Re: Albert Funkenstein and The Scientific Method!


After years of scientific pursuit the boys, sick of the smell of rubber and rats, got together to form the band. Secretly longing for some action. Chuck could play a mean bass. And surprisingly Sig had rhythm. Tom is electrifying on the lead guitar. While Ivan is there to play the ever loving cow bell. And of course headlining is the man with the golden voice Albert Funky Funky Funkenstein! Put your hands together and make some noise! I can't hear you!!!

btw, if you haven't figured it out yet... that's Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison and Ivan Pavlov on Cow bell.

Pavlov on the cow bell- I totally get it! But for the record, I hate Sigmund Freud. Though, no one ever likes bass players...

Would be really funny with Steven Hawking on the 'talk box.' But this is positively algebraic. I love it.

Actually Darwin's on Bass and Freud's on drums. I'm not a fan of Freud myself but his look is funny to draw. Try googling pics of him and you will see what I mean. And those are his real glasses. In pics I saw they look like gag ones.

I thought of Steven Hawkings but he seemed more new school. Maybe he can be in a "boy band" version with Carl Saegan and other comtempories.

Pairing Pavlov/bell and Edison/Electric guitar was inspired. And Freud really reminds me of another famous drummer for some reason: Animal. Nicely done. I hope it passes the theme muster!

Wasn't sure people would like color choice. I appreciate hearing you like it.

Inspired is an understatement. When the idea hit me I felt giddy like a school girl havin' a Beiber-attack! Things clicked and flowed. as to the theme issue I think its so left field from what others are doing that it hits the theme straight on... but that's my opinion. Glad you like the design.

Glad to hear that. Being new to these derbies and feelin' unsure it connecting, its good to hear comments from those who's designs rock. Here's to keepin' on truckin'.

Excellent color scheme, love the art style, and Pavlov on the cowbell is a very clever touch.

However, I don't see how a bunch of scientists relates to the scientific method. Sort of like the cartoon beakers and such. Sciency and cool, for sure. Demonstrating the scientific method? Not so much.

nice associations with what they are known for. Though shouldn't Sig have a cigar? or is it that sometimes a drumstick is just a drumstick?

maybe this helps to explain:

This week, show us your take on the Scientific Method. Maybe you'll attest to the value of repeatable results, show us an experiment in motion, or just cram a beaker onto a cute fuzzy animal design and say, 'IT'S TOTALLY SCIENCE!'


My take on "The Scientific Method" is that of a rock band.
I'm glad you like the design even though you feel its not on theme.

I keep coming back to this one, wanting to comment but not really knowing how to say it. Your style is so intriguing. It looks well-worn, as if you lifted the images from an old magazine or something. I think it's the quality of the lines and the colors you use, but there's something about it that makes it look classic. it's like a really good album: the first spin will make you feel like you've been listening to it your whole life.

What i'm trying to say is that I like it

Saved the image and put it as my desktop. If I can't get it in shirt form, I at least will have it every time I log on.

Comin' from you... that means a lot. Thanks for the love. I wish others (meaning 99% of the voters! ;)) appreciated it as well.
Thank you for the compliment.

If it doesn't print here I will try my darn'dest to get it printed elsewhere because I really love this one personally. No need for back alley dealings or hiding from the N-a-z-i-s to get it!

EDIT: Here's a link to a tweaked version of the design. I hadn't finished the 16x20 when submitting because its really hard working at that size on my computer. My widdle computer can't handle it. But I worked on it last night and change some things a bit... things which make it better. Let me know what you think.

Great shirt. Like your science selection as well (maybe could have had Marie Curie on a stripper pole for full on misogynistic effect).

Also, does anyone else out there have an uncontrollable hatred for the term 'otterific'? Is it just me? It kinda reminds me of ewoks and the whole reason I decided to enlist in the Imperial Troopers (aside from the sweet jet bike).

hahaha otterific. I'm in a polymer engineering and science phd program, and at the annual holiday party a few of the professors always play together as the band "Poly and the Mers" I thought it was a joke the first time I saw a flyer, but they are pretty serious about it... lol

Well, if they ever change their name to Albert Funkenstein and The Scientific Method let me know. I can design their shirts!

Re: Albert Funkenstein and The Scientific Method!


Hey guys and gals wanted to give a big thank you everyone voting.
I appreciate the support so much.
I hope it continues.

I don't have the internet presence that many of the other artists have such as RamyB or others which seem to have a strong following since they have been doing this much longer than me.

So that's where your help comes in.
Please feel free to share this design on FB, Twitter, etc asking for more support.
I personally love this design and want it to print if not here... somewhere, and your support can make that happen.

Here's to being a dreamer!

Re: Albert Funkenstein and The Scientific Method!


I really love that big bass player in the back (left) he makes it for me. Who ever he is, is now my favorite scientist! Seriously, your artwork is great. You do humans sooo well. This design is very cool.

You have only been submitting for 2 months, but people are going to get to know you.

At 1st Because of your screen name I thought you were female, now know you are a dude! Is Midge in honor of your little kid? Well, keep the characters coming

You know you totally already got my vote . Wish I could hear these guys rip out a tune or two!

Thank you SnowQueenVT. I appreciate you support. Much love here! Yeah I'm a guy and the screen name has a back story but suffice to say my nickname to my friends is "Midge" short for last name.
I have 2 groups on FB dedicate to my stuff.
one for my designs click here and one for my webcomic bloodhound.
Check em out and join.

and BTW, the bass player is Charles "Chuck" Darwin.

Re: Albert Funkenstein and The Scientific Method!

See what great taste I have? Choosing Darwin?(Whom I know nothing about!)...now I am interested enough to investigate...thank you , I will enjoy that. Your shirt really is great. Yes, I checked out Blood hound VERY cool!!! Very pleased to enjoy your artwork, because it is so very wolverinetastic!!!

I didn't think it was too disturbing but I guess for each us things made be seen differently but glad you are into disturbing things and this one is for you!

druidbob wrote:This is great! hope it wins.

I wish it would too. But something tells me that it just may not be in the cards. People don't know me and my work. That's cool though. I wish I had over 600 voters driving here to vote. I wish. Thanks though for the support. Its really encouraging in the face of seeing possible hack designs of others doing much better than those which deserve more appreciation.
