Some detail:

Early sabertooth premonitions recorded in cave art were accurate, in what would become a modern day amusement/annoyance.

Not for everyone I’m sure, but the idea that amused me the most in a derby where the ideas weren’t flowing.
For some reason for the past several derbies, I kept getting offline suggestions to use a sabertooth, so then this popped in my head.

Big props to walmazan for sharing his photoshop brush, which I used at the end to give a little highlighting - walmazan, you are awesome (both in general and for generously sharing!)!:smiley:

Judging by the size of that guy’s head, I’d say half of my family must be Olmecs.

I wonder how those knobs work…

Sogj, I’m flipping out over your colors here. Love them!


I thought about it, but I’m glad i didn’t do it, you did it greatly. Amazing Illustration

This would be great fun to wear, Walmazan. Very best of luck that this prints!

Oh sweet - brilliant remix.

Take that Barney’s great-great-great-etc-grandfather! :slight_smile:

I know what you’re thinking, and no, Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik was not the inventor of the Rubik’s cube. Of course, we would’ve had evidence of this if Bob up there hadn’t eaten it back in 1B.C.

What would history be like if Picasso had been born 2.5 million years ago?? Good question.

Wireless too.

From you, spiritgreen?!?! THANKS!!!
