This was The Grid back in Charles Babbage's days. ^__^

2 colors on a navy shirt. You can see a BIG VERSION here.

Thanks for looking! Please vote if you like this design.

Happy 2011 everyone,

Thank you! My great-grandfather flew his hot air balloon in front of Queen Victoria, you know...

I'm sure he'd be so proud. ;-p

Ended up looking nice. I still may enter mine, but you are genius for the wallpaper-like light trail. Great job with the glowy halftones too.

Great idea, SG. I really think it stands alone as a quality design even if you're not familiar with Tron. Nice work!

If the grid where created on Babbage's analytical engine, could one be digitized and sent into it considering was all mechanical?

Over analysis aside. As soon as I saw your rough in the preview thread, I knew you where going to hit this one out of the park (what would the Cricket equivalent to that phrase be?)! The wall paper really makes the design!

Oh man this design is SO awesome! I'm a TRON fan and with the new TRON movie out, this has got to make the cut! It's been awhile since I've seen a design here on shirt.woot that I've really wanted to get too. This is the only shirt I'm voting for to help get it printed.

To get truly truly nit-picky, this could get rejectionated since Tron is also a video game.

But yeah, this is a neat one. GMV.

It was a movie before it was a game so it counts as a movie reference. Also GMV and a buy if it wins.

not to be negative nelly, but the colors are blue and yellow. not yellow and purple or blue and orange. that definitely is blue and yellow.

I understand you're just saying what you see midge' but maybe there's a bit of an optical illusion at work, what with the halftones.


This is my orange next to true yellow:

Re: Ancestry


Nice, I do believe I must have me one of these. So question, when you submit a design can you indicate colors that you'd like to have glow in the dark? Or do they just surprise you. Seems to me glowing tron lines would work well with this.

GitD ink would definitely work well with a Tron design. :^)

Technically it isn't allowed in the derby and Woot will normally reject a design that mentions it. It does happen occasionally though. Robbie Lee's "Squeeze" got printed and Woot went with the very cool glow in the dark alternate version he'd also submitted.

It's more common to see special inks, techniques and extra colors on the daily shirts.
