One of my favourite things to make as gifts for people in my family are t-shirts. I have been making t-shirts for fun for 20 years. originally I hand painted them with fabric paints. I made a bunch of t-shirts for myself in high school and often made ones for family members to mark a special occasion. With the acquisition of my graphic design skill set I started using photoshop or illustrator to make my designs and then print them out on transfer paper.
I have been ironing on my hand made character alphabet for years but more recently have been intrigued with making t-shirts that play on pop culture or ones that use altered logos in their design. My son's name is Torren (a seldom seen name anywhere let alone on a personalized item) so I have made several t-shirts for him replacing his name in the logo.
