Well…after getting such positive feedback lately, maybe I got a little cocky.
I submitted another design to Theadless never thinking I would be rejected.
I thunk wrong. Rejection is never an easy thing to take but I guess going from enthusiastic amateur to hoping people will pay for the pleasure (in a purely artistic sense) it was to be expected. Still..it stung a bit
We want every design submitted to Threadless to have the best possible chance at being chosen for print. Your submission was declined because we feel your idea could use a little more work to be up to the standard that will give it the best shot. Want some feedback on your design? Post a thread in the forum to get tips and helpful suggestions from other artists!
We hate declining submissions! We hope you take these decline reasons to heart, use them to rework your submission, and resubmit. We’re looking forward to seeing your new and improved design!
Best wishes, The Threadless Community Team
Very nicely put but still a bit ouchy.
Now I’m not writing this to get a barrage of support….maybe just some honest feedback from some fresh pairs of artistic eyes and to let others out there know…rejection…yes it hurts the ego a bit…but it’s not terminal. Dust yourself off and keep going…that’s what I intend to do.
