Ok here we go.

I found a shirt like this on the internet and I thought it was the funniest thing ever, so after a looong time I decided to have a go at it. I'm so happy with how it turned out. also the shirt is a thrifted stretchy shirt form garage, and it's so soft..





next, the Pink Floyd shirt. I knew that I had to make a PF shirt for years probably, but I never knew what to do to make it live up to the legacy of the Floyd. and I refuse to spend time/$ on the cliche prism shirt. so I finally came up with this design. the bottom part is the cover of The Wall cd and the top inspired by a scene in the Wall movie. the spatter was fun but kinda scary to do, since it was the last step and I was terrified of ruining it by then. I think this is my first real multilayer shirt, but I might be mistaken.







and finally, the Beatles shirt. those tiny letters KILLED me. I made Monday night and I wore it today. I think it was worth it. I wanted to have a unique Beatles shirt instead of the typical ones. lyrics are from Happiness is a Warm Gun (obviously). stencil made by me. there was a bit of bleeding, but I don't think that it's too bad, and with letters that small, I'm just happy it wasn't worse. looking at it now, I think I need to go fix the second e in 'Beatles'; it's bugging me.





that's all for now, folks. please comment/criticize/whatever if you want, it's the reason these sites exist.

Holy crap... those are like, the best stencils I have ever seen. I have a Beatles-themed bedroom, and I have like... that EXACT design painted right about my mirror, with the lyrics coming out of the gun... great minds think alike!

thanks so much, you guys!

Holy crap... those are like, the best stencils I have ever seen.

and reading something like that made me do this --> Grin

it makes the hours and hours of work necessary to stencil worthwhile when people that understand what goes into it compliment you. and people ask me, why don't you just buy a Beatles shirt...  Roll Eyes

Those all look great. The PF one is very creative. I think the beatles one would be funnier if it was a syringe instead of a gun... you know cuz rumor has it their not singing about a gun. Anyho, they look fantastic.

oh and wasabipeasrule, I forgot to add this but a Beatles-themed bedroom is one of the coolest things I've ever heard.
shoegazer, I never heard that before.. huh. still, I wouldn't walk around with a shirt with those words and a syringe.. props from the school crackheads is not exactly what I set out for..  Wink
