My name is Dan Kapitan and this is my first Threadless submission. Most of my work is a result of whatever comes into my mind when I put ink to paper and is done free-handed. Animals, nature and the strange are typically what inspire me the most - especially when these elements become intertwined. I began to think about this design as I was walking through a forest that I have grown up beside - as this is usually the best place for me to become inspired. I make my designs by free hand because I believe this makes my designs more personalized and unique.
I try not to attach personal meaning to many of my designs because I love to instead see how they make others feel and what sort of thoughts they inspire.
Hope you enjoy!
