The Velveteen Bear
When I first thought about 'pre-loved' or 'pre-owned' my mind went to the Velveteen Rabbit.
Then I thought the twist of the boy's stuffed animal coming to life would be hilarious, if it was the bear (aka pooh).
yeah probably too similar to be printed for a longggg time, but it's got a really nice execution. i especially like the texturing.
um...it's almost the same exact pose as Roni & Mo's just-printed shirt.
Dude, i'm not okay with this. this is the exact same bear that was printed last week flipped horizontally! lame.
LOL! Great! 5$
I like it but is there going to be a copyright issue?
I'm sure the resemblance was accidental, everyone. No one apes last week's success story on purpose. Move the righteous indignation along.
excellent style and awesome print texture!!
Wow, I'm really sorry everyone. I wish I would have seen that design before I made this. It was a complete coincidence. I looked at a photo of a grizzly bear, for that pose I used.
I came up with the concept and idea, without even seeing that other shirt. I just thought the pre-loved idea worked so great with the velveteen bear concept.
no worries david, obviously the similarity here is an complete accident. things like this happen all the time. at the very least it shows that this design probably would've printed, if the other one didn't exist. :)
bears rule!! nice execution!
Thanks for the comments everyone.
Yeah - obviously just bad timing - there was another one even before the one that was printed too...
For what it's worth - I do really like the simplicity of yours and the texture is great! Here are the two people are talking about:
A Very Naughty Bear - which was not a reprint - just a first time print
Hooves in the Honey
Yeah, I've been out of the threadless loop lately, so I haven't been seeing the ones being printed.
I might try to find a different example, for the velveteen concept.
so, i guess dschwen, i have to give you the benefit of the doubt if you say that you had no idea about the other design. it sucks when you think you have an original fun idea and another someone comes along and beats you to it. so i apologize.
I really appreciate it. I really does suck when you come up with an idea, and then see that someone has already done it!
I concepted around the idea of pre-loved. So my mind went to the velveteen rabbit, and how the boy loved his stuffed animal so much, that it came to life. I thought 'Winnie the Pooh' would be perfectly hilarious for this idea.
Again, many apologies, as I didn't see the other design first.
