The high seas were teeming with cool art in Shirt.Woot‘s Pirate derby. This week the site had a voting promotion that helped voters secure a sizable discount on winning shirts when they go up for sale, which may have given a voting advantage to early entries. Perhaps because of this, even more than in past weeks there are a lot of seriously solid designs that failed to get far off the starting block and acquire votes this week. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…
Captain Sun and Moon by jimmytan gives celestial bodies a charming pirate makeover, and I especially love the sun’s little mustache.
Animal Pirate Ship by jasneko populates a ship with a collection of cute critters who could be right off the pages of a great children’s book.
This derby continues through Monday at 8pm. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs may be selected for future plus sales and sold for $2 per item each.
