Actually, this was submitted on 1 previous derby but the category did not fit the drawing so I withdrew it. This is like a science project gone wrong, those geneticists; ya just never know what they can come up with.

Re: Curiosity Kills V2



I am with everyone who is disappointed that this one isn't doing better. I think it is a fantastic design, and it is awful that it isn't AT LEAST fogging. (Should print too!!)

Re: Made of carbon



Aside from the debate as to whether this is on theme or not, I can't get behind this shirt. It appears to me to be constructed from various stock vectors and brushes, which means it's less art, and more compilation. Doesn't really float my boat.

You mean his data "supported" his theory, right? Nothing can be proven. ;)



"he could prove that he had actually done the measurements that supported his hypothesis." See how that works there? ;^)

I actually like this version much better. I couldn't tell from the thumbnail, but now that I see the close up I can see that he's actually holding the flower in a pipette. Very nice touch, those little details make it.

I've never thought of that phrase in a dirty way until you brought it up... and now I'm probably going to read it like that from now on. Thanks a lot. :P

Re: The Price of Progress



I'll add my vote to help out - this certainly deserves a shot.
One niggling thing is bothering me, tho. Is that photo clipart moon hiding there in the corner? WHY? The rest is so well done, the moon just seems out of place, and kinda cheapens it for me.
Nevertheless - really terrific idea and (mostly) composition.

Re: Results not Replicable



Paige, that last image on your shirt cracks me up! I have a cat who hates to be touched because she hurt her back. One time My friend Lewis had to catsit....he didn't know much about cats, when she hid in the basement he wanted to get her out. Anyway, he put on oven mitts to try to pick her up...this is a big huge tough guy, wearing oven mitts trying to catch a cat....well anyway , it traumatized him for life.There he was, running up the stairs wearing oven mitts carrying my poor cat as far away from his face as possible, as fast as he could! (He would get this shirt immediately!!)

(Good One!)

Plus there is generally more of your more popular (better selling) artists in the fog, and I'm sure Woot doesn't upset their better performing "talent".

Lol! Our cousins have a cat named Toby, who routinely mauls anyone and everyone. Every time I hear anyonen speak of him, I picture the 'cat next door' from Peanuts - usually just a blur of motion, random claws, stars, exclamation points... I wanted to do something like that, but just couldn't pull it together.

You're kidding, rite? I may not be great at discerning these things, but I certainly thought some of your stuff (Sullen) was hand-done and scanned. Which is not a bad thing by any stretch.
By contrast, I can do a nice sketchy style on paper, but can't get it to translate to digital very well. I mess with Threshold, etc., but my lines still look weeny.

To actually try to publish it and make money is not a crime, nor even particulary unethical. However, it is derivative, lazy, and a crying shame for anyone with talent, to waste it so. Makes me sad.

Hey, take a look at my crappy cat - not a prayer of placing anywhere in the top 20! I agree on the memes and stuff, but be a tetch more selective in your 'rant'. Sometimes, the 'cat' is right, sometimes trite and boring. Like a rabbit. Or a penguin. Or a dinosaur. Not every sub will be brilliant. Not every print will be brilliant. I live to hope some of the really awe.some also-rans will HM, EC, print elsewhere...

A very commendable effort to stick to the theme. Unfortunately, I really can't get behind such a box design on a shirt.

Other than that I find the concept fantastic.

Re: Made of carbon



I like this shirt a lot. Very aesthetically pleasing for one, and I dig the color scheme. I can see where people are coming from saying that it is "not on theme", but I get it-- butterflies and plants (and all living things) are made of carbon. Artistic and subtle, I love it.

mindputtee wrote:Haha I know, I'm actually a chem major, but the lines are representative of the energy levels the electrons can exist at, it might be hard to see, but there is a small s orbital w/ 2 electrons, then a larger px orbital with two as well and then a py and pz orbital with 1 electron each, as in the ground state configuration of carbon. This modeling of an atom is used because while it might not be as technically accurate it is easier to describe bonding from this point of view.



I am inspired to vote for this shirt by your dedication to chemistry. I may not be a chem major as well, but I am the crazy cousin from engineering.

Also, this shirt is very good. I hope it prints, and that all the equations turn out all right (if anything, that is my only reservation with this shirt).
