Our designs are one of a kind and exclusively hand-drawn for Clean Food Dirty Girl by fashion illustrator Cristina Tudor. Cristina describes her inspiration behind the designs.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
I'm Cristina Tudor, the artist behind the Clean Food Dirty Girl T-shirts designs. I'm a Los Angeles-based illustrator and the creator of ct-sketches where I chronicle my journey as a fashion illustrator, T-shirt designer and portrait painter. I am very passionate about creating and bringing beauty into the world! It gives me great pleasure to bring joy and happiness to people by telling their personal stories in a visual way, through my watercolor art.
I am also an architect by training, and my demanding work in the challenging field of architecture often led to unhealthy food choices in the past. A few years ago I started creating a better balance in my life, including eating more plant-based foods. And so I've come to discover and follow Molly Patrick and Clean Food Dirty Girl!
Molly's recipes and compelling stories have inspired me in more ways than one: one weekend, as I made Molly's cheesy sauce, I was inspired to paint this portrait of her using plant-based whole foods, including her yummy cheesy sauce! This was one of those great moments when things I am passionate about, like painting and healthy eating in this case, converge in the most amazing ways!
And the rest is history: Molly, Luanne and I connected, and a wonderful collaboration was born between Clean Food Dirty Girl and ct-sketches! I hope you enjoy wearing and using the merch as much as I did creating them.
