Hand screened T shirts, and other fun stuff
“I'm no longer a child and I still want to be, to live with the pirates, because I want to live forever in wonder." - Kathy Acker.
I have 3 boys, (and one truly marvelous girl). I was nearly raised by my big brother who is seven years my senior. The games we played, as I was disguised as his little brother so that his friends would accept me into their posse, were full of wonder and adventure and they were very real to me. My boys are growing into men and I have to admit that the last few years have been sadly lacking adventure and wonder and been about logistics and budgets and bills, horrid things. I owe it to them and to myself to rekindle that spirit.
The major impetus for this shop was my middle son going to college for marine biology and the costs of textbooks! Bam! T-shirts with ocean creatures to help raise funds for college expenses. No overthinking, no ponderings about the relation between Art and Craft, creation and product. I've been thinking about Etsy for quite awhile as a means to offer reproductions of art at an affordable price, watching with admiration as shop owners created their own empires! ( a shout out to Black Apple) This just seems the perfect place to explore all aspects of what I love to make, so we're starting with T-shirts. Hand made silk screens of our favorite sea creatures. This is the first step of a new adventure.
