Ninjas and birds. You think they don’t have anything in common? Well you thought wrong, sucka. Both are skilled assassins trained in deadly martial arts and–nah, I’m just foolin’. The artist for this design lives near Don Edwards SF Bay Wildlife Refuge, where you’ll see much marsh wildlife, including these flighty swans. Obviously, swans don’t form perfect geometric shapes like they’re making Voltron; this pattern is arranged for aesthetics on one of our feathery soft Triblend T-shirts.

The design starts with a photograph of a local swan taking flight, background carefully masked out, duplicated, and arranged into a fan-like shuriken shape. By purposely composing the swans into a geometric arrangement, the Surrealist collage highlights the natural lines apparent in a swan’s body shape. There’s an imposing of mathematical order on forms found in nature; a sort of nod to the nature of artifice. It also just looks cool and trippy, like a snake-headed pinwheel. Notice that a blue color cast has been applied to the birds, adding a uniformity and aquatic mood to the composition. The whites appeal nearly teal and the darks are shades of indigo. Relaxing.

If you enjoy local wildlife and open spaces or the simple grace of a swan’s lines, this aquatically-avian T-shirt is right up your alley. Take it out on your next hike through the wilderness and contemplate your hubris in the grand scale of nature.

This diamond shaped print is centered on the chest and measures about 13 inches x 13 inches.

Sizing & Fit

model wearing triblend t shirt
Fashion slim fit follows the body gently without being too tight or too loose. Just right, we'd say.
Our shirts have a slimmish, tapered fit that isn't too tight or too loose. Slim fit varies a lot between brands, but we'd consider this in the slim family, with enough roominess to be comfortable. Some call this fashion slim fit or semi-fitted.
Protip: Prefer something with a roomier fit? Just order 1 size up!

How to Care for Your Sweet Shirt

Machine 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.
