Incarnations---T-shirt Image Evolution, Part 1

Here are 2 of my original non-silver print process images
(cyanotype and gum-bichromate) from which the
T-shirt image evolved.
Part 1 is the
“Chrome Car” print and Part 2 is the “Beach” print.
The Chrome Car T-shirt image also has other colorway variations (shown in previous posts).
Here I show it going from a cyanotype on paper, to a 4-color fabric screenprint on a white shirt; to more recently, a 3-color print using Discharge paste on a dyed shirt, to achieve the background building colors. I continue to experiment with discharge printing in this image, as my interest has largely been to see how various dyed shirt colors discharge and contribute to the image.

Robo-Squirrel for Kids!

Announcing Robo-Squirrel, now printed on Kids'
size shirts!
Robo-Squirrel is a great image for all ages, and now
he appears on all kids' sizes, from Newborns to
Youth size Large!
The main Squirrel image is hand screenprinted in black water-based fabric ink,
and the wind-up key is hand-painted in red water-based fabric inks.
So far my people are embracing this new development.
Robo-Squirrel Energy for everyone!
