here are a couple tees i made last summer for some friends, they are both acrylic (plus textile medium) on some plain 100% cotton tees...totally had a blast making them.

this one was a quick project, cuz she was leaving to go home the next day, so i put the creative juices into overdrive. stayed up late to finish it, but it was definitely less than 10 hours total...
it's her nickname with a tree, drew inspiration from a pic i took of the shadow of a tree...strange, huh?

this monster took about two weeks, off and on, because i was being a perfectionist....
i took forever on the design, kept redrafting/drawing with a fabric pen before i put any paint on the shirt...
not sure how long it took to actually paint, i kept working in small amounts and changed the design continually.

thanks for looking, lemme know whatcha think!

I really dig these! Nice job! :] The circle designs on the yellow one are so neat, as is the tree.
