When I opened one of my stores a few years ago, I planned to draw little foxes and put them on t-shirts and tote bags. It was supposed to be dark and weird art, the foxes would all be alone in forests and caves, at night. And it would be winter.

It would be great to have a thematically consistent store with a fantastic name. But what’s even better is to actually open a store with any name that comes to mind and start publishing and selling.
When you look around, you will notice that plenty of people didn’t overthink their store names either. Go through the stores on any of the websites, and you will see lots of artists who often used a combination of words that they liked or simply their name or nickname.
One of my favorite artists is Nathan W. Pyle. If you don’t know him, here is one of his designs:
Guess what’s the name of Nathan W. Pyle’s store on Threadless.
Here’s another artist that I like: Martina Scott and her store.
You don’t need a perfect name for your store, you need to make art and share it.
