the protrusions on the buildings look like they are cloud cannons XD

I also think that if you look at this from a horizontal perspective it looks like the space invaders' version of the LHC

At first glance I thought this was a terrible design and just an excuse to put a video game character on a shirt. Now that I look at it more closely though it's actually pretty cool.

That's pretty slick. And since that good old 4bit game is what my husband pulled up to play promptly after hooking a laptop up to our tv....that's an insta gift.

I really like the optical effect and the whole DFA vibe. Plus I was a ginormous Space Invaders fan when I was a kid.

I like this alot. It has both a retro (cut my teeth on SI) and a modern look, but what really impresses me is the nearly seamless interweaving of so many different elements. It looks like building - no - it's a futuristic computer screen. It's got meteors - no those are eyes! It's a mask - no, it's the sky. Brilliant!

First thing I thought was Tron for some reason. Then Space Invaders. Pumped to see the movie on Friday!

Seeing it myself at midnight Thursday at the local IMAX screen. Been waiting for this one all year. Actually, longer.

This is probably the best shirt I've seen that uses only three colors (including white).

I agree. Reminds me of the arrow on the Fedex logo. Once you see it, you can't unsee it. O_O

When I saw it I immediately thought of Contra and the tunnel levels.

strange coincidence that I was just now reading a book that opens with this passage:

"Toward the end of the nineteenth century, Lord Kelvin, one of the best known and most respected physicists at that time, commented that “only two small clouds” remained on the horizon of knowledge in physics. In other words, there were, in Kelvin’s view, only two sources of confusion in our otherwise complete understanding of material reality—the results of the Michelson-Morley experiment, which failed to detect the existence of a hypothetical substance called the ether, and the inability of electromagnetic theory to predict the distribution of radiant energy at different frequencies emitted by an idealized “radiator” called the black body. These problems seemed so “small” that some established physicists were encouraging those contemplating graduate study in physics to select other fields of scientific study where there was better opportunity to make original contributions to scientific knowledge. What Lord Kelvin could not have anticipated was that efforts to resolve these two anomalies would lead to relativity theory and quantum theory, or to what came to be called the “new” physics.

What is most intriguing about Kelvin’s metaphor for our purposes is that it is visual. We “see,” it implies, physical reality through physical theory, and the character of that which is seen is analogous to a physical horizon which is uniformly bright and clear. Obstacles to this seeing, the “two clouds,” are likened to visual impediments which will disappear when better theory allows us to see through, or beyond, them to the luminous essence which explains and eliminates them."

It's rare to see negative space as the focus of a shirt. Clever stuff, TYH. ^__^

Wow, this is fantastic. I had to get two, one for my boyfriend and one for my brother.

Almost got one for me too, but that would have been a little too much I think. : )

Great design!

Space invaders has been done to death, but somehow you made it new again. I'm not big on pop culture tees, but when they're fresh/done well it's a different story.

Also, I think I actually achieved vertigo when I first looked at this.
