About this T-Shirt

In this design I was playing around with the concept of how people judge one another. I chose to do this in a paint-by-numbers style so that at first glance, people have no choice but to judge where which colors go. The purpose of which is to prove them wrong.
I tried this on several people, most of which assumed she had a pink shirt and blue eyes and blond hair, which is partially right, but not quite.
A person has to get to know this shirt before they realize she has pink and blue hair. At which point, they know her true colors.
This shirt is a physical representation of the personal judgments we make on others, especially those who appear different.

This is what the image would actually look like if she were colored in.

special thanks to johnston photography and Loriel Andre’a for their help and professionalism in my artistic process!
