KilowattKatie Dragon TShirt

KilowattKatie Dragon TShirt
Welcome to Middle Earth Monday and our fabulous giveaway, proudly made here in New Zealand.

Meet Kiwi artist and animator extraordinaire Katie Russell aka KilowattKatie! We first met this talented lady at Wellington’s Armageddon Expo in June 2014. I won’t spoil your fun at reading her biography but will only say she is the friendliest and nicest person you could hope to meet 🙂 She is an artist with a conscience, and a wicked sense of humour.

We have a Katie Russell Assistant Dragon Wrangler tshirt to give to one lucky blog reader.  The ‘Tie’ of our shirt is in shades of yellow/orange/brown and the shirt is sized Women’s XL. (Size 16) – Width 51.8cm, Length 71.5cm – 20.39ins – 28.1ins. As her garments are hand painted, with screen printing inks and then carefully heat set, they have the big plus of being machine washable. Just turn them inside out and cold wash then line dry – easy.

Close Up of 'Badge'
Katie’s unique, wild and quirky work appealed to us immediately and we just HAD to get a tshirt for a blog giveaway. Well it IS animal related – right? Just ask any Harry Potter fan about Dragons!

Finally, we mentioned that Katie is an artist with a conscience, and a strong ethical focus she is proud that the tsirts she uses are NOT sweatshop made. Katie also uses non-toxic, solvent-free, professional screen-printing ink and fabric pens. This has to make this one of THE giveaways to go for – OK guys?! Giveaway closes 19th of July.
