The Fabulous Blue Morpho Butterfly

The Blue Morpho Butterfly on the organic women’s T.

I do some of my best thinking in the butterfly and orchid house at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. It’s the same temperature year round, meaning it’s not only a nice place to hang out on a brisk (for here) 50 degree winter day, it’s also pretty comfortable during an average (for here) 110 degree summer day. Besides butterflies you can also spot tiny orange fish and vivid blue frogs under the foliage, and the hibiscus is always in bloom.

This digital painting took me about 3 weeks. It’s based on the same photograph I used as a reference to draw the butterfly in the comic, of course. I think it’s pretty stunning and would make a nice sticker as well. You can also get it on 2 style of coffee cup. I want to offer it as leggings but you can’t just slap a T-shirt design on a pair of pants, You have to adapt the image to a different kind of space. It’s time consuming. But it’s totally ready to read on your top half.
