Re: Carbon: Cola



If Carbon was a drink, I imagine it'd be the fizzy drink of life.

Re: Tin: Snapple Pie



I'll admit, I'm not very good at baking and this tastes slightly better than my regular Apple Pie.

Re: Gold : The Midas Touch



The story of King Midas and his golden touch. The design shows that the oak twig and stones were one of the first things Midas touched to turn to gold. Then the realization that his beloved daughter and roses would also turn to gold upon his touch. The rivers where the 'curse' was removed and the subsequent golden sand and golden nuggets are also represented. A variety of other golden items are also included.

Thank you for your vote.

Re: Lead: The Pipe Dream



Alchemists dream of turning lead into gold. Why wouldn't lead aspire the same thing?

Re: Seaborgium: Resistance is Futile



Seaborgium.

Okay, so it's not as popular as Gold. It's not as useful as Aluminum. It's not as expensive as Latinum. It's not as important as Uranium.

Okay, so isotopes of seaborgium have short half-lives of less than a second. And, at present, Seaborgium has no practical uses. None whatsoever.

Nevertheless, scientists speculate that Seaborgium will be that crucial element which will transmogrify all of Earth's ocean life into a dangerous cyborg collective that will attempt to rule all the known universes.

This is why Wal-Mart has stopped selling Seaborgium in its stores--though it still sells it online at www.walmart.com.



Here's a better look:

Re: Sulfur: Three States, Three Colors



Sulfur is a bright yellow crystal in its solid state, blood red as a liquid, and emits a blue flame when burned. Here I've represented all three states on top of the old alchemy symbol for sulfur.

The flame is not a gradient, but a halftone, and here is a detail pic to quell any concerns:


Comments welcome, as always!

Re: Helium : For those that can't jump.




A modified frisbee dog from the leap year derby. This one is dedicated to a few of my customers who've mentioned in the past that they wished that their dogs were 'frisbee dogs'...but that 'their dogs can't jump'. Maybe all they really need is a little helium boost.

Re: Radium: the Watch of Ra



as an added bonus if you lay down outside wearing this shirt with your head pointing due north and place the tip of a pencil or straw (whatever you have handy) on the grey dot on Ra's cheek, the design works as a sundial. never worry about leaving your watch at home again!

Re: Gold: From lead to...



Gold's archaic alchemical and philosophical associations. As one of the planetary metals, Au was linked to the sun, Apollo, crowns, the lion (due to its own golden crown), and the human head.

Also known as an alchemist's dreamboat.

Re: Seaborgium: Failed Experiment 106



Great work guys! I really like the design of the cyborg elements, especially the pointy tentacle by his eye. Great color choices too. Seaborgs will take over the world.

Re: Gold: From lead to...



That looks great Mito. Excellent colours and composition.

Your seaborg entry is neat as well. But the squid should be fighting a phoenix.

I'm going to keep saying it until you do it.

Californium is a radioactive rare earth metal named after the state of California and the University of California. Californium is a strong neutron emitter - making it a biological hazard, most unlike its namesake.

Re: Lead: It's what I eat.



It took forever to get my shirt on here and finally after it did, I noticed the other Peanut butter/ lead refrences and became dissappointed. I thought I was being clever. Oh well. Good Luck to everyone.

Nice, I like it. Wasn't element 106 the one where the young chemist published fictional results due to its innate instability? Is that what the title refers to?

Re: Barium: If They're Dead



It's a great play on the words but without the title, the element has nothing to do with the shirt.
