Rather like this one.

Miffsible

tofurky - that's the traditional spelling of tiger, using same spelling as William Blake used for the poem on which this is based

another $5 from me
these rock

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.

marvelous marvin

i like how tyger is holding the lit match with his paw. down with kites, up with static. :]

Gnomes4life

hahaha i love this!!!
its so random...great job

heyitsBrianna

i like the uni-brow..it cracks me up.

kasmir

this is kinda cool... but if he was in a forest why is there a fence behind the cat??!!!

Meagen

I hope people can think abstractly enough to enjoy this and vote high, $5

Jessie_Rae

Very child's-rhyme like.

maddog55

pancakesbl

the unibrow is most awesome!

JGilla

the unibrow adds the "WTF" factor to this shirt.

wilro

i love william blake so 5

merrnine

5 from my pet tyger he hates kites too, but I don't let him near the matches...

thatcrazywyles

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)

sugarless

its kinda funny that most ppl dont know its a poem

anyway, i like it. but i agree w/ mjoo that the kites should try to fly, and also maybe trees instead of a fence?

good job tho

mmmcakes

I love the fact its a cartoon! This is my fave :)

slender fungus

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.

thebaddestrobot

You guys it's not a fence, they're trees.

I love your work.

mdxxxvi

Okay, that's pretty funny. Fix the trees-that-look-like-a-fence and I would rock the heck out of that shirt.

broiler

hah-that's one great shirt! I love the expression on his face while he is setting fire to the kites.

snoopyluver

its so random, i love it

Funnel

the expression is priceless

kellizzle

AHHHH
idk why but i love it.

Miffsible

I know I've already said it but I have to say it again

I love this shirt so much

Like the Clod loves the pebble

I'd be happy even if nothing was altered

Edward J Grug III

I just looked at your past designs, I really like them! It's a shame they are not scoring higher, but don't give up!

Selina42

Clearly superior stuff!!!!!! I'll be gutted if i cant get a t-shirt of this!

General Gripweed

Love Blake, and I love this shirt!! XD Very clever.

freddy1966

Very funny, I bet Leo Sayer likes it

Odie Lu

I love it very much.
And you have very impressive work.

twenty7th

um, sorry but it is ugly and it has a unibrow and it is napoleon dynamite reminiscent, which is old.

OrangeRadioKitty

Well I love the poem, not so much the style of the shirt...

Starlotte

SO so so awesome! The best!!!

Jack-Ay

The fact only a select group of people will get this is awesome, I love the angry kitty!!

toonybabe

This needs to get printed ASAP!

vixyish

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.)

frannyve

thats pretty halarious

Andorra

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?

JinMakkto

AAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!

perfect! don't change a thing!


I love all the little details, like the angry monobrow and the "he hates kites" note.
