My friend John Preble made this shirt for the Louisiana Bicycle Festival, which he founded. I love the image, but a unisex white shirt from Hanes is a little touristy for me. Im a traveler, and I dont like to look like an idiot. John, this is how your shirts would look if you had style.


See, the original shirt is just boring. Although what I great image. Its got bicycles, a rocket, hearts and stars, and dancing bikini girls.

I dyed the white around the image with some watered down acrylic paint and cut out the scallops after it was dry. I stitched it onto a yellow tank I made with Fabric Planet jersey using red embroidery thread.

Much better my way!

I totally agree that your recon makes the graphic look so much better. But I think that the original T-shirt wouldn't have been so bad if it had been on a colored T-shirt instead of white. Oh well, this gave you an excuse to do a recon, and that's what's important, right? Right...
