Making my own Tee Shirts

Dharma Shirt

You may have seen a couple of them already, but the last few of weeks, I have been spending my free minutes making my own tee shirts. I'm basically using the typical stencil method, but until recently I didn't know about using Spray Mount to get the stencils sticking to the shirt and I use acrylic paint rolled on with a sponge brush and not spray. I have also been printing on clear transparency sheets and cutting those, but am thinking of switching to paper since, apparently, transparency is a rare and precious commodity right now ($30 a pack??). Here are some process pictures of my Dharma shirt. If you are interested, you can get all of the vectors I've used on the tees site. Enjoy!

Type Blend Icon – Preview
The lovely geometric type icon I made during the DFP Lecture today. Simple and customizable, but after continually seeing all of the pretty things that James White keeps putting out, I really just wanted to make something colorful. The icon is entirely vector, which was really difficult to achieve with the color blending of the ...
Day #10 – Black
As much as I dislike clothes shopping that doesn’t happen in a thrift store, I needed a specific set of items for what I planned to wear to Stephanie and Colby’s wedding and Goodwill wasn’t cutting it. I had to make a couple of different stops around the loop and borrow a black suit jacket ...
