Behold Nikola Tesla the Transient Traveling Time Lord.
His Tardis is a tribute to Nikola's Wardenclyffe Lab and screwdriver to the Tesla Coil.

Re: Tesla the Time Lord


First - This is a first rate concept! Tesla could have totally been a time lord - Edison must have been some sort of evil space fiend trying to destroy Earth.

Second - the moire patterns in your halftones are killing an otherwise excellent execution.

Please redo the half tones with an angle of 22.5 degrees, so the don't turn into weird spots when resized or printed.

GMV +1 and got it again if you resubmit a fix.

I can see what you mean, especially since it was reduced at a slightly off percentage.
For a cleaner preview you can see it on my DA page

The preview on your Deviant Art page looks a lot better. I highly recommend you start halftoning at an angle of 22.5 or 67.5 degrees. This will prevent the problem in the future and will make your shirts when they print look a lot better - woot does a scaled down version of the print for the ladies sizes and if you don't halftone correctly for the full size the women's prints get a bit jacked up.

I could believe it. Edison did electrocute an elephant to death once, purely as a scare tatic so people wouln't buy into Tesla's AC theory.

(also: I think this shirt is a brillant idea!)

Happily voted for this, and even happier to see this hop up to the fog. I like the way that you've used an entirely different color scheme than one might expect to pull this off.

Re: Tesla the Time Lord

This. Is. Brilliant.

If it places, I'm ordering one so fast that it'll make woot's servers crash as hard as an eight year old experiencing a sugar coma on Halloween night.

This. Is. TESLA! ::kicks fellow wooter:: ;)

Joking aside, I too want to snatch this up opening day if it prints, but the funds are too low. So I am counting on a print of this and for it to stay in the reckoning for a while.

Tesla is truly underappreciated in history for his genius. Edison was a hack Good job on this.

He's not The Doctor, and TARDIS is a class of ship so this is his version.
