While shark shirts are still present as one of summer's top street style statements, Leonie Brailey's illustrations have created a delightfully sweet 'Sharks of Perth' charity t-shirt.

Not only is the shirt attractive, it sports a proactive cause to preserve the various types of sharks found off the coast of Western Australia. The Melbourne-based artist and musician illustrates different types of sharks with playful expressions allowing each to adopt their own personality.

Though the concept weighs in on a grand environmental issue, it poses a solution that's closer to home and raises awareness of the problem at hand. Last year about 104 sharks have been caught using baited drum lines for no good reason. With every purchase, $10 will be donated to The Australian Marine Conservation Society, which works to preserve the creatures of the sea.
