*'NOW'* ~ from hand drawn design by 

1190 views by 22 June 2014

I’ve told the story before of Diane and I living on a beach in Thailand for a few years… basically in recovery from a lifetime of running a business in the United States. When we decided to return to the U.S. folks asked me; “What are you going to DO?” The fact that we hadn’t been DOING much for years, except learning about BEING, didn’t seem to answer their consistent ‘doing’ questions. So, I began to tell everyone I was going to draw on tee shirts. That kind of shut them up… and if not I’d begin to go into great detail about how, what and why I was going to draw on tee shirts.
When we actually got back to the U.S. the questions about what I was going to DO only increased. But, my ready answer of drawing on tees basically worked, though now they wanted to know when they could see some. I purchased various markers, bought used tee shirts and began to draw some in my ‘spare’ time (that’s a joke, all my time is spare, because I only have the NOW moment! lol)
The first t’s turned out well, but they quickly faded in the wash. I told Diane that this one I gave her she could wear, but NOT wash… “It looks so good they won’t notice the smell!” I took a photo of this tee before the design totally washed away… I know (and now you do, too) she doesn’t really pay any attention to me!
This tee is an experiment in fixing the design enough to fix the fade while still leaving the original hand drawn look to it. The drawing before and after was done with various nibbed permanent markers.
Try it with a variety of background colors and see how different each one makes this tee look. Mostly enjoy… and IF you can’t resist… go ahead and buy one!!!
