Tell the world how much Abraham Lincoln rocks with this colorful, artistic T-shirt featuring shiny metallic foil and a screen print filling the front of the shirt!

Inspired by the looks of the "hair metal" bands from the late 80s, this shirt features a large portrait of Lincoln made out of shimmery metallic foil, surrounded by ribbons of color. In the background, a bluish spotlight - akin to the spotlights on the stage of a rock band performing live - shines on Lincoln, making his face appear a beautiful shade of shimmery blue!

I based the portrait of Lincoln on this shirt on a large bronze bust of Lincoln that I own that I had decorated for Lincoln's Birthday. I thought it would make a rad T-shirt design, so I did! It's also the first time I've used a 3D object instead of a 2D image as the basis for a Lincoln art piece, and my first design featuring metallic foil. Since foil must consist of large single color areas (no gradients allowed), I had to draw many of the lines in Lincoln's face by hand.

The design is screen printed onto a soft, dark purple, 100% cotton, made-in-the-USA American Apparel unisex T-shirt. The metallic foil is applied using a special glue that is screen printed so that it sticks to the shirt. This colorful, shimmery design fills up the entire front of the shirt, creating an awesome, unique wearable work of art. Rock on Lincoln!

This T-shirt is available in adult small, medium, large, X-large, and 2X-large. Pictures show adult X-large size T-shirt. This shirt is also available in black. T-shirt shown is a sample; you will receive one that has never been worn. These T-shirts tend to run a little smaller than normal; if you're concerned about this, order the next size up.

Washing instructions: Machine wash and rinse inside out, in cold water, in the gentle cycle, with mild detergent. No bleach. Hang dry. Avoid using the dryer (if you do, make sure not to use any heat) since it may cause the foil to lose its luster.
