I think it is awesome. I read in your blog how it was your first one, and not perfect. But the way I see it: it is perfect.

I would rather have an "imperfect" shirt that is unique, than a massed produced one.

So, if you start selling these, please let me know cause I will totally buy one.

Thanks everyone for your shiny comments! I'm having a ton of fun with the shirts.. Today I finished one of the Serenity logo (without the word serenity so far) that I'll post as soon as I take a picture of it... didn't turn out so great on a black t-shirt, but it was another learning experience...

I have no plans to sell shirts at this moment, as this is just a hobby, but if it should ever come to it, I'll let you all know ;o)

Serenity Nesting dolls
I thought I'd share a picture of the Serenity Nesting Dolls I painted up for the auction at Toronto's Can't Stop the Serenity screening this Saturday, June 18th. Painted with love :)

Mal's Pistol - Wilco Resin Reproduction
I finally completed my Wilco version of Mal's Pistol, and Byte wanted to see a picture, so here it is. I carved the grips from apple wood, and while they're not perfect, I'm pretty pleased with the overall effect :o)

'Play' Money
I was playing around with some Bhutanese currency in Photoshop and made these quick and dirty 'Alliance Credit' denominations, just for fun, or to use in a Firefly LARP sometime in the future.
As I said, this was just quick and dirty, so all the bills have the same serial number - I didn't have a high enough quality scan to cleanly remove them. For a quick, fun project I'm happy with them.

Kiss Me
More playing in photoshop. All the images in this pic are from screencaps (thank-you ) but they ended up with a very artsy look to them, as if they were digitally drawn or something, which I thought was kinda cool. I've brought Mal a little closer, and tilted his head toward Inara, and put the shuttle in the background, just for fun.

If I can't be writing, at least I can still do something firefly and creative...

Breaks My Heart
It's been ages since I played around in Photoshop, but I was fooling around and decided I liked this. It even inspired me to write a poem. Here it is, if anyone cares ;o)

I’d like to stop this moment, hold it in time
Remember what it felt like for our hands to entwine
Wishing I could be a part of your world
That I was meant to be here as we twirled
But every guarded touch and every longing glance
That guides us through the steps of this old and tired dance
Breaks my heart a little harder
Makes my heart a little darker
And as every piece gets smaller
Every edge so sharp and bitter
There’s nothing left between us
But the silence that we’ve nurtured
And all I want to do is take you hand
Hold you in my arms and drink your lips like wine
But all along I’ve known you can’t be mine

My 'Fighting Elves' Jayne Shirt
Here's my most difficult silk screen yet... and m new favourite shirt!
The picture doesn't really do it justice, the red is much stronger in real life, and shows up much better against the orange shirt, but the camera seems to distort it... Maybe I should try scanning it...
Anyway, took quite a long time, as I had to wait between each colour for dry time, and I had to do the white circle twice because the black went all wonky on me... didn't do the black outline of the characters etc, I knew I'd never be able to get it right...

My first four T-Shirts
Here's a collected shot of the four shirts I've had a go at silk screening. Each used a slightly differnt method, with different results. By #4, I'm using clear plastic for my stencils, which have made lining up each colour layer much easier.
This is too much fun!
