Jamie Miller owns Collage, an art & vintage shop in downtown Charleston, WV. And she's one of my besties. She asked me to design a t-shirt for an idea she had. She wanted the words "The State I'm In" in a handwritten font inside an outline of our home state. I loved the previous design evolution posts (a logo, a street art project) so I took some snaps along the way to share.
First I traced the WV outline, using my old laptop screen as a lightbox, and warning Molly never, ever to do that. Our printer's out of ink, so my usual high tech 'Tape it to a Window' lightbox technique was unavailable. Then I "sculpted" the lines to thicken and Heidi-fy it.
She liked the outline best, and wanted #2 but all inside the state, so that was our final look for a couple of days. After sleeping on it, she sent me some new ideas.
And now we have a happy Art Shop Mama and a happy doodly blogger designer, and soon, Collage will have new tees!
