I made my sister a shirt for ol' Yule time givings.



Based on the beloved, beautiful comic by Bill Watterson, I screened/stenciled a design of one of the most memorable Calvin and Hobbes strips. I was heavily inspired by the fantastic needlepoint of armaine, and one of the saddest shirts in the world.





The white part of the bird was done with a freezer paper stencil. The black details of the bird and the letters were completed with a PhotoEZ sheet. I liked the shirt so much, I made myself one too!



Looks like I'm not the only one who adore this shirt.

Wow, great job with the details on the bird! That was one of my favorite C&H strips.

That looks fantastic.  What sort of ink/paint did you use for the image?

I used Versatex and Permaset Aqua (I originally got Versatex paints when I received the PhotoEZ kit; I find Permaset Aqua offers more opaque colours, plus I can buy it locally). Either works great with screenprinting and stencil painting (dabbing the paint on with a sponge brush)!
