wheel bug.

it's been a really long time time since we've screen printed anything, and i had forgotten how much i enjoy it. we did this shirt for jon's brother david. he studied entomology in college and i guess wheel bugs are his favorite. his super awesome wife becky asked us to make a wheel bug shirt for him as a surprise for their anniversary (and i didn't just ruin a surprise, we made this a couple of weeks ago).

we had a really professional set up with for this one--in the living room, on the coffee table. we did the alignment with masking tape and a good bit of faith. because we want to do more printing in the future, we went ahead and bought a one color printing press. a little too late for this one though. something about hindsight and perfect vision.

the design turned out well i think. i really wanted to add a top hat in the raised hand, but i refrained.

stay tuned for some more super awesome screen printing. i'd love to post about it now, but once again i'm practicing self-control and not ruining a surprise. silly restraint.
