This ones for my brother who loves all things octopus/kraken and steampunk. It was not only my first try with a ironing transfer pen but also my first fabric painting project in *ages* and it proved to be a bit more tricky than I actually thought. The design was whipped together by me, using various sources from the web and tons of time and pencil.

The coloring was done with violet silkscreen paint which I toned a bit down and a golden contrast gel which is usually used for silkscreen as well but also works fine on cotton. The border was done with an ordinary black fabric marker with a 3 milimeter tip. The design is placed on the back of the shirt, it looked kinda weird on the front. You can find the complete "making of" here: http://bohemiancrafting.blogspot.com/2010/08/octopus-steampunk-shirt-all-done.html

very nice, I like it! the octopus looks fierce!

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

life is no cabaret- we don't care what you say, we're inviting you anyway, you mf'ers, you'll sing someday!
