Here comes my submission for the Loves Geeks Challenge. I hope the pun is clear here.
Names of the "Ancient Geeks" (from left to right):
Homer, Aristotle, Socrates, Plato.

ATTENTION-ATTENTION-ATTENTION:

I decided to put on a little CONTEST:

Who ever is the first to guess the name of the guy wearing the shirt on slide 1 by posting a comment (only 1 guess per member) GETS A $25 VOUCHER if it gets printed.
GOOD LUCK!

sorry i'm not sure if i get you right (since i'm german and english isn't my first language). you say that you don't think i'm "bribing" others or buying votes, right?
and by side contest you mean my "guess who"-contest, right?

well, i can just assure you that i'm not trying to bribe others.
my only intention putting on those contests was to get attention for my design and i don't see how that'd influence the outcome...
pls explain it to me in a more understandable way, thx.

Nice, $5!!!

bengineer, don't worry about that comment. Many people do guess the score contests and other contests, and it is perfectly fine. By examining that person's profile (and the comment), it is clear they haven't quite found out how how the site works.

thx everybody, really glad you like it! :)

Voted, guessed and still have my integrity intact! If I won I'd buy something geeky with it! Good luck.

baumer5

nicely done

igo2cairo

Coming back to this the only thing I would change is to drop the question mark in the title. Otherwise, perfection.

I saw this a few times while browsing, nice job a simple and funny concept, nicely done. 5$

Tikimasters

lol this looks like a classic threadless style PRINT! Very clever haha and judging by the amount of comments, my sentiments are felt by many others. Great job dude, hopefully this gets printed on fabric for many to enjoy!

C Kid

Great submission for the comp! 5 all the way! :)

thx everybody! don't get what you mean, foul5town...

Letter_Q

This deserve a comment. Great work.... Too bad I dont know who da fuck is the guy ;D

aksel

sweet!

I like how at first glance, because of the hair (and not noticing whether there was a beard or just a shadow), Homer looks like George Washington's profile. With glasses. These could be any number of geeks who've been set in stone over time. Plato's hair could be a lil more defined as he had a very distinct head hair look from all scribblings I've seen...

nallukka

Pericles also could have his face hair a bit more defined. I'd dare put this on something like pale gray with the blue or even a dark gray if it prints. NOT digging baby blue--it just doesn't do it justice--all washed out.

Thx! @ nalluka: i think in your second post you meant aristotle since pericles isn't even on the shirt :P i tried it on a grey shirt but didn't like it too much. gotta say that you're the first one considering light blue not fitting...

@ALL: Thx so much for all those nice comments, scores & guesses so far :) This is the last day, keep 'em coming!

Maltzmania

interesting!

bcrider

thx ;) hoped it'd score 3.xx but it's ok as it is, think the score is still printable.

Jebs

bengineer

bengineer
bengineer profile pic Artist

thx a lot, wheatus, really appreciate your support :)

Letter_Q

mmmm.... The final score could have been more than 3,00 judging by the number and the quality of comments...

Anyway, this design is still up for printing in my opinion. Good luck.
