Ghost Anchor Tshirt
Well true believers, I have decided to post again since I made a new tshirt for my shop. This design is kind of personal. It is based off of an old bookend that was given to my father by my mother. My father was in the Navy during Vietnam, and when my parents first got together, my mother gave it to my dad as a gift. I now own this, and it inspired me to create a drawing based on the piece. I guess it reminds me of my parents, and an anchor remains stable in turbulent waters. I guess its a life lesson of sorts. I am actually going to get this drawing as a tattoo ( my first) in the near future.
I originally made this as a linocut print(the big one near the header of my blog) on handmade paper which I have for sale in my other etsy shop: onitisfineart. I took it a step further and thought the old school nautical image would make a cool tshirt. I redrew the image in pencil and used my trusty Faber Castell Ink Brush Pen to finish it. So now it is a nifty new tshirt in my Etsy shop.
