Over the past couple of months, I’ve been hard at work on a t-shirt project, and I’m finally ready to share it with the world. Fifty states, one legislative district and nearly as many different birds later and my new collection of State Bird Graphic Tees is now available in my Threadless Artist Shop.
I had some fun creating all the different birds for this collection, including artwork for one extra bird. Did you know there’s two completely different birds called a yellowhammer, well, like me, you do now. Only one of them is actually the state bird of Alabama.
Although it saved me some time in design creation, I was disappointed at how many states have picked the same species of bird as their state birds. Cardinals Mockingbirds and Western Meadowlarks seem to be particular favorites. So many copycats (copy birds?) out there!
I made two versions of each state bird t-shirt one in full color, and one with text and graphic in white. The lettering and graphics have a lightly distressed style for a vintage sort of look. So head on over to Threadless to check out my collection of state bird t-shirts and find your state. Of course, these are also available on sweatshirts, tank tops and more.
