At my last art show, I was shocked at the number of people who wanted my kids Cool Cats Wear Glasses t-shirt in adult sizing. I shouldn't be though - cats are the sweetest, most loveable creatures, so who wouldn't want to celebrate kitty cuteness on a t-shirt? I printed my drawing of our kitten, Scratchy, on adult sized, organic cotton t-shirts, and I'm so happy with how they turned out. These t-shirts are a different material than the kid version, but I did keep the color green. I think it adds whimsy to the design.
Americana Birds is inspired by my grandmother's house. My favorite Christmas ornament she had on her tree was a hand sewn, embroidered bird. The decorative stitching made it so special, I used to marvel at how thread could look so ornate. Hanging in her kitchen window was a twig formed into a simple wreath. I changed that wreath from a circle to a heart for sweetness, and added a pair of ornate love birds on top. My favorite part of this is the woodgrain of the branch heart.
A look at my drawing:
You can find these tees on my website, and I will be bringing them with me to my next show, Handmade Holiday in Richmond, VA on December 2 and 3rd. Hope to see you there!
