'09 Volleyball T-Shirt Design
Because my husband is the head girls' volleyball coach at Sunset High School and my daughter is on the team, I get to design a volleyball t-shirt for the camp each year. It can be intimidating, frustrating, and fun!
Intimidating because I want to create a design that girls and boys ages 12-18 will like. The timing is perfect, however, because I can look through the back-to-school ads to see the latest fashion trends.
It can be frustrating because I'm not savvy on the computer and do all the art by hand, hoping that I give the printer enough information and they can figure out what I want! They did a fabulous job!
Fun because it is so different from the other art I am doing and my kids get excited and involved and I see my t-shirts all around the school!
I used watercolor paper, ink, a dip pen, water sprays, salt and splatters for texture.
