Morning Cat by TaylorRoss is chock full of scruffy personality, from the feline’s differently sized eyes to his stricken expression and deep under eye bags. He stares back at the viewer with great offense, clearly irked that he’s awake at all. One paw even curls itself into a a rude middle finger gesture, while the other clings to a cup of coffee like its a life preserver. The slogan’s sentiments reflect this, but for me the style the text is rendered in slightly misses the mark. The clarity of the lettering and the smoothness of its rounded lines feels awake and friendly, while I think using a rougher, scratchier look (either on “early” and “friendly” or on the whole phrase) might have conveyed the theme more viscerally. Still a great, wearable shirt though!
