Retrovirus ::remake:: by Velica Retrovirus ::remake:: by Velica
This is a remake of a previous drawing ([link])

Given the growing popularity of this drawing (type "retrovirus" in google images and this will be the only non-scientific image popping up in the first few dozens of hits) and also as a t-shirt ([link]) I have decided to revamp it.

1. design was made simpler, with less lines and colours
2. the virus is now an actual retrovirus and not a bacteriophage (let's be precise about our science, gentlemen)

Open to criticism :)


Now under scrutiny @ Threadless: [link]

Why isn't this one avaiable as a T-Shirt ?

Ah! This biologically more correct version was not as popular as the original so it never made it into t-shirt territory.

Fabulous! You made my day. Greetings from a virologist (but not a retro one)! ;)

I definitely preferred the other one, even if this one is more morphologically correct. xD

Still, I always laugh when I see this. Thank you :love:

lol. Funny design!
Now if it helps to distribute knowledge of what a real retrovirus is, that would be great too ;)
