A Rossmat8 / Bygrinstow collab.

Pull the cord, and let us know what you think.

Kim456

good to see it up...came out great!

rossmat8

AWESOME! Can't believe after almost 150 days since I came up with this idea the design is finally up for scoring. This is based on the See N Say toy I assume we all had as kids where you'd pull the cord and the arrow would land on something and a voice would say the cow says moo or something like that. Hope you like it.

I've bumped into seeing this on the main page of Threadless under the 'score designs' header twice out of two times coming in through the front page -- is anybody else getting that, or is that just for my ego-expansion?

Whoa! -- I am stoked to break a two the first time out of the chute!

I am even thereby less bothered by the creepiness of the number of votes....

rossmat8

Little disappointed in the score, but what can you do? Back to the drawing board. Thanks again for doing this Jon.

I'm not sure how your others have done, Ross, but I think getting past a two is a respectable start.

I think re-thinking the 'box' of the toy and how it relates to the wearer is the main element to work on. Like off the bat, instead of a gap, maybe a picture of a generic model in a shirt with the see-and-say on it...

rossmat8

maybe. I don't know I'll let this go 90 days then start thinking about resubbing. I just think the average voter didn't "get it"

Disgruntled_Pacifist

THIS NEEDS TO BE RE-DONE, for some reason I have been thinking a lot about this design and thought I'd better give it a bump

Dennis, if you have a suggestion on how to make it work, I'm open to that, and I'm sure Ross is, too.

I've tried a few times to draw something that'd work to make it clearer, but haven't liked anything I've done since this for it. Except I'm pretty sure I drew some new, extra animals to fill it up more, and they were okay...

Disgruntled_Pacifist

I think what you have to do is keep it classic. Only barnyard animals and perhaps something to make the wearer appear to be a farmer. This would make a great kids shirt and should be targeted that way.

Ross, are you listening? What do you think - no rock, no soda machine, no fish...?

I think the other animals I sketched were a pig and something else, but I can't find the drawings, so they may have to come from scratch anyway... Or just start the whole thing over from scratch...

rossmat8

Yeah maybe we could just do a normal see n say with the top pointing to the wearer. Maybe that would work better.

No account?
