Remember that project I mentioned last week? I can talk about it now.

peacockduchess and I made t-shirts to give out to the retainers to commemorate their work on "The Reign of Rain". I designed and printed the logos out onto inkjet t-shirt transfer paper, and then she and I spent Tuesday ironing them onto something like 55 t-shirts. We had the best time!

This is the front, and this is the back -- I'd embed them, but the images are huge. I had a few bad moments when I was doing the test prints, because they were coming out all pixelated and looked like absolute crap... and then I realized that I'd been working at 72 pixels per inch, which is perfect for the web, but shit for print work. So I upped the resolution to 200 px/in, and tweaked the size and sharpness a bit, and they printed out beautifully. I was thrilled, peacockduchess was over the moon, and everyone at the party loved them.

I'm so stoked... it was so much fun, especially designing the front, and the shirts were so well-received.

i feel: ecstatic ecstatic

Oh very cool! Well not that it rained so much, but what a clever idea!

Well, we would have done the project anyway, regardless of the weather; the appelation just gave me a creative springboard.

I was so pleased with the umbrella; that was originally a photo of a grey and white golf umbrella. I overpainted it blue and tilted it, and positioned it like the crozier on a depiction of a paschal lamb.

Now that's pretty darned cool! If I served as a retainer, I'd be stoked to get a neato t-shirt like that :)
