Floral "Peace" Design by reflector

T-Shirts & Hoodies

Clothing Style:
Available to buy on…

A T-shirt design made using a bunch of my most recent digital macro/floral photographs which were all extracted from their backgrounds and then assembled to spell the word Peace. This is the first time I’ve used photographed objects to create the impression of text.

All of the shots were taken using a Canon 450D (except the “Starlight” bloom which was taken with a Sony Cyber-Shot) and the editing was done in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    ooh very nice! I used to paint flowers all over tees once. I still have jars of fabric paint.

  • Thanks Ginny! I’ve had this idea for a month or two and the “Flora T-Shirt” was originally supposed to turn out like this but at the time it all seemed “too hard”. :))

    Beautiful creation James! Love the red! :o)

  • The original on my PC is on a Red/Marone Base like this depiction, but I hid that Layer so it can easily be printed on a shirt that’s any colour. Thanks for your comment! :))

    This is a great tee! I love the whole “hippie” concept! XXSUEXX

  • Thanks Sue, I’m glad you liked the concept! :)) It took a lot of work to make the center of each letter spacious enough to make the letters discernible.

    peace and love brother, that;s a good one James

  • Right on! :)) I almost made it a Love T-Shirt but changed my mind. This was a very fiddly design, even though I’d already cut the flowers out for the Valentines card.

    Never would have picked you for a flower child reflector, but nice work – we’ll see you wearing one of these, then?

  • Thanks!

    I’m not a Flower Child but that doesn’t mean I can’t design for people who might like flowers, peace and harmony. I won’t be wearing my own work – that’s not why I’m here. :))
