My daughter’s 8-year-old friend is obsessed with bananas – which I found a bit hard to believe. But when her birthday came around and my daughter suggested I make her a banana shirt… I asked her mom and she gave me the thumbs up. So I created this banana design in the spirit of Andy Warhol / the Velvet Underground album cover…. and…. I love it and so did my daughter’s friend. I mean – how many kids have a personalized banana sweatshirt??
