I drew a cat 🙂
It’s, of course, started with a simple sketch on reMarkable:
But then I spent way too much time painting all the flowers. I was thinking it would look good on greeting cards and t-shirts. I added it in my TRUFFLEPIG store.
Today, I opened my new store on Threadless. It’s called TRUFFLEPIG because I like pigs and it’s a funny words. There will mostly be cute and humorous designs there. The main reason why I had decided to start a new store is that my main store, Fox Shiver, has gotten too big and is a mess — there are all kinds of designs there, no consistency.
From now on, I will be adding most of my designs — if they match the style — to my new store. But designs that aren’t funny and don’t have cute animals I will submit to my old store. I am also planning on opening yet another store with a completely different style. But for now, I want to make more designs for TRUFFLEPIG.
Here is my new store: TRUFFLEPIG
And here is my main store: FOX SHIVER
“I will sleep until my problems disappear” is my new design, and I will add it to my new store soon.
I am experimenting with different colors. Most of my designs used to be black and white, but in my new store, I plan to have more variety.
It’s interesting how random things can inspire us.
I was playing Stardew Valley recently, and in-game you can have seeds that you can plant. One kind of seed is Fall Seeds. When you hover over it in your inventory, you can read the description: “An assortment of wild fall seeds”.
That word – assortment – stuck with me. And I thought, “What would an assortment of cats look like?” because I like drawing cats. And so I drew just that.
That’s the second design inspired by Stardew Valley. I wrote about the first one a few days ago. Maybe I should play more games as an inspiration 🙂
And here is “Assortment of Cats” on a t-shirt:
I was playing Stardew Valley and I had a cat shirt. Or so I though.
It was in fact a skull shirt. But I didn’t know that. I thought, “I am going to draw a giant cat head”. So here’s my new design:
At first, I drew it like so:
I painted it with white color only — those dark grey areas are just white pixels with very low opacity. But, as I know, those pixels would not be printed at all. There’s no point submitting a design with too many transparent pixels. That’s why I changed contrast, so only the white pixels with high opacity are left.
