The Very Greedy Caterpillar Eats Everything in its Path

Over the weekend, Tilteed released this month’s contest winning t-shirt design. The Very Greedy Caterpillar by Wotto (Craig Watkins) is the latest addition to the permanent shop catalog at Tilteed. The design is a fresh twist on a popular children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This greedy caterpillar not only eats fruit but also things that we don’t consider to be edible, including a Magic 8-Ball, a wallet, a cactus, and even a ghost!

In his new interview, Wotto describes his process for The Very Greedy Caterpillar:

“This piece has been knocking around my sketchbook since early 2010. I wanted to do something with that character because the book was read to me many times as a kid. I also wanted to show, in a subtle way the perils of greed. It started the same as most of my work, a doodle in my sketchbook. Over time I added in more details and then finally I worked the design up in illustrator. I cut some of the original elements and added in new ones. I also took out the bright colors of the book because I wanted my piece to be a sharp contrast. Not a parody that just tweaks a small area but a parody that takes the guts of the artwork and runs away with it. As with all my pieces I wanted it to have a dark element and also have enough detail so that each time you wear it you find something new.”
