The Big Catch by xiaobaosg The Big Catch by xiaobaosg
Inspired by my previous artwork , the story of Kintaro or "the Golden Boy" battling a giant carp.

Perhaps Legend didn't mentioned that Kintaro was actually a cat and he was battling a carp with a "kabuki" make up. :p


Thanks everyone that had voted for it.
It's available in Threadless now.

Buy here

I hope you like it as much as i do. :D

I really enjoy looking through your gallery!
This is one of my favourites - the choice of colors, the cat's expression, the fishscale-details and the way you make the water seem almost real... Great work!

I love your work (you already know that :D) but I don't know how you could submit it to threadless. Their licensing agreement is brutal just for submitting, not to mention if it gets printed. If it gets printed you lose ALL rights to your design.
They're making a pocket full of cash and you're getting chump change.

Yes I know, as a talented artist you can always come up with more, but why make someone else rich?
Go on your own, print your own shirts and pocket those profits. $ca-ching$

Thanks for your concern , roren. I'm really flattered as i don't considered myself as a talented artist . I'm still somewhat a amateur artist .

Actually , you are the only one who had asked me about this. Over the years, i received mails from friends in DA asking about buying tee shirt from me.

I used to sell my own apparel years ago and it's not a easy things as the price will be costly ( around $30USD) due to it's a limited print so submitting to contest is the only things i can do for friends and peoples who wished to get my design at a better price.(*Although so far, its regretful that most of it had not been printed due to low voting rate.)

Probably until I'm financially capable , I might print my own. For now i can only submit to whoever can to do it .

Thanks again. :D
