It is meticulously separated from the background of some of his other sketches and just repeated, basically. No font or anything, just careful separation of the writing from the distressed and shaded paper, copy, paste, etc. I don't speak a bit of Italian, much less backwards shorthand Italian, so it probably says some awful things.
Glad we could get at least 2 good da vinci designs in here, even if neither will make it to print.

"Going Bananas" is still my favourite, but I wouldn't have bought it if it had placed. I think I would have gotten this one though. It really is an impressive shirt.
Thank you very much. It makes me very happy to have a comment like this, especially with all the great entries (not talking about the top entries, necessarily, but there is definitely quality in the ranks). Thanks again.
I do want to say, for the record, that this is ultimately a rehashing of Leonardo's own artwork and writing, and not necessarily my own, so I do not deserve much of the credit. But I still appreciate all the kind words. In this particular instance, I would be happy to donate any winnings to a museum or other charity because I do feel this way.
