so I made these t shirts this past weekend. I printed the guys on that dark blue, and the girls on white.
I still have a bunch/the screen still so if anyone's interested you can have one for a mere $20! I'm really happy with the way they turned out and IT MADE ME REALLY EXCITED ABOUT SILKSCREENING AGAIN. oops, so excited it made me accidently hit the caps lock and shout at you. i apologize if i damaged your mind's ears.
sorry it took me so long to post stuff! i'll get back on it right away.... sir.

potential Threadless tee! I'm just waiting for approval from the website and then it will be up for voting. I'll post a link as soon as it's up.
It's for a special contest they're having called "Threadless Loves: Pre-Loved". so the designs are supposed to remind people of pre-loved stuff (vintage stuff, used stuff, hand-me-downs). anyways my design is based off the book/movie the Brave Little Toaster.
I promise to post more soon. I've been rather neglectful of this blog for a while haven't I?

So yesterday I biked to Wal-Mart and bought a box, some potting soil, and herbs. then I came home and spent the afternoon planting!
I also changed the strings on my acoustic again, and gave it a good wipe down and tightening.
I hope I don't kill these plants! I don't think I have a very green thumb, but I'm thinking positively about it.
not having to get up to go to classes is nice. it's finally starting to feel like summer... sort of.

Alex and I watched "Control" last night. that bio-pic about Ian Curtis (lead singer of Joy Division). It was hard for me to feel any real sympathy for the guy in the end. I had watched another film a couple nights before called "24 Hour Party People" which was practically about the same thing. This film however was about Tony Wilson, the owner/creator of Factory records, the company which produced Joy Division, and then later New Order. In this movie, Curtis is portrayed as the character the audience feels almost sorry for. A musical genius misunderstood who finds this life too much and hangs himself in his home. I was actually sad after this.
But in "Control", we discover so much more about Curtis, and some of it isn't as "genius". He was married young, was in a post-punk band garnering a lot of attention, had a baby daughter, and a lover on the side, and oh yeah, epilepsy and all this happened before his life ended at 23 years old. The film made him seem a coward, and way too immature to have to deal with everything he created for himself so young. I still hold a lot of respect for how he shaped music history, but Ian Curtis the Man, is not someone I would look up to.

So Scott Pilgrim and I have been tirelessly working on a collaboration for the past few days. We'd been talking about doing something together for a while, but we finally sat down and worked something out.
this is the end result.
It's considered a series but each piece is an individual as well. We went around town and Scott photographed all the urban areas, and we took the photos and traced them, keeping the buildings etc incomplete looking and simplified. Then we added the colour which we'd decided early on was going to be just a small smear somewhere on one of the structures. Then the figures were added by myself, using brush and ink. the figures were referenced from life and photos.
so here you have it. The most personal art I've produced in a long time, and I can't believe it turned out exactly as it was envisioned in my mind.
Scott, it was a pleasure working with you!
