Kansas City sports teams have been doing great lately and I've been making stuff to show my support. Some have turned into t-shirts, some into prints, and recently I've even had some picked up to be sold at Made in KC! Here's to keeping the streak alive.
Sometimes I screenprint t-shirts in my garage for fun. Lately a lot of people have been asking where to get them so I decided to create a website.
Then I had a lot of fun so I made another one.
These aren't necessarily the most succesful websites but it's fun to see what I can create quickly with the tools I have available to me. It's also amazing what you can create with free websites templates these days.
Technology obsession has been a recurring theme in a lot of things I make. Not just because I feel like it is a huge problem for people today, but also because I experience it quite a bit myself. I'm made two pieces this week reflecting on that problem. Both made quickly, on a whim, but I felt the need to make them real. The biggest problem with technology is that it get's in the way of people most of the time. I was consciously avoiding that problem to make these things but I only realized after that they both speak to those "technological barriers" to reality.
More than 3 years ago I was given my first freelance opportunity by my very thoughtful cousin. Despite my lack of experience at that point, I am still proud of how it turned out. Here are those two t-shirt designs I created for Rallyhouse, a sports apparel company based in Kansas City.
