This polyester shirt reminds me of the drawings of Czech anarchist and surrealist artist Toyen. This drawing shown here is from her work entitled "The Shooting Gallery", a series of lithographs from 1939-40 based on her drawings about the Nazi invasion of her country. Toyen has had a big impact on me. These landscapes often enter my mind when dancing Butoh.

Okay, so these dudes in top hats might look more Yellow Submarine to you. Or perhaps Edward Gorey. But I'll call it Toyen-esque.
