Tomorrow morning I'll be releasing Batch 5 (The Warbird) online! So that means tonight I'll be participating in a 5 month old tradition of loading the shirts into their freshly printed canisters whist drinking a refreshing adult beverage. It's been another exciting month in the studio with the creation of this epic shirt.
A couple highlights about Batch 5 (Warning: this might get nerdy)....
1. This is arguably the most detailed design that I've printed so far. The registration was kind of a pain but it was way worth it to see the colors come together.
2. I used a fairly transparent color on the whitish yellow layer of the shirt. It created an orange over the red and a light blue over darker blue. This made the color scheme turn out a bit more complex than previous shirts. I only have a four color shirt press at the moment so having colors overlap to make new ones gives me a bit more freedom.
3. The packaging turned out super great too. There are little white stars that I printed all around the text and the eagle heads but you need a microscope to see them.
I hope you enjoy the design of the shirt and the packaging.
Next month I'll be turning things up to get ready for the Forth of July or as I like to call it "Happy Birthday USA". I'll keep updating this blog on the progress of the next shirt so keep checking in.
