I realize that Monet isn't KNOWN for his portraits, but he was a damn good portrait artist:

Hey! Harry Kroto (the discoverer) just spoke at my school! This shirt is awesome.

Do you have a Caution Octopus shirt? Men's small, perhaps?

Love the yellow eyes...I too was born in 1982 and used to watch this video over and over (had it on VHS). It used to scare me when his eyes turned to yellow! lol. GMV!

Glad you like it.

No copyright on rainbow colors, I'm fairly sure. It's a completely self-created eclipse that happens to be acting in the same way as a prism. :-)

You're welcome. Yeah, Rollins is seriously cool. Be sure and check out his spoken word albums/DVD's. He's also an amusing writer as well.

Hopefully the earth is not too low. Woot has some restrictions as to how far low on the shirt they'll print.



This is the 2nd Derby I have entered (The first being the one with the words. Last week's competition was SOO awesome, it would have been total folly for me to even try).
I HOPE I have the placement right in the file. I wish I could have gotten this up sooner, but it took me 3 straight days working on it. I would LOVE to win, of course, but I know you guys are really great, and I'd be very happy with just a decent showing of votes. (SO VOTE FOR ME, PLEASE!! ;) )

Thank you for your comments and advice, Jaden!!!

Re: 1988, The Human Genome Project


The Human Genome Project officially started in 1990. It unofficially started in 1983. Where did you get 1988?

Did you do this all on the computer? Or was it pencil art that you scanned in?

I am asking because I am still trying to learn how things work. Thank you

It was initiated in 1988. Your article says it began "formally" in 1990....in 1988 an organization was formed that was basically the roots of the Human Genome Project.

Re: 1983: Year of the Boar Resub



This reminds me of political cartoons from the early 1900s. The same fine artwork that conveys a strong message despite how much time has passed. However, those cartoons did not show animals or people in Asian martial arts wear.

He has talent, I just think some people are frustrated seeing the same artists win every week. Which is also probably why Woot upped the prize money to $1000 to try to attract new designers.

But mine's also the official government website. I'd trust that over random sources. Makes it a little misleading. The design is no less cool but I think it's innacurate.

EDIT: See my edit below also. If you read the article that website is the abstract for, it also says the HGP began in 1990.

I'll trust the US government website and countless other sources over a single European website. Not everything on the internet is accurate; be sure to check for multiple sources.

EDIT: It says that was the founding of HUGO, the organization that did the project...not that it started that year. I just clicked on and read the article that abstract is for and it also says the HGP started in 1990.

This is not a pirate. Everyone knows rats cannot be pirates. After all, who would turn over their booty to a rat? Sometimes rats dress as pirates....really!

Just type "lunar landing" or "moon landing" in google, there are multiple sites that say it was faked.

The fact that there are many misinformed people with internet access does not make a thing true.

I want to know if you use illustrator for your final designs, or some other program? I'm kinda new to this whole web-publishing of my work and the detail in your work is amazing. I can't seem to get my designs to look this crisp or clean.

All of the reputable sources say it was first "articulated" then or something similar. They all go on to say it started in 1990.

actually imo some people are more jealous that cho wins and gets the money each week. But he is an artist so why shouldnt he win. Most weeks there arent 3 shirts really worthy of printing.

Re: 1982: Thriller 2





The enthusiasm for the "Thriller Shirt" has been incredible, but some have asked for a more subtle design. I present to you "Thriller 2" — and I'm 'thrilled' with the new design!

This shirt has been redesigned to include smaller "Zombie Michael Jacksons" arranged in two rows across the chest.

Thanks to everyone for the great support and feedback. I debated doing this redesign, weighing the effect it might have on the original entry, but I really just wanted to offer the best possible shirt for everyone... so once again, thank you!

Please help me to get the word out if you're pumped about the new design!

Dude, you're both right. The organization that put together the Human Genome Project started in 1988...so you could say it started there. Or you could say it formally started in 1990 when that organization presented their plan for the project to congress. Either way, it started in some year, and the date isn't on the shirt lol. It's a sweet shirt, and I must have it O_O.

HUGO (Human Genome Organisation) was started in 1989, though, wasn't it?

I could be mistaken.... or maybe the site has it wrong.

Anyway, Woot's not going to disqualify the shirt because it got the year wrong, are they?
