I think this design will be popular during the winter/fall season especially Halloween.

I have finally made a Cat inspired T-shirt! This one actually took a while and was supposed to be the second or third entry to this blog. However, satisfaction with the cat silhouettes I drew was shortcoming. It took many iterations but I am very happy with the cat shape. I think this design will be popular during the winter/fall season especially Halloween.

Research

For the design of this shirt I used an initial sketch I had made as inspiration. I also looked up images of cats online to get the right silhouette. 

Illustrator

For this T-shirt design I used Illustrator. This is my favorite program to use because it is fast and simple. I also lean towards Illustrator because my T-shirt template is an illustrator file.

Process

I first drew a template on paper and used it as a reference while drawing in Illustrator. I used the brush tool, eclipse tool and shape builder tool. Once happy with the graphic I decided on not having text on this shirt design.

 Saving The File

I saved this image as a png like the rest. I like the resolution and file format for the web.

What animal should I put on a shirt next? Any T-shirt design tips?

Thank you,

Perla
