"He sat on the bench and gazed at the jar, little glowing bodies frantically dancing together. They had been his friends for only a fleeting moment, yet had made his heart feel as though it was about to burst open with happiness and light. After heaving a slow trembling sigh, he lifted the lid. A smile slowly spread across his whiskery face as they flew out into the night." Over many years this artwork has inspired so many different interpretations! I never meant it to - it just took on a life of its own. So the above is my story. Some others I've heard are about pennies from heaven, catching moonbeams and catching stardust. What's yours?
HAND PAINTED TEES:
- Each one is individually hand drawn and painted by me - using non-toxic, solvent-free screen-printing ink. This is applied with brushes and pens and fingers and splats.
- Once the paint is dry I heat-set the artwork, making it permanent and 100% machine washable (easy - cold machine wash and line dry).
- After I hand paint the artwork directly on to a t-shirt (as above), I scan the t-shirt and send the artwork to the printer.
- My printer in Paraparaumu does his magic using super high quality direct-to-garment printing - non-toxic and 100% machine washable.
I only use high quality, 100% cotton tees (Marle tees are 20% polyester) manufactured under safe, fair, legal and humane working conditions. :-)
