Oh Ramy, you take heat around here for breathing. Doesn't mean it's warranted. Or logical. Or rational. Anyway, I saw the same thing as aerc712: I grew up in a state with a bottle deposit and the information about how much the deposit was, in which state, is always located next to a recycle sign. Well, at least by the time I started drinking soda from cans/bottles, there was a recycle sign. In fact, I am currently drinking soda from a can and there's a recycle sign on it.


Anyway, back to my original thought about the design:
This captures the feeling of alienation, of feeling trapped in a place where one doesn't belong, powerless to escape. One of the major theoretical frameworks in psychology says that there are three basic psychological needs (for humans, not cans!): autonomy, the ability to influence what happens in one's life and have those events be related to one's sense of self; competence, a feeling of being good or useful at what one does; and relatedness, the sense of being part of connected to or interacting with others.

Some of the greatest human despair, IMHO, arises when all three of these basic psychological needs are denied. Some of my very favorite shirts capture the feeling of desiring relatedness, wanting to be part of something, but not being able to control the reaction of others (jasnecko's Odd Bear Out, tjost's Just a Little Paint). This design captures that sense of alienation and despair that results from being alone, having one's purpose thwarted through no action of one's own, and being unable to do anything about it. I love the emotion and story captured in a fairly simple narrative frame.

Aside from the psychological analysis of a soda can... I've had a lot of moments over the past year when I've felt like that can. I identify with its despair. A design that can make a human identify with a soda can is touching upon something fundamental to the human experience, IMHO.

One more...

I had to go back and look through past derbies to see how different the logo had to be in order to avoid rejection.

Hopefully with the balanced upside-down "V" (instead of off-center and shortened), the saturn ring and the recycle symbol, that should be enough.

Re: Making Yarn



Ok, now I feel slow. I won't admit how long I looked at this before I understood that the cat was 'recycling' the sweater into a ball of yarn.

It's Friday.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

This detailed image took me hours to draw all the individual little shapes that make up the whole image. I'm still a beginner at this and I struggled trying to make a displayable image for this design that truly showed off the amount of detail and effort I put into it. (It also doesn't help when Photoshop crashes half way through!) Please, if you have any constructive criticism or advice, let me know!

It's recognizable, but not exactly the same. Wonder if it'll be rejected or not. :/

I guess the first one was too close. Fortunately, I'd already prepped a back-up, just in case. Now it's a stylized star, and I can't find anything like it from that universe...
