Power Girl Power

As I started this process, I first started with some research of t-shirt design. After thinking for a while, I thought of some ideas, and I wanted something feminine. I took my ideas to the drawing board where I started to sketch. It was very difficult to come up with...

Back to 1993

It’s hard to beat animals who pilot ships in outer space to save a star system. When I was about 5 years old I loved going to the video rental store. I would always rent out the same video game every time: StarFox for Super Nintendo. This served as the...

Everybody’s Got a Hungry Heart

Brainstorming I think the biggest thing I learned these past couple of weeks is that I am not witty. These past two weeks I’ve been creating a T-shirt design. I noticed when looking at Pinterest that a ton of T-shirt designs were punny or witty or just funny. My...

Bake America CAKE Again!

Before I even got started on my t-shirt design, I knew I wanted design a pun. While I was thinking about what I wanted to do, I can across some trump socks. I started thinking of all the different photos of trump and sayings Trump has and brainstormed with a friend....

Tie Fighter

My objective for this design was to make a shirt that would be clever and something that I would like to wear. I like video games and I like Star Wars so that is how I ended up with the final design. I first started off with sketches. I thought about the shape of a...

Id rather hang with the trees!

This week for my t-shirt I wanted to do something with hammocking! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HAMMOCKING! I started by trying to come up with hammocking puns be cause I didn’t want just a shirt with a hammock on it.  Some of my thoughts where: Teamwork makes the dream...

Visit Seattle!

I originally had some trouble with this project. I really wanted to do something related to Parks and Recreation (the best TV show in TV show history) and I actually sketched out a lot of very different ideas that I could turn into illustrations. The problem was, the...

I do it for Savasana

I teach yoga, which influenced the theme of my t-shirt. I knew I wanted to do something with sanskrit, or yoga phrases and an image to match it.  I sketched out these ideas. I played around with dogs and upward facing and downward facing dog pose. I continuously found...

What’s up?

I worked on making a t-shirt using vector graphic. I tried to illustrate miscommunication between an American and an Asian (no racism here). When I came to the U.S. I had so many culture shocks. I think this one is one of my experiences.    Sketch. I thought of...

Mutants With Attitude

This t-shirt project was definitely something I was looking forward to. It was a little difficult coming up with some ideas, but after sketching and going through some critique sessions, I came up with a design I loved. I grew up with four brothers, and we absolutely...

Stuck in a Rut

I think this project takes the cake for being the most enjoyable thus far! Striving to create something I would want to wear made me think differently about what I was designing. It was really fun to create something I knew I would like and be proud of.  EXPLANATION:...

You Are Sublime

This one of the projects this semester that I was looking forward to the most. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do right off, and one day while I was browsing Pinterest, I saw a cute hand drawn card that said “You are Sublime!” with a cute...

Lookin’ Foxy

I started this project with a very clear idea in my head. Which of course means I threw it away at the first sign of disinterest. My sketched deal mostly with simple geometric designs and random ideas that I had seen before. They also include a few things that I often...

Follow Your Instinct

When Pokemon Go came out I, like many other people joined in on the hype; unlike many people I kept playing after the hype died down. I loved it, as a game it is basic, but it was more of experience for me. On that first day when I got to visit my first gym and got to...

Wookie Republic

When I began this project, I had just no idea as to what I wanted to design. I knew I loved California, snowboarding, and photography. So I started with that. But, as you can see from my sketches, I was getting nowhere. But then I remembered, I also LOVE everything...

“Vote For VapoRub” — Forget Pedro.

From the time I left in 2014 to serve others for 18 months of my life, Spanish has been an integral part of who I am. The language, the food, the people, the lifestyle – all of it. Because of those 18 months, most of my best friends and closest acquaintances are...

Not So Fly

Not So Fly For a Penguin  Since I was a little girl I have done dance, whenever I was doing ballet I was towards the front for performances, but as soon as it was time to do a hip-hop dance I was places in the back corner because I am not “fly”. I decided...

BIRDS EYE VIEW

Creating a t-shirt requires creativity and some fun! This project definitely brought me out of my comfort zone for several reasons. However, I have really enjoyed the process of creating this t-shirt specifically.   Sketching Coming up with an idea for this t-shirt...

The Muffin Man Moved

When I began catching the vision for and seeing examples of this project, I began to light up inside. The neurons fired, and I generated ideas with glee. Designing a T-shirt to completion, even printing seemed daunting, but the less serious/light-hearted nature of the...

WHAT UP GANGSTA FISH!

This project has been my absolute favorite! It was fun to create a style that was totally different than anything I had ever done. Let me walk you through my process. This concept began when a couple weeks ago, I said “What up gangsta fish” to my wife! I...
