Why is the astronaut holding a flag of Saturn? Since when has there been life on there?

Why is he from Saturn? Are you making some sort of conspiracy statement, tgentry?

Congrats TGentry.

I dunno how many people actually own lemon shirts but they are so bright they practically glow. Given the subject matter the shirt should look super awesome.

There are other ringed planets you know.

I'm more curious how the astronaut got that close to the sun without burning to ash. Must be those new super durable futuristic space suits.

Hopefully no one kills him because he's a big reason to keep coming back.

And why do people keep asking questions that I've already had answered? The Saturnites an insatiable desire to lay claim to the Sun.

edit: Had to fix the wording. Didn't want to misrepresent Travis' astronaut.

You two do realize that Saturn is not the only planet that has rings right? Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune all have rings as well.

Another nice spaceman design from tgentry. Bold use of yellow, I might add, which is nice and summery. Great job!

Though I hope he's wearing asbestos tidy-whiteys...

I'm a bit puzzled on how the flag is on fire. If the fire starts at the bottom and travels up (thus the darkening of his legs and left hand) then how, seeing as his torso and up are untouched, has the flag (which is higher than his head) caught on fire? You'd think the rest of him would have been engulfed first.

Could be a Nasa-like logo with a ship leaving a trail around the planet. That's more of what I was going for, but I guess Saturn is what came across. Thanks everyone for the votes, I never thought I'd get a lemon shirt printed. Feels kind of refreshing.

Saturn is the only important one with rings.

Presumably the cloth of the flag has an autoignition point much lower than that of the astronaut. The flag could have caught fire purely from the heat as the astronaut approached, and then the astronaut only caught on fire when he physically stepped on the sun.

I think they're just jealous of Mercurians who are closer to it.

The history books will show that while this perhaps was not President Jenna Bush's best idea, it certainly was not her worst.

Well, that's not a very good flag then. NASA should sue the maker for incompetence.

But before he hoisted the flag up, he was carrying it horizontally. Probably dragged it a bit cause the heat was so exhausting.

On a totally different point, while it's always nice to get printed, and I really enjoy this design, it can be a bit of a bummer when you get printed above a shirt that you think is head and shoulders above everything else that was done that week. Krisrobinson's People of the Sun really deserved to be in the fog. Here's hoping it gets a second chance cause it's a really refreshing and original design.

KrisRobinson deserves a good swift thwack on the wacom for being a pandery hack. but then, between travis and I, we know who'd win the gentleman award. frick, he's got the last name for it even.

That aside, I am, as I said before, quite glad this made print, because, as I also said, it was the most creative take on the theme in the top 7. And a solid shirt to boot.

The rings on the planet in the flag don't look saturnine.

Hmm... I don't think "saturnine" is supposed to be used in actual reference to the planet. Ah well.

Congrats on the print, tg! I'm glad we're only getting one straight-forward sun design this weekend.

That was a really good shirt and I've liked a good deal of his stuff when he tries. It's too bad his current entry is absolutely not refreshing or original.....I guess he really was serious in the "panda" thread that retreading successful designs to get prints was perfectly acceptable.
