T-SHIRT REJECTS 01

snuggle at your own peril

Here is the first design of mine to be rejected by Threadless! Too bad for them, this kitten has it all, and by “all” I mean “stegosaurus spikes.” So what went horribly wrong? Perhaps the design simply does not scream T-shirt. Maybe it is just a bit too simplistic and a circular enclosure with stars on it or something would make it look more like clothes. Or maybe some clever text should be incorporated. Perhaps Threadless is playing a game of heady psychological warfare that ends with me drawing the same stego-kitten over and over a thousand different ways before I realize “Wait. This is a pretty dumb thing to go all code red over isn’t it?” But by then it will be too late. I wil have wasted years of my life. My trembling hands will drop my last pencil on the floor, in a room littered with thousands of versions of the same drawing, each only slightly different. My old hoarse voice rattles a final “Whyyyyyy? and I collapse dead, face-first, on my own sketchpad.

SCORE: A falconer’s glove (for petting unsafe kittens).

      Thank you, Sue! Sorry for the outrageously late reply. I have always eyed this design as one that can be improved a bit. Now that I am out of school I may be inclined to throw some T-shirts out into the world, and this one is right up there for me 🙂

      If you like, I can send you a message if that happens for reals. Thank you for the comment!
