Womens Graphic T-Shirt: Water
David, a member of our community of artists, is back with a fantastic new design for us. His previous design for us was the India Calling graphic tee which went down really well with the ladies. He's now chosen to do Water, a design with extremely intricate lines, these printed t shirts should go down a treat with both the guys and the ladies!
Here is what he had to say:
"I chose water, its a recurring theme in a lot of my work, so I jumped at the opportunity. The sea really inspires me, something about the mystery and power of it. The design was inspired partly by the myth of the Kraken, the great octopus like sea monster that could bring down whole ships"
More from this collection
"Aether is called the Fifth Element, but to me it is the first, or the zero, or the center element which is why I placed my design close to the heart. The symbol I chose is a Dodecahedron, the Platonic solid that represents Aether. It is the born center of all elements and the essence of all things in the material world. It moves in circles."
Her take on Air:
"For the elements collection, Invisible air was given a form through the peacock in a gush of wind blowing up paper planes and cranes, with a few dragonflies looking on, the movement of the wind reminding us that everything is transient."
We tried all sorts of placements with this design - on the shoulder, the side and the back but then decided it was best to keep it simple - Keep all the attention on the Monkey!
The monkey within. Cheeky, in your face and only let out on special occasions.

Here is another one of our favourites, The Creator of Legends - The beginning of a millenary legend...
Inspired by the book, The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha and famous sketches of Don Quixote done by Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.
This design looks to pick out the essence of the epic character who is Don Quixote.
"My take on element earth was developed from the idea of the divide between the man and nature. The big city life vs. the wild and natural form of existence.
We tend to get carried away with our lives in the concrete jungle – chasing a material life while on the flip side, we never really tend to appreciate the beauty around us."
