more my speed...

Okay, so, after getting hated on by all the teenage girls at Threadless, I discovered that the parent company has another site called Naked + Angry. It works the same way as Threadless (submit/rated by members), but instead of T-shirts, it's for fabric designs — like repeating patterns and such. (If you win they make ties or something with your pattern.) The nerdiness of making a repeating pattern plus the art/decorative part equals something I really dig.

Plus it seems to be a smaller, more adult, community of contributors/members, so things are more polite/constructive, and the submissions are approved and up for voting in 24 hours (versus 4 to 7 days for Threadless). I submitted FIVE patterns over the past few days, and they're all up right now: square spiral (look familiar?); swirl botanical; comb; tribe angles; and rangey.

Who knows, maybe I'll win something! ...eh, probably not, but I'm having a lot more fun over there.

would love to see your threadless designs. yeah the whole voting thing there seems weird. seems like the same kinds of designs just keep showing up. I do think the ones they end up printing are pretty cool but so many of the submissions are redundant and derivative!

DOOOde you weren't joking about the harsh comments! dumb beetches!

the naked and angry designs are crazy! man! would make me blind!

thanks Page + Andy!
