A Fantastic Four Years - Thanks

I just wanted to say thanks to Threadless and everybody who's helped me develop over the past four years.


At the time I found Threadless I was going through a challenging time, both personally and professionally. Threadless was the catalyst which helped fill a huge void in my life and also gave me a kick up the ass to start making things in my spare time. I never imagined that I would be here four years later, still making things, still enjoying it and still learning.


I've been so lucky to be printed, but also feel privileged to have made some great friends, collaborated with talented artists and thinkers, and in the meantime created a tonne of designs I would never have created if I'd not built up the courage to submit here. It's enabled me to learn techniques which help with my job and given me a much needed distraction when life's got too much.


I'm not great at writing this kind of stuff but anniversaries are often times of reflection, I just wished I'd found Threadless sooner!

Even though I only really started getting involved in Feb last year, my profile says I've been here for over 4 years. I like that, it makes me feel like a big man.

Well said John, I think we started about the same time and everything you said applies to me to me too, Threadless was my creative release away from the commerical design world and 4 years later I am still here too... and loving it just as much as ever.
