This design is part of the shirt design challenge Huey's Quest: Fruit of the Dragon that continues until February 22nd, 2023. This shirt is a preorder and will ship after the contest ends if the design reaches over 10 sales. If the design doesn't reach the minimum, all orders will be refunded. Let's support these artists so everyone has a successful quest! 

  • Shirts are printed on 100% cotton unisex shirts.
  • Due to the small size of our business, all sales are final.


  • When I read Huey's story - about eating dragon fruit and becoming a dragon - I was reminded of werewolf myths.

    I wondered - what would a fruit look like that could bite you back?  Whose bite would have unbelievable transformative properties?  It turns the phrase 'you are what you eat' onto its head.

    The design started by actually carving a dragon fruit by hand, photographing the carving, then using those images as the springboard for my illustration.  In the process of carving, I observed up close the marvelous textures of the different parts of the fruit - the waxy peel with its dramatic color changes, the juicy inside full of seeds and the tiniest of fibrous threads. The original photographs of my carving can be found on my Instagram @tysoncreation if you want to see what inspired this design!
