nice design, love the muted colors. at first i thought your title said, "the legend of syphilis" which made me say, "what?" and click on it, which i then re-read and realized what it was! haha, but atleast it got me to click on it!

wait.. didnt sisyphus push the boulder UP the hill.. then it rolled down..
looks like that dude is going down a hill, unless youre saying sisyphus went up backwards and straight legged..
the visual is bugging me.


Besides, I get the gravity connection. But its tenuous. Id even say off topic.

Sisyphus's stance is supposed to emphasize the struggle. When I'm starting to have trouble moving something heavy, I always flip backwards like that- of course, it's entirely possible I'm doing it wrong, because I suck at moving heavy things :P But yeah, the goal was to make it look like he's weak from effort and losing the battle, almost at the point of being crushed by this huge object.

I disagree that the gravity connection is tenuous- I'd argue that it's one of the most on-theme entries this week. Sisyphus's entire existence became a struggle against the forces of gravity- he literally had nothing left except the endless struggle of pushing against it. In many entries this week, the effect of physics is temporary- but for Sisyphus, it is unending and oppressive, dominating him.

HM....

Is this a gravity based entry?

Would you kindly...

Yeah, I like your styling here! Definitely the most physics related part of Greek mythology, even if there was no way of ever completing the task.

Re: The Legend of Sisyphus


people on woot like voting for shirts that a 13 year old would wear. bright colors, animals, childish concepts (a hula hooping sun)

this is a shirt someone older then 13 can wear, look cool, and not look like a child. you could wear this shirt to a bar or out on the town. unlike most shirts on woot which restrict you to your basement/friends basement. GMV
