Cassette tapes are oooooold. Maybe someday archaeologists will be digging them up.

I have to order one for my music-loving archeologist friend, if it prints!

I'm an archaeologist. I've excavated plenty of vinyl, but never a cassette tape.

"We've never seen one of these before, but judging by the faded writing on it "Jonty's sexy time mix tape" - we're fairly certain it's part of 20th century man's bizarre mating rituals.

We'll file this next to the fluffy dice and keyboard tie we found yesterday."

:p

Nice illustration, Kinzoku! GMV. ^__^

Re: Ancient Artifact


Wow, thanks guys. I didn't at all expect this to be doing so well. If I thought it would do well, I'd have submitted it on Saturday morning. But I just drew it for fun so I took my time. It's a great surprise to see this at the top of the hotness.

Really nice drawing and shading.
It almost looks like it was made in the sand with a stick based on the shirt color, which is really cool.

Re: Ancient Artifact


Really neat idea and good drawing. I have one complaint, and this is getting a bit picky, but it seems like the tape is not emphasized. Especially on a shirt, the people will be what you see first and you will really have to look for the tape.

I love when people use one color in their designs. It shows real talent and maturity to make a great design that way.

It's actually perfect. I don't know how many times I have to point out where artifacts/features are in a photograph. It's dirt!

Love this one. I especially appreciate the use of a shirt color you don't often see here.

The funny thing is that cassettes are ancient now.

The perfect shirt for fans of David Macaulay's "Motel of the Mysteries." (For some reason I keep getting a Woot server error when I try to insert the Amazon link, too tired to figure out if it's Woot's problem or something dumb I'm doing with syntax - but if this shirt amuses you, look it up!)

You must not know any archaeologists. Nobody is more retro than an archaeologist! ;)

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • I'll buy your chachkies, sell me your watch please.

Re: Ancient Artifact


Nice texture with the crosshatching. I really dig your drawing style.

While I have an appreciation for bold graphics, the organic flavor or your design is very refreshing.

Good stuff!
