Teddy kills whiskers

Watch this

I think it doesn't have the required quality for being accepted on Threadless. Even more, the illustration is hard to read (it was difficult for me understand that that was a sack containing a cat).

At first glanced that looks like a large chicken leg. Also, not sure I'd want to buy a shirt with a teddy bear that just killed a cat :-/

I would recommend taking a look at all the printed designs: threadless.com/all to get an idea of what gets printed. Threadless and its customers love cats so I don't think this design would go over very well.

Lol I see what you mean, and I like cats too, but for now ill scrap this one. I may comeback later and try something completely different with the bear, and look more into threadless.

thank you both.

if you want to use the bear again, you could add some shading. this would make him look less flat :)

shading does not fix a poor concept.

Boom! Sometimes it's better to go back to the drawing board altogether. Figure out what subject matter is marketable and nice to look at. After that, you could be on to something!
