i joined this swap and now that you've all brought up american mcgee, i just HAD to insert my halloween costume (i posted it before, but it's fitting in this thread now!). oh, and that KICKS ASS about the neon dreams movie!!
hi everyone, i thought i'd share the Valentine's Day illustration/card that i made for my boyfriend (it's called Or Else):
i wasn't sure if i should put it here or in the art section, so if i need to move it, just let me know. it was done in adobe illustrator with a wacom tablet (yes, i drew it, it's NOT a photoshop filter) a bigger version is on my website in case anyone is interested in seeing it not so squished.
i got my stuff a few days ago but just now uploaded the pix to my site. i got a kickass box with warm leo colors on it and a lioness stencilled on top, and a brown beaded necklace with a leo charm on it. it was funny because i wear brown on occasion, and the morning i put on my brown warm shirt, i got a fantastic brown necklace to wear with it! i also took a picture of the label because it had leo symbols all over it. thanks freckles! you ROCK!!
so i have all these old band t-shirts that i've been wanting to turn into tank tops (i don't wear big ass t-shirts anymore). keep in mind i've only sewn one other piece of clothing in my life (a skirt from a pattern). this was just me tracing the sides of a tank top i had, making the top and bottom straight across, and then making elastic shoulder straps.
i have 3 others that i've made (2 don't have straps yet) and a whole pile of shirts to go. i'm not good at sewing yet but i think it turned out pretty good!
