jamas, did you draw that yourself?  It's awesome.

I took frames from the actual music video and edited them with Adobe Premier, then illustrator. It took forever to figure out how to do that.

Have any of you seen True Stories? It is a movie with John Goodman and David Byrne in it and if features a whole bunch of songs by the talking heads.  Love the shirt.  If you were to go to any art school I think more people would know who the talking heads are- We actually studied the talking heads album cover in my modern art class! Kiss

Yes! I own TRUE STORIES and love it. Did you know that the band radiohead gets their name from one of the songs off of that movie?
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / High pressure hose for cleaning out screens! on: May 24, 2005 08:30:05 PM
I bought one of these a while back after having a tough time rinsing out screens with the faucet or a showerhead. This pressure washer works great. I just had to buy a faucet adapter which you can find for cheap at Home Depot or that sort of shop. I use the faucet in my bathroom and the hose is long enough for me to reach the tub so I keep the mess in there. I'm in no way affiliated with the company, just thought that some people out there might want one of these. It's $20, but I've found it to be well worth it.

I've been looking for an envelope maker/template thing, and it sounds like your mom got exactly what I need. Can you get me the name/manufacturer/place of purchase of the item? I haven't done any searches online for them, mostly looking around everytime I am at the craft store for these elusive babies, so any help you can provide would be great!

BTW, your envelope rocks!


Sorry to be so late in reply. She picked it up at a craft shop in Lawrence, KS. Here is a link to a website where you can buy them:  http://www.greensneakers.com/products.aspx?cat=1

My first t-shirt.

It's a reference to the talking heads video for "once in a lifetime" where he makes this hand motion while saying the phrase "same as it ever was". My best friend and I use this as a greeting every now and then so I decided to make it into a stencil.

Here is the stencil:

How do you do the photo to stencil thingy? I want to do the same with a pic of frida but I dont know how. Lemme know asap.
Great shirt btw

Threshold in Photoshop works well, but there's also a 'stamp' filter that works very well  in Adobe Illustrator if you're lucky enough to get your hands on a copy of that program.

What do you use to make your images? How do you get shading like that?

I've made the mistake of having that little square outline many times as well.
My biggest shirt mishap was laying my ink covered squeegie next to the sleeve of the shirt which became covered in black ink and then found it's way into the trash.

As for making sure there's enough ink...as long as your stencil is very tight in place and directly in contact with the fabric, a couple swipes with the squeegie seems to do it for me. If th screen isn't tightly in place with the fabric, it will usually smudge.
