Life's too short!

Sure, you could sit around waitin', pupatin', inflatin' your butterfly wings. Or you could take a leaf out of this bug's book, and follow the scientific method to get yourself in the air where you belong right now. ^_^


Here's a close-up detail:





Thanks for checking out this design, please vote it you like it! It's six colors on asphalt. View a BIG VERSION here.

Thank you!

Btw, the equation is for calculating the lift coeffecient of a flying object. :^)

very cute! im glad to see that if something goes wrong and he gets stranded somewhere, at least he'll have plenty to eat.

Right. ^__^ The problem with this guy was stopping him from eating too much of the glider before take off.

Spiritgreen-

I have no idea how you get so much life into your drawings, but dang, do I want to hang out with them.

That caterpillar is basically having the best time ever.

Adorbs.

Awwww, such a fun design! Does the formula mean anything in particular? I sure wish I was science/math literate.

I click for this one!
Love his face, just full of the joy of caterpillarin' and maybe not even knowing what comes next!!

The directional arrows on the graph paper remind me of something I learned in high school(couldn't tell you what, it was a long time ago!)

If they print it, I will buy.

It just had to be a caterpillar, huh?. That just make this piece so funny. I dig it.

Also, the leaf is really cool. I love its design. Well done!

Hmmmm... Not quite as "scientific method" as I'd like it to be, but more on topic than most others, and I can justify how the SM could have come into play here.

This is really cute, and I usually don't like "cute," but I'm voting for this...

Dam. Out of the fog. I will now take off my happy panda face and put on a sad panda face. Im not a science-y person, so this derby isn't for me overall, but I did love this one.

Muuuuuuuuu pouty face. }:x

Thanks, bass'. Tough competition this week!

This simple design has done well to get as far as it has. I'm too fond of the character & the concept to give up on it though, I'll try to figure something out in the future. ^_^

Bummed to see this one fall out of the fog. That's a great looking caterpillar.

Hey. :-) Only the top three shirts get printed.

It's not over until Thursday at noon, so if you have a few (hundred) friends who like flying caterpillars he may still have a chance. ;)

Congrats on making it back into the fog SpiritGreen. I love this design. He needs a good updraft of votes to fly high enough :D

Good luck!

I keep checking to see if this has made it to the fog yet - amongst others I really like this week. But no love

Ftr, I find it a clever design.

Re: The Impatient Aviator


Great design, but you got the arrows wrong. Wind has to be traveling faster on top than on the bottom for lift to be achieved, curved arrows on top, straight arrows on the bottom.

Re: The Impatient Aviator


I made sure the wind lines were more curved above the flying machine. It's not a perfect construction but it's just about working! :p

Hey, your design is floating around on tumblr because it was up on 9gag:

http://9gag.com/gag/39076

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see credit given to you. Look into it, perhaps?

Cheers!
