doodlewear ‘Be Kind’ (2021) art printed t shirt by Coromandel Peninsula based Artist Jodi McAuley. This high quality tee features a pop art inspired art print of a woman all in teal wearing a mask with Be Kind emblazoned on it. This artwork was painted in watercolour, gouache and ink. The artist has digitally signed this artwork.
“I wanted to commemorate 2020/21 lockdowns in some way as it has been especially tough on many. I also wanted to make the piece NZ-themed, so I painted a woman of Māori descent wearing recycled rubber Huia feather earrings with native Mānuka flowers on her t shirt. I discovered the inspiration for her mask pattern when I was having a sneaky cup of tea and cameo crème in bed one weekend morning. I’d never looked at them properly before, and the pattern on the biscuit is so lovely! The BE KIND mask reminds us we all need to show kindness to each other, especially during this time, as many of us are struggling and we never know what others are dealing with.”
