Well, actually, two people work on shirts all the time here. They're called collabs.

Why does ramyb always put "saved" in his first comment? What's that supposed to mean?

Others do it too.
They'll go back later and edit that post with real content but just didn't have the time at the moment, since they want their post to be the first one in their thread.

Re: Double Helix



Decided to rework this entry from the events of 2009 derby. Made some changes to the design to try to make an abstract representation of the progressive development in the understanding of DNA structure. Hope you enjoy

I thought I'd add a bit about the idea for this design as it relates to the topic. Starting at the botom of the horizontal section is a representation of Rosalind Franklin's xray crystallography experiment, which gave the first indication of the double helical structure of DNA. The DNA strands get more detailed moving upwards to show the progression of this understanding, until finally the vertical one shows the base pairing as well. Superimposed on the design as well are the structures of the base pairs. I put a lot of thought into the changes I wanted to make to this design to make the theme come through. The design sort of serves as a "DNA blueprint" so to speak. Hopefully that makes sense.

EDIT:
After trying very hard several times to explain my idea of how this shirt fits the theme, I felt this comment very concisely stated what I was going for:

bmjayne wrote:It feels like I'm moving through an artistic virtual timeline of DNA research as the understanding of it becomes more and more clear (and more and more prominent in the design). I also like how the fragments of molecules and strands correlate to the process of putting the pieces together, as in the process of discovery.



(Thanks)

I didn't realize DNA was discovered in 2009. But this entry does highlight a very important issue: that your work is almost never something relevant to themes. This doesn't evoke any story of 2009. It's just a double helix that you attached to some other story that somehow involved DNA. And right now, it's off theme again because DNA is part of science, but not the scientific method. It is tenuous at best. Which would be an excellent screenname for you if Ramyb ever gets rightfully banned.

Re: Curiosity Kills



Back already. Woot publicly apologies for "oh shiny," so now I love them again

Also, thanks for all the feedback in the pre-thread. I wanted to upload this one first and see where it goes since it was already done. I do plan to try a different version (unless this one takes off), with the eye and odRocks otterific color-age. That will take some reworking the line work and some color changing to get the highlights.

I don't normally feel the need to respond to you, but there is a clear methodology represented in the design. I included a representation of Rosalind Franklin's xray crystallography experiment, basic double helix models, and then the up close molecular structure of the individual elements and base pairing. And considering that dancing flasks, arbitrary math equations and birds sitting on people's heads are all considered scientific method in this derby, I'd say I put in a pretty strong effort to make this on topic. And considering woot essentially said that putting a beaker on any shirt would make it on topic, I'd say that any tie to science of any sort should make things on topic this week. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assue you didn't recognize the elements in the design, rather than just choosing to ignore them.

Before I descend into my rant I must qualify my statement. I mean no offense to you as I haven't been on shirtwoot long enough to be familiar with anyone's work. That being said, I am disgusted by the shirtwoot community because by simply illustrating a cat,artists seem to instantaneously place in the top 15 shirts and likely gets his or her shirt printed, regardless of the minimal amount of thought going into the message of the shirt. Further more, all these internet references have been beaten to death and yet the simple minded shirtwoot community consistently vote them into the top 3.

I won't lie... I really REALLY like this one. Sadly, I don't see the "method" part of the theme involved. Add like an eyeball looking at it or something.

Re: Probably Not Cute Enough



I think the mouse is plenty cute enough! ;)

But I think taking out the gray and using colored liquids in the beakers would be cool. The image needs to be resized, I think, because it looks too close to the collar and side of the template.

Using an old design = a pretty strong effort to make this on topic for Ramy. Duly noted.

I'm not saying other people are on theme. I'm just saying that you're adding one more notch on your reputation for being totally off theme every week.

Try Lomo Saltado, it's like Tallarin Saltado but with french fries instead of noodles. If you try that place, let me know how it is.



i saw a bunch of recipes with lettuce but i wasn't sure it was necessary.

i am definitely going to try it. my brother and i are splitting lomo saltado and seco de cordero (lamb stewed in red wine, pumpkin, beer, ancho chiles and red peppers). its gonna be otterific. i'll let you know how it is, but i have nothing to compare it to yet. (note to self: find secondary peruvian restaurant for comparison).

Happy Beer.

I actually clicked on it because I was intrigued how a shirt with a broken thumbnail got into the fog. I had to see what was so awesome that the thumbnail was irrelevant.

Love it.

All the ramy hating is getting really freaking old. His designs are well done, and people like them. If I had half as much talent as he (she?) did, I would also try to cash in on woot shirts and give people what they want and vote for.

Re: Double Helix



Very close to a shirt woot already printed. It's also off-topic. To be fair, there are other entries that are merely science-related, instead of scientific-method related, that woot has not rejected. But it's still Friday afternoon.

Ramyb, you already have something in this derby that IS on topic and good artwork imo. Why are you throwing in something that is a rework?

Thanks!

I agree. I tried to make the broccoli stalk more detailed, but it didn't quite come out like I thought it would. The carrot was from a previous derby entry, my first one actually.

In general I need to work on my detail work for sure. Getting better on the pen tablet as I use it more for practice.

Re: Order of Operations



My only issue with this shirt is that there are two times when you add [granola bar/2]. Once at the beginning and once at the end. So.. the math doesn't really add up for me.

However, I'm still voting yes and I'm still buying it if it gets picked. :D

What a shckingly massive redesign. I can tell you put a lot of work into this one. It's completely different from the last time.





As for the BS tie in to Rosalind Franklin (by the way why are the telomeres still "disintegrating") I fail to see any reference to her crystallography. It appears you kind of put in a hashed x but I'm not even sure that's it. What I'm looking for is the following and it's not there.



And to use this as a tie in to the scientific method is pretty weak anyway since rarely is the accepted method of science "steal someone else's data and use it to scoop their research."
