Happy Birthday, Tinkie!


I'm such a proud Mama... eight years ago, my little girl, Tinkie, was diagnosed with Liver Disease. Typically a fatal illness, we've continuously invested everything imaginable to ensure the quality of her life, her survival. From weekly doctor appointments and handfuls of daily medications to the small fortune that quickly accumulated with each and every blood draw and biopsy. Some people might deem it an absolutely foolish notion to devote so much time and effort into their pet... but I'm not one of those people. She's a beloved part of my life, and against all odds, today we celebrate another birthday with her.

Happy Birthday, Tinkie!

Congratulations, and Happy Birthday to Tinkie.
Some people don't understand how meaningful a pet can be, almost like a child. I've seen that kind of relationship for my sister, who has never been able to have children. Her husband has been out of the country completing his schooling to be a doctor, and that dog has really saved her from being lonely.
As a note of interest, they purchased the dog together, so I believe that the dog is also like a piece of him that remains.

Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
