About the design
on February 9, 2011
"Tricks Are For Squids" is a squid pretending to be a boat so it can grab some other boats for munching. I came up with the idea when working on a similar illustration for a Facebook game and noticed that the squid silhouette was similar to the boat silhouette. So (after redrawing the concept of course) I decided to make a Threadless shirt. I was hoping that the water line could extend all the way across the front, but of course, if that isn't possible for printing, it could stop before the sleeves. I hope that you like my sneaky squid!
