so these are a couple of christmas presents I've made. I've done a little t-shirt design work, and some bleach work, but this was my first time using stencils of any kind. I'm not very confident freehand and as I knew I wanted to make something that needed to catch an iconic shape I wanted to make a stencil for the outside shape.

So as I don't really have photoshop skillz I printed off the pictures I wanted to use, picked up the outline in pen and then traced the outline shape onto tracing paper, and transferred it onto card and then cut out the shape. Used bleach on the t-shirts to get the background colour and then used fabric paints to bring out a little detail.

First I bring you bearsharktopus:

and in case you don't know bearsharktopus, this is where me and my friend first saw him boingboing bearsharktopus - the most badass animal on the net.

(unfortunately I dripped some lines of bleach because I wasn't being very clever - I'm gonna sell it to my friend that the bearsharktopus is fighting off lasers...)

and secondly I bring you a slow loris who likes being tickled:

and in case you haven't seen the slow loris being tickled it's here I really recommend it - it cant fail to make me smile Smiley

Hope this fits alright in this forum. Let me know what you think  Smiley

Beaksharktopus is awesome!

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

Fun designs.  I like the texture that the bleaching gave them.  Your friends should be excited about their one of a kind shirts!
