it's ok goatcane. Whether you meant to be sacrilegious or not, I still liked it.

How about "Stories can blur the lines of reality."
Still, I'd vote for it because the shirt doesn't have the title on it. The illusion is baffling. I clicked on the link to wiki and then back to your shirt and actually followed the horizontal lines with my finger. It's like an Escher.



dude, it's just a title! it's not a big deal

I am a bit surprised to see that no one recognized the sarcasm in your post. For believing that you got trolled, they have all been trolled.

Rage on, cannibal troll.

Ahah! That's where it's from!

Memes and pop culture references are popular on woot (whether or not everyone likes them), so it was a smart move on the artist's part.

Re: Reading Rocket Ship



Loved the sketch in the pre-derby thread but count me in with others who would have preferred it on navy. I agree with spanchenblow that design seems to boxy on the silver.

I had never intended to provide a definitive list of solutions. As has already been proposed.


Oh no! I didn't mean to be a party-pooper and spoil the interpretation for others! I'm just super curious, and a tad OCD. (clearly)

I really didn't mean to goad you into revealing answers, but was intending to ask other wooters to share ideas on their interpretations. There are definitely many options for a lot of the images, which is one of my favorite parts of the design. However, some of them were stumping me, and as I said, I'm way curious.

Thank you for replying, though, and letting me/us know if we guessed some correctly!

For example, while I was thinking of The Little Prince when I drew a rose under the glass, it's exciting to think that it would symbolize Beauty and the Beast to you.



Initially I thought it was TLP, but someone suggested BATB. I've not read the original BATB, so wasn't sure if the rose was under glass (as depicted in the Disney movie). Either way, I like the image.

Of course! I can't believe I missed that! I like that it fits for both, though.

Re: too much reading will damage your vision



Love the concept and I too like it much better than some of the fogged shirts.

As crazy as it sounds, my first thought was "I wonder if this would be slenderizing". I'm sure that isn't a word, but I shur thunk it.

What a great idea. It reminded me of how house cats will sit on a book you are reading to let you know that it is time to pay attention to The Cat.

I do most all my work directly on the computer nowadays, it helps speed the process. I flip flop between Illustrator and Photoshop but I do use a Wacom Intuos pad in both programs especially since Illustrator CS4 and beyond employ some brush functions similar to Photoshop and make freehand drawing much easier directly into that program. I used to do things on paper, scan them in then redraw them in vector or raster, but have since moved away from that (though I still like sketching in pencil when I get the chance). This piece was done in Illustrator, mainly with the mouse.

Thanks for all the support on this one guys, I had another more complex piece planned but couldn't finish it in time. Also for those with reservations about the color, I understand, there's colors I gravitate towards or away from but I also try to give all colors a fair shake and hopefully you will too. At least it's not heather or beige For the colors used on this piece sky blue seemed the most appropiate and looked the best (to my eye) so there you go :S Thanks again and on to the next derby!

Ahh, now I see The Tell-Tale Heart, just south of the strawberry. It's really hiding in there (appropriately). The eruption is maybe a reference to The Twenty-One Balloons or Journey to the Center of the Earth. I recognize the moon, but I can't put a title to it. . . .

Bad ideas free; brilliant ideas by derangement.
