Shrine Gate Mugs
This design was what originally sparked my interest in creating t-shirt designs and it was probably the most time consuming to create. This design was created using an image from my trip to Japan. This image was taken at the Itsukushima Shrine, also known as the Great Torii. The shrine is located on an island which is inhabited by deer which are very friendly to people. I waited in the rain for thirty minutes to get this image of the deer, and in the original image, I have the Great Torri framed in on the left side of the deer's head. The kanji "厳島神社" and "レトロディア" on the shirt says "Itsukushima Shrine" and "Retro Deer."
