Today’s tee is a weird one, and coincidentally, formally owned by my mother. It is from a museum but I cannot determine if the image is cool or creepy. Every now and then I get inspired by a certain style of cartooning that always has an element of slightly disturbing. I like this mode of cartooning for many reasons. I think it gives innocence and wonder to more mature concepts. I love the color palettes and character styles that come out of these types of cartoons; they are less saturated and more complex than children’s illustrations. I try to make my illustrations more realistic while also allowing for a style to show through. The illustration resting on my tee-shirt is so weird, especially in what the character is doing, but it is also something that makes you want to create a story to give him context. And any opportunity for imagination insertion is well worth taking nowadays. With every answer handed to us on a silver platter, we need to leave some room for mystery of the unknown. We do not have know everything, but we can still wonder and dream about it.
