Threadless’s Old Bones design contest

Get more than skin deep with Threadless‘s new Old Bones design competition. Here’s what they’re looking for…

Everyone has a skeleton beneath all that skin and muscle. Our bones give our bodies structure, protect our organs, and, in many cases, will remain on this earth long after we’re gone. For your next Design Challenge, we want you to make a fresh work of art portraying a day in the life of a skeleton.

Skeletons are ubiquitous in the world of art, so there are many directions you can look for inspiration. Various styles of tattoo art, for example, have portrayed skeletons riding motorcycles and skulls with snakes slithering out of their eye sockets. Keep in mind, just because the theme is “skeletons” doesn’t mean you have to make a dark, ominous design—unless horror is your thing! If not, you can create something a little less bone-chilling, like a vibrant sugar skull or a skeleton immersed in blooming flowers. You could also play up the humor with skeleton puns, or by portraying the Grim Reaper in his daily routine, knocking on doors or living his best life on the beach. Make no bones about it, your creativity is your best ally!
