The Daily Walrus

Last night, my slumber was interrupted by the chime of my phone, and when I read the message it brought, I thought I was dreaming. It said "Your daily is up!" This was definitely well worth me groping around in the dark for my laptop to check Shirt.Woot. And there it was! I was so happy I could have just hugged that little crab. I'm not even sure it's possible to hug a crab, but I would try.

Anyway here I am this morning and it was indeed not a dream. Some of you may remember this design when I tried it out at Shirtfight. Sadly, it didn't make it there, but happily it found its place as my first Shirt.Woot Daily. I've changed it up a bit, hopefully for the better.

Aside from this excitement I'd like to point out a couple of other well dressed animals at Springleap. Please help these cats get a second chance by scoring and commenting.

And one last thing: Since I was fortunate enough to reach my last design goal, I figured it was time to move on to another. I've decided to focus a lot of my creative energy into Threadless in hopes to get a print there. It was kind of a tough decision to make, because for me, in order to do this properly, I'm going to have to lay off the Derbies for a little while. Up until the past couple of months, the Derbies were a bit of an addiction. But I began to get discouraged from the time constraints. There were occasions where I had to sacrifice quality and experimentation in order to submit on time. This way, I can take the time to learn new techniques and to perfect designs instead of rushing them. So, don't miss my Derby stuff too much, k? Hopefully this will help even better things to happen. :)

As always, thanks for reading, and thanks for all of your support, my dear, dear friends.
