I’ve been away for a while

I know that I haven’t been posting much lately, but recently I feel like I’ve gone dry with ideas on what to do next. So what I did was use a room (all the seminar rooms were fully booked, so I din’t get a chance to hang them up properly) and placed all the major pieces of my artwork in there and just sat down and thought things over, with a pencil and paper.

It actually did help me and I have some ideas that I think will be great for me now and in the future works. ¬†Watch this blog as it will be starting back up again ūüėÄ

T-shirt Slogan: Keep Her Where She Belongs

New T-shirt Slogan – Woman! Know Your Place


T-shirt slogans

The long awaited photographs of my current project which I’m planning to have as a very big series.¬†At this present moment they don’t have a title. Any ideas?

I copied these images from paintings. And from this I took these negative texts on the T-shirts and rejected them to say the text is wrong and that the people the text refers to are beautiful like the western world considers these paintings.

Vermeer- The Kitchen maid

Ingres- The source

Once this project is complete, I won’t include the paintings along side them.

Making more slogan T-shirts

I’m making more T-shirts for my slogans project. Some of the slogans I’m using are found texts and the others I made up myself. I can’t wait to show you the end results.¬†

I really should have planned this earlier, because the photography suite is fully booked right now so that means I have to wait until the 3rd of may to put my name down to use it. I’m a bit¬†disappointed¬†but this will give me lots of time to just focus on my essay and my family¬†photograph¬†project.

I’m going to have my t-shirts ready for then, which I’m going to start tomorrow in the screen printing room. I went there yesterday and she told me the price of the screen was around ¬£3. The basic paints are free which is an extra bonus however she did say that some colours are not good on dark t-shirts. I would have to pay for some better paint which I think was ¬£1.20 for 100g.

Screen printing

I went to a printing shop yesterday to find out the prices for the printed t-shirts. The man told me that the print has to be no bigger then A4 in size and costs £7. This put me off a bit because although my prints are not that big, it limits me to what I need to do. I have to supply my own t-shirts, which is not a problem. These will be coming straight from Primark.

After I left the shop, it instantly occurred to me to use a screen print to print my t-shirts. I’ve done screen printing before and it comes out great. The way the images are printed onto t-shirts (in the shop I visited yesterday) is by ironing it on, so I personally would prefer them to be screen printed.

I can do this at my University which is great. The last time I did this was at an art college for my foundation degree, and the only thing I needed to pay for was the screen. If this is the same then it works out cheaper and I can print my t-shirts in different sizes, for a variety of people to try on.

T-shirt slogans

I’m not sure where I’m going with this project, so I’m not going to reveal my reasons until later.

This is going to be apart of other small projects that I’m going to be doing alongside the family photographs with the miniature furniture.

I’ve been searching the web looking for T-shirt slogans, some of them are quite eye startling. It’s strange what some people wear on their T-shirts.
