 But what does it mean? shoutOut 3 weeks, 5 days ago by DuncanBoxie in peeps

Ok so you design some awesome design and you are fully convinced you are going to walk away with first prize. The votes are there but you aren’t in the top 20….maybe the reason is you never fully explained the message of your shirt, perhaps your design was a little bit too abstract.
Look this kinda thing happens all the time and it will be a perpetual problem.
Just a word of advice, don’t make the design so obscure that everybody just has one look and raises a wth eyebrow in response and misses the point completely.
Also the artist has a comment box where he can let the voter know what he was trying to achieve.
use it guys and girls…or suffer the unknowing, which leads to low votes. :P

 Wartime Tshirt Design shoutOut 3 weeks, 6 days ago by DuncanBoxie in peeps 3 weeks, 5 days ago by DuncanBoxie

What Tshirt would you wear to war…ok exclusing cammo shirts everybody, lets not cheat.
I’m talking about a design that when the enemy sees you coming it freezes in terror and leaves a puddle of wee where they stand.
I can think of a few designs, like perhaps a picture of Bush with a thumbs up and an inserted caption (in the language of choice) telling them that we come in peace…thats scary.
Maybe a good ol’ Ronald Mc Donald pic…that still gives me nightmares…happy meals are the DEVIL.
Theres a classic tee that has an arrow pointing left or right and the words “I’m with stupid” underneath….that works sooo well.
Can you imagine the faces of the poor hapless 3rd worlds in a trench when they see that coming. I’d drop to my knees and start digging a hole to hide…not that you can hide from thermal scans but hey.
Maybe the best shirt u can wear is a photo realistc one of a terrible gun shot wound…when the enemy gets close u just try not to breathe…perhaps stick some fake flies to your mouth.
Freaking heck…war is ugly.

 What is Blogger Warz? shoutOut 3 weeks, 6 days ago by Eric in wordUp 3 weeks, 6 days ago by DuncanBoxie

Once a blogger is invited to enter Blogger Warz, the pace is faster than “The Apprentice”.

What is a blogger? It’s someone who writes as an unofficial journalist on the Internet about anything they’re interested in.

The blogger has the option of either designing their own Tshirt or working with a designer to come up with their entry.

And that’s it!

People vote on the 2 bloggers designs for a month, and the one with the most votes gets:

1. Fame, glory & recognition as their tshirt design is printed, and their user name is printed on the back of the Tshirt

2. Fame, glory & recognition for themselves (& their designer if they use one), as we’ll be profiling them, interviewing them, and making them EVEN more famous (coz all bloggers are already famous LOL)

3. We’ll delight in handing over a cheque for R2000 (around $250) to the charity of their choice

The next month the winner goes up against a new blogger!

But even if the blogger doesn’t win, they get featured on the springleap home page for a month!

The first Blogger Warz is being hotly contested between:

Dave Duarte (in the red corner wearing a GSB pin on his trunks)


Mike Stopforth (in the blue corner wearing a bandana from Vegas)

Dave worked with Ryno Van Niekerk & Mike with Mark Forrester to come up with their creations.

The winner of this first Blogger Warz is going up against the SEO Guru webaddict, Rafiq Dancing steps Phillips

May the best Blogger win!

PS: Have a blogger you think should be in Blogger Warz? Nominate a blogger?

 Theme competition shoutOut on 14/3/08 by DuncanBoxie in peeps

Theme competitions are very popular with artists and in recent years online compo’s have really jumped at the opportunity to get involved.
Of course Springleap will be looking at starting its own asap.
For those of you that don’t quite know what a theme competition is, its basically where we at Springleap will decide on a sentence or maybe even a word and then artists must produce a design around that concept.
For example:
“Castles in the sky”: I would design a palace floating on clouds or a funny spoof of somebody throwing beer bottles through the air….it can be anything at all.
“Jealousy”: I’d design a monster with green eyes stalking a hapless human through the city, or maybe even a little kid looking at an astronaut while hes left playing with his own toy rocket.
Anyway I hope that makes sense and that the idea interests you.
Maybe we should have a compo between all the Springleap members, where you can submit your own Theme and the winner gets to have his as the next topic of design.
So give it a thought and when we are ready to run with it you will be the first to know.


 chilibean interview via skype text shoutOut on 13/3/08 by Eric in paparazzi on 14/3/08 by DuncanBoxie

Paul Jacobson from the chilibean blog interviewed our very own springleap founder Eran Eyal in a very innovative way today.

They got onto skype and the questions were asked LIVE via typing. So Paul asked a question, and Eran answered it in the skype window.

Then Paul did a small amount of editing (but left the time of the questions and replies), and the interview was blogged.

Discussion topics included:

what is Springleap, where did the idea come from?

is this the good stuff?

how does the process work from the perspective of an artist?

Would the choice of software package to support limit artist involvement? Is the software readily available?

What an awesome way of interviewing someone!

To check out the incredible conversation Paul & Eran had on skype (which lasted over AN HOUR), check out the chilibean site at:

Skyrove have ALSO given us hotspot vouchers for all the runner up’s.

Thanks guys! We LOVE giving more prizes to the winners!!!
