okay, i created this one some time ago but never got around to posting it.  i think it's my favorite stencil so far:


it's a ralph barton illustration of lorelei lee from gentlemen prefer blondes, one of my all-time favorite books.

hope you like!

WISTED!!

I love Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (and But Gentlemen Marry Brunettes, which isn't as good as Blondes but is still fun) and I absolutely adore Ralph Barton's illustrations for them.  I don't know why it never occurred to me how great they would be on, say, a shirt!  You are a genius!

I like that you included the quasi-credit. Classy.

thanks for all of the kind words, everyone!  i really didn't expect that this stencil would be so well-enjoyed - i thought it was kinda niche.  well, i guess stenciling itself is somewhat niche, so i should have known better!

tia, sorry, i don't have a digital stencil i can share.  i went kind of low-tech on this one:  made a zoomed-in photocopy and colored in the cut-outs with a black sharpie.  Wink  you can pick up a copy of the book with these illustrations pretty cheaply, though - i highly recommend, since the book is well worth reading!

there are tons more of ralph barton's illustrations that i can't wait to try out.  again, thanks for all of the kind words - so appreciated!
