I was a voracious reader as a child.  Everything I could get my hands on, which morphed into a preference for Science Fiction and Fantasy.  I first read an X-Men comic when the original series was busting out into the Uncanny X-Men with Wolverine, Colossus, Banshee, Storm, etc brand new to the world.  What outsider kid couldn’t identify with the misunderstood, shunned mutants?  I liked Storm even before I picked up on her symbolically as an expression of the earth mother.  When I wanted to make an earth mother type shirt for myself, this image of Storm is what popped into my thoughts, so of course I had to translate it into reality.
