She is very stylized of course. It's more saleable that way...

I must say, I would not only buy it but probably wear it quite a lot. It's such a beautiful image, but it is also delightfully silly.

Thanks! It actually took me a while to figure out that I was riffing off of Kermit the Frog's "It's not easy being green" song. LOL!

It's a tad to girlie for me to be completely honest. I tend to wear shirts with robots, bones, or vegetation on them. That being said, I would most likely buy it for a friend. Any other designs on the way?

Well, I'm thinking of designs for Queen Elizabeth and Julius Caesar, to round out my little royalty series. Then I'd like to do a Nautilus design for a friend, and maybe a T-shirt with a "It's turtles all the way down" theme. I'm totally booked at the moment though work-wise, so this will probably have to wait until May or June until I can get going on this.

Nautilus is win. I doodled a pic of one for my friend Jen on register tape from work with the title "THE NAUGHTY NAUTILUS: Lusty lords of the Deep." Haha.

The It's Turtles shirt is an amazing idea. Makin' shirts is fun. I need get on the shirts I've been planning this summer when I have the space in my new place. I have been meaning to make a "President of the 'Shut Up About the Woodland Trust' Trust" Shirt and redo my "I'm Dandy Thanks for asking" one.

Can't wait to see what you do next.

"The Naughty Nautilus"- LOL!

The joke "It's turtles all the way down" always makes me laugh. Plus, I think turtles are adorable. Re: the Nautilus tee my friend wants me to do is the giant squid wrapped around the Nautilus with the caption "Got Squid"? Unfortunately she wants to sell it on Cafepress, and I've heard nothing good about Cafepress t-shirts. Hopefully I can talk her out of that.

How do you make your t-shirts? Do you use screenprinting?

The first time I heard the turtles story it was out of Stephen Fry's mouth so I always hear it in his voice.

I was going to whip up a shirt and test drive it with Cafe Press when I get my finances back in order to see how they stack up. For now I have been making shirts in a number of ways. Iron on Transfers, free hand fabric inks (The kind you use in screen-printing) sports letters (I made my T-rex shirt that way) and whatever else comes to mind after I have decided on the design. I can't afford the money or space for a screen printing set up, and the tutorials online I have found for simpler Screen printing seem to have results that are not much better than the stamps and stencils I've been using so...we'll see maybe someday.

Are you going to post any of your tee designs here on dA? I'd love to see them!

I took a screen printing class at my old art college, but the vats of chemicals weirded me out, and I ended up dropping it. Ah well!
