Mermaids are Very Possessive

This is a plain white v-neck shirt from Gadzooks, cost me a total of $3.50. Inspiration for the shirt came from the Japanese anime Pet Shop of Horrors. I watched this episode years ago, Despite them being mildly morbid, something about it artistically struck me. A look into the process I used for this project, instead of sketching freehand on the shirt i decided to sketch on paper first and then trace the image onto the shirt with fabric pens. Then I began to paint the image with Jacquard Fabric paint. The extra items on the shirt where free handed in like the fish and jellyfish.

Sketch of the Day!

African Elephant in 2hb Pencil. This one was fun to sketch mostly because it reminded me of these cute little elephants my mom used to draw for us as kids.
