Here are a whole collection of some of the shirts I've screen printed over the last few years. I use hand-cut stencils rather than the photo emulsion method. I think this gives them a unique, personalized, hand-made look (even if inspired by other images rather than from my own imagination), but on the other hand, I may just be a masochist.  Wink These stencils took patience. Sorry about the pic quality... it's tougher than I imagined to photograph oneself!



"Non sempre nuoce" or "not always dangerous"  Wink two-tailed siren is inspired by the crest of the city of Venice (if I recall correctly). The pointing hand is from a rubbing my boyfriend made on a ancient wall in Dijon. The smoking cat is from a wood block I was given. The medieval style sun and rhinoceros beetle came from somewhere in my head.  The rhinoceros beetle looks best in black on a red shirt I gave away. Cheesy

 

The patterned bats (my favorite, though a bad pic) are inspired by a Japanese print. The gryphon is from another rubbing by the BF in an ancient church in Dijon (luckily the priest thought his French Canadian accent was quaint and did not kick us out). The gryphon on the fushia background is the back of the pointing hand shirt. The rain drops are my own design- I was thinking about fractals.

I hope you like them.  Smiley

Wow, those are great!  My favorite is the teardrops in the shape of a teardrop... awsome!

I LOVE that raindrop shirt! Your others are great, but you should run with your imagination more often. It's such a nice design.

Oh, yes. I almost forgot to add how impressed I am with your stenciling technique.

Hey thanks! I really appreciate that. It's surprising to learn that the drop design might be what other people (other than biased friends who'll say they love it all  Wink ) might prefer. Hmmm... Interesting ...

I agree with the overwhelming popular vote here - I love love love the raindrops (or teardrops if you are being emo - ha!) I would totally buy one. In fact, will you be selling these in the future?

Oh, bananafish (as in "A Perfect Day for Bananafish"?), I hadn't thought about that. Thanks!  Cheesy Maybe I should think about that... it's all a question of finding enough hours some time... So far, I'm just dressing myself, my boyfriend and friends.

There's too much sky and not enough blue.
