That sounds like a great idea!  We could put the pictures of the robots
on the front, and still have the picture we planned to have on the back.
I could try to convert the pictures to a black and white threshold, and
it probably would work ok and would not cost any more.  I think the T-Shirt
place wanted vector graphics, not quartertone, so I'd want to doctor them a
little.

Here's the robots that completed the contest:
	Eric Yundt's Yatu
	Roger Arrick's Dbot
	Roger Arrick's 1 bit
	Clay Timmon's One Week Wonder
	John Wadley's Low Rider

By the way, the last shirt was done at 600dpi!  At about 12" x 12"
that was a lot of dots!



Would look something like this?:

Or look something like this?:
    ______________         ________________
   /              \_______/                \
  /                                         \

/______/|   D P R G                  |\_______\
        |   _______        _______   |
        |  |       |      |       |  |
        |  |       |      |       |  |
        |  |_______|______|_______|  |
        |          |      |          |
        |          |      |          |
        |   _______|______|_______   |
        |  |       |      |       |  |
        |  |       |      |       |  |
        |  |_______|      |_______|  |
        |                            |
        |                            |
        |                            |
        |                            |
        |____________________________|

I'm not sure how well it would turn out.  Another suggestion
might be to just list the Contest Winner's names and their
Robot's names somewhere on the shirt.
