T-Shirt Tuesday: Bufflehead Sketch

Posted on December 28th, 2010 in T-Shirt Tuesday

The Bufflehead is a small species of duck native to North America. This week’s highlighted t-shirt, Bufflehead Sketch, features a Bufflehead in flight, flying away. The rough black-and-white sketch coveys motion and the beauty of a duck in flight. The design is distressed for a vintage look on certain products. Both versions are shown below.

The weekly T-Shirt Tuesday feature on this blog will go on hiatus in 2011. However, t-shirts and other products may still be featured from time to time.

T-Shirt Tuesday: Peregrine Falcon sketch

Posted on November 2nd, 2010 in T-Shirt Tuesday

I’m posting this week’s highlighted t-shirt, Peregrine Falcon Sketch, in light of a neat story I saw on the news this morning. It seems the British Olympic sailing team has been suffering from nuisance gulls hanging around their ships. The noise disrupts the athletes’ rest and acidic gull droppings damage the vessel. They have a new teammate on board to help them with the problem – Felix, a Peregrine Falcon. You can read all about Felix here: Olympic sailors get help from a feathered friend .

Peregrine Falcon Sketch is a black-and-white pencil-style drawing of a Peregrine Falcon in a stoop. Peregrines are the fastest creatures on earth, reaching speeds of up to 200 mph while diving for prey. This stylish design looks great on both dark and light apparel. On light apparel, you can also choose a weathered design for a vintage look.

Posted on October 12th, 2010 in T-Shirt Tuesday

T-Shirt Tuesday: Alpha-code Ovals

Posted on October 5th, 2010 in T-Shirt Tuesday

This week’s highlighted t-shirts feature bird alpha-codes in Euro oval sticker style. These were designed for oval bumper stickers, but the design works on t-shirts and apparel as well. There are 16 species to choose from, and your requests are welcome! Shown here are GHOW (Great-horned Owl); IBWO (Ivory-billed Woodpecker); and MAFR (Magnificent Frigatebird).

T-Shirt Tuesday: Be My Voice

Posted on September 14th, 2010 in Charity, T-Shirt Tuesday

Today’s highlighted shirt comes from a collaborative shop by Zazzle designers to benefit the Wildlife Rehabilitation & Nature Preservation Society. Proceeds from sales from ArtVsOilSpill go towards wildlife rescue in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster.

All of the lovely artwork featured in the ArtVsOilSpill shop is worth a look. I’ve chosen Great Blue Heron by Jane Freeman to highlight here. The lovely artist image of a Great Blue Heron head in profile is captioned with “Be My Voice.”
