Every Artist Was Once An Amateur

Every Artist Was Once An Amateur - a look behind the scenes of the creative process from start to finish

Ahh!! Look at that amazing workspace! I don't know about you but I have always been interested in behind the scenes stuff since I was young. I love hearing about the creative process from artists, and it's even better when you get to see it firsthand. That table top shot is just gorgeous, don't you agree?! For my collaboration with Pro World Inc, we used their newly redesigned site, PW Custom to make some awesome custom transfers. You can easily upload your design to the site and they send you a high quality transfer that basically gets ironed onto whatever you want. The quality turns out much like a screenprinted design and looks and feels awesome.

As you may have already seen, I invited guest designer Jill DeHaan for the Your Biggest Fan tees. Well this time around I asked Jordanne Marie to submit some quotes in her amazing style of lettering and we made two of the designs into transfers through PW Custom. I printed them in my studio with the Pro World heat press

They were easy to print and then I sent out the shirts to Jordanne. She was able to get these amazing photos.

Here's what she had to say:

It started out, like many of my endeavors do, as a hobby, I had it on my bucket list to get better handwriting and it seemed like a good enough time as any to start! It's now become my form of meditation, as I take a quote from idea, to sketch, to ink and then finally as I photograph the final image, it feels like a rhythmic melody I get to play every day. Most of my work lives only on Instagram, meant to encourage others on the daily and be a source of inspiration, but every now and then I get a wonderful opportunity to share my art with the world. Getting the chance to actually wear your designs is a pretty incredible feeling, made even more incredible when people actually recognize your style as your own!

Thanks for sharing your amazing skills and beautiful work, Jordanne! You can see more photos and read her blog post here. And thanks to Pro World for collaborating with me on these shirts and post!
