Re: Change of luck

Black cats guys... they need all the good press they can get.

Edit: For anyone interested, I drew this one with pen and paper, and then colored/edited it digitally

Sure, it's a black cat on a grass green shirt, but no, I don't see it close enough to say S.S.E.

This, OTOH, is very similar, but their art director was active here at the time LaL printed so I'm sure she is aware and I'm also pretty sure whomever on their staff that designed it was allowed to be "inspired" by their boss.

Toothless (and all the dragons) from H2TYD are totally based on Cats. I think that makes the connection even stronger.

I'd say Jasneko is in the clear by a lot. If there were only one cat shirt allowed on Woot, we'd all be out of business.

Re: Change of luck

Thanks for the comments all!

@stanwillis - you noticed! I've been dabbling more with drawing designs with an ink pen on paper, then coloring it digitally. (I typically create the whole design on the computer). And this was one of them - so the inky look is indeed, ink!

If there was only one catshirt, my closet would be 12% less stuffed.

(Catshirtswoot sells a lot of non-cat shirts too.)

I am always amazed that similar or copies can be found so easily, also that duplicates don't happen more often.

Similar shirts existing is a real thing, but it's also a matter of whether such was intentional or not.

(Drifting off @jasneko's design here ...)

The case between Lucky at Last and Lucky Toothless is that it's the same folks are involved. While @RamyB isn't always doing the designs himself now (several staff artists), @ProfHotPants was art director here at the time and currently she is the art director at TeeTurtle.

I should have asked, how other than sharp eyed tee shirt buyers, do the copies get found. I am sure others and beginning designers would like to know,so they don't accidentally copy.

Google and/or just knowing that the idea/design looks similar to something else seen elsewhere.

Woot also printed these 3 shirts within 6 months of each other, so that doesn't seem to apply much these days.

If there are no 4-leaf clovers in the patch he's sitting in... does that still make him good luck? ;)

Oh, and sorry (not sorry) we called you buckaroo.
