Tyger Tyger Burning Kites.

Rather like this one.

This is a cartoon. This is not a shirt. The fence makes things too boxy (why not trees instead?). Also, you are missing out on the coolest thing about kites- they fly away! Wouldn't this be much more interesting if some of the kites were trying to escape being burnt? The fact that everything in this is so static is really killing the concept.

Blake is my favorite poet and painter!

They are trees! its just the style... and i was kind of going for a dead pan image hence no flying away kites or that kind of thing. Thanks for the comments so far :o)

OH EM GEE I KNOW THAT POEM.

some dude made a really terrible song of it that my friend was listening to over and over again for like, a week straight to help him memorize the poem for a song.

because all of this, i love this shirt.

What's that sound? Why, it's William Blake rolling over in his grave!

But seriously, this is actually kind of cute, as a cartoon. But I agree with mjoo; I just don't think it quite works on a shirt. Or not a shirt Threadless would sell. Maybe a shirt Hallmark would sell. (I don't mean that as an insult. I just mean, you need to know your market. I don't think the majority of Threadless buyers are your target demographic for this style.)

thats pretty halarious

I think it should be on a dark shirt with dark trees in the background... and the fire would stand out and the tiger would be sort of lit up by the fire.. and some of the burning kites trying to fly away
that would be cool!

but that's just my interpretation! I love that poem, by the way. maybe you could color this picture and it would be better?

oh i absolutely love it!!

I'm wary of April Fools pranks today, but if this is legit, it's kinda growing on me.

Woo! thanks for the comments. Its fun seeing such a mix of reactions to my design. The "...I Can Has Cheez Burger Crap.." comment made me laugh for ages, thanks! :oD

Its especially exciting because it scored so low I thought people must of hated it so its nice to hear the positive comments from people who like the tee.

To be honest I think the April Fools day prints were probably the strongest bunch collectively that Threadless have released for ages. They're just so interesting. Don't listen to the haters.

Don't be sorry! its to be expected really, i didn't think my style was suited to threadless but i wanted to give it a go and people must like it for it to be picked! Lots of people have said nice things too. I find the hater comments kind of funny, some are so strange, its weird really...why bother saying anything at all? sigh! But that is the world we live in i suppose...

I think negative comments are a sign you've done something right. If you please everyone you probably haven't really pushed the boat out, much. You did that with this and got printed despite the score and any negative comments. Q-dos!
