2010 Sea-Bean Symposium T-Shirt
Design by Nan Rhodes
of www.BeachBeans.com

This year’s T-shirt again features the artwork of our own Nan Rhodes with her ever popular sea-bean characters heading into space—The Final Frontier and last chapter in the story of Nate nickarbean, Howie heart, Paco purse, Sandy starnut, and Hobie hamburger! Nan’s design also commemorates (the end of) the Space Shuttle program in Florida which, along with our beaches, has become an icon of the Space Coast.
