"Science Is Culture." The theme says it all. I sought to create a simple graphic depicting the two biggest cultural debates relating to science in recent memory.


This is cute, however threadless has already printed a shirt about Pluto. To improve: the planets are well drawn but the couch, and the newspaper should be cleaner and neater. Also, maybe speech bubbles instead of just lines?

Thanks for the nice comments. I know there was Pluto shirt already printed, but this design isn't all about Pluto. It's just a piece of the overall theme, so the context is a whole lot different than the other Pluto shirt.

Oh, and this was done from scratch in CorelDraw, just in case anyone cared.


I think this is pretty funny, man! Something about the font dsn't sit right with me, though. I'm wondering how clear it will read on a printed shirt - maybe bolden the words?

I think it's very good, though. $5, of course.



this is wonderful! :oD


Hee hee!
But I think Pluto would be purple, don't you?

To answer some questions about Pluto:

In every picture I've seen of Pluto, its color is a sort of bluish-gray. Hence, the color in the design.

Also, referring to idunno's question ("why does the moon have a pluto hat on?"), Pluto is basically just a big slab of rock floating around in space, just like the moon. Their surfaces are actually pretty similar. That's why I put the hat, just to clear up any doubt.

Thanks for all the comments!


For some reason--maybe it's the hat--this made me think of the whole Britney Spears/Kevin Federline thing. Bizarre.

Cute concept, though!

I like it.

Definitely not stolen. I don't roll like that. I'm not aware of any comic that used this idea, so if something similar is already in existance then it's a complete coincidence.

Normally, I wouldn't be so defensive, but with people like candance20 submitting forgeries all over the place lately, people's suspicions might be up.

That said, thanks for all the comments! I'm glad you find it humorous.
