Photoshoot pics to share (some rescued, some new)

August 29th, 2009

A few months ago, I went to download pics from my SLR memory card… but it didn’t work. I tried hooking up the camera directly to my CPU, putting the card in a card reader, reading the card through my point-&-shoot — and nothing worked on either my or John’s Macs.

Recently, as a last resort, John tried to access the card again; he happens to run Windows on his Mac (via VMWare)… and wouldn’t you know it, it was when he went this route that his computer could read the memory card. Windows to the rescue? Now, that’s a first!

Even then, some of the files were damaged, like these two:

But I did salvage some, thankfully!

In the last week, there have been a couple of other photoshoots too — here are some pics from those:

Big thanks to G, Plunkett, Hart, Jordan and Liz for being such great sports (and photogenic to boot)!

Please drop on by & join my facebook group to see more photos, and also for more info about giveaways and shows.

I was a little slow on the uptake with listing some of these 2009 shirts on my shop, but as of this morning, all of these wears you see pictured here are up and available online:

One of these days, I gotta get on the next four designs for this line… soon!

The day I shot a barrel of monkeys…

July 7th, 2009

I silkscreened up a storm last Saturday — mostly to beef up stock for upcoming shows. I did print a brand new combo, since I’d yet to put re[CONNECT] on a men’s tee.

John kindly agreed to do a shoot with me, and here are some pics of him in the new tee:

Guess which one’s my favourite? hee hee.

I’ve listed this in my shop now, so they’re available to all you monkey fans — hot off the presses!

The re[VERB] line is he-e-ere…

May 5th, 2009

I was a printing fiend from last Thursday ’til Sunday, and am relieved to be ready for this weekend’s sales. Above are the four designs I’ve printed for my 2009 re[VERB] line of wears so far (shout-outs to my Dad and Meredith for tons of help!).

I can’t quite remember why it was that I started obsessing about words beginning with “re-” a few months ago. Maybe it’s because I say that I’ll try anything twice. Maybe it’s because I like to fancy myself a little green. Maybe I’m just a word geek (I did a bunch of research with my Official Scrabble Dictionary, yo!). Whatever the case, I wanted to use everyday “re-” words but put a bit of a twist of what they mean.

There are a few more word and illustration pairings up my sleeve, which I aim to have out in the next couple of months — but suggestions (and feedback too) are always welcome!

In the meantime, have a scroll through some pics from an impromptu photoshoot John did for me, where some wonderful friends came out and did some outstanding modelling:

I played the part of pizza-doler-outer, and also provided light and wind for some shots:

More photoshoot shots here.

I’ve begun listing some of these to my etsy shop — woohoo!
Like I said in my last post, You’re as excited as me, right?!
