I totally forgot to show this when the lovely Racheal sent me a copy before christmas some time. It's my 'life is too short to listen to bad music' illustration in issue one of Underground Art School! The whole magazine is great :)
Anyway, a couple of people have suggested I make 'bad music' Tshirts. I've looked in to getting Ts printed and...I'm not sure it would work, money-wise. So I thought I might try it myself, which would be nicer on the whole. I don't have the resources to get the drawing on a silkscreen, but I figured I could try making a stencil. So that's what I've spent this afternoon doing.
I've done a sample print on card. All in all, I quite like it. But I'm thinking I may have to make the stencil again (much to my fingers' woe). 'Life' isn't very clear, so I might make the loop of the cable bigger. And the headphones look a bit...odd. But I'm also thinking of making two stencils - one text, one image, so I could do two-colour prints. Not sure what colours, but I'll think about it.
