A few months ago, E started a sketch of an elephant with really intricate, lace-like designs all over it. I posted an in-progress photo on Instagram, and was excited to see the final product.
She finished it recently, and took it to show her favorite mentor / fellow artist, R, and R borrowed it for a week and returned it… on a shirt!
E was so jazzed to see her work in print – especially her official “print” name and date that R added at the bottom.
The shirt was printed at Baked T’s in the Loop, a store that R has used quite a bit to print custom t-shirt designs of her own. Here’s a shot of the original and the new shirt. E wore it tonight to youth group, and is planning to wear it on Tuesday when she has art class.
She’s already planning ahead for her friends’ birthday parties – what a cool idea for a gift. The things she creates make me smile, and I love seeing her excited about all of her projects. Her enthusiasm is contagious.
