No, but really. From what I saw in your "what I like" thread, I can't really say that reality is what you're trying to bring any of us to. Your tastes are incredibly esoteric.
I have the same opinion of my designs, that they are unremarkable. Sure, but I'm not a shirt designer. I experimented with printing, and some people have liked what I've made, so I'm keeping it up. It's nothing more than this. The gun shirt IS overdone (keeping in mind that mine was designed almost 2 years ago), and the gear one is just another experiment. However, I despise Urban Outfitters shirts and don't think much higher of Threadless on the basis of "anything where art is submitted with the purpose of being ranked by the masses and then printed for "fashion" is bullshit," I would never place myself in the same bracket as them. I imagine the threadless designers as being the annoying kids in my design class who make pseudo-artsy cute designs and then act stupid and pretentious when you critique their work.
Yawn. Good luck getting a job ripping off Ryan McGinness and drawing Gremlins.
