Re: Shark Theory


As always, please be gentle with the comments...I know the artwork is subpar -- that's because I'm not an artist; just someone who enters for fun

About the shirt:

After collecting data (one step of the scientific method), it has been discovered that both ice cream sales and shark attacks increase in the summer. The only explanation for this must be that eating ice cream leads to being attacked by a shark ;)

The idea is great! But could be a little more artistic.

Re: Shark Theory


Jeanerz, I love shark shirts! (Probably because I am so terrified of them, that they fascinate me!) Thank you for posting in your comments the theory behind your chart. Science is not my thing , I think I doodled my way through seventh and eighth grade , can't remember 9th and 10th so must have REALLY zoned out, then they gave up and let me take art all afternoon everyday for the last 2 years and that was sooooo much better!

You don't have to have the best artistic skills in the world to design a wearable T-shirt or otherwise present a fun idea.
See http://xkcd.com/794/
That said, I think you and your idea -- which is otterific -- would have really been better served if you could have used text. It is a little hard to tell that that's an ice cream cone (and not a push pin, for example).

Thanks Yeah, I think charts would be a lot better presented with words than pictures. I usually put that disclaimer at the top of all my entries so I don't get a lot of people giving me crap for being "sloppy" or something...I mean, come on...I KNOW I can't draw...and if you try to tell me how to make it better, I probably don't have the skills to actually take your suggestions. Anyway, yeah, I thought the ice cream would look better if the top was kind of melting into the other layer...but I didn't know how to do that...so I left it at basically one circle plopped on another.

Hey, you did a fine job on the shark.

Re: Shark Theory


That is true. (And Sharks are not the easiest thing in the world to draw.)
You're holding back on us Jeanerz!

lol thanks. I googled for how to draw a shark. I found a fairly simple looking one and tried to mimic the important parts.

Another possible explanation is that both, ice cream eaters and meat eaters are attracted by delicious foods of the beach during the summer.

The design is ok. I support one hundred percent it.
