The road isn't that long... he has his home on him. ;-)

I like that there's a general "journey" theme so I could wear this anytime. LOVE the work! It just lays out beautifully on the shirt.

True... it leads to the question is home where the shell is? Or where the heart is? Or the other turtles? Now I'm mixed up;)

Thanks very much jerberry, that's what I was going for - an anytime design. So glad you like the way it lays on the shirt, I redid the road many times until this version.

Re: The Long, Slow Road Home


The shell could be a quite a bit shorter - I've never seen such a high turtle shell before - and maybe it could have like a compartment door for luggage - but that'd be harder to draw, and less immediately understandable.

This design knocks ramy's out of the arena - well, if it had been worthy of being there at all anyway - and I do love turtles. I'm glad this one ISN'T cute-ified to death, and dig the journey theme and yellow (brick) road.

@icymallard - It's pretty cute. The eyes are a tad bit menacing to me though, I'd rather them closed or some other way. How about you?

@fairnymph - I've seen some high turtle shells, but this one might be a bit higher than those;)

Thanks so much, glad you like it!

This very accurately describes the way it feels for me to drive back home to my parents. I feel just like that turtle.
A lovely illustration.
