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 and vote for me!!!

There are only 10 days left to vote!

    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!
