Love this! Is it on navy or black?

(Looking for great entries on the now "rare" colors that might end up being printed on AA!)

Re: Trojan Cat


This reminds me of Jabba the Fluff (which I just got in the mail yesterday). Like that one, I love the color and the art style. You've got my vote!

Yeah, so there's that...

The colors are pretty similar to jabba the fluff. I didn't realize this until I was finished with the design but I decided they worked anyways. Thanks for the kind words.

I don't know...I mean the Trojans took the horse into the city of Troy because they LIKED horses. Something tells me Trojan mice WOULDN'T LIKE a cat. On the other hand maybe it's just me over-thinking things. It's still cute nonetheless.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought of this ^^

It just doesn't make any sense, which ruins it for me. Otherwise, it's cute.

Well... when I see this I assume the mice are giving the trojan cat to a bunch of cats. But in that case I guess it should be a trojan tuna. :-)

Of course, some historians think that the Trojan horse was actually a boat. They theorize the language that referred to it as a horse was actually some kind of code word used by the military.

I hope it was a horse because that would be boring if it were a plain old boat...anyways, maybe next time I'll make a Trojan Cheese *edit; nevermind I was confused. I thot that I had it wrong and that the mice should have made something they themselves liked.* I just thought that cat was funnier. Glad you think it's cute anyways.

@bass- thanks so much! I'm sure you'll get to have ONE of the mice shirts, and I think I know which one :P *edit* that sounded grumpy when I re-read it, but it's not. I really like that space mouse shirt.

haha, I actually already knew what this was without the link. Dr. Nick Hall talks about it in one of his lectures that I listened to on CD. He's great.

you arent alone, I was thinking this should have been a trojan mouse with dogs inside (given to a city of cats).
I really like the idea just it doesnt click with me coz of this.

Wait wait wait... ok now I'm just confused. So, the Greeks made a horse to give to the city of Troy. The Trojans took the horse inside and the Greeks crept out at night and were able to take the city. The Trojans in my design would like a giant cat because they are cats. I thought that having the Trojan cat would imply that it were cats that would be accepting the gift. I would think that cats would enjoy a large sculpture honoring them. A Trojan tuna would also be great, or even a mouse in that case.

tl;dr Its a cat because cats are vain and would love a giant sculpture of themselves. There, I'm glad I figured out how to explain myself.
