|Contact and shirt design
I proceeded to create an image with the theme of "Contact". This was supposed to be submitted to an art show, but I am a lazy bastard, so it didn't. End of that story.
At any rate, here are the final, finished images, complete with an altered t-shirt design that I plan on printing one day.
I don't know why, to this day, why I ended up making a monkey-like creature in a seeming battle of good and evil. It just sort of happened that way.
But I still think the shirt design is neato.
What do you think?

Brand sparklin', spankin', trash-talkin' n' shiny shirt design. What do you think?

This is...well...what do you think?
It comes from a conversation with an 8 year-old girl about drawing mickey mouse. This just sort of happened afterwards. Current Mood: head stuffy and rain angsty

I will be at Chippewa Park all day Saturday, June 3rd, with my boss Brian, at a booth called Rock My World. We will be trying to raise money for the Shelter House Corporate Relay by having people make their own shirts. You get a piece of transfer paper to draw on, and you can purchase a shirt for 10 (youth) to 15 (adult) dollars, tax included.
Come visit me, if you dare. Current Mood: ear lickey
A design for a fictional band made up between me and a friend. I can't remember the names of any albums though.

|Flower Patch and News
Current Mood: Arm spasmy
I created this as a patch for Multimedia Production, a 3 year college course I just finished. I wanted something trendy. I'm obsessed with the patterns on linoleum tiles. Especially the tiling in my apartment bathroom. I'd like to recreate it someday. It's great inspiration.
At any rate, I bought raspberrysunshine.com from godaddy last night, so the domain is now mine.
And I now own an iPod. My life as a trendho begins today.

I'm getting an ALPS printer. These things are meant for t-shirt printing. Especially vector stuff. The lines come out incredibly crisp and smooth. And the transfers LAST. Apparently you can throw 'em in the washer and dryer as normal. I'm looking forward to this. Soon the world will be mine.
The t-shirt world.
Remember your bubbleguns kiddies. 'Cause someday we're gonna take it slow. Current Mood: chocolately aftertaste

|cherryinachocolatehat part 2
Here is the cherryinachocolatehat design on a XS white longsleeve Non-Fiction tee. Someone, one day, is going to look very, very sexy in this shirt. That's a promise, dammit.
As much for myself as for you.
Sadly, there is a small black marker stain on the lower right back. That's why I stole (aka took with boss's permission) this shirt from work. It's actually a really nice shirt, although I soon discovered afterwards that, due to the stretchy nature of the material, the accordian effect is happening again to my transfer. Damn. This basically means that printing on stretchy material is a big no-no.
It's about time for a new design soon. And we all know what that means. Yes. No pants for Julie. Current Mood: Chappy Lippy

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you mycherryinachocolatehat.
This is the front. Ignore the stains, as it's a thrift store shirt (yellow old navy ringer with a blue collar)
And of course, my illustrious logo, on the back between shoulder blades.
As I am not a beautiful girl who can look sexy in t-shirts, I don't quite have any action shots. However, as soon as I can find some way to ask the girls I know (bribe) I'll post some sexy, sexy action shots.
Of shirts. In action. Current Mood: Coughy

This is a shirt I designed for a friend of mine. She came up with the idea, I came up with the artwork.
Keep it loving, kiddies.
I didn't actually realize that this phrase is based off of a comic called Animals Have Problems Too. Credits go to Zach VandeZande.
The original comic can be found here: Who Wants Four Hugs?

|I got a new camera!!
..but I wish I had a tripod. I apologize in advance for the crappiness of the pics. I'm still learning the camera, so I'll try to take better samples for next time.
I designed this for a light khaki shirt, although it's a design that can pretty much work on any colour. When I put it through the heat press, however, I ended up printing it just a small amount to long, so the transfer pulled off very rough. I also found out that if a shirt can stretch, so can the transfer. And those little bastards will when they're on the shirt. What happens is an accordian like effect. As the grain of the shirt stretches, it takes the transfer with it, creating long vertical gaps that pretty much run the length of the transfer. Irratating.

This just makes me sad. This got printed waaaaay too damn long in the heat press, and the transfer pulled of incredibly rough. And I also realized why Brian (the man I have my placement for) will not print on red shirts. Because they darken the living hell out of the material, creating the ugliest transfer outlines. The best way to use a computer transfer is to carve the ever-loving hell out of it before you print it anyway. The less transfer, the better. Always.

This was actually printed on an American Apparel brand T-shirt hoody. The same thing happened with my design on the khaki shirt. American Apparel designs their shirts to fit very snugly to the contours of the body, and for that to work properly, it needs to stretch. The vertical gaps in the shirt here are VERY evident. Makes me kinda sad, as this is my original logo. It's called the Dreamheart, and it's also tattooed over my heart. It's a very close symbol to me, and it bloody well sucks that it turned out so crappy, but I seriously doubt that this is going to be the first and last time that the dreamheart will appear on a piece of clothing I own or make.
I apologize again for the pictures being so crappy. As I get better with the camera so will the photos.
That's it for now kiddies.
Peace, love, and Katamari.
