Bear with One Another

Design description

Ephesians 4:2 tells us to "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." Inspired by retro-style prints and art from the 1950's and 1960's, I couldn't help but think of a play on the word "bear". Sometimes we all need a big bear hug, and it's a great way to show that we love one another, just like these bears are doing!

Thanks for all the love everyone- I've been exploring more retro styles lately and this is one of my personal fav's, so I'm glad to see it's being well received. Thanks to Enthos clothing- HUGE inspiration for me lately!!!

Well, I do highly admire Enthos clothing-Le Loup is crazy talented- we talk design together every once in awhile. ;)

I forgot to add on my last comment that I think you should make a guy's version of this. I know the shirt has hearts and stuff on it but I think it could still work as a guys shirt, I don't think it's too girly.

That's funny that Le Loup commented on this design because I thought that it looked like the same style of his clothing company "Enthos". 5/5

thanks everyone for the amazing feedback! I was definitely going for a retro, vintage woodcut/ letterpress feel, hence the texture and imperfections. I can assure you, there will be no 'dirtiness' on the shirts- just a little texture. I just love designs with a little bit of grunge. ;)

Love the design, but the yellow of the tee looks dirtied around the design, which would put me off buying it...

Talk about wordplay! I love this design for several reasons. First of all it's message is extremely vital and greatly portrayed through the artwork. Secondly, I've been deeply studying Ephesians this month and if you check out the verses on my shirts, you'll see they've lately been from there. Lastly, if hand drawn, those bears rock! haha great job. 5 all the way! (:
