So, I’m easily influenced. In a good way! I recognize this, and embrace it often. My interests are fickle, easily switching from one mild obsession to the next, whenever the winds change direction.
My most recent endeavor started with the phrase “Do you want another outlet for your artistic talents?!?” To which the answer was a reluctant “Yes?” followed by an insistent “Yes!”, and three evenings of mad screen printing ensued.
First, there was the Hunt for Clear Transparencies (which would be a terrible movie). Turns out you can’t really buy those suckers any more, but can get them printed at a copy shop. The Boy and the Kid were very tolerant of the Target and Office Max and the general all around town running that needed to be done in a day. Next, there was the dash to make a basement laundry room into a print shop, prep the screens in the dark, and then I was ready to print.
Over a few sleepless nights and multitasking mornings, 9 shirts and 6 handkerchiefs were made, with promises of more to come. I think they turned out pretty darn well. These two guys look pretty happy about it, at least.
What’s next, you ask? Baby onesies!!! The nephew needs some “My Aunt it Awesome” swag, I do believe.
