T- shirt designs 2015. Comments on which ones welcome.
Here are a few designs I have developed for possible T shirts. The 3rd one, Busy Thermal, is currently being printed. Using direct digital printing now allows us to do shorter runs of high quality without having to get expensive plates made up for each colour for screen printing. The latter always needed large runs to cover the set up costs. Now we can do modest runs and I can have a bit more fun with different designs.
The top 3 are of a cartoony style reminiscent of our competition posters and shirts back in the 1990s. the Sierra de Piedrahita is similar to a Charley Harper design i rather likes, and the last a rip of the Lichtensteins Whaam! The latter two came from some of my animation experiments which you can see elsewhere.
T shirts are not everybody’s cup of tea. I was advised many years ago by Frank Goodman that a gentleman should keep to a shirt and collar after the age of 40. However, our guest always often ask for T shirts as souvenirs, so here I am trying to fill that need. If you are the sort who buys and sports this sort of garment I would welcome your input on which designs you prefer.
Jorge, our Retrieve and Take Off technician is also a Fine Arts graduate and has been fulfilling that need for T shirts for the last few years and will also probably have his designs for this year as well. Jorge has his own screen printing set up so is also able to smaller runs. I will put his designs up as and when he gives them to me.
