Looks like you missed a comma in the 8th line.

I just new I'd mess something up like that...
I sent a version to woot with the comma placed properly. They may go with the original if it prints.
Thanks for the catch!

Rads, I always look forward to seeing what you come up with! Fibonnaci's Numbers make think about the old TV show "Square, Two, One Contact" on PBS--(MathNet, I think

What a smart design!

I am routinely disappointed with anything math related... not this week though... unsure if I'll buy but things like this are a step in the right direction. Got to have the proper merger of art and math... otherwise you just look like a geek wearing a shirt.

As an undergraduate, I can wear pure math shirts and nobody will care. If this prints, I'll add it to my growing collection of pi shirts this site produces.

I agree, though, a shirt needs to be clever, simple, and visually pleasing for me to wear it. I'm not the kind who wears a shirt reading "1/x: can't touch this" around campus.

I'm a big fan of octopi and mollusks in general, so this amuses me.

Re: Fun With Fibonacci


would love to know how may hours you spent on this... the tedium of modifying numbers to patterns is crazy

You know, it wasn't all that bad. I spent about 4.5 hours on this, but it wasn't all spent on arranging the numbers. I used the area type tool in illustrator on a nautilus shell shape - I had to monkey around with the font size, the justification and the kerning. (it was all one color at this point)

Then I brought it into Photoshop and used layer masks to color it-
I made three layers (base color, highlights and shadow) selected the pixels from the layer with the text, made a mask for each of the three layers, and then painted each.
I think I spent more time on the nautilus face/tentacles, though.

It would have taken a lot longer to make it how I suppose you made your Pi shirt... Sorry.

Hope that helps!

great insight... i haven't ventured into photoshop yet... i drive the vector train through illustrator and coreldraw...the sPiral shirt ended up taking me way longer than i thought it would for such a simple concept. (embarrassingly long trial and error)
thanx for sharing

If you wanted to stay in illustrator, you could always just use a clipping mask. Make the shape or path with text, copy the original, overlay it with the shape you want, select them both an right click and select clipping mask. Paste your original underneath it and you should be able to modify their colors independently.

I'm getting really cooking tired of entries with letters and numbers on them making up the whole image. I know all of you have seen The Raven design. Get some originality please.

Me, too. I hate it when my math shirts are ruined with numbers.
