Here it is , my new Fairy T-shirt design!
It’s a great fitted t-shirt – and I am really happy the colour combination worked out so well with the dark purple over grey…our wonderful friend and screen printer Dean did a marvelous job capturing the subtle detail of the design (see my previous post).
I have been looking through my beautiful Art Nouveau books that I have been collecting over the years, and have been inspired particularly by the amazing artist and designer Alphonse Mucha.
His imagery is so beautifully and sensually executed, whilst still being functional – as so many designs of this era were.
