tshirt tuesday


Today is Ada Lovelace Day, in honor of the British mathematician who is often regarded as the first computer programmer. The goal of today is to highlight and celebrate women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and hopefully inspire the a new generation of women to follow in their footsteps. Something we here at Startorialist like to do EVERYDAY. :)

Today’s “T-shirt Tuesday” is brought to you by Rachel Ignotofsky’s designs featuring nine amazing women in science:

Mary Anning - fossil collector and paleontologist 

Patricia Bath - ophthalmologist and inventor

Rachel Carson - marine biologist and conservationist

Marie Curie - physicist and chemist

Rosalind Franklin - chemist and x-ray crystallographer

Jane Goodall - primatologist and anthropologist

Grace Hopper - naval admiral and computer scientist

Hedy Lamarr - film actress and inventor

Valentina Tereshkova - engineer and cosmonaut

All designs are available as prints, most as t-shirts (women, men, kids), some as baby onesies, and a few as throw pillows

Making of a Plethora of Designs

“I don’t know exactly where ideas come from, but when I’m working well ideas just appear. I’ve heard other people say similar things - so it’s one of the ways I know there’s help and guidance out there. It’s just a matter of our figuring out how to receive the ideas or information that are waiting to be heard.”

-Jim Henson


Check out this week’s T-Shirt Tuesday at the RT Store.

The inspiration for this shirt came from a lot of things.

From a love of playing Zelda games and remembering how the original golden cartridge for The Legend of Zelda looked when I put it in my NES.

From the memories I have of playing hours and hours of Mario Bros., Pokemon and Kirby on my old Gameboy during road-trips.

But most of all, this shirt is inspired by Ray, who epitomizes the indoor gamer that prefers the comfortable glow of his gaming screen in his living room over the mystery and chaos of the outside world. Good on ya, mate.
