Re: Hello Universe



Supernova! The deaths of ancient stars gave birth to new elements through nuclear fusion, and those elements in turn became the building blocks of our planet and all life upon it.
As Carl Sagan said, we are all "Star stuff".

Hello Universe. :^)




See a BIG VERSION here. This is 3 inks on an asphalt shirt.

Thanks for looking, please vote if you like this design!

Loose interpretation, loose illustration. I was feeling very 'loose' when doing this, as you can tell. I'm not even sure if it'll fly, since it's very...abstractly astronomical, but I can try. And rhyme, apparently. I guess I was sort of thinking about what would happen if you applied the old 'tortoise and hare' story to something like... you know, making the universe...galaxy...world, with the hare rushing to make as many as he could and the tortoise carefully crafting just a few. Like earth or something. Is your heart warm and fuzzy yet?

Something something 'earth is on the back of a giant turtle' something something inspired by Watership Down somewhere with the rabbit gods with star eyes maybe a little, something something I am SO UNBELIEVABLY CHEESY I KNOW, SHUTTING UP FOREVER NOW.

Six colors on navy.

Re: More Galaxy Soup



A revisit of an older design, now with more chewy planet bits. Rearranged and less messy than the older version. Hopefully the woot gods will find it acceptable :P.

4 colors on black.

Well! I wanted to make something like a sequel to family portrait (not so soon…but the derby theme is too appealing…), so I kept the spirit of that previous design. It’s a pity that the image is so small, you can’t see the different situations…that’s why here you have a detailed view of each one! Hope you like it!:D

Re: The n-Body Problem



Keplerian and Newtonian physics, canonical symbols, eccentricty, velocity, energy...

The design is simple to highlight the elegance of the mathematics.

Re: Space Dunk



Great concept! Really fun idea. Just wish it was on black...I think it would make the yellow pop a lot more...

Re: Europa's Dream



I’ve always been fascinated by the array of Canada–France–Hawaii telescopes located near the summit of Mauna Kea mountain, on Hawaii’s Big Island.

I challenge myself to design space on a light colored shirt. Hope you like it.

6 colors + Halftones on Silver

Re: Einstein's Lens



One of the concepts to come out of General Relativity was the idea that the warping of space time due to massive stellar objects could bend light. This came to be known as Gravitational Lensing, and is a useful tool for discovering black holes and other massive objects.

Re: Pi in the Ski



"Pi in the Ski"

In an attempt to avoid debate over the correlation between astronomy and pi, my design itself intends to illustrate the mystery of the Great Pyramid. I included both the position of the of the pyramids on the Giza plateau in respect to Orion's Belt, and the symbol of pi, proposed as a gift from the heavens.

It's an imaginative approach to history, but hey... it's so fun to think.

Re: Antikythera Mechanism



Antikythera Mechanism

Believed to be constructed around 100 BC, the Antikyther Mechanism is history's oldest known computer, designed to calculate the position of the Sun and Moon, as well as other astronomical information, all upon input of a given date.

Just goes to show that old people are a lot smarter than we think...

Re: SPACE TIME continuum



Space-time theory posits that space and time are not as independent of each other as one may suspect. By combining the two into one continuum we (and by ‘we’ I mean people much smarter than me) can understand the universe much better.

Thanks for viewing; I hope you enjoy!

Watch out for flying space octopuses, they'll getcha every time. (I feel like that should be octopi, but wikipedia tells me different (: )

Re: Sassy Saturn



What I like about the derby is it gives me a chance to stretch my artistic limbs a bit. This design is a bit out of my comfort zone, any constructive criticism is welcome!

If this version of dinosaur extinction involves someday finding a frozen T-Rex orbiting Mars, I am ALL FOR IT!

Great design!
