1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Bowie, blessings, and bugs on: January 19, 2007 01:15:43 PM
I haven't posted anything in forever, so here's part one of the shirt-a-thon.

A) Rebel Rebel

I definitely thought I'd posted this one already, but I couldn't find it when I tried to check. Apologies if it's a double post.

B) Madeline!

A slight mishap with the "m," but I mostly like it anyway.

C) I Really Prefer "Slugbug"

Sometimes arguments must be settled with t-shirts.

'Til next time...

A bunch of new shirts, huzzah!

1) I Just Wanna Have Something To Do

Which is why I crouch over my stencil film with my X-Acto knife night after night, much to the dismay of the eye doctor. This is my sad little interpretation of that one photo where they're all up against the wall...portraiture's not really my strong suit, alas, alack.

2) Enjoy

Yeah, there's a song by the Clash called "Koka-Kola." Hey, it was easier than coming up with something cool for "Spanish Bombs."

3) I Gave Her My Heart, And She Gave Me A Pen.

I would give Lloyd Dobler more than a pen. He is a good guy who kickboxes and wears really sweet shirts (the t-shirts, not the big baggy jacket ones). Besides, he is the keymaster. If none of this is registering, go watch "Say Anything."

4) Jesus Loves You More Than You Will Know

Yes, it's Anne Bancroft, particularly Anne Bancroft as Mrs. Robinson in "The Graduate." I think she is why boys came up with the term "MILF." Poor Mel Brooks.

And so concludes another episode of "Stenciling with the Stars." Later, dudes, thanks for reading.

Yar, here are some new shirts. Alas, they aren't as exciting as usual because only one of the designs is really, truly (madly, deeply, ack!) my own, but I'm still pretty happy with the way they turned out. So, without further ado...

#1) GI Joe Was Never Better

This was a job for a friend, and the design concept had to be explained to me before it amused me sufficiently. For those as in the dark as I was, there is a website on which one can view old GI Joe cartoon Public Service Announcements that have been overdubbed with rather inspired dialogue. For further explanation of the meaning of this shirt, go to http://www.fenslerfilm.com/?sec=video and click on PSA number 07. (And, yes, I realize, that now-after the fact-there are t-shirts for sale on the Fensler Films website. Even so, I wasn't aware of this at the time, and was rather proud of the speed with which I knocked this one out.)

#2) Fear and Loathing in Hobby Lobby

So...the circle around the Gonzo fist isn't usually that thick, but I had some serious bleeding issues and that seemed the least offensive fix. Somehow, I don't think the Good Doctor would mind. For another sweet homage to dear old Hunter S., check out Era Vera's version at https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40907.0.

#3) Night of the Living Anthropology Dorks

So, my anthro class is full of delightfully funny, nerdy people who appreciate crap like making shirts when you're bored. We just finished reading Wade Davis' "Passage of Darkness," which is the academic version of his more popular "The Serpent and the Rainbow." Sounds boring, yes, but guess what? THEY'RE BOOKS ABOUT ZOMBIES. Real zombies, which one must admit, are pretty intriguing. Very long story ridiculously short, you mix poison from puffer fish with a lot of chemically inert ingredients and do a lot of magic rituals, some of which involve rooster torture, and some sorry sap ends up a zombie. Less exciting than Romero, I know, but still pretty cool. And because I wanted to amuse my class (they loved it and my teacher laughed hysterically), I give you the zombie shirt: fish+rooster=zombie. Schwing.

All of the shirts are kid mediums from Hobby Lobby. They fit fantastically and are nice and soft.

So, here are two new t-shirts:


Pretty self-explanatory, no?


Yes, yes, I know it's VERY smudgy and sloppy-looking, but that's sort of what I was going for, and I'm fairly happy with it. It's purely representational...the guys' faces are ridiculous. "Une Femme Est Une Femme" ("A Woman is a Woman") is an awesome little French movie that is completely ridiculous: stripper has two lovers and wants a baby, hilarity ensues through a series of circular conversations and totally random situations. I highly recommend it.

Until next time, make good choices and don't do drugs.
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / pirates, poets, and personification on: October 17, 2005 09:11:34 PM
Here are three new shirts:

#1: The Very Model of a Modern Pirate Covergirl


#2: Destroyed by Madness?

Text reads: "SEEKING JAZZ OR SEX OR SOUP." For the record, this refers to the dude with the sign around his neck. Tongue

#3: House Special

The Chinese characters read "PEACE AND HARMONY." Would you like to see my tribal t-shirt? Just kidding...it really says "MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE." I think.

Until next time, keep on rockin' in the free world. Hopefully everyone can see the pictures now?
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / New t-shirts (image heavy): booze, black belts, broads, and brian boitano on: October 02, 2005 08:44:15 PM
So, I'm not going to lie, I totally ripped the helicopter one from photobucket and previous posts (see https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39971.0), but I really liked it, so I felt the need to make one. Also, it appears someone beat me to the clever literary thing (see https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=36251.0), but just call it variation on a theme...all my friends seem to want one now, and i'm told that one can also be obtained from bustedtees.com. Great minds think alike everywhere, it seems. So, without further ado, the dang shirts:

Absinthe Makes The Heart Grow Fonder...this one gets a lot of comments from curious college kids.

WWBBD? (What Would Brian Boitano Do?) Brian's hands are a little wonky, alas, alack.

Proof that David Carradine was badass long before "Kill Bill," grasshopper. It's red, even though it looks kind of pink in the photo.

The official t-shirt of a secret society for vaguely Catholic people of Irish heritage who all happened to be watching "Boondock Saints" at the same time. The words are Gaelic and roughly translate to "May a cat eat you, and may the devil eat the cat." This, it seems, is an old Irish curse.

Prose Before Hoes. Poetry's cool, too, although I'm not sure how I would prioritize it...

The helicopter one. All my paint is Tulip fabric paint, and all the shirts are the $2.99 kids' mediums from Hobby Lobby.
