Am by no means artistic, but I have fun making up t-shirts when an idea percolates. This one is in tribute to Jonny Greenwood, who recently scored Phantom Thread. The repeating note is from one of the themes used in the movie.

I thought this one would sell, but alas, no takers.

@nevets88 - Nice work. Do you have screen printing equipment or a digital t-shirt press? It looks like SP from the images.

I quick story about t-shirt printing... While in art school, I had a classmate who used to design and print t-shirts while living in Southern California. It offered a modest income that would basically pay for his consumables and a bit of his time. He showed me some photos of some of his designs - mostly sailing themes - and then came upon one that for whatever reason, started selling like crazy. The design was not much different than the others, but it became a craze for the area and he couldn't keep up. Said he made a lot of money off that one design. Then, as suddenly as it had started, they just stopped selling.

The design was basically a one-hit wonder.

@JonMA1 I have an account on one of the t-shirt services like Redbubble, you send in an image and they do everything but they take a substantial cut. It's mainly because "I want this t-shirt I'm imagining but no one has it so I'll make one for myself". And if it actually sells, which I don't expect, I'll just use that money to buy more t-shirts.

I did this one in like a minute and sold half a dozen. I look at purchases more like upvotes on social media.

Cool hobby. The quality looks really good for a digital press, but that shouldn't surprise me. That technology just keeps improving.

Do you have people comment on the shirts and ask where you got them?

I can see that, definitely a compliment. I had a portfolio full of artwork stolen back in the day. I chalked it up to either someone liking the art enough to commit a crime or my teacher throwing it in a dumpster.

Unfortunately no, so basically an exercise in self expression. :-P It earns enough  to get free t-shirts once in a while.
