Project t-shirt: printing the design on the t shirts

Blog, Vlog

Two test t-shirts… and then… let the production for my lovely back uppers begin!

Project t-shirt: transfering the design on to the screen

Blog, Vlog

Now it’s time for the magic… make the design appear on the screen with the help from sun light (if you’re more professional you’ll have a super cool light to light your designs).

PS I got five offline back-uppers now :). I will be making 5 t-shirts with my print on it.

Project T-shirt: coating the print screen

Blog, Vlog

To actually silk print I have to prepare the screen. I have to coat the screen with a photographic emulsion (on both sides) and let it dry. It takes some preparation. Go see for yourself in this speeded up proces video. + Note to self: don’t chew gum when you’re making a timelapse :’)

PS I got four offline back-uppers now :). I will be making 4 t-shirts with my print on it.

Offline back-uppers

Blog, Vlog

So the campaign came to an end… and no online Patrons. I expected that, because I don’t have a large following on Instagram. Nevertheless I’m going to proceed the project. I’ve got two offline Patrons! The two fans from the early days: my cousins. Receiving my drawings from 1994 until now (haha not joking).

In the next week I’m going to make my first print and I will record the process.

[Ended] Help me get started > Get a free t-shirt✨

Blog

Help me out! I got excited about making t-shirts but I don’t have the resources (yet!). I still have to save some money to get the tools (you know for screen printing 🖌️🎨). If you want a t-shirt or want to help me with this project go check out my Patreon page! You can join the fun, because what’s the point of making shirts if I can’t share them?

How does it work? On Patreon you can support creators so they can continue creating the stuff they and you like. I’ve set up 2 Triers:

✨The Awesome Follower ✨ $1,- for the low key follower who still wants to contribute and follow the screen printing process.

🎁The Goodie Lover🎁 $5,- for the supporters who also want to receive some of the stuff I make (for example stickers, postcards). Also now with a limited time offer! ⬇️

The first Patrons to sign up for the $5,- dollar trier get a t-shirt! Offer ends on the 14th of December at 12:00 pm 🕛 (CET).

I want to help you! ⭐

If you only want to support me for a limited amount of time (let’s say 2 months). Canceling your membership is pretty easy (I can tell from my own experience. It’s nice to support some creators for a while).

November update: portfolio, Patreon and stuff.

Blog

Hello stranger (a.k.a. website), it’s been a while. Do you remember me? I draw sometimes and it’s hard to keep up with work and when your mind is busy with other stuff. But hey, I have been creating and I feel like there’s a new spark coming.

So I logged into WordPress and immediately went to update my portfolio with stuff I’ve made in the last year. Go check it out here! I’m going to update more but first I have to scan them in. Also, I update more stuff on Instagram.

Speaking off Instagram. I uploaded some images of me with some photoshopped images of myself. I always wonder how certain drawings would look like on a t-shirt. So today I put on a white t-shirt. Went to a spot in my home where there’s natural light and not too much background noise. Set up the camera. Pressed the self timer and ran to the spot to stretch out the t-shirt and look down. And then the fun began. It turned out pretty cool. I think.

t-shirt designs

I’m thinking of making some of these designs but I don’t have any off the tools yet. I’ve seen a silk-screen printing starter kit that I’d like to have. So I’m saving for it. I’m going to start with the top left one (#chiledesperto) because it’s only one colour t-shirt design and it’s the one I had in mind when the idea was forming in my head. If you’re interested in a t-shirt or would like to help me fund this project… Go to my Patreon! I’ve had some peeps in my DM’s telling me they’d like one.

That’s it for now!

Sketch book tour #01

Vlog

Hey, I made my first sketch book tour :). Just a flip through in a sketch book I finished the 1st of August. The voice-over isn’t perfect. It changes in volume. I recorded these voice overs on my iPhone. Most are recorded while sitting at my desk, with my phone close to my mouth. And some are recorded while I was sitting relaxed on my bed, with my phone too far away from my mouth. Ugh. But I just keep it this way. Because it’s the first one, and I couldn’t hear my own voice anymore haha.

7 days of doodling on A4 – Day 7 of 7

Doodle, Vlog

DAY 7! Here it is. Finally. Had some troubles finishing the video. iMovie gave me an error while editing, and then the whole project was gone. When I opened iMovies again I got an error every time I wanted to start a new project.

Anyhow, I fixed this problem this morning and that’s why I uploaded it now instead of yesterday.

I was kind of uninspired so I started with a girl who resembled the outfit malfunction I had during my run. (Tight shorts RIDE UP and I forgot that. Had me annoyed my whole run. 11 km.. I stopped at 7,5 km to tuck it down and get my mind of it). And then just went on with drawing flowers… etc.

I hope you liked the video’s. It really was fun to do and made me think of other projects I could do. So stay tuned!
