It's hard to work alone sometimes too depending on the project. It'll be nice when I have a bunch of artistic people around me who I can collaborate with, and/or when I get some kind of creative job/space. I designed a torso-sized stencil of Barack Obama a few months before the elections and started spraying it on a shirt. It's a 3 layered stencil, I love how it came out. I've been selling a decent amount of them since I started, more-so when i can afford shirts and supplies. The last time that I made a bunch where for Erin Barra's concert when she came into town at the end of December. I sold all the shirts. I even made a stencil of Erin and gave her a few shirts to see if they'd sell in NYC. I probably made 30-40 shirts in 2 days, all by hand, solo. I've probably made quite a few more than 200 of these shirts.
It's pretty labor intensive, I've set up a whole method that's way too hard to sum up right now, but spray paint is pretty messy and it stinks my apartment up even though I'm on the patio outside. My roommate is a saint for putting up with it.
Okay.... My fingers are tired and it's time to get off my ass. This valuable venting session is now complete....and it feels great.
Ciao for now. XO:a
