A weekend of T-shirts and printing

16 Mar

This time last year there had been snow and I had enjoyed a few days off work with no trains. I have not been so lucky this year but we have been lucky with a lot of sun so there is no excuse not to be out in the garden creating new exciting things craft wise.

There have been a few failures to get to this point with 2 failed screen printing tests, some not so great t-shirt results but they are here! Original Skull Mice t-shirts. 

The first few will be going at a lower price until I can get some packaging sorted so grab yourself a bargain – An original hand screen printed t-shirt with original illustration. Currently only available direct from me either online or at Craft fair venues. £15 with free P&P for all facebook followers – http://www.facebook.com/bexonwhite. Sizes XS – XL with the fit on the slightly larger size so if you are usually a small, the XS would be suggested. 



Please email me at tragictomaotes@hotmail.co.uk with any questions or requests for t-shirts.

I have also been busy putting some original drawings and bits on ebay, there are some gooduns all starting at the lowest price I can sell them to cover materials. 






Sometimes you have to fail

3 Mar

I have been waiting patiently for a new order of screen printing goodies to arrive and now that they finally have I set about creating a printed t-shirt. It was all going so well. I created my pattern on the stencil, I filled it in….I did more than one sweep and my whole design was absorbed into nothingness. 


Lets try this again! Draw image onto canvas, check.

Let dry properly. Check.

Fill in. Let dry for what I think is enough time. Check.

Rinse with water. Check.

Print onto t-shirt and remove…check….o damn that did not work! Image

With 5 more days of work imposed on me until the next weekend I intend to sketch image one evening, let dry. Fill on second evening, let dry, rinse out on 3rd evening, let dry. Screen print on Saturday. Then I will either celebrate or cry depending on the results of that experiment! 


In which I scan some sketches

23 Jan

I said in the beginning of January I would be trying to draw more and not judge the outcomes, I finally found some time to scan in a few sketches I had lying around for tattoo design ideas, some detail is lost but the idea of them are still viable. 


One also I think will make a pretty cracking T-shirt so expect to see some update screen print t-shirts available! On black and white t-shirts.


If you are interested to know when these become available feel free to drop me an email at tragictomatoes@hotmail.co.uk and I’ll keep you updated!
