Herding cats is easy. All you need to do is have a bit of tuna fish and tie it to a string. Cats will follow that anywhere. :-)

As for Koalas, they're usually kind of slow, gentle creatures that you could just as easily pick up and carry with you as herd.

Well, except when you give them Euca-Fizz. Then they're worse than Chihuahuas. :-)

I held the tablet and and asked him "what color?" Then he'd scribble for a second and fold his arms and say "Umm... Blue." (or whatever color). We did a few. We both liked this one best.

Thanks for looking. We hope you like it.



Ha! For a minute there I thought this was a drawing of accelerated particles that had been spun around in a certain donut-shaped particle accelerator. Thanks for the explanation. :-)

I am a rookie here and am just doing this as I learn Photo Shop Elements.



I think perhaps Gambit was suggesting that the color of the shirt should show through the design a bit more (check out my design for an example of this). Your design kind of has a "sheet of ink in a rectangle" feel to it, which might be turning some voters off.

Great color choices, though... very windy. :-)

No, there was that other guy... I think his name was Doug. He would go on and on about his big crank. Then people stopped inviting him to fancy Greek parties. Archimedies was the guy with pruny fingers from sitting in the bath all the time.

I love the concept, but I also just love the design with the use of color and the old worn look. I hope this gets more votes.

I would have voted for this had the logo been larger, and had the green taken up more bars. Green at low level doesn't make sense, even though you're doing it for aesthetic reasons.

You're right it doesn't need to be front and center, but it just doesn't work for me as a polo.

Which is too bad, because the concept is really clever and I really like the idea.

Your skill in creating something that is both beautiful and popular just makes him feel self-conscious about his blatant lack of talent and originality in t-shirt design.

Keep up the good work and don't let Adders bashing get to you. He hides behind his vocabulary, wordy grammar, and poor attempts at wit to confuse or dupe others into thinking he is good at something - Which appers to be being negative and writing crappy blogs and not making popular tshirts.

Heheh... if you drink a lot of coffee then that will get your heart going. Caffeine can mimic the effects of epinephrine on the heart.

And... like... bend space and time... :-)

Beautiful use of colors. I would vote but the ying yang sign just isn't quite doing it for me. :/ Other than that, it's awesome.

Sorry you don't like the yin-yang. It was meant to suggest the energy cycle of heating/cooling that winds up creating wind.


From Wikipedia:

"Wind is the flow of air or other gases that compose an atmosphere (including, but not limited to, the Earth's). It occurs as air is heated by the Sun and thus rises. Cool air then rushes to occupy the area from which the hot air has just moved. It could be loosely classed as a convection current."

I realize that the yin-yang's not everyone's style, but I'm glad you liked at least part of my design. :-)

Re: Fuel Cell



I like the design in conjunction with the theme, but I see it as unwearable because it sticks too closely to the theme, and personally I don't want to walk around with a giant steaming coffee cup on my shirt that represents nothing.

Animals are people too, so in the midst of a climate crisis it only seems fit that they do their part to conserve energy and to stop destroying our planet. Greedy animals.

Yes, yes, yes! I want! GMV! Good colors, concept, and design. Very wearable and is abstract enough to be worn without being questioned.

I am trying to get away from the rectangular border effect. I'll work harder on that - thanks.

Oh no....not at all. I just thought folks might want to verify the 6 colors. But, you're right... The way in which the colors are used together makes it look like more than 6.

Thanks Narkus!

Re: Energy Goddess



I really really love this design. It's so different from what you typically see on here (typical being pirates, aliens, and contorted/cartoonish fluffy animals).

I also really like the take on energy represented— the spiritual energy in everyone rather than physical (caffeine or "green" energy, etc).

Yeah, I seriously want this shirt...vote people vote!!!
