    Okay fuck it, i've decided to go with this. I figured that name was not something a dude would want on his shirt...I know I wouldn't.
    I ended up changing that can opener as well, it was really nagging me after Flay brought the spacing up. Hopefully it looks a bit more uniform now.

    Thanks for all the help guys.

    I'm not sure if this is a big deal or not, but The Great Catsby is already the name of something

    Maybe a Pavolov joke? (since he like, studied dogs, it'd be ironic)

    Right Caternicus, if anybody has taken Caternicus I'm going to stab myself with a rock.

    EDIT: Oh Napp and P, thanks for the ideas. I tried them out but couldn't get them happening.

    It's probably because it sucks......or I suck. One of the two.....maybe both.
    I'm comfortable with it sucking, but while I didn't think it'd get printed I thought it'd at least make to the voting process.

    I guess i just mean... considering some of the stuff that gets through to voting, I didn't realize there /was/ as screening process.

    This isn't to say i think your design is bad (I personally like it)- but there is some absolute shit that gets through to voting there.

    Well in all fairness, they're like anti-vampires. They have no desire for my blood, in fact my blood is so distasteful they won't even allow it into mix with the regular victims.

    Thanks Mensch
    Does anyone find it too complicated? Like it doesn't read quickly enough? Or at all? Is it too kitsch? Not humourous?

    I posted it on threadless critique and got one response that it was baffling. I just really want to know why it's not working for people.

    My only thought its that you likely don't actually need the caption- the symbols really tell someone looking at the shirt everything they need to know.

    That said, I'm a sucker for cat puns so.........

    Yeah, I thought something similar. I ended up cutting the caption down to "Catsingburg's Law".

    I think it is a tad wordy and complicated. A bit obvious too. It's essentially saying "people feed cats". Nothing groundbreaking.

    I really like you colab with your niece though.

    Thanks for the feedback Nib, I was hoping someone would give me an honest answer on why they didn't like it. I've marked it up as a dud, but it's nice to have it confirmed.

    It just sounds like you're being too hard on yourself.

    I keep saying that Threadless is full of vampires because Threadless embodies the evils of creative over-competitiveness. The website only makes a few prints each week, and a lot of their artists get jealous and try to suck the blood out of the competition. They treat it like a zero-sum game.

    Collective creativity doesn't work that way. Period. And it's a shame when people like you feel bad about yourselves and the work that you've done, just because a community-based t-shirt company turns its constituent artists into selfish pricks.

    As for your design: I like it. It's not the best thing ever, but I like it. Honestly.

    It's funny because it describes the mathematical certitude that a cat will eat food when you feed it.

    Oh don't worry P, I'm not killing myself over it.
    I've been arting long enough to be able to seperate my ego from my work. I just like to know why things don't work before I drop them, so I've at least learnt something from the failure.

    I still say the design is good- threadless just has a thing about not mixing words with art (and since the equation is clear you probably don't need the cat pun)

    On the plus-side, I thought the rendering of the symbols was quite nice.
