So Nate wears t-shirts pretty much every day during the warmer months and 99.9% of them are from his favorite shirt company, Threadless.

Well Threadless has contests all the time for you to design a shirt for them, and if enough people vote for your design, it gets made into a shirt!

Each contest has a theme, and Nate always tells me to enter despite the fact that I don’t have the graphic design skills that most of the people submitting have…but when we saw one of the themes this month is “Supercats,” we knew it was a sign.

Well ok, I was still a little scared to take the plunge, but how could I say no to these two faces:

I didn’t spend a whole lot of time on this and I don’t have the appropriate software, so I had to sketch the cat on Nate’s ipad and import it into photoshop. Maybe next time I’ll try to make it a bit more polished.

Anyway, without further ado, here is my t-shirt design entitled “kittyscape,” inspired by none other than my favorite cat, L.C. who always sleeps on our living room window ledge.

Please go to http://www.threadless.com/supercats/kittyscape/ and vote for me!!!

There are only 10 days left to vote!

    I can’t believe you’re not into decorating cupcakes and such given how artistic you are! Totally different things, I’m sure…

    • You have to sign in to vote, sorry :( they totally shouldn’t make that a rule. I think I would enjoy decorating cupcakes, I just haven’t tried it!

    Oh M’Gosh… love!! You simply cannot say NO to those faces :). Now it may be that I don’t yet have enough caffeine coursing through my blood but it is not immediately evident to me how to vote. Do you have to login to vote? (and not just comment).

    • Yes, unfortunately you have to log in to vote :( Sorry. I think the gonna discourage people from voting. Thank you, Kelly!!

  7. I love cats….although I don’t have any right right. I really love your t-shirt design. So pretty. I’m heading over to vote for you now. :)

    • Thank you for voting, Amy!! I love cats too…I had a dog growing up but now unlike cats so much better. Mostly because they’re cleaner and smell better :)

  8. You can’t go wrong with cats and skylines! Kudos for taking the plunge; I’m a graphic design student and I haven’t even had the guts to submit to Threadless! I’ve voted. Good luck, Amy :)

    • Aw thank you :) You TOTALLY need to submit a design!!! You have nothing to lose and I guarantee it would be awesome (and way better than mine). Let me know if you do so i can vote!
