Do you watch the show?
I don’t. My brother in law loves the show. He’s always like “my show- Community…” “I know you don’t watch, but my show Community…”
I still listen. But jeeze the boy loves his show. His program.
His birthday is just days after Christmas. Poor boy.
This year I decided to make him some shirts for his show Community.
Decided on some designs. Pulled on my screen printing stuff and got to work!
Screen printing is so nice.
Ive never seen the show, so I am hoping I picked out some good designs.
All carved out and ready to go.
It turned out so nicely! This one is my favorite.
The next one I had more trouble with. Ugh.
I started with my yellow. The yellow I use is thin, I learned a bit ago to mix it with white to thicken it. But I wanted a bright yellow not a canary yellow. I did a few layers of yellow to solve this problem. I started off with the canary yellow and ended with the bright thin yellow.
I like how this layer turned out.
The next layer when right on top of the yellow. I waited for the yellow to dry to do this layer. This is the layer I had problems with.
So much that I feel bad giving him the shirt, but I know he’s going to love the shirt.
I cut out the letters and taped the design to the shirt. I needed more stability with the letters being so small. I apparently put more tape on the Troy side instead of the Abed side.
The last cut out. You can see the whole design here.
A simple white stripe. This part took less than 10 minutes.
The end result.
It’s pretty ok.
At least I know brother in law will like them.
