11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Value Village shirt + Button up shirt = New shirt for me! on: November 22, 2006 11:14:49 PM
I started with this horrible, youth large, too short sleeved t-shirt from value village, that said value village on the back. The only picture I have from before is really horrible, but basically it sucked. Oh it had a sort of mock turtleneck type thing.

Anyways, at one time, I put a zipper down the front, but it sucked and looked like crap. So I did this instead.

(excuse the silly face)

I thought this little thing would annoy me, but I kind of like it.

It was kind of tough, because I ended up having to take it completely apart and stuff, and it took way longer than it should have. I dunno, I think I like it.
12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Kurt Halsey Tote on: August 20, 2006 10:41:15 PM
I cut out this Kurt Halsey stencil (from stencilry) a week or two ago, but didn't have anything to put it on. I decided on a bag, and bought a plain tote bag and some green dye yesterday. And . . .

There's some bleeding, a lot worse than I usually get. I did this with spary adhesive instead of freezer paper, and I think I like the freezer paper better. Oh well.

Anyways, please let me know what you think of it!
13  Washington / Washington: West / Mentoring for Senior Project?? on: June 29, 2006 11:25:18 PM
Ok, so this wouldn't be for awhile, but next year, I have to do a project to graduate. I'm thinking about doing it on something related to sewing. We have to have a mentor for this, and I just wanted to see if anyone would have any interest in mentoring me. I'm not exactly sure what you would have to do, and I'm also not exactly sure what my project would be, but it would probably be something about sewing clothes. So if there's anyone knowledgeable in that area that would be interested in helping me out, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks!
14  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Reepicheep! on: June 26, 2006 03:50:53 PM
I'm quite a nerdy kid at heart, and I loved the Chronicles of Narnia as a child. I started reading them again, and remembered how awesome Reepicheep is. If you've read them, I'm sure you'll agree, he's the best. So I made a stencil.

But that stencil needed to go on something, right? Well I had this old red sweatshirt, so comfortable and stuff, but the whole pocket was stained with some gross black stuff. I have no idea what it was. So I stiched that on there (at school, no less), and this is what I ended up with.
15  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / HST shirt . . . yay! on: June 26, 2006 03:09:50 PM
I've been meaning to make something Hunter S. Thompson related since my failed attempt (first ever stencil!) at the Gonzo fist thingie. And talk of a HST swap (should I join? I don't know) reminded me of that. So I made this shirt.

The actual stenciling is pretty bad, lots and lots of bleeding, but I don't mind too much. The stencil took AGES to cut out, I picked a pretty bad font for cutting (I wanted it to look typewriter-ish). And actually, I'm not sure the quote is actually how it is supposed to be. I had to find it online because I didn't own the book at the time I started cutting it (found it at the used book store a couple weeks ago! yay for awesome books costing only 2 dollars!). Anyways, since you probably can't read it very well, it says "no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of the world. whatever it meant . . . "
16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Recent Stencils (James and the Giant Peach, Elvis Costello, The Who) on: April 04, 2006 10:53:14 PM
Well, not very recent. Just ones I've forgotten to post.

James and the Giant Peach. Made this after watching the movie with some kids I babysit. They were scared by it, but I made them watch it anyways 'cause I hadn't seen it in a long time. I'm not the best babysitter. A little selfish.

Elvis Costello. Just because. Because he's awesome. And it's brown because brown rocks. This one was made a long time ago, and with several washings, it's begun to fade a bit where I didn't apply enough paint. Crappiness.

This is the shirt it's on. Plain and white. Giant shirt I stole from my stepdad and made smaller. Skinnier that is, I like my shirts long. I still want to do something with the sleeves. I think they want to be puffy.

And finally a Who patch I made late one night to celebrate my rediscovered love and slight obsession with them. It's on my school bag.

So yeah, they're really not that exciting, nothing very difficult (well the Elvis Costello one was a little hard, kind of detailed). No multi-color ones.
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Black pleated skirt with stripey waist band on: March 29, 2006 10:03:47 PM
Yeah, so I made this skirt, like 2 years ago but forgot to ever post it. So here's the skirt. (excuse the top of my slip, it was too long and had to be pulled up. my shirt covered it.)

And here's me silly model posing.

18  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Charcoal Portrait of the late Hunter S. Thomson on: February 03, 2006 03:24:44 PM
Heh, I don't know why my title is so formal, but it is. Anyways, drawing class last semester we had to do a charcoal portrait and I chose to do him. There are things I wish were better, but I am rather pleased with it. I would appreciate honest, constructive criticism, as I would really like to improve. Thank you for looking.

Oh, I apologize for the bad quality of the photo of it. Hopefully I'll get a better one soon.
19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stenciled Shirts (outline of italy, sitting girl, -ish, ballerina) on: December 28, 2005 09:20:20 PM
This year I decided to stencil shirts for my friends for Christmas. I think these might be the first shirts I stenciled, but I'm not sure.

Here is my friend Seth, modeling his shirt.

And here is Amanda, super excited about her new shirt.

Here's a closer look at the actual stencil on Amanda's shirt.

And here is the shirt I made for Alex. (Excuse the weird angle, I was sitting on the floor, and the face, well it was morning.)

And a closeup of the stencil.

This is Justina, wearing her shirt.

And a closeup.

I am most proud of Amanda's shirt. It was my first two layer. Yippee. I'm glad it turned out well. And I think she really liked it. Tell me what you think!
20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / 50s-ish New Year's Party on: December 24, 2005 03:28:44 PM
My friends and I have decided we need to have a party for New Year's Eve, and as we are currently obsessed with the 50s, we want it to be 50s themed. I've only got a week, and I need ideas for decorations, food, drinks, etc. Any ideas you've got! thanks.
