This artwork was created for Operation: Social Justice Warrior (#operationsjw), which was a collaborative charity drive.
In thinking about social justice and being a warrior for social justice, I knew I needed to create someone mythical and heroic, someone strong and beautiful.
While I made the creative decision to cover their chest, this Merperson has at every moment of creating this work, been ungendered in my mind. They are both/and, not either/or. There are intentionally three differently pigmented skin tones available - because visibility matters.
For the life of this design and regardless of what it prints on, 100% of profits will be donated to Lambert House in Seattle.
The tri-blend fabric creates a vintage, fitted look. And extreme durability makes this t-shirt withstand repeated washings and still remain super comfortable.
