While I love the shirt, I think it only sped up the nerd...we were around long before the computer!

"Creation of Nerd" can be interpreted in two ways. It could mean the event at which the nerd was created. It could also refer to something the nerd created. I think the latter interpretation would apply very well to this shirt. ;-)

Wow, I really love this design and how it was done!
I'd love to buy this for a friend of mine if not buying one for just myself.

Why does the nerd look like a DB?

Thank you all. The title refers to the title of the original work but i do not think it takes no title to understand the design. Can be interpreted in a way that everyone wants.

Curious. What historical art style is this?

Yea, that's not what the derby says though. The contest is the history of the internet in a historical art style. Sorry to be a pooper. You're not the only one.

Nothing against your art. I like it. I like the concept. I like the execution. Just frustrating.

You can consider it as a Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo for example, and based on a painting by the same author so it belongs to a historical style of art.: D

But... but... but... I thought Michelangelo was a Renaissance artist and an early Mannerist. I didn't know he worked in Illustrator. Now I'll have to rewrite my dissertation.

Hahahaha, ok can consider a kind of Renaissance painting. Perhaps the derby is more focused on painting styles of the 20th century, but did not see any restriction on older styles. I would have done more faithful and colorful but believe me that time is an important factor in the derby. Still think the gray scale is not too bad.

It could also be a ten find graffiti painted on a wall in your city, in fact the style is not very definite but I think that basically does not matter much: D

Oh wow that is similar, but 4 years between similar designs is probably ok ;p

I never had seen before, in fact four years ago did not even know that existed this page. Also in this derby is a design with the same concept but did not see it until I uploaded mine. It is a recurring idea with which they have done many things. Some better and some worse.

AhHAAAH!! Good point! I see it completely different now. Thank you! Btw, it WOULD look cool with some graffiti splashed across the marble. LOVE!!

This is obviously an image from the Sixteenth Chapel, I have no idea how you didn't understand it earlier.

Apparently it is known as the "Sistine" Chapel because of the Pope "Sixtus IV" (as Rocky IV: D).
