18. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666. -Revelation 13:18 NIV

I have absolutely no idea what I'm looking at.


Nothing follows.

lol. I was afraid of that.
I think it's my idea of the ship.
But there is at least a visual pun, with the name and it resembles Homer's bartender, Mo. But I didn't intend that.
For the n, it's the number of parallel universes possible in the novel.

And I probably should have called the shirt 'The Number of the Beast' which I thought was the name of the ship for years, but I recently reread it, which I shouldn't have done, it was better the first time.

One more thing, and I'm glad you asked me about it too, btw.

I am not a talented artist, as some of the designers clearly are; however, I think many merely design for the woot crowd taking few chances {cats}.

I entered a bit more about a year ago, and I've learned I'm not super funny either :-(
So I don't expect people to get my dry wit and off beat puns, but if you're tired of cats...
VOTE for the Gay Deceiver.

(Now I'm just soliciting) It's one of my better visual comps.
Thanks.

WOW. Thanks!!
I mean it will never print, but at least it's weird, and has an obscure Time Continua tie-in.
I think I could actually wear this one, and that is my main criteria from now on: Would I wear this? Hellz yeah.

Robert Heinlein's attempt to tie his disparate universes into one cosmology. The novel: The Number of the Beast. Not terribly bad. My understanding is that he wrote it to pay off some rather large medical bills. His follow up books were superior .

Funny - I'm just now re-reading TNOTB and, when seeing the thumbnail for this design, said to myself "nooooo...."!

Pleasantly surprised! Well played. Not RAH's best by any means, but a fun read.

thanks, for a creepy trip take the wiki link to the novel page and look at the original cover art by Richard M. Powers (hilarious name also) and look for the time traveling Darth Maul of Barsoom. It freaked me out, but really it was probably plagiarized or borrowed.
