If you were a kid growing up in the 90’s, you probably remember rushing home to the most epic animated opening theme song playing on the Cartoon Network. Yes, I’m talking about Dragonball Z. For a show with dragon in its name, it didn’t have too many scenes with the eternal dragons–Shenron and Porunga. Of course, I’m not mad about that, maybe a little peeved at the100 episode arcs of Goku charging up a spirit bomb. Dragons remain a cultural icon (just look at Game of Thrones) because of how they suggest an ancient, primal power that piques our thirst for danger. That’s why it makes a perfect print to be placed on one of our dangerously soft Triblend T-shirts.
This piece features a fun cartoonish style drawn with distinct outlines, bright colors, and fanciful creatures with exaggerated features. The central theme seems to be a sort of controlled chaos. Notice how there’s no single “correct” orientation for the artwork; you can rotate the canvas 90, 180, or 270 degrees and some of the dragons will still be aligned with your gaze. Each dragon is intertwined with every other dragon and seems to sprout from every side of the frame. Each dragon is clearly differentiated from the other with diverse faces, scales, colors, and designs. Even the background seems to be an abstract pastiche of shapes, a whirlwind of pandemonium. This scene might be at home in a mad LSD induced dream state, with strangely familiar faces surrounding you in a psychedelic world of nonsense. Notice that each dragon has a long, snake-like body, evoking the eastern depiction of dragons, of benevolent gods of good fortune. Overall, it’s a wildly colorful piece with a bright palette and well used shading to enhance the multichromatic energy in the art.
This bombshell shirt is perfect for any fan of fantastical worlds, psychedelic dreamscapes, or just a garden full of friendly pop culture friendly illustrated dragons. Catch up on some shows or wear it around town to start some conversations. The print is centered in the chest area and about 14 inches x 16 inches.

How to Care for Your Sweet ShirtMachine wash cold inside out to protect the print, no bleach. Pretreatment may remain on your made-to-order shirt which will add a harder, rougher texture (it's to help the print look good), the first wash will remove it and make everything nice and soft. Tumble dry low. Iron low, but avoid print.
