“In the kitchen”, that title was screaming Cookies!
I am not a fan of using characters or themes used by other designers. I try to come up with unique an never before seen ideas. But after brainstorming a few ideas in my head, I wanted to incorporate the Cookie Monster without drawing the actual character in the shirt. Here is the story of this shirt (Yes, it is a true story, I live with the Cookie Monster):
Me: “Hmm, I am pretty sure there were some cookies left in the cookie jar.”
Cookie Monster: “NOPE! There were no cookies in the kitchen…”
*Awkward silence while I notice the cookie crumbs and chocolate smudges in his shirt.
