Hey, Hey, Ho Ho...
If you are related to me: please read no further, as this post contains
Holiday Gift Spoilers of an epic variety!
Please come back at a later date and enjoy the post... But for today: avert your eyes!
I have always encouraged Jacob to make his own gifts.In the past we have made tons of really delicious fudge and cute sock dogs and other fine items... But this year I think we are really on to something cool.
Last year Jacob came up with a fun slogan, and using some clip art and computer technology he put together his first T-shirt design.
I taught him to silk screen and voila...
A Handmade Holiday gift perfect for all his
Art School alumni, sci-fi nerdy, aunts uncles and grandpas.
The Soylent Green Ad T-shirt.
It was great watching him debate placement, color combos and the way the positive or negative on the colors changed the design. In his design process he was very clear and specific, combining two graphics and selecting his fonts.
I guess you can tell I am proud.
Now, I just need to get him his own Etsy Shop!
Next Dude Craft: Felt bead necklaces for 3 very feminine preschool cousins, and then something for the grandma's...
