During my reshuffle earlier this month I was considering consigning this character to scrap, I think he looks awful on white T Shirts (yes yes I know). I was encouraged to try him on different colour T Shirts. Quite like him on different shades. He has a whiff of the graveyard shift about him and he looks alright on zombie brown shirts doesn’t he?
We had a celestial bird stature at Moons yonks ago called Fuenhang or something. The character crept into the Tales of the Blue Moon as a regular foil for the bar staff. I later found out through Wikipedia there is a celestial bird in China called Fenghuang. By that time we were already calling the character Fuen for short, and this was my doodle of her.
No celestial feathers were ruffled in the making of this T Shirt.
A character after initial doodle I dumped on Flickr and ignored. I later got told by a few people that it was their favorite doodle of mine. Getting it into a high rez image was really hard though. The original doodle is about 2cm high. It was tiny. No matter how I upsized and vectored her she always had little bobbles on her lines. After some shouting, swearing and bashing the laptop about, I got the bobble lines into semi bobble lines that I loved. The result ended up on the T Shirt above.
“Urgh I have another session today” grumped Ailsa.

“What are you seeing a therapist for?” asked Autumn.
“He says I have a pre occupation with vengeance” said Ailsa. “We’ll see about that…”
