As the preview shows the shirt is printed in boyh sides.
Reminds me of Sleepy Hollow.
Maybe put the explanatory caption on the shirt itself? Or does that ruin the joke?
This is one of the greatest ideas ever. I hope it prints.
loooooooooool and they get see u puke in their face too :P
I remember learning that trick in elementary school art class. AWESOME! I like it better without the caption.
I included de caption to explain to the voters how it works.
I'm keeping to the original Thaumatrope design where mistery is solved after spining, I think this is the best.
Thanks for all the comments!!
clever use of a classic
italic textYou cant make it work, unless someone is staring at you through a narrow slit.italic text
lol, so give your peeping tom something interesting to look at! i love this, it was always my favorite thing on trips to the museum. $5
A concept. Thank God. :)
Dear SimonSays, I just googled Mr. Sagmeister and I couldn`t find any work of him related to the Thaumatrope, so please, if you have a link post it so I can take a look at what you talking about.
If I'm stealing for someone is from Peter Roget, Dr. John Ayrton of Paris, or Dr. Fitton of London, the three persons credited (depending of the source) for the invention of the Thaumatrope in 1825. But I don't think that they have made any shirts.
Thanks for all the comments!
I would totally get the reference without the text. Nice work.
There was another idea like this
but of a person running
it had animation to show it working :D
Akgirl89, yo are right, in the original Thaumatrope the cage is up side down and the reason is that the card will spin vertically, and you need to have the cage tihis way to complete the ilusion.
As I designed the shirt, I realised that as wearing it you will sipn horizontally to make it work, so the cage can be in the normal position.
Thanks for all the comments!!
i love it, ignore simonsaysdesign13, who is simply jealous. 5!
My class mate did this concept for one of his final year project about T-shirt designs about 3 years ago.
awesome idea. some text maybe needed to explain the concept on the shirt though. 5!
This is freaking fabulous. I hope it gets printed. All of my film history students would get it.
I also like how you employed the most often used example for making thaumatropes because it makes it so much more classic.
i like the concept, but it could be mistaken from the front for a creative recreation logo.
This is funny, I get it! (and I would love to see people try to get it to work when they wear it, haha)
I think it looks fine without a caption, it looks good as it. If anything, though, just include the caption on the "About the shirt" section if it wins, so when people are looking to buy it, they understand what it is.
This gets a 5 from me :D
Cleverest I've seen at threadless. And it's not cute!!!! (I was beginning to think love was the ONLY answer). Thanks!
