Tee Shirt Art Submission

The natural foods co-op where I work recently had a tee shirt art contest. I found a source picture of a child holding a seedling, being held also by her Mom and got inspired. Here are some of my steps in the process.

First I sketched it with pencil.

Then I colored it with Berols and scanned it into the computer.

My son digitally colored it.

Once I had my image, I added text. My submission didn't win - I placed second, but I had a lot of fun with it. I hadn't done anything with my drawing in a long time.

Okay, there you go surprising me once again. I didn't know you could draw and like this to boot. You're talents are boundless. Hands are so hard to draw and yours are beautiful. It's a 1st place winner in my eyes.
