Shirt.Woot Spotlight: tgentry

Oh, well what do we have here? A Woot Plus event all about our in-house designer, tgentry, huh? Well, WHAT A SURPRISE. And why? Just because he's one of the most prolific and talented designers that we've ever printed? Ugh. The favoritism around here is INSUFFERABLE!

Yes please! A backpack, satchel or hoodie would great. After all, some of us carry our burdens/ encumbrances in different places.

Nanonauts is one of my all the time favorites!

Amazing Tgentry selection!

I am near certain Sun Wukong was the first thing I ever bought from woot. I am loving the remix.. wish it was on a zip-up hoodie with the writing on the front and the image on the back... Might have to grab the nanonaut one!

Monkey Play was my first Woot purchase. In long sleeves? Yes, please!

I really wish the tote bags were bigger. The "Overencumbered" tote is calling me, but I know I would never use it since it is so small.

The original is better! The remix makes me feel like I switched my color tv for a black & white one. If you like shades of gray, then go for it. It still is a great design.

Excellent choice for a tgentry artist spotlight, tgentry.

Hm... Do I want the Nanonauts hoodie even though I already have the tee in AA and Anvil, and the lightweight hoodie?

(The answer is yes. Always yes.)

Congrats on the spotlight! Well-deserved

1985 B.C. was my very first woot purchase and got me hooked on t-shirts. I'm with Kevin, I regretted not buying Crazy Straw when it printed so I'll be sure to pick one up now! Great side sale, Travis!

The "Over-Encumbered" tote amuses me, but I'm going to wait until I can test out the totes I ordered in the random event last week before I buy another.

The design of the Devil is in the Details hoodie is also pretty awesome.

My gf is wearing 1985BC today, as she often does. Brilliant shirt. I'll be in for one of those remixed monkey kings!

About time for this side sale!

Suburban Blitzkrieg is still an all-time fave, but so many of these tees are so good.

I'm disappointed the Pander Tree isn't included in this sale. It's one of the first woots I ever bought, before I realized how small a women's small was.

Of course, with a name like "Me-Too Birds Flee a Pander Tree", blatantly admitting that trees, lightning and birds were the way to win a derby (and proceeding to do so), I can understand why woot wouldn't include it.

Travis, you really were some sort of leading light during the shirt.woot renaissance. Seeing this selection I was really struck with the great range of concepts and styles you successfully shirtified.

Does anyone have a photo of themselves (or anyone else) actually wearing one of the pullover hoodies? I'm trying to determine exactly how bulky it is.

Now I'm really liking the original more than the remix... Give me the original on AA!

Nanonauts is one of my favorite designs! I also really like Sun Wukong, but I think it would be more flattering with some other neckline for a ladies' shirt, like a v-neck or boatneck.

Count me as one of those who own and love the 1985BC shirt!
Whenever I hear or see 1985 I can't help but to think of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1c5pgo6zU10

Same song with crazy video mix:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAeWPUuV6L4

My entire department in the office here is arguing about the 1985 B.C. shirt. We can't agree on what the string of symbols means from the Flux Capacitor up to the pyramid. Any ideas?

tgentry wrote:Hey everyone, sorry to leave you hanging on those hieroglyphs.

I got a lot of the symbols I used from here. The symbol above the radiation symbol apparently means "no". I used two 8's to represent 88, although as someone mentioned I could have used a more accurate way of showing 88. I figured having two recognizable 8's might be easy to spot.

The two blossoming reeds by themselves are ambiguous and could represent any number of things. Maybe Marty fell in love, or someone fell in love with Marty? Maybe it involves the setup they used to get back. I kind of wanted actual Egyptian symbols that might get lost in translation or not readily apparent what they might symbolize in terms of the story.

On the next line I made up the lightning symbol and combined it with "was coming" from the above link. Then the rest should be self explanatory.

Originally I wanted to have the Sphinx being the thing hit by lightning, with the lightning being what damaged the nose, and the two time travelers using that info to get back home (like the clock in BTTF). But I found it pretty impossible to get that information imparted in the design in a simple way. Plus Doc and Marty would have no way of knowing when the lightning might have struck, so I just scrapped it.

Hope this helps.

blerg... the sun wukong graphic being placed on the front of the hoodie is a deal-breaker; I will probably be in for the tee, though!
