This one was the second design I entered into the Gravity Falls T-shirt design contest over at WeLoveFine (voting has started, by the way! Get on over and get your vote on!)
With each of my entries, I wanted foremost to avoid all the cliches, like memes, or gags right out of the show. People don't tap into what makes the characters who they are nearly enough. Mabel's sweaters are such a huge part of her character, but not enough attention is given to the fact that she knits them all herself. So, I wanted to give Mabel her dues, because not every 12-year-old can knit themselves a new wardrobe.
