I have quite a few conversations via YouTube email regarding shirt printing… I had lengthy discussions with one fellow in particular who is quite skilled with the x-acto blade. His name’s Nathan Ross. He sent me links to some of his work and said it was ok to add his photos to my blog…
My friend Mark Brown (check out the Mark Brown solo music projects and his band, Red Shade Blue) watched my stencil tshirt making tutorial and then made and sent me a shirt… Here I am proudly wearing it before Brandy and I went out to pint night (it’s a logo from Jesus Christ Super Star): [...]
