What a jolly morning

by Sayraphim on January 9, 2009

I was hanging out with a friend of mine the other day and she was wearing a tshirt she’d created herself through RedBubble. It’s free to sign up and you can load photos and artwork up on it, it’s a 2d etsy. Anyway, so this morning I decided to make a couple of tshirts on it.

The first one was one I made years ago with fabric paint, but it’s old and breaking now, plus it’s too short for me, so I remade it, professionaly:

I’ve always hearted zombies.

Next I made a Sacred Heart shirt. I’ve wanted one of these for ages but never seen them anywhere. So about half an hour in photoshop and I uploaded:

I made one with the big image on it, and a second one with a smaller Sacred Heart. I’m really happy with these, because I haven’t done a lot of vector work in PhotoShop before and it was nowhere near as hard as I used to think it was.

When I was younger, I used to make heaps of tshirts for myself, and I also used to decorate my knickers. My two favourites are a black pair with silver glitter fabric paint that says GODLET and a black pair with green drippy writing that said ZOMBIE GIRL. Now you know that about me, you’re better prepared to understand the next three tshirts. This one started it all:
It’s a paraphrase from Calvin and Hobbes, and reads โ€œWhatโ€™s the use of wearing your lucky rocketship underpants if no one gets to see em?โ€

I always wanted lucky rocketship underpants, but I thought the question was a good one. But here, today my friends, I have found the solution!

Next, I wanted to remake my ZOMBIE GIRL knickers (which were worn to death, and beyond (fittingly enough) and are no longer with us) but I figured that a tshirt with ZOMBIE GIRL written on it would be kind of boring. Imagination to the rescue!

And then I figured I’d go have a look at the stencil art I’ve collected over the years and I found this:I also made a GODLET tshirt, although it’s totally different to the knickers design, I still like it. And someone’s favoured it already, which is nice
And I remade another old tshirt I had years ago, I’m not sure how it’ll go down with the Youth of today, but I still think it’s funny.
The amount of people, even back then, I had to explain who Jello was used to depress me.
But who knows. Maybe it’s old enough to be retro now a days.

So I’m really happy with my mornings work!

Now for the commercial. All of these shirts are only $30 each, they come in a wide variety of colours and sizes, they’re awesomely high quality and best of all, RedBubble is free to sign up! If you are interested in buying any of the shirts, you can click on the photos and it’ll take you straight there. Plus, you’d have my gratitude. And who can’t do with another rockin tshirt?
