This is Niiiice. All that hazy gold atmospheric glow... The way the cat fades in (or out)... Brilliant.

Re: In The Lair Of The Black Cat


The relationship with cats and mice is a part of everyday life in our home with our cat hunting little mice for sport. Here’s we have mice larpers on their grand quest for cheese with the black cat waiting in shadows of its lair ready to pounce on them. I hope people dig the design and here's a link to larger jpeg of the design for the detail.

This is fantastic, I love the cat's expression in the background.

This one is definitely the best design. All of the other designs basically use the same concept of "+1 Exp" etc. This one is amazing.

That cat is freaking me out! Those mice are in for a surprise. Nice job with the lighting.

This is a great original design! I am just wondering if there is something disproportionate about the cat's eyes or perhaps an angle problem.

Nah, I think the eye is reacting to the flame. Perhaps, fix the eye and flip flop the weapons of the outer mice. Though, then everyone that voted needs to switch their votes to the new version. Not worth a do-over, looks good how it is.

Love the design, but I think it's a bit off topic. :/

I think this shirt is just so cute and well done. I love that the mice LARPers are oblivious to the danger in their game.

Plus, it reminds me of Redwall, Mrs. Frisby and the Rates of NIMH, Tale of Despereaux and so many other wonderful fantasy fiction books with adventurous mice.

This is a beautiful illustration, way past the realm of normal t-shirt art. This should print whether it places in the derby or not. This is really how I've always imagined Martin the Warrior to be.

This is so incredibly beautiful! It doesn't look like a T-shirt, it looks like a work of art, which it is. Congrats on the design Midgerock, you've got my one and only vote in this derby.

Nice Shirt! However, it looks like that wand on the left isn't on fire or anything, which makes me question whether that mouse is really role-playing, or just magical.

Re: In The Lair Of The Black Cat


Yea, sorry. One eye still looks way too big in comparison to the other eye. I considered what cyclebex said, but I'm still not convinced.

This has to be one of my favorite designs from you Midge. Here's hoping for a print on a great shirt that tells a great story.

Re: In The Lair Of The Black Cat


Thanks everone for the comments and support. I've enjoyed reading them. I am always trying something new with designs each week. And this one really came together. As to the cat's eyes/visage, some people get it and dig it and others may not, and that's okay. I appreciate the feedback all the same.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • We can drown in mixed emotions or walk across an angry sea; this is the cost of being free.

Re: In The Lair Of The Black Cat


I do like the art, and the idea, but, I'm sorry to say, whenever I decide whether or not to vote on a shirt I have to ask myself: "Would I be excited to wear this shirt when I get up in the morning?" and I honestly can't say that about this one.

I would be happy for you to see this print, though, because it is original and creative, and well designed

Glad you appreciate the design none the less. ^___^ I hope you find a shirt that gets you excited to wear in the morning.
