1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Picture Heavy- Sir Francis Bacon, a calculator & ufos on: February 18, 2009 10:00:09 AM
So I have a few finished projects to share, all of which I did using my favorite toy- freezer paper!

Firstly, I don't know if anyone here is a Saturday Night Live fan, but in December John Malkovich hosted and there was a sketch about two kids who want a calculator for Christmas. Basically what it boiled down to was Fred Armisen and John Malkovich saying "calculator" over and over in Christopher Walken-esque voices.

(here's a link to the NBC website if you're curious:  http://www.nbc.com/Saturday_Night_Live/video/clips/calculator/866362/  )

It's a children's size shirt, so I figure even if you don't get the SNL reference, you can still put it on a kid who likes math.  Grin

Nextly I have some shirts I made for my improv comedy group. We're named 'The Francis Bacon Experiment' so I was toying around with some ideas, and decided to try my hand at making my own stencil...

I used this picture:

And came up with this shirt:

I'm really happy with how it came out, I've never really made a stencil before, so this was like a huge deal for me.  Cheesy

The lettering is a bit off, and honestly no two of the shirts are identical, but it works since the group is named 'experiment' why should we all be the same? *shrug*

Lastly is a project I just came up with looking at the stencils I have saved on my computer from spraypaintstencils.com

I call it 'Why The Dinosaurs REALLY Went Extinct'

The Front:

The Back:

Details of the Dinosaurs:

Details of the UFOs:

There is also one more ufo on the right sleeve, I had so much fun making this one I almost couldn't stop tweaking it. I'm happy with where it is now though.

Thanks for Looking!!

I am in love with this, and started working on one for my boy as soon as I saw it. Thanks for the adorable idea, and all the inspiration, which is clearly still working this far after your original posting :-)

And likewise thanks to everyone else who has posted about this, I love all the variations and differences, and it makes me happy in my heart.

super duper duper duper cool!!! I agree, this is up near the top of the movies that shaped my youth. :-)

I met Dan Aykroyd once... it was one of the highlights of my life. :-)

adore the shirt. did you make the stencil yourself or did you find it somewhere?

I wouldn't worry. There was a big discussion about this on Craftster somewhere a long time ago, and I think the general conclusion we arrived at was that if you're not selling things with the art on it or passing it off as your own, you're fine. He [the artist] may not be too thrilled with it, but there's not much they can do about it.

works for me  Smiley just sad that he beat me to the design (by several years. but still...) I actually make & sell cupcakes at my college, and was wanting to expand into other crafty cupcake related areas.... I'm working on my own design at the moment.... I'll have to post whenever i come up with that........... someday *fingers crossed*

anywhoodle, thanks everyone for the positive feedback!
