Keep improving! :-)



Have to agree with you. The pump is too flat for one, plus it would help the overall point to maybe include both the total sale and total gallons. I'll tinker with it but may not have chance to re-post it (ugh...want more time!!). Thanks for the pointers!

Plasma ball


A plasma lamp has the look of colored light beams extending from the center ball to the outside glass. When you put your hand near it, a brighter beam seems to connect your hand to the center. This phenomenon tends to put people in a trance when stared at for a prolonged amount of time. It also has the ability to burn through Play-do when placed on the outer surface, a power many would like to use on enemies' foreheads. Do not operate this object near laptop computers, as it has the capacity to interfere with the touchpad. This has been known to make laptop computers add incomprehensible words into emails and change words in illegally downloaded music. Wearing of this shirt would not have the same effect.



Nobody noticed that my entry description here got a little weird... :0(

So, not much in the way of an explanation, but the hamster is generating the energy for his Idea. In a way this is me thinking of the shirt design. I guess the analogy would be better expressed if The hamster WAS the lightbulb above him.

what?
beams don't normally shoot from your bellybutton?

Re: The long way around



In step F, given the position of the water, I would expect the wheel to turn clockwise rather than ccw as you've indicated. Also, I'm not sure how the turning wheel would turn on the electric fan. However, the idea is great and the artwork is excellent. I suggest you fix the direction of the arrow on step F (or reposition the spilling water appropriately) and remove the rectangle around the design (boxes usually aren't appreciated) and resubmit. Nice job though!

Great idea and use of color. But my favorite part is the look on the robot's face. Priceless. I voted and will definitely buy if this makes it. Great job.

The water wheel is attached to a belt that that is attached to the fan thereby making the fan spin good call on the water though.

Uh...I hate to break it to you but that "Greek guy" your referring to is probably Archimedes and what he actually said was "Give me a place to stand and with a lever I will move the whole world." Cool idea anyway though.

Picky, picky. No seriously, thanks for the pointers -- that's why I'm an artist, not an engineer. I debated about the border, so I'm resubbing with water wheel fixed and border removed. Thanks!

Re: The long way around (resub)



Thumbs up.

Now you should remove the first version. Click the red X - you should see it on the top right above your design.

Even so, I don't think "energy" is very clear here.

Also, the brown in the background will print awful. but hey, why would anyone bother thinking about whether a shirt will look good in real life before voting? Keep doin' what you're doin'... hope you love your horribly printed crapshoot... you voted!
