Of all the choices this week ... this one makes an early leap into the fog?

No offense to the artist, but I will *never* comprehend how the hive mind on the internet works ...

I'm actually quite surprised that this is in the fog. Though simple, it is well designed in both color and execution. Though there is no motion, the expression on the cat's face makes it obvious what is about to happen which is a subtlety nearly all of the shirts of this sort completely lack. Usually good simple shirts never fog.

the hive mind works like a drone bee. emphasis on drone.

There are a metric buttload of cats in this doubletake. Of course, look at some of the people they HM'd, and I guess it's not surprising, since that's all they draw. I wouldn't mind a "no cats" rule soon.

It's the restraint in this design that makes it work (and the shared experience of doing this to our pets... :p).

Much thanks mrwednesday, I really appreciate your response and thoughtful comment!

@AdderXYU - I'm pretty sure every designer that HMed with a cat design this derby has done many cat-less designs as well. And I also wouldn't mind a ban on a number of things here, but c'est la vie.

That cat's facial expression is so perfect.

This one still makes me laugh every time I see it. The simplicity really works for this one. It's really all about the cats expression. ಠ_ಠ

I'm still surprised this didn't win the first time around.

If you don't talk to your cat about catnip, who will?

Let's go Duke!

I also like the simplicity of this one.
Something that keeps nagging at my brain, though, is that nebulous gray shadow behind the cat. There's a more defined shadow under the cat, but the fluffy one on the wall behind him doesn't match with the shape at all.
Just something my brain is having a hard time with.

whats about to happen? That cat is not going to do anything.. because that goes against a cat's nature.

He just looks so angry. You can tell he's seconds away from attck mode. This is the only shirt I really wanna buy from this derby. It had my vote the first time around, and it's got it again

Glad you like the simplicity, thanks sTyLeS. I see what you mean about the shadow behind the wall. I didn't want to have a hard shadow behind the cat, it was too much, but I wanted to have something setting it on the shirt, so there was artistic license there.

Depends on the cat!

I WANT THIS SHIRT, I won the lottery today, got a new job, a girlfriend and a new car, but today still sucks because I saw that this shirt had fallen out of the fog.
