Re: Let's all go to the laboratory!
I like your work, I like the design. I'm torn because it seems out of theme, but the shirt is sublime. Not sure what to vote on this yet, so I guess I'll wait until Wednesday to see what it's up against. I would like one but it just doesn't exactly fit the theme for me.
Now 100% chock full of little wind-up robots!

Honestly, I hate when something doesn't get rejected that should be (to the point that I stopped coming here for a while), but I feel that this shirt is definitely on-theme because nowhere in the rules is it said that the design must explicitly adhere to all elements of a pre-1960 movie/poster. To me it sounds like the design must simply elude to it. Again, I feel that the only thing that makes this appear as though it doesn't fit in the pre-1960 category is the hair; one minor element of a design should not be enough to place it off-topic. Many of the other designs in this derby (which are also on topic) are referencing the pre-1960's but do so in a modern style.
This design still expresses the fundamental character of pre-1960's even if a few of the elements may be considered contemporary.
