Leaving the Comfort Zone

Much like this little creature leaving the security of his alien home, I'm leaving my comfort zone with this design-

that is, my comfort zone for what may be expected of my submissions at threadless....but in reality, I am just being myself- creating a design that is probably truer to my personal art and lifetime of doodles than I have ever submitted here before.



and that's the trend in 2010 that I hope us designers will take- getting away from what has become their expected approaches, obvious jokes or gimmicks, and creating designs that are more personal and organic.



a larger detailed view can be seen on my flickr profile here:

the background grid is optional, and fades into the shirt.

the gradients shown would be printed in the simulated process, using small halftones or similar. can also be printed on dark blue, brown, purple and other dark colors.
