Re: It came from the petri dish



The concept is great; however, I'm not sure how well it gets across here. The design feels very compressed, and is a little tricky to 'read' even sitting in front of my computer monitor. I fear that on a shirt, it would just come across as sort of a blurry, uneven stripe?

I'm not an artist by trade, so don't know the technical terms to suggest fixing this, but maybe make the dish a little less "flat" and angle the footprints in a slightly different direction, other than a straight light across the shirt, to give the image more depth?

I agree. How about start with the dish smaller and in the upper left hand corner and bring the progressively larger (and clearer) footprints angling toward the lower right hand corner? I would definitely buy this one! Love the idea of an unseen mad scientist. Just like Whit Bissell in the 50s B movies. :-). Good luck.
