My entry for the Rob & Big Loves comp. This design uses special UV color change ink as stated above, which changes from being almost invisible indoors to revealing bright and hidden colors when exposed to any ultraviolet light!
This sub is dedicated to my sister, who used to have several imaginary friends when we were very young, all of which I apparently didn't believe in. Shows what I know, huh?

Hope you guys like this, and as always lemme know what you think!

I love the idea and the design and the illustration- I really dont' like the creme shirts though.

Does the UV ink only show up on light colors?

cool colours. Reminds me of a mixture between "where the wild things are" and Totoro from "my neighbor totoro".

Awesome creation!

Clever. The only thing is it won't be awesome during the night time. It'll just be a two kids. Don't get me wrong I like it and would buy it, but would it be possible to do glow in the dark ink also?

Sgt.Dobad

Hello can you make this shirt for me. I would like an imaginary friend that is FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND TIMES bigger than I am.

olie-- your sister had some links to your shirts, and i followed them, and they are TOTALLY SWEET! seriously, even though all your designs aren't necessarily my style, they're all quite well done. way to be awesome!

dezineliz

Like it, but don't like the UV idea. I think it should just be like that period.

The voters don't choose the winner, Threadless staff and some people from Rob & Big do. And the winner hasn't been chosen so just chill.

I have a girl's medium but he's probably not that small. There is a website, of which I forget the name, that offers used Threadless shirts. I think you can post requests, too. Make a blog and ask for the name of the web address in it (might as well mention what shirt you want in the blog, too). Someone else will give you the info you need.
