a little about this design. this was inspired by and is dedicated to my grandma. she recently turned 80 and i wanted to do something special for her. i asked her to fold paper cranes for me--like when i was little--and i created this photo collage with photos i took of her bonsai trees in the backyard and an old photo i found of her when she was studying at the nursing school. All the elements in the design is a little part of my grandma :)

this is for the threadless loves revolution contest and this is the first time i'm using photoshop for a submission. i'm more of a vector illustrator, so this design is totally out of my element.

special thanks to Julia/Sonmi for modeling.

Maybe someone already said it (I'm too lazy to look through over 100 comments) but it kind of reminds me of the art on some kind of Asian currency. Nice job.
