Well, not very recent. Just ones I've forgotten to post.

James and the Giant Peach. Made this after watching the movie with some kids I babysit. They were scared by it, but I made them watch it anyways 'cause I hadn't seen it in a long time. I'm not the best babysitter. A little selfish.

Elvis Costello. Just because. Because he's awesome. And it's brown because brown rocks. This one was made a long time ago, and with several washings, it's begun to fade a bit where I didn't apply enough paint. Crappiness.

This is the shirt it's on. Plain and white. Giant shirt I stole from my stepdad and made smaller. Skinnier that is, I like my shirts long. I still want to do something with the sleeves. I think they want to be puffy.

And finally a Who patch I made late one night to celebrate my rediscovered love and slight obsession with them. It's on my school bag.

So yeah, they're really not that exciting, nothing very difficult (well the Elvis Costello one was a little hard, kind of detailed). No multi-color ones.

It's from http://www.djtees.com/tshop/store/index.asp They've got lots of good pictures. If you click on the one picture it goes to a bunch of colors of shirts with that picture one. Then if you click on one of those, it goes to a pretty easily stenciled image. You just have to make your own bridges.

elvis costello rocks!  that is an awesome shirt!

when antiques roadshow wrapped up last night on pbs (yes, i am a geek), i started watching history detectives just because the opening theme is set to watching the detective.  (it's a pretty fun show, too!)
