"Frustrated On-line T-shirt shopping Turns into a Worldwide Artist Hunt"
2006-07-17 until 2006-12-31
drawmytee.com
Scottsdale, AZ, USA United States of America

This anxious shopper found her own solution by launching a new web idea at DrawMyTee.com, where hundreds of artists worldwide are invited to collaborate their designs on one single t-shirt. Karen Cheng, from Vancouver, Canada set up DrawMyTee.com after failing to find her ideal graphic t-shirt on-line. “By utilizing the web space, I hope to collaborate works of art from individuals with diverse ethnic backgrounds to create a design truly unique and original,” she explained.

At www.drawmytee.com, an artist can submit their design to be placed alongside the works of artists around the world. “The collage inspired concept will appeal to those who have great passion in designing and shoppers who are looking for a unique product. As soon as the designated display area is filled, the t-shirt will be printed for sale.” said Cheng

On the homepage of this self set up website, one can find miniscule versions of the artists’ design marked on a super-sized tee. By clicking through the artwork, the corresponding artist’s photo, profile, thoughts and personal URL will be magnified. Since the debut of DrawMyTee.com, it has attracted people from countries such as South Africa, Cambodia, UK and the US. With artists ranging between the age of 18 to 38.

Cheng believes on-line networking is becoming the locus to innovation. New ideas are created through collective imaginations and active participation. In addition, she feels the emerging generation of cyberspace is about connecting people, thought sharing and mass collaboration.

Asked what she hopes to accomplish from the site, Cheng said, “to connect people worldwide, to capture the creative souls of artists and to create a t-shirt that’s one-of-a-kind.”
