Re: It is Rocket Science!


Re-Submitted with a color adjustment. Somewhere in the process, things got a little too....teal, and it didn't match the official color anymore.

Now that it's fixed, I like it better with the darker blue. Thanks Mavyn for letting me know!

Awesome! Glad to help, hope it blasts off!

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

My Brother-in-Law has a degree in Aeronautical Engineering. We loved being able to say "He *is* a rocket scientist!"

Sadly, he doesn't work in his field anymore, there was more money in computer programming.

*Googles images* Wow! You are right!

My inspiration was mostly the covers from all the 1950s and 1960s pulp SF I read. If they show landed rockets, they are typically sitting on their tail-fins, on an empty plain. The mountains were a way of addressing the horizon-line without leaving it a boring line.

Together, it looks like I did manage to create a highly stylized image of WSMR. Thank you for mentioning it, I just learned something nifty today!

Thank you! As I mentioned in an earlier reply, my love comes from all the old SF I grew up reading. But being a child of the 60's & 70's the space race, and especially the shuttle program, was a big deal in my life.

I love this design! It brings me the feel of the early SF serials and has a modern message too. I so want this on a shirt! :D

The bottom caption should have said "It's not brain surgery."

I don't know.

Yep, old classic SF is exactly what I was going for. It works so well with the WPA art style. Thanks!

That would have been a funny twist!

This is a design I'd rather hang on the wall. Maybe I'll just nail a coat hanger to the drywall if it wins.

Heh! Thanks for the compliment! They do make display frames specifically for hanging t-shirts. I bet that woot could make a bundle selling them as an accessory.
