Soooo, hello, everyone! I still havn't found any freezer paper, so again these are all made either from cardstock or this funny paper I found in the class...

This one was for the teacher I TA for, to thank him for writing my letter of reccomendation. It's taken from a piece of Banksy street art that I particularly enjoy. I thought I'd done a pretty good job, until my mom couldn't figure out what it was supposed to be.

UGH. Okay, so, six colors was probally too many for me to try. It's the cover of the "Hits" album for the band Pulp, but I'm frustrated with it as I didn't get down a think enough coating of paint for each one. Also, there's some blue by Jarvis Cocker's ellbow that's not supposed to be there. Oddly enough, everyone but me thinks it's my best. Isn't that just the way it goes?

Takin' a step back, this was the first multi-color stencil I ever did. It had to be spruced up with a sharpie, but other then that I really really like it. Cover for Maximo Park's album.

Oh, my Art Brut shirt! I gave this one away, but that cursive took years off my life. Love it so much. Words are from the song "Modern Art."
Lastly, a somewhat blurry picture of a 2-D shirt I made for a friend.

Thank you!

Those look amazing!  I love banksy, he was the first stenciler I knew about. I immediately recognized the image.  The one in cursive is very impressive.  You did a really good job with all of those.

I immediately recognized the image.

Oh man, you have no idea how glad that makes me! My poor mother stared at it for a good three minutes, trying to figure it out...

Hey, nicely done.  The gorillaz one in particular looks very professional.   I'm a big Banksy fan as well...recently found a bunch of copy-cat t-shirts on sale in a pricey store in my town with his image of ronald macdonald, mickey mouse, and the girl in cambodia covered in napalm.  It's one thing making shirts for yourself - this person was selling them and actually claiming it was their own original art!! good grief.   Anyway, sorry, that was off topic, i was just still kind of fuming about it and needed to vent.  Cheesy

these are really nice! i like the color combination in the second one, they look really nice against the grey shirt.  and the metallic-ness of the gorillaz one is pretty sweet, too!
