I'll play nice and give you genuine advice. Designing graphics for merchandise is just as much about composition, color and line as creating art is. You aren't really doing much with the spaces you're working on. As far as those elements are concerned, I liked the skater hat. It would have been more interesting if you'd done something besides just putting a photo on it, but you're atleast using the space that's available to you there. Some of your tees also are a bit text heavy. That can work if your creating a visual heirarchy, but straight lines of small text aren't going to grab anyone's attention. Don't just consider the words and pictures. Consider the concept you want to communicate. What associations can you make back to that concept? What adjectives come to mind when you think of it? Where does it lead you? Write these things down, and also consider the space that you have to work with. You can do different things with different spaces. How is the space on a tee shirt different from the space on a ball cap? You want to pay attention to things like balancing colors and values.

Post something in the art critique forum. There's lots of honest feedback to be had from traditional artists as well.

Cool Artwork! I tried out Zazzle for several months and not one sale, but good luck! :)

Like the massing in your "Salvador". Not sure where you intend to show a graphic design direction for comment in the remaining work. Grandaddyearl

Yes!
I know how you feel. I too have not made any sales of my art anywhere on line, in many years.
