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.
