First and foremost I am a vegan for myself and the animals, and it is part of my personal journey to finding peace. My vegan path is not about convincing others to go vegan, although I highly recommend it, but by pursuing things that make me happy. These days I enjoy riding my bike, going on hikes when I can, reading lots of books, cooking vegan meals, and working on art projects.
My art has inspired many the designs on the shirts I wear, and through fashion I have learned you can have your own sense of personal style and be a vegan. Sometimes I draw pictures directly on shirts with fabric markers, and other times I use prints of my artwork and photography to create shirts over on Zazzle.
I was never interested in wearing leather even back when I was semi-vegetarian, and now as a vegan I do not agree with it. Rather, I prefer to wear clothing that is not derived from animal products, and wear items that express my sense of style. These ideas continue to inspire the artwork on my Zazzle shop, and I have many shirts available for there if you like what you see.
The cross stitched palm tree shirt is a reprint of an actual cross stitched palm tree that I created. First, I drew a palm tree on a piece of Aida cloth, and then I used embroidery thread to fill in the drawing. Purchase this cool palm tree shirt over on Zazzle.
