how dreaming cats travel
Oh hai guys
Ever wondered where cats go when they sleep? I believe they sail the seas in their dreams...
The Cat and the Sea
It is a matter of a black cat
On a bare cliff top in March
Whose eyes anticipate
The gorse petals;
The formal equation of
A domestic purr
With the cold interiors
Of the sea's mirror.
Please be gentle- this is my first submission, and I had some hassles with getting the file size down. Will post close-ups shortly.
oh yay it is up!
i just wanted to say that the soundtrack for this tshirt design was Calexico's amazing and beautiful Toolbox album (especially the track Vinyassa); as well asSigur Rós' new album Með Suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust, especially the track Fljótavík. Here are those lyrics translated somewhat into english:
Fljótavík (place name in Iceland)
We look over the rudder
Cut off the sea
We sail by the mast
Stretch the sails
We steer towards the bridge
We sail ashore
Up on the large rocks and the sand
We wade ashore
What a mess
There I found myself
Sheltered in a makeshift house
And we slept
As the storm died down
seriously, those songs are incredible and really helped with the visualisation of this design. thanks so much for voting!

This CD rocks, so does your shirt!
loves the kittens!!!
holy craptacular, wow. The design color should maybe be a bit darker than the shirt color, compared to how it is now? I do not want the viewer of my shirt to miss a thing if I wear this. $5
...err, darker and lighter. Or just not a blue shirt.
Weird and wonderful!

crash and burn :(
def deserve higher bu def not bad for a first sub! keep it up taz :)
I love this design... I wish I'd seen it when it was being scored. I'm watching... waiting...
Seeing your icon makes me think this would be amazing with some of the glow in the dark ink that's on tief fairies... especially with how jellyfish shimmer.
This really deserved a better score. I think people probably went into autopilot because it didn't jump out and punch them in the eye sockets... precisely why it's so literally dreamy and lovely... (my own kitty is twitching and dreaming away... I feel like joining her in an early-day nap on this dreary weathered afternoon!)
i think we need this printed.
d3d on Oct 26 '08 nice to see at last. there aren't enough nautilus designs

i think it is about time i stopped being so chicken and subbed something again.
This is really awesome!

graphics tablet and photoshop.
thanks dude :)
rubbish, cats and rabbots, rubish....
wait. so you come to my ancient sub to insult it, and then i must vote on yours?? wtf
