... at least that's what I hope to be this weekend. I'm spending the weekend at my screen printing "studio" (aka my mother-in-law's lake house) which has space in the basement for me to work. (Unlike the basement at my house which I'm too embarrassed to let most people see because it's so full of piles of out-of-season clothes, old toys, mementos, and, mostly, stuff that we don't really need!) [I could go on, but back to my point.] I picked up a big box of new t-shirts yesterday. Grown-up sizes this time. Yup, that's right. Until now I've only printed tees in little kid sizes. Now the big kids (adults) will have their turn, too. After days of staring at all the style and color options available (there are way too many options!!), I selected the ones below. Women's tees are on top. Men's on the bottom. I'm pretty happy with the variety of colors, and I'm hoping there's something for everyone.
In addition to some of the usual print designs (robot and mantis), I'll be printing this screaming alien for the guys. This design is a modification of a drawing my son made for one of his comic book creations, so it's got special meaning for me. Oh, who am I kidding? Mostly, I just think it's kind of hilarious.
The girls will get the robot, too... plus the dandelion. For the third shirt, though, I'm still undecided. I'm planning to make a new screen this weekend -- hand painted instead of burned with photo emulsion. I've narrowed it down to one of the two images below. It'll be printed on the silver tee -- I'm going for a subtler effect here. What do you think?! Do you like the image on the left or right? Maybe neither? I'd love if you could help me decide!!
P.S.: The tees will be for sale at my booth at What's Blooming on Harrison on May 26 and at the Constructor Craft Fair on June 9. If they do well, I'll have them up in my shop after that.
