Last Chance Garage Band shirts

I'm getting back into silkscreen design and printing.  My dad's band played a show in San Diego recently and he commissioned me to make some shirts to give to their guests in the audience.  I spent a lot of time over at dafont.com and eventually settled on a font called "Kiss Kiss from Paris".  A great font aside from some letters, like B, not having "holes".  So I had to add those myself.  I have a thing for simple block letters so I tried that.


I had not printed in over a year.  Silkscreen is a complicated and meticulous process, and I made a number of amateur mistakes throughout, especially in the photographic exposure process.  Somehow I improvised my way past the setbacks and everything actually ended up all right.  I had a lot of fun getting back into the groove with printing.  I need a color printer, though, because the colors I ended up printing on the shirts weren't too close to what I designed.


Anyway, I now have a few print projects lined up, and it's good to be back.

The garages of the top F1 teams have been moved to the middle of the pit lane for the British GP, so that fans will be able to see them.
