Does the science have to be real science or can it involve science-fictiony science—like faster-than-light travels or time travel?

This would be a great theme to add a “no pop culture” rule to.

Quick check-in…I know celebrity likenesses are banned in mockup images, but is this acceptable? Just want to make sure the reference is understood…

I would say to take it off; It takes away from “voting for a t-shirt, not an internet image”
I guess the idea is, if they aren’t going to get the reference without the photo, will someone get the reference if the shirt is just being worn?


I would say real science, but you can infuse pop-culture if you would like. But the main theme of the design should be focused around real science.

For example, “Dr. Horrible’s Chemistry Set” or something like that. (that’s an obscure reference and would prefer to not use the actual name, but you get the idea) :joy:

Will do. Thanks!
