This piece came into being after I felt the calling to make art after a transformational experience. It occurs to me that the first thing we create after such experiences becomes encoded with that transformation. Whether it's poetry, music, movement, art or whatever it may be for you - it becomes a gift that can be shared.
I somehow felt the nudge to incorporate elements of koi and elements of dragon and then learned about the Japanese legend in which koi swims upstream, following its dreams and aspirations where it eventually reaches dragon-gate and transforms into its higher dragon self. Reminding us to do the same. What a beautiful assignment to work with. The original is all hand drawn with zero computer assistance. It freely flowed through the tip of my ink pen.
This one I call the ‘metamorsafish’ or ‘meta’ top, to spare you the tongue twist. I captured it in mid transformation.
The shirt is meant to fit like a second skin. Its not really a loose t-shirt design and will show off your curves and natural shape.
It is tailored in along the waist and gets bigger around the hips, embellished with elastic rouching around the bottom, it accentuates the female curvy form and will even give the appearance of such even if you do not have an hourglass form and want to give a lil' hip action to a more boyish frame. Yet if you feel a lil' extra squishy in the mid section, it may not be able to wave its magic wand all the way other than helping you embrace the way you are right now regardless of this shirt being perfect for you or not ;) The darker colors will always be more forgiving.

I have had some women concerned about the bra line in the back. I have always had good luck with finding a bra that either looks cute and can peak out a little or finding the one that sits low on the back so it remains invisible. So I am sure you will be able to find one that’s a good match.
