I knew this was yours before I even clicked on it. That orange tabby never disappoints.

Yeah, so there's that...

I hope this prints on a t-shirt... so that woot eventually reprint it on an apron! (Totally love it, Ocho, just awesome. And I'm serious about the apron!)

Re: Creature Comfort


Really great design, Ochopika! I love your kitty characters so Im glad to see one here! If I might add a bit of critique, I think there's a touch of busyness with the text. Personally, I think it would have worked super with just "Kitteh's You Can Haz Cheezeburger's". Also, the bonnet is adorable, but it might make it seem a tad feminine for the boys. Just a big ol' cute kitteh would be great.

Anyways, those are just some thoughts, I still love this design. :D You're one of my favorites to watch cause I love your cute animals <3.

I agree with everything here. It's not a gender thing, but I just don't feel like the bonnet is necessary either. Nor the "Mama" like they were saying. I think it will stay truer to the meme/joke of it all if it's just Kitteh's Cheezburgers, You Can Haz.

But yes! I love the overall idea and most of the execution and would totally buy and wear one like that!

Thanks, Bass! You give great critiques. I think that I spent too long on this design so it lost some needed simplicity. I definitely see your point with the extra words and the lady-bonnet.

Lately, I've been using Thursday to think of different ideas and just make rough sketches. I only let myself get started on the real design on Friday morning. That way, I can "give the idea some space" and see if it's really working or not. I didn't do that with this idea because I was afraid the hand-lettering would take toooo long. So, yea... I didn't get enough space away from this design to see that it was too busy!

I'll make a simplified version and post it, hey why not! Thanks for your help .

I have to say I like both designs, I just see it and imagine the makin' bread cat is in the back making buns.

Same. Still kicking myself for having missed the Makin' Bread apron.
