Happy Summer Solstice! Today is the first day of summer, and the longest day of the year. The weather has been beautiful here lately. Not too warm, not too cool, with clear blue skies, which is unusual for Los Angeles at this time of year.
Here are two sheer jersey summer shirts I dyed and printed today:
This time I dyed the shirts before printing, so I started with a colored background instead of a white background. I think they look better that way.
I like this monoprint technique. Every shirt turns out different, even if the colors I use are the same. I never know quite what to expect, which opens the door for serendipity.
