2  Vaughn Bode IPOD Nano Cozy. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Pi314 on: March 01, 2009 05:53:27 AM
I bought my first ever Ipod last november.
Then after getting it, I pouted around at all the prices of the Ipod covers.
$24 bucks for something I can only use on one item, and it's ugly?
No thanks WalMart.
(But thanks for your cheaper Ipod prices than I could find anywhere else).


So I went home, found some fuzzy fabric, and an old tshirt and went to work.

I sewed it by hand, because my sewing machine is outta commission Undecided
But it's got a fuzzy inner sleeve that can be removed (to wash the outside), and the outside is just painted tshirt, stitched around the edges, with a little flap and button closure.

I'm really into the art of Vaughn Bode, and since I made it red, I decided to jazz it up with a
little hand-painted cheech wizard. Didn't use anything fancy, just acrylics.

Thanks for looking!

3  Graffiti handstyles, Steezin' screen printed shirts. in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by Pi314 on: February 26, 2009 11:55:30 AM
Hey, so I'm officially new to the boards, (tho i've been lurking forever), and have decided to actually join and make up for lost time by posting some of my stuffs. (and some of the bfs as well)

Anyway, we're ridiculously lucky enough to work at an amazing screen printing shop with two close friends of ours. We print mostly for Canadian and Indie bands, and I do the designs/separations.

And, our boss, being the angel he is, understands our artistic impulses, lets us use the shop on weekends for whatever our little hearts desire, providing we clean up, of course.

Anyway, the boy and I were really just itching to make shirts, so this is our first project that we did a while back.
We're both writers, this is our handstyles. We put them on shirts and foiled them and stuff.

We have the unfair advantage of an actual shop at our disposal, but it's all manual (not ballin' enough for an automatic press) and a pretty involved process from start to finish, as you all know.

5  Longtime Lurker, First time Poster! Wacom tablet drawing. IMG HVY. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Pi314 on: February 26, 2009 08:25:07 AM
Hey everyone,
So I can't even tell you how long I've lurked on this site... years... YEARS!

I'm a 24 year old illustrator/graphic designer living in Toronto.
I have a sweet job at a screen printing shop with my bf where we can make tshirts to our hearts content!

Anyway, 2009 is my year of getting my stuffs together and getting more involved in the arts community online.
I also want to explore doing my own thing more, and honing my skills.


Finished piece (larger view at bottom of post)


This is the photo of a mannequin at Le Chateau that started it all.


Starting to get my forms/shading down


BW version, changed hair, added bkgd, texture to the skin, etc...


Finished Piece! Took about 10+ hours, but I'm really happy with the results.

As I mentioned, this is my first tablet illustration, so any comments/critiques/tips would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys, looking forward to getting more on the boards!
