So this is a sweatshirt someone asked me to make for her daughter, it was for her birthday and her name is Dahlia, so she wanted a hoodie that said her name and was covered with Dahlias! I was a little worried that the flowers weren't close enough to the real thing (don't they kind of almost look like zinnias maybe?? Huh) but hey, she was happy with them and I think it's kinda neat, so no need to start floggin myself... yet. We did a soft pink tie dye on the sweatshirt first and then I got to work. There's so much paint on this thing it's almost absurd, thank goodness the fabric didn't get hard! This fleece is thirsty...

I don't usually do this kind of work - my airbrushing is usually a little more loose and wild,  (totally anti venice beach style - silhouettes of waves and hearts with your sweat hearts name & date make me  Angry ANGRY!!!!!) so I tend to go with more of a graffiti inspiration. I put in some squiggly bits in the background for more depth, but I dunno, not sure if it really helped at all, I think I could have left it off. My mom saw it and asked me to do one for her too so I guess going to have to experiment in making it more grown up? Anyhoos, let me know what you think!

oooohhh!  nice.  For some reason, the dahlias running up the hood make me especially happy.

I like it, it's unique. Makes me think of when I was 16 and going to the fair and getting a Baja airbrushed  Grin

I think you did an awesome job. The dahlias look exactly like they are supposed to. Perfect for a girl named Dahlia! Nice work.
