man, your right. i was so confident in my memory of such a huge part of my past, and i screwed it up! well, shush, but i didn't sub my color breakdown yet, and it will be fixed in that (assuming this gets anywhere near the fog). lets all just go into the dyslexic mode that my brain runs on, and it'll look fine

btw thanks for pointing that out. maybe ill resub it if im motivated enough tonight...

Re: 1979 - President Attacked by Rabbit!



I always thought it had to be a beaver, or perhaps a nutria, which are both aquatic rodents who would have been curious about the canoe. He probably just saw the teeth and leaped (hah!) to the conclusion that it was a rabbit. Regardless, i doubt it really attacked him, but he probably was startled.

daedalusknight wrote:It would get rid of the votes so far, yes. But people can always re-vote and you often get more votes if you resubmit a better quality shirt. There was a shirt called Pockets of Spring that went through like... what... four resubmits... five? It still made it to the fog and got printed. And the spring robot survived a resubmit too. You've only got twelve votes right now and it's still Friday. I'm sure you can get at least that many votes and more by making the crest stand out more with a lighter color. Up to you, though.


I really do appreciate the input, i really do. I looked back and did the suggestions you said, and indeed the fluff does show up better, but once i compared them side by side... the way it is now to me looks a lot better, it has a subtleness to it. Thank you for the input its really appreciated, and Ill keep this in mind for the future as well, but i think im going to stick with this.

Re: 1982: Thriller



I know no one would ever resub a fogged entry, but I wish this had only one row of MJ. It's a great concept and a cool implementation, it just feels like too much of a good thing.

However, since it looks like I'm in the minority, ignore me. ;)

Re: 1985 - Buckminsterfullerene (super geek version)



1985 is the year fullerenes, which are special allotropes of carbon, were discovered. Fullerenes come in a few different forms, but probably the most interesting one is buckminsterfullerene (they're more commonly known as "buckyballs"), which is named after R. Buckminster Fuller. He was a pretty cool guy. Buckminsterfullerene is made of 60 carbon atoms arranged in an icosahedral form (like a soccer ball), and my illustration details the organic structure including the aromatic rings. Yes, I'm a geek.

This version has an adjusted fullerene graphic and includes a mass spectrum of the molecule for all of you geeks out there.

Edit:
Wow! I never expected this shirt to rank so high! I guess there are more geeks out there than I thought. I sincerely doubt this will wind up in the fog (and that's okay, I'm more than tickled about the positive response this design has gotten - thank you everyone!!) but I promise...I'll try to design more "geeky" shirts for future derbies.

Re: 1970, Spoon Fork =



I love this shirt because the spork is my all time favorite utensil. I wish the spork would get the credit it deserves, but it usually just flies under the radar. I would wear this shirt proudly as a declaration of my love for this perfect invention. The only regret I would have about voting for this would be that I wouldn't be able to vote for it again, and again. My computer doesn't even recognize greatness when it's right in it's face. It keeps changing 'spork' to 'spock', as if a Vulcan could even compare to this wonderful eating device.

Re: 1970: Jackson 5 Make TV Debut



I'm not crazy about those colors or the grungy look. I think it's the brown figures that are bothering me... If you change those colors and make it cleaner, I think it'd be great!

I see no similarity beyond the fact that both have leaves. 'Grow' is a wonderfully simple design. This is a wonderfully detailed design.

I dunno, I think this is made for a big freakin' print... too small and it just would look silly, big and it's bold enough to carry the shirt. Though art, man, woot is NOT gonna be happy if you make them continue to stock orange

Re: 1985 - Welcome the king of Puzzle Games



In June of 1985, Alexey Pajitnov originally designed and programmed Tetris while working for the Dorodnicyn Computing Centre of the Academy of Science of the USSR in Moscow.

Tetris is undoubtedly the most popular puzzle game of all time, and one of the most famous games period.

Yay Tetris! I like the 3d effect. Kind of wish it were more 3d-ish, but it's still really cool.
