I got the idea for this design while chatting with my mom on the phone. She was telling me what a hard day she was having and that she was feeling like a "Nowhere Mouse" in reference to the "Nowhere Man" in the animated film "The Yellow Submarine".

I've often heard her use this description of herself when she's feeling stressed out or down, but this time an image in my mind's eye came up of a blue mouse lost in a sea of mouse holes, desperately trying to find a piece of cheese. In this case I made it a piece of swiss cheese to mirror the the holes in the maze.

Anyway, I thought a simple, bold design like this would be a good entry for the 10k Challenge. This would be a traditional print using 5 colours and works well on white, silver, light blue or yellow. Thanks as always to NiNTHWHEELfor the awesome tee templates.

Nice story there, and a really interesting and different design from you.

Thanks people!

I know this is different from my usual stuff, but I just wanted to try something really simple and graphic for a change, tends to be the kind of design I personally like to wear.

Glad you like it. :) I thought of getting rid of the texture, but decided I liked the hand-drawn look of it.
