Animals are a terrific reason to give a darn about the environment. My design! I hope it is enjoyable to a few of you.

Great idea! Thank you - I will prepare it as a backup plan :-)

No, it's on the left side of the shirt. Right side from the perspective of the viewer, left side from the perspective of the shirt.

I asked Narfcake this a while back, and he said he couldn't recall a shirt with a design element solely on the right side of the shirt. As I flip through old shirts, I observe that off-center designs are much more likely to be placed solely on the left side of the shirt, or (I'm not quite sure how to explain this) have their major design element on the left side and curve towards the right. I've never studied graphic design, although I've spent quite a few years studying how the brain processes visual images (well, mostly what happens when that process is interrupted), and I was curious about how visual art conceptualizes sidedness (or side dominance). As anyone who has googled Ramy knows, he's done some vision research, and I thought that he might have an interesting perspective on the tendency of graphic design to prefer right-sidedness-from-the-perspective-of-the-viewer because of the confluence of his academic background and artistic work.

I believe it has something to do with how the eye naturally reads from left to right (at least in this country). If the swirlies were on the other side your eye would stop once it hit the swirlies, rather than continuing down and going back to were it started. Keeps your eye traveling in a circular path and looking at the design.

Thanks so much! I went through several color versions until I finally bit the bullet and went yellow shirt. I am likely killing my votes but I think it makes it pop so much more than the other colors.

Midge's "eats, shoots, and leaves" is a right sided graphic.

Oooh, great memory, odysseyroc! Thanks for reminding of Midge's design; it's an awesome design, very powerful and compelling image on its own, with an excellent joke behind it. I'm embarrassed that I forgot about it. (In my defense, two days after the design printed, someone tried to kill me with a gun. There's a lot that I don't recall from May and June of last year, and I was pretty skittish around guns, even images of guns, for a long time. It's a great design and I'm glad to be reminded of it now that I can appreciate it without being short-circuited by unpleasant memories.)

I get a difference emotional feeling from Midge's design than I do from left-sided images, and I find it interesting that an image based off a word pun is placed off-center-right, which results in it being processed by visual cortexes that show an advantage to language-based visual processing. Very, very interesting...

Thank you again, Odyssey!

But for the people looking at it the design is on the right.

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.

I love this art! I just wish there were some way to make the lines stand out more against the black background.

True, but most shirts are designed for the lookers, not the wearer. Otherwise all designs would print upside-down for the wearer to enjoy.
