About the design
on December 30, 2008
In Chinese folk-lore dragons were believed to be responsible for the weather, among other things, so that's the simple idea behind this design. Most of it was illustrated in pen-and-ink, watercolours and coloured pencils so it would have to be simulated process printing. This is for my dad, who lives in the countryside far off in Taiwan.
A special thanks to the wonderful Danielle Kerese (aka DaniellesGarden) for creating the cool flash presentation. Considerable image quality was lost and there was some colour-fading because of the two slides so please check out the links below for larger, high-res presentations of the design and tee placements.

Note - the red stamp in the corner is not part of the design. Traditional Chinese artists use personalized stamps to identify their work. The stamp bears my Chinese name and also my English name if you look closely. :)
