I used to wear my Jim Morrison tshirt so much that it ripped to the point that I couldn't wear it anymore as it was. So I decided to make my favorite tshirt live on by stenciling Jim Morrison onto another tshirt. So I took my stenciling paper, laid it over the old ripped tshirt, traced it, cut it out and applied it to the new non-ripped tshirt! It turned out well considering it was my first stencil.

That is one fine looking shirt, i bow down to you.  The doors rock my world, man.  i painted a picture of jim morrison a little while ago, it was so damn cool, it was the first thing i ever painted and i got offered 50 bucks for it.  i couldnt sell it though... i mean c'mon, i cant sell jim! so yeah, i am insanely jealous of your awesome shirt! keep up the good work!

i wish you could have made a stencil to be put online.. cause then i'd have to make myself a doors shirt.  i'm too cheap to go buy them made, so i make my own band shirts.  stencils are great.  haha. 

and also, my friend is like.. this amazing sketch artist, and she drew jim for another friend as a birthday gift.  it was.. well, amazing.  haha.  a lot of people wanted to buy it from her too, but neither of them would sell him!  she also went to europe for a few weeks this summer and actually got to see his grave.  i would have KILLED to see it! 

jim is one amazing guy!  great job!
