When I first drew this smiling heart I was with my one and only heaven-sent sister. We were having an absolute awesome time brainstorming about Tee shirt design possibilities in hopes I could find one to submit to a few choice publishers for “some day.”
I had previously drawn a heart with a smile and called him HT. He was the famed logo of our self published children’s magazine called Hidden Treasures. (a fun story for another time). A few of those magazines were on my desk as my sister and I brainstormed. The front cover always featured HT in various poses and scenes. That’s what led me to wonder if HT on a tee shirt would be a hit.
My sister always said my drawings make people smile…so, HT, as we fondly called him, was revamped a bit, to be better suited for a tee shirt design and other gifts like mugs, totes and wall decoration in kids rooms.
We had high hopes HT would be a hit and he was! He even had his own coloring book that ended up in 8 retail stores.
Back then, print on demand sites weren’t around so I was limited to what I could make for products with my designs on them. Sometimes I wonder where I would be with my art if I could have done what I hoped- but illness struck and more than once.
A few years passed and a new customer searching for a delightful heart design asked me if I had one for a project she wanted me to do. Guess what I pulled out of my archives? Yup! Revised HT.
My intent was to make her a wall decoration but as I looked at it, clearly it needed refreshing and more color.
I got out my acrylic paint and started over with the intent of creating a colorful, whimsical, feminine, must have kind of art piece.
Presto! Now that print on demand shops are a reality, this design is available on mugs, totes, wall decoration, water bottles, clothing, journal covers and so on.
