Winter Wildlife

Paw prints on freshly fallen snow. How wonderful!

Wait… those are bear prints. Oh no.

In some parts of the world, it’s already bitterly cold—even below freezing. And with those frigid temperatures come pristine, crystalized water falling from the sky and whimsical creatures traipsing through the snow. For your next Design Challenge, we want you to consider these beasts of winter. Big, small, and imaginary!

Will your art capture a white rabbit or polar bear subtly blending into the background? A woolly mammoth making a comeback? Or maybe our illusive, fluffy friend, the Yeti, will make a surprise appearance. Think winter, think nature, think wildlife. However you interpret this challenge, also consider donating a portion of your proceeds from your new design to our new Threadless Cause: Animals! Help support the mission of animal-focused charities such as the World Wildlife Fund, National Audubon Society, ASPCA, and more. While completely optional, it’s a nice way to create with purpose and show people you care. Visit our Help Page for more detailed instructions.

There’s snow time to waste! Get the fluff ready and powder through this challenge, snowfam!
