Happy New Year everyone! Between hourly rounds of blowing thing up on our street I was able to make a few shirts of my latest silkscreen. This is an homage to the British “Keep Calm” poster and my dad’s life long passion for printing. I posted this design in a digital format sometime back and thought it would look nice on a shirt.

This was last Sunday’s bulletin doodle at church, a festive house in a friendly shape.
I also made a new silkscreen for shirts and stuff.
This weekend I was able to knock out a few new projects, namely my first Nerdy Roger shirt, and some pallet trees for my lady. Not my idea, but something she wanted me to make.
Last night I stayed up way too late making some shirts for our worship service crew at church. I got the Speedball starter kit at Michael’s with a 50% off coupon and was using the photo emulsion method. The first time I exposed the screen, even though I followed the instructions, some of the design wouldn’t wash out so I had to completely clean it off and start all over. The shirts came out nice though, and now I can make as many as I want.

Posting has been a little scarce lately, been busy working on some other projects. I always wanted a tuxedo shirt, but for some reason have never gotten one.
We have a great friend that we harass probably too often about being a sad panda (more than likely our fault). I made him a shirt.
My wife had another cute shirt idea for her friend’s little girl, so I got to play around with some heat-transfer vinyl this weekend. In all, it was fairly straight forward, though the silhouette brand’s instructions for how long to apply the iron seemed a little excessive. The silhouette brand vinyl was also pretty expensive, ~$15 for 9″ x 36″. I’ll have to see if I can find a slightly bigger size at a better bargain at signwarehouse.com
UPDATE (7-23-2013): I got an action shot of the little lady enjoying her custom shirt!
