Behind the Scenes, the Making Process!

I had this documenting-my-work-as-I-go thought in my mind for a while, but with this specific order I got from a collage friend, (who is very picky on things and likes them neat!) I decided to photograph my very basic steps.

The very first step to creation is- of course- come up with a design. I chill for a little bit, lounge, browse the web, listen to music, I don’t know, I do something that  would alert my insides to sketch something.

After that part has come, I SKETCH! Doodle, play around, make variations of stuff what I like best, and what I assume the client would like best.

Then comes the application part. First I draw with a pencil. Because when I make mistakes, I can easily erase them. I align the design, set the size and draw!

After I manage to get through the pile of markers and tubes of paint and tons of sketch papers, I see my beautiful t-shirt between the clouds :p

I decide the colors, as in the sketch something may look good, but on the actual t-shirt, it is a whole new story. With white, i can guesstimate close enough, but especially with darker fabrics, I improvise, umm, almost always!

Besides, the textile paint comes in variations (glitter, metallic) of textures which is hard to mimic on sketch version. So basically, once I have the design idea, I play as I go. 🙂

application of the final design

So you can see I already took a tube of red paint and started applying the design! This part is both fun and scary, because I don’t want to mess up big time with textile paint. I mean, If I do something tiny I can save it right away when it’s wet, but major screw ups are a No-no !

And the FINALE !

Hope she appreciates the fact that I documented my steps and creation process for the Upcoming Madonna concert in Turkey this June.

I will do more Madonna T-shirts posts in the coming days!

Cheers,
