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


Laura wanted the tagline in this print. At first I didn’t get it but she reminded me of a silly thing I once feared: if you swallow a watermelon seed it will grow into a watermelon in your belly.

She and I consider this shirt a public service announcement to children of reading age.

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.
