I thought about how to convey Snoopy with a minimum of expression. As a result, I expressed Snoopy using only border lines.

The theme is summer, and I wanted to create a summer-like design for this T-shirt.

Third Prize

Teppei Koda

The theme of this work is "a few years after the world depicted in the cartoon PEANUTS". I expressed my wish that the relationship between Snoopy and Charlie Brown would remain unchanged forever in a single frame of a casual, everyday life.

Each winning design had some unique quality that stood out to me, either in its design approach or in the way that it made me see the characters in a different way. UTGP is fun and exciting for the designers, and for the fans.

I like this design the best because it has a sense of freshness of clouds on a blue sky.
I always liked my t-shirts to tell a story even from far away and this achieves it with a happy vibe that people from all around the world can understand.
