Sealion Pals

Medium: Watercolor, Digital/Photoshop, Image Size: 12”h x 21″w, T-shirt Image Size: 8″h x 14″w 2002.

This design was created as an apparel design for T-shirts for the coastal market. I thought this would make a nice, active sealion design. Sealions enjoy each other’s company and can often be seen lying together on rocks or beaches. Though they are clumsy and awkward on land, they are skillful and graceful swimmers. They are highly adapted aquatic carnivores with streamlined, torpedo – like bodies, and legs modified into flippers. They hunt fish, mollusks, and squid.

Painted in watercolor. Scanned into the computer and floated. Digital painting and enhancements, graphics, colors, effects, and text were done in Photoshop.
