War Stories - Shirt and Hair Fringe

Worked on the designs that will be on the shirt. Using the theme of War Stories, I'm creating, a story in a pictograph on the shirt of a battle. Then I add hair fringe, giving the name of the shirt as a "Scalp Shirt". The Scalp Shirt was worn by war leaders. Crazy Horse was allowed to wear a Hair Shirt, till he messed around with another mans wife in the tribe and got shot for it. Then it was taken away from him. You have to live up to a certain standard to wear a Hair Shirt.

Back in the studio tomorrow.
