Part of a series of tank top prints for Laura. Includes Smugglin’ Turtles, Watermelon Seeds, and Copying.


Of the series this design came to me the most naturally—I knew I wanted jaws clamping down on the words “Mama Bear.” The whole thing was realized on the first try.

I want to give credit to this fantastic Shaun of the Dead font that inspired me to take an otherwise heavy sans-serif and tastefully bear claw it up.

Our good friends at World of Strange print shirts. We wanted to announce our pregnancy to them in a fun way so I made custom prints that they knew would be for Laura. I zipped them up and sent them along figuring the designs would tell our story. We were not disappointed.
