Are you wearing make-up? Lotion? Sun block? Chances are, you’re wearing the blood of a monkey…several in fact…all those that gave their lives to test those products you apply to your face and your hands and your body. Don’t it feel good?
For those wanting to know more about this image, here’s the artist’s concept: the blood of a test monkey, along with bits and snips of tissue being disposed of through a screen as the monkey dies under the hands of lab technicians charged with testing products for consumers. This is a hand painted digital work, painting on digital interface in Corel’s Painter Classic using a Wacom and stylus. No templates, photos or other enhancers were used, just “raw me,” live on the interface. The cuts necessary to produce a work suitable for printing on a t-shirt here at RedBubble were done using PhotoShop.
Proceeds from the sale of this shirt are donated to Defenders of Wildlife in our battle to save wolves from aerial gunning and from wolf eradication efforts by Idaho governor Butch “Butcher” Otter, as well as for other wildlife causes sponsored by this worthy organization.
