It's usually called a Trinity knot, which symbolizes the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Others view it as the three planes of existence-mind, body, spirit. It is also known as the Lover's or Eternity knot since it shows two continuous loops intertwined as if in marriage, two unbroken circles bound in eternity. It just depends on how you want to view it, I guess.

The same thing could be said for recreating a flying penguin design... ironically MWM8180 was the designer of "Penguins Last Dream" that placed 5th in derby #27, which was the root of much controvesry in this derby...
Although James Cho's design received much praise & many initial votes for a 3-D rendering in this derby... it could be viewed as pandering to the voters for a quick win instead of showcasing James' artistic talent & original vision from what I've seen of his work.
Anyway, just countering an attack on a design(er) that the voters seem to like for whatever reason... maybe they like it due to that similarity... not really intending to open fresh wounds.

Overall, I'm a bit disappointed with the way the votes fly on this site. But that's the way it goes. I just don't vote for or buy them. But I rarely criticize designs in the fog that I don't like or in which I cannot see artistic merit according to my personal standards. I just praise the ones I like, that's just me though.
Personally, I'd like to see all vote totals hidden for all designs and the Hotness and Fog removed. To me, it's the only way to get unbiased votes and truly let the designs speak for themselves.

To me, the Cho situation is the reason something like Grow is so dangerous, lunar. It's not even arguable at this point that designers are consistently giving us work that is below them, because when they give us their quality, they get beaten by, well... you see the gap. If shirts like Grow continue to win, the designers will start taking the hint, and either leave, or give us their own Grows. That's why this shirt is such a slippery slope, and why many of us who truly like shirts dislike it.

Yep. And if it weren't for that cat messing around with the 6th dimension like that, we'd have a unified theory of everything by now, or so was the train of thought. It was a concept shirt up against some really great artwork this week, not ever destined for greatness, but in there for fun. Hope you liked it!

Why is it that people who have a good sense of artistry and are artists themselves are all of a sudden "abusive" and "low class" when they are honestly critical of something? I just don't get it. I've not said much of anything about this one...but geekfactor, adder, and others are incredibly well versed in the art of shirt making (gf runs a blog that covers all tshirt sites) and as such their opinion is a valuable one. Her assessment that this particular design fails in it's attempt at evoking profundity with simplicity is just an honest opinion. nothing more, nothing less. Why does one negative comment generate so much hate here? why are people so sensitive to anything aside from "AWESOME! GMV!"

Frankly, it's almost like the derbies are part of the Truman Show, and anyone who doesn't smile and wave to every passerby is an evil classless interloper who must be removed lest he/she upset anyone. People have opinions, good and bad, and I see no reason why one should be banned from expression when it's done so reasonably. And every critique of this design has been fair and reasonable - whether you agree with it or not. The fact that anyone who expresses an opinion that so many of you don't agree with usually meets with various personal jabs and calls for censoring said opinions is really quite sad and a little frightening. Is the real world free of criticism? Have we gotten so soft that everyone has to like something or shut up? I certainly hope not....because it will be very sad, boring, and milquetoast world if we ever get there.

so the barcode on a shirt isn't new, but I would say that this is more barcode inspired, not just a barcode.

This makes me lawl, considering you just called me bitter for saying I wouldn't buy any of the derby shirts because they don't strike me as wearable designs.

...but yeah, I have no idea why people like to jump all over other people's cases for posting an honest opinion. ;)

I still don't see this as being any worse than a coupons, starbucks, or IT shirt.

Milquetoast may be a song, but before that is was part of an expression from the first half of the 20th century "Caspar Milquetoast". A Caspar Milquetoast was a guy with no backbone, who could easily be cowed. If you think of a piece of bread soaked in milk - he had that sort of soggy resolve.

Therefore a milquetoast world would be a rather bland place indeed.

Oh, Geekfactor runs a site about other tshirts sites? He must be a world expert on creating tshirts! His opinion is so valuable. How many shirts have you, adder, and all the others that are always dumping on shirts and being abusive to designers actually had printed that makes your opinion so valuable? Bro, I hate this design, I just like how much you think it's an offense to art and good taste. Thanks for policing the forums for us to protect us from this kind of stuff.
