Artist's Description

I usually buy t-shirts as souvenirs wherever I go. I didn’t find one I liked in Miami Beach. The Pink Flamingoes were too cheesy, and overplayed. They now work better in Boston Legal than in Miami. I would like to think that this is the best Miami Beach t-shirt and poster done in Pennsylvania.
This picture is a battle between the realist and surrealist muses of my consciousness. I wanted detail, but I also wanted an Art Deco feel to it. It may look a little “cartoony”, but hey, I am a cartoon. My goal in life is to turn everyday into Saturday morning. And Saturday morning on the beach, when it’s really snowing on a Sunday night , is not a bad reality to have.
My influences are Mucha, Parish, Rousseau, and all the advertisements done from 1900’s to 1960’s. They can be a little cartoony, too.
This a Photoshop piece, and I committed the mortal sin of applying “filters” to get texture in the sand and ocean. Pen tool, air brush, paint bucket were the predominant tools.
