Looks much like a statue you'd pass by while playing Bioshock. GMV!

I love the art, but Ayn Rand ruined Atlas imagery for me.
=(

I love everything about this shirt.
I just can't see wearing it.
Also I dislike the color...
... and the graphic.

I liked it better without the halftone fade, but definitely a good submission.

I's funny, because somehow Ayn Rand and art deco style got tied together in my mind, so I had kind of expected an entry like this. I think it's because some of the paperback cover art for her books (Anthem and Atlas Shrugged especially) are very reminiscent of Deco.

I think it looked a bit more 'art deco' in your earlier designs, but I still like this one. Nice work.

This makes me want to get back to finishing up Atlas Shrugged now.

That's funny! I've been trying to get through that book for YEARS. Seems like something worth reading, but it just doesn't hold my interest. I always think, just read a little more, it'll get good.

Nice work here. I wondered who was going to take on the naked guy. This time period suits your style.

I don't know who ayn rand is, btw. I'm not much of a reader. I'm more of a doer, actually. I do things...

without reading.

I fully expected Atlas Shrugged which this graphic could be. Someone should do Fountainhead.

Ayn Rand was one of history's greatest advocates of doers. If you are the doer you claim to be, you would enjoy Atlas Shrugged and Fountainhead. BTW she also afirmed that doer's should be adequately rewarded for their contribution.

You have to purchase a woot shirt before you can vote. To prevent ballot stuffing ya know.

Awesome design, btw. Is it gonna be printed on a grey shirt?

When I saw the derby subject I too had Fountainhead or Atlas Shrugged on my mind. Love the design. GMV!

Ayn Rand gets a negative wrap because of her hand in molding the philosophy of capitalism, but I have to say of all the books I've read, Atlas Shrugged is definately the most thought provoking and influential book on my life. Her philosophy is ultimately flawed but the core principles are values any rational person would find important to leading a justified and fulfilling life. Her mold for the ideal form of capitalism is unattainable, but that does not diminish the emphasis she places on reward through hard work and accountability.
Anyway...it's kind of hard to put in words. I'll let her do that. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand why capitalism isn't as bad as it's made out to be.

As for the shirt...yea i thought Atlas Shrugged as soon as I saw it and it is definately art deco. GMV.

Who is John Galt? It's funny how Atlas Shrugged is portrayed in this design. I really like Ayn Rand's writing, and her books truly are thought provoking. Definitely GMV

Heh. I'll be getting my Master's in English in June, I NEVER leave a book unfinished, and yet, I've never been able to finish a Rand. If they ever get good, I'm missing it.

The globe isn't actually resting on his shoulders. I thought that was the central aspect of Atlas.
