Here is my final tshirt design for Ming, which is dedicated to all her hard work throughout her career. (Swipe --») .
Over the course of several weeks (4, to be exact), this project took me approximately 24 hours to draw and an hour or so to edit all the components together. It took so long to draw each part because I drew it all by hand (as in, without extra features and even without a stylus). I've worked really hard on this design and I hope that work pays off someday... I made a white version and a black version, though the black version has a really low resolution and I doubt it would look good on a tshirt.
The characters from the top cusp, clockwise, are: Agent Melinda Qiaolian May from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV), Fa Mulan from Mulan (film), Camille Wray from Stargate Universe (TV), Jing-Mei "Deb" Chen from E.R. (TV), Jing-Mei "June May" Woo from The Joy Luck Club (film), Aki Ross from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (film), U.S. Senator Michaela Wen from Eureka (TV), and Chun-Li from Streetfighter (film).
Here's a quick message for @mingna_wen
Throughout your ongoing acting career, you've played a variety of roles--a SHIELD agent, a princess, a warrior, a scientist, a doctor, a Human Resources Department leader (who also is part of the LGBTQ+ community), a daughter struggling with her relationship with her mother, a U.S. Senator--that show your talent as an actress. Through the years, you've inspired more and more people around the world.
I've drawn eight of your most popular roles and arranged them in a heart to demonstrate my love and appreciation for all the effort you've put into your work. I hope you like it and would wear it if I were to be able to give it to you someday.
You are the most amazing and unique role model anyone can ask for. You're kind and strong, yet not afraid to be silly with your....quite interesting jokes. You are persistent and never give up. You've become a huge part of my life and I don't know who I would be without having known about you and meeting you. Thank you so much! I love you ♥
