Not sure where exactly to post these...they're just painted. The first one may look like a stencil, but it's not. I like handpainting much better than stencilling or transfers though--stencils are limited, and the transfers crack and peel. These paints wash wonderfully.

The bird skeleton has no special meaning. I just like to draw skeletons. And am bird-boned myself.



And giant squids. Why not?

I love your shirt esp. the squid.  What sort of paint do you use.  I've been wanting to try some painting on fabric but am nervous about cracking and thickness.

I'm going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I'm going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it.  Possibly with dynamite.

Oh my cow, you painted those by hand?  Did you put them in an embroidery hoop to hold the fabric or anything?  That's some crazy detailed work, right there.  Good job!

Wow! Skills!
I especially love the squidy one. I have this long running personal jokes about squids, so it's very deep and meaningful to me.
They are so deliciously well painted.
