Hey everybody, Sokowa over at shirt.woot had a shirt in derby #47 that placed 4th and unfortunately did not get printed :/ her design was awesome though and I'd absolutely love to see it on a shirt, as I'm sure others would! Anyway here's the link to the shirt in case you guys here at teefury want to check it out.... and maybe print it! ;D http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=17686

    I remember this shirt from the derby. I really wanted it to win. Far too few of my shirts feature lighthouse art.

    I'm not sure if she has a portfolio but I do know she has been printed at least once over at shirt.woot. http://shirt.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=2369628 That's the link, and I know if you have a account over there you can just send her a pm :) I've talked to her a couple times and I know she's had multiple entry designs in each of the last 4 or 5 derbys that I've seen =) Also she was interested in getting this shirt printed elsewhere when I talked to her although I don't think the 60 days has expired yet for her to get the rights back from woot. Anyway see if you can get in touch with her because she's had some fantastic designs!

    Yea I liked this one too. I don't like how people vote on woot most of the time. A lot of follow the leader voting and sometimes it just seems like popularity contest.

    yeah agreed. The voting system is really good in theory, it just doesn't always translate to the best shirts getting printed. I think this shirt is an example of that. There is no way that the rodent/mouse acorn house design should have won over this (and it showed in sales), but what can you do? You win some you lose some :) It would be awesome if it could get printed here though! Did you get in contact with her layne?

    I love the rodent house ... The light house is beautiful but asphalt is an ugly color for T's

    Layne, if you want to see all Sokowa's past Derby entries you can go to
    http://shirtderbystats.com/pstats.asp?owner=sokowa and flip through all the Derbies she has entered and see her different styles. She is quite talented and worthy of printing.

    cool! thanks for that snarky, I didn't know there was a site that did that. By the way her entries start at the Winter derby I believe.

    yeah, I'd definitely head over to Soko's shirtderbystats page, and from there contact her at woot. Sadly I don't think she has any official portfolio besides that.

    and hey, if lighthouse isn't useable yet, I'm sure you could chat about some other design.

    Hi guys. Had no clue this was going on :) Thank you all so much, this is awesome. Sadly, Adder is right, I don't have an official site . . .yet :) So the shirtstat page is it (I'll try to get something simple up soon).
    BTW for those that liked the lighthouse style, I also made this around the same time . . .

    Pretty much everything is available to be printed (i.e. it's just sitting in my harddrive). I think the lighthouse is mine again next week. If anyone is interested in any of these I'd be thrilled to have it printed and will do what I can to help.

    hi sokowa! glad to see you on here :) I'm definitely hoping for the lighthouse, and I've really liked most of your designs. The thing I especially like about this design that I'd like to see you try more is the concept. It's kinda that outdoorsy feel without being the standard tree/bird nature shirt like everybody else seems to do :D anyway I know you've got tons of ideas up there and I always like seeing them!

    I would love to see a few of your others printed as well, Sokowa. Bug is Beautiful comes to mind (since it was just up for voting again last week).

    Thanks! Who doesn't like cockroaches with tutu's? Well we still have two more "do over favorites" left this week at woot so we'll see if Bug is a winner. Though it scored very low in votes (not that it matters). I'm almost done with a simple website, after that I'll post and see if Layne takes a fancy to any of them :) Thanks to Gambit for lighting a fire under my tush to get something up and running. Over time the site will mature into something respectable.

    All right, step one complete (and a big step indeed)
    Polysoup is up. I have to thank my boyfriend for pounding out the javascteefurycopy in an evening. I look forward to polishing the title, text, etc as I have time.
    Next . . . get on the artist page here and start submitting.

    bahahaha you honestly have some of the funniest shirts! my favorites are going green (although the shirt being green as well might make it indistinguishable green ^_^), coming home (obviously), energy rush, and Armageddon! keep it up! =D

    I hope they don't... surely other sites (with swanker payouts even) might want a couple ;)

    Well, I submitted Coming Home to teefury now that the 60 days is up. Thanks again Gambit for giving me the motivation to get the site and this shirt back into circulation. (I just hope on the off chance it gets printed that it will meet your expectations o.O)
