I sincerely love the artwork though!



For the record, I don't really like bacon either (gasp!). I was just ribbing america, aka bacontopia :P

in america, bacon is made from pork belly, not ribs.

Here's what I put together for this week. although this design will be buried by the onslaught of pop culture designs I hope it can get some love, right?

Ooookay - opinion time! Faces or no faces? (as an aside, we're still deciding on the background color, so the red is not necessarily finalized.





and you can look here if you want a vote on shirt color too :P

Lose the distressing, it doesn't work here. Also, maybe brighten up the cherries some. I'm thinking maraschino red. It's not evident at first glance that the "dropper" came from the middle stem, not sure how to fix that unless you rewind the action some to be closer to the dastardly act.

Faces/olive. But I'm not sure I get it. She cooks carrots and peas in the same pot?

It's a play on the saying "They go together like peas and carrots." Turnips are not invited to the butter jacuzzi.

How is it not obvious that the dropper isn't from the middle stem? I thought that was clear at first glance and I love the color of the cherries and the background. The only thing that kinda bothered me was the jagged leaves because to my knowledge, cherry leaves have "straight/flat" edges for the most part... but that's just my 2 cents.

Seconded. At least choke cherries do, and I'm pretty sure regular ones do too.

cherries on the stem wouldn't be the bright maraschino color your requesting. wanted to go fo a more true color. but thanks for the feedback.

1.) Yeah, after having posted that, I decided to look it up because I was second guessing myself and you're right, they can be jagged so I apologize for that comment as far as being wrong, but for some reason I think flat/straight edges would look better in my opinion.. but it really doesn't matter, the overall design is still very well done and quite funny too. I definately LOL'd when I first saw it.

2.) You have cherries growing in your backyard?! I'm jealous! Haha.

Another thing that probably doesn't matter but just a thought to go with the theme of this derby, maybe you could add a third leaf, jagged of course! ;) Regardless of what you decide on as your final design, you're getting my vote!

Are those supposed to be valence electrons around each of the molecules?

XD 2 cherries, two pears, a peach, 6 tomatoes, 4 peppers, peas, green beans, tons of blueberries, 2 blackberries and a raspberry. :D And some lettuce.

We love plants!

I was reading this and suddenly realized that I have had an idea/sketch that is perfect for this derby lying around. However, I have no photoshop tools or gimp to do this with. (My computer recently underwent a massive overhaul.) Is there a professional designer or some one with the tools who'd be willing to take the idea all the way?

Just asking. If not, no biggie. Thanks for reading.

Here's what I've done so far... having trouble deciding which shirt color, if anyone likes it and has an opinion! (I also was considering baby blue and kelly green). Thanks!

I think that the green works best, likely because it almost evokes a picnic feel with the red and green contrast.

in most molecular kits (that I've seen), oxygen is represented by the color red... which may assist in showing their frustration (red = anger / passion) of wanting to breathe. carbon is black, but eh. (:

Correct me if I'm wrong (because I tend to be wrong a lot, lol) but I believe each molecule is supposed to have 8 collectively in order to be stable which means you have extra valence electrons in your oxygen atoms. Other than that, I think it might look better on a silver background and then use slate lettering,.. but maybe I'm just saying that because I want lighter shirts because I have too many black and slate shirts. :P

I noticed that too, I just wanted to play with colors that could evoke "air" (as in breathing). Here is a version with your suggestions, any more thoughts?



I changed Carbon's electrons, so now it doesn't look like it has 8 instead of 4 in the outer shell. Maybe that's why Unsenuchiha asked about the electrons.

Maybe you could have the carbon atom saying, "But we share a bond!" or something along those lines!

YAY I might be able to do something for this derby. Finally! I was getting tired of work getting in the way of derbying. The 2 places only thing is a bit weird. It's nice that they are splitting 3rd's winnings with 1st and 2nd.

Downtime? Does that mean that the site won't even be up that Sunday?

I doubt it will be down all of Sunday, but probably enough that sales won't be good.
