ga. my friend randall just got me into arlo and im addicted to their song shutterbug. and what do you know? its his birthday coming up, so last night i whipped up this t-shirt for him. when i give it to him next week i'll get some action shots and then post them on artificia. (so emo i am!)

this is on the upper front left breast (when worn)


this is the lyric. stencilled on the bottom right hand back (when worn)

i free-handed the camera (based on a picture from wikipedia) and printed out the words from the computer. i then glued about four pieces of paper together behind the image, waited till dry and then knifed out the "negative" parts. um. as for paint i used simple acrylic paint from an art shop. no fabric medium. it works wonders! can go in the dryer no problem and doesnt bleed what so ever (though it does crack). xoxo di.

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

i don't mean to hijack the thread but I dig your username. I don't know if you purposely  created it in regards to the Janis Joplin box of pearls but that'd be sweet, and very clever. Okay, I will stop now, sorry. the shirt's awesome Wink

Yep it was in regards to Janis Joplins' Box of Pearls (she's great) and because I knit.
