One of the many 'Green Ladies'

An advert for the Green Lady label (US). They made cool t-shirts in the 1990s.
The name Green Lady was an open vessel that we could pour different ideas into’, says the label founder Todd St John. ‘We’d come across the Tretchikoff painting and a similar one by another artist occasionally in thrift stores. Also, there was a Star Trek episode that featured a character that was a green alien woman. These were all of the same era, so we were struck by the fact that these similar images were appearing in multiple places and not sure why.’
