idea how to get the templates to work on Inkscape?

Hey mydearWootson, Inkscape is only really used for vector files (and .psd is not a vector format). If you are looking for some open source free software to open the .psd template files, then download GIMP . It should handle them fine. Good luck!

D’oh! Thanks for the info. I’ll try Gimp…hope it’s easier to pick up then Inkscape for a noob. (Though I’m now adept at arching text in Inkscape…so I’ve got that going for me, which is nice).

Ok folks, I couldn’t get GIMP to download on my late 2012 mac mini…so I pieced together a design with xpaint and Inkscape. I even managed to get it in png format AND put one on a template. The problem is, I’ve no idea how to do anything more than black on white. Anyone willing to help a Wootsen out with getting some color? (It’s a monochromatic design)

I also forgot to say NO UGLY SWEATER DESIGNS. Save those for this one.

Was anyone planning to sub an ugly sweater design??

Some food for thought…

Since it’s such late notice - I won’t reject…but I will ask you to sub in the ugly sweaters derby if you would like to…

Clearly I have no artistic ability…see this abomination.

However, I’VE GOT IDEAS THAT THE WORLD DESERVES TO SEE! Who am I to let my lack of ability deprive Wooters of sweet tee’s?

Picture this —a close up of a dark and gritty Santa face who, instead of a beard, has an Antifa style mask (lower face cover, I’m thinking subzero/scorpion style) - or even a mask which is made to look like a Santa beard? [I’ll wait while your mind reassembles from being blown]

Who’s wants to make it happen!?

They do editor’s choice on Monday right? Pretty sure the poultrytariat will make the cut!

P.S. anyone seen @Narfcake? Seems like it’s been a minute…
