Inventions That Never Saw The Light by ZacharyMcLean Inventions That Never Saw The Light by ZacharyMcLean
Here is my submission to the Deviant Art Retro Future T-Shirt Design Contest. I did a little research on what people during the 1960s and around that time thought what the future was going to hold. Everyone mentioned flying cars, people with jetpacks, as well as space travel and housing on other planets. I named my post, Inventions That Never Saw The Light, because I feel like this is pretty much exactly what the contest is all about.

Give me a vote, by clicking "I'd Wear This" if you like my design & leave a comment or critique.

Thanks,
Zachary

Great image, mine should have turned out a little more like this.

You said you did research and I think it really shows. The colour scheme was a great choice too. Where did you get your info from? (I really struggled to find refernce on what people thought about the future back then.)

Sorry I'm a little late saying this, but I would definately wear this.

Thank you, Well.. I mainly went to some websites (don't remember what websites, sorry.) But I got a couple of my ideas off of asking people what they thought the future was going to be like in the 1960s. I also got some ideas from various images, but I guess I did just what my gut feeling was. Most of the choices I made were actually pretty decent I think, like the color choice, but I really wish I had commented on more people's designs, just so I could have got into the semi-finals.

Anyways, no worries, I really appreciate the comment, and vote for me in the Cute Monsters contest, once I get it up, and if you like my design! Thanks again.

hm, I like it, just find the car in front of the cliffs a little confusing, I had to see closely to understand that it's flying. I would vote it, if I wasn't late

Yeah, Thanks. I thought that it was a more interesting way to put their logo on the shirt, instead of just having it there. If you know what I mean.
