Recreation of the first shirt I ever printed and sold myself now in olive green with embroidery "Koysun" front! Compared to the old shirt blank I used, this shirt is pigment dyed which means it will last a long time as every wash beautifully ages and softens the shirt.
**Growing up in South Carolina, I was often outcasted by my non–Asian peers for being raised in a Buddhist family. Seeing nothing but Christian iconography in my life, I illustrated my own images that pertained to my identity as a way to bring out niche depictions only understood by people raised in Southeast Asian communities. Though I don't see myself as a devout Buddhist, burning incense in order to talk to my grandparents comforted my insecurities of being an immigrant far away from any relatives.
