  • I hear you. And I'm sorry the design invokes those feelings.

    The shells are in the character's arsenal. A Mario Kart reference. A "Power up". Not a negative reference but a positive one. I guess my sloppy execution is what is offensive.

    But I'm working on something else now. Thanks for your feedback!

  • I like the style and the strangeness of the concept. I would probably have given it at least a 3 because it wasn't a wow but it's good. By biggest criticism is that the image in the background is kind of odd and doesn't really match your hand drawn style at all. Maybe personal taste.

  • I'm less concerned with whether or not someone is offended, and more with whether they have good reason to be. I would rather know the justification for the offense so I can decide whether or not I agree and if my behavior or point of view should be changed as a result.

    Since I submitted this design, I was contacted on Facebook on behalf of a child with cerebral palsy requesting the use of the submitted shirt design for a fundraiser for athletic equipment. It's too bad it would be against Threadless' ToS.

    If you read the comments, another Threadless artist in a wheelchair commented on the design with positive feedback based on his personal experience and we've touched base off site so that he can get a copy of the shirt when Threadless official rejects it for printing.

  • You're the first to tell me that. Thank you for calling me out. What was it specifically that you found offensive? If it really is offensive I'd like to avoid making the same mistake in the future.

  • Not at all. But this design wasn't very good.
