Nice! I like it alot, but I liked the one that said extra tasty..
either way is a very clever idea.

Im sad because of all the shirts ive made for extra tasty... none of them will be able to compete with such a good idea, but this basic idea has been done before, thats the only thing that can hurt you... good luck

YES ! ! !
a -- > 5 < -- . . . .and . . . $$$ BUY $$$

The concept was worth all the
work you put into this design.
Great work, _Wheels03.

this could become my favorite shirt to wear. I don't love the color of the shirt, but the design is tops.

Ava Adore

nicely done

Sassmo

Put it on the back!

Extra points for grouping the tasty elements, rather than just throwing them on willy-nilly.

I also really like the "faded 60's-era science poster" color scheme -- you could even take the saturation down a bit more.

Nice job, and this is just nitpicking, but maybe Al-Alcohol should be replaced with Water?

Because the term is generic and the rest are specific, and Water, as the most common element in any drink, would make a 'better' Hydrogen.

But great job all the same.

commenting on danrule's suggestion about
using Water instead of Alcohol in the # 1 spot :

The theme is not just drinking, but drinking
alcoholic beverages. Water dilutes a drink while
alcohol is the main ingredient of the drinks found
on the Extra Tasty website that the contest is for.

spencekarl

wrong, the theme for the extratasty contest is NOT alcoholic beverages, despite the content of the extratasty.com....the theme for the extratasty contest is quite simply "extra tasty". it's each designer's own interpretation.

wow ddcrandall, you go from a 5 to a 0 because he didn't use the actually letter of the periodic table? seems like a dramatic jump.

This is leaps and bounds beyond every other sub I have seen in matters of creativity. For that, I salute you.

However, I am worried that it would be impossible to read/appreciate without spending entirely too much time spent inches away.

It's been done before, with the actual abbreviations - as aprons and placemats and coffeemugs.

It may've taken time to fill each space and group things - but it's lacking the crartivity i've seen in other extra-tasty subs.

i really like how you assume threadless fans are alcoholics.

zero.

I can't believe someone hasnt pointed this out yet...

but the green series (those two rows) are suppose to be the niche in the blue after elements 54 and 70. They arent a continuation AFTER the blue, they are just the lanthanide and actinides series. Thus, BA should be 55, and SB should be 71, not 79 and 93. That little niche isnt undiscovered elements, 55 and 71, as you portray it. it's a place for the two green rows, but the periodic table would be way too long if it looked like that, so they just put it at the bottom. Sorry for the nitpickiness, but it bothers me that not many people know that.

either way. 5

ajimmykid, just to let you know, I do realiz e that the periodic table I have above doesn't reflect the actual scientific periodic table. I didn't really want to go into specifics of explaining why all the fruits were located in the middle of the table when I could just as easily put them at the end, which I did.

As far as putting Alcohol as the top ingredient and not water, I originally had Water as the first element, but I didn't use it because Wr wasn't as pleasing to the eye as Al was. Sorry for making the shirt appeal to just alcohol, but I figured you don't go to Extra Tasty to find recipes for drinks like chocolate milk, right?

Beer is an element - I knew it!! This is fantastic.

Fakemidnight

fuck everyone who doesn't like this, cause I do.

badnobe

love it.

Way fun, but would definitely work well on the back of the shirt, perhaps with a large, single symbol on the front. Ala Carbon.

Congrats Wheel03 - nice score!
I agree with coxiesara, cause alcohol periodic table already exist on posters. (Like I showed you before in the blogs)
But you managed to transfer this idea to a shirt. Well done^^
