Lately, I've been spending some time designing t-shirts for the band that Dhany's in,
We The Thousands (check 'em out, they're awesome! Every time I hear their music, I'm awed that I know such people).
Short of being an actual member, I've been to a few of the recording sessions and jams and I've spent some time taking pictures of the band as well (more for practise than because I'm a pro!) and now that they're recording proper, I thought I'd draw some t-shirts with fabric markers for fun so Dhany could wear them to jams and things.
Here are a couple of the designs I thought I'd share just for fun - they incorporate a teeny acronym of the band name that you really have to search for. Obviously, the pictures and designs are copyright me!
I was actually experimenting with fabric markers on this shirt, so the shading and all are a little bit wobbly, but Dhany's already worn it to a jam and apparently the band likes the idea.
This one, I took in progress:
This design is just a prototype and I'll be tweaking it further, but I just thought it was a fun idea, what with all kinds of light bulbs dangling down every which way.
If anyone is interested, as I've mentioned before, I'm happy to draw on people's t-shirts or design things for practice. I like doodling for fun, and am happy to take on any practice I can, so just let me know!
