Another Man-Sized Shirt (Custom Order)

Whew! This one has been lying dormant for a little while, due to Christmas secrets; can’t risk letting the cat out of the bag too soon! So, my brothers are all man-sized now. And, as most of my siblings are all grown and out on their own, we do a name exchange for Christmas. This year, I had one of my brothers who is a language-lover. He’s studying cultures and languages and it seemed like a great gift idea to make him a shirt to reflect that!

I decided to go with bunches of translations of the word “Welcome”. Thanks to Google Translate, I can be sure I’m spelling things correctly (though, I admit to being less than certain that these are the correct form, but it’s the thought, right?). Here’s the list of languages I came up with:

Welcome:

Mirëseardhje – Albanian

Arabic:

ترحيب

স্বাগত – Bengali

欢迎 – Chinese

Fáilte – Irish

Bienvenue – French

Mai – Maori

καλωσόρισμα – Greek

Benevento – Italian

환영- Korean

Akeyi – Haitian

And here’s the end result:

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
