We were approached by Wet Seal to create a co-branded piece, and Pete and I had brainstormed the idea of the shirt not only being "cute," but basically bleeding cuteness out of every orifice. So cute that it made your teeth sting. So I went to Brandi, who had some amazing ideas and sketches almost immediately. Pete and I decided we'd go with a t-shirt, since it just felt right, and we wanted it to be a shirt with a loud, bright character smiling right at you on the front. We loved an idea Brandi had to go with joyful popsicles, so here's what it turned into in the end:
