Every now and again I come across a tee that deserves talking about for reasons other than it somehow fitting in with the weirdness in my head. And this is one of those. This Elephant T-Shirt features wonderful design that ought to be celebrated.
I like elephants. Not as much as I like monkeys. Or cats. But I put them on a par with bears so that’s a pretty good place to be in my estimation of things. But rather than ramble on about the finer points of pachyderms, I’m going to ramble on a little about the sheer quality of this design. First of all, the colours of this t-shirt are spot on. On the white background, the subdued tones stand out and really grab the eye. They soft grey of the elephant is almost hidden behind quiet bursts of flowers, stems and leaves, really bringing the animal to life. Then the trunk, elongated and twisted to resemble an ampersand in which a woman happily sits, at rest, in peace with nature, makes for a beautiful twist (literally and figuratively). It’s just a delight to look at. Like the elephant itself, it walks softly, committing no sin and with very few wishes (well, what else could you wish for with this design?). It was created by Huebucket and I for one think it’s one of the finest tees I’ve seen. What’s more, the whole range is splendid.
You can get your own from Huebucket’s BigCartel Store, where it costs just $22.00. It’s available in small and medium sizes and only in white. Worth every penny!
