You guys, I am so excited to announce the launch of my T-shirt designs for Clean Food Dirty Girl! Check them out here.
I've been collaborating with Molly Patrick and Luanne Teoh of CFDG for T-shirt designs for a few months, and we have 10 winners ! For the process and path that led us here, check out my previous posts here, here and here.
My artwork is now available on the CFDG website for T-shirts, mugs, totes, caps and other merchandise.
And while you're there, subscribe to Molly's newsletter for weekly whole foods, plant-based recipes. Molly's emails are full of wisdom, great advice and touching stories, always infused with a healthy dose of humor. I love getting her email every Saturday in my inbox and trying new recipes! I've made a whole bunch of her healthy and delicious recipes such as the Cheesy Sauce, Tahini Crack (aka T-crack), Rich Dessert Bites and the Simple Veggie Bean Soup, just to name a few.
So head on over to Molly's website to check out some yummy recipes and to see all 10 of my artwork designs in action :-)
Thank you so much Molly, Luanne and Clean Food Dirty Girl for allowing me to tell your story! What a fun and captivating experience!
Beets are one of the most nutritious veggies out there, and every time I cook or juice them, I fall in love all over again with their rich red, almost purple color! It's like nature's best watercolor! So for this T-shirt, I made the humble beet the ambassador for the Clean Food Dirty Girl message to eat more 'whole food plant based' foods.
You can take the girl out of the 'dirty', but you can't take the 'dirty' out of the girl! In this tongue-in-cheek design I wanted to play with layers of puns and to bring in references personal to Molly. I used the turquoise color of her fab headphones for the bathtub and added the kitty, since she loves cats so much. But this may be the only time you'll ever see Molly anywhere near a chandelier!
Molly's cheesy sauce, one of my favorite Clean Food Dirty Girl recipes, is what brought us together and is what started this fun collaboration. So I definitely wanted to design a T-shirt featuring this golden yumminess.
Every time I get one of Molly's emails with a new recipe, I get hungry. Like in 10 seconds flat! Like, feed me now!! This is what I picture when I think of Clean Food Dirty Girl: a mouth always hungry for tasty and nutritious plant based food.
This is my view of the Clean Food Dirty Girl chick: she has an edge, and she's not afraid to show she cares about her body and her well being. She's proudly wearing a whole foods plant based statement earring to show who she is. We are all complex being with varied interests and so is the CFDG community. Don't be afraid to express who you are, in any way that rings true to you!
T-Crack (Tahini Crack) was a popular suggestion for a T-shirt from so many of you. This is one CFDG insider joke you'll be happy to explain every time! I was inspired by Molly's consistent message to practice self-love and self-acceptance and to act the same towards others. I used a rainbow of pride colors as the background for the T-Crack message as an extra layer of meaning that felt so appropriate and uplifting for this T-shirt, and also as a personal touch to Molly and Luanne's story.
As soon as the T-shirts went up in the store, I ordered a test sample, and it was so exciting to get the package in the mail and trying on my very first T-shirt design :-) Super psyched!
