I like the threadless t-shirt site a lot. The standard of design is generally very high, submissions are often extremely witty, and with the exchange rate being what it is at the moment, it’s possible to order several items and have them shipped to the UK without breaking the bank. I also like the idea of anyone being able to upload their own design and, if reaction is positive enough, that image being made into a shirt that people can actually buy. It’s a great community, and it’s fun.
Which is where you come in. I have no artistic ability, of course, but that hasn’t stopped me trying to muscle in on this hot clothing action. You can see a sneak preview of my feeble, childish, retarded brushwork above, and by following this link here, yes, this one right here, you can vote for my submission, which is something I suggest you do straight away. You will have to register, but it’ll be worth it to see geeky teens across the globe dressed in my handiwork, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Update: After 100 votes, the average score for my design was 1.49, just a tenth of a point off where I needed to be to carry on in the competition. Instead, I’ve been consigned to the archive. Binned. Rejected. Eliminated. Forgotten. Discarded. Shunned. Cast aside. Jilted.
