Today, i shipped out a fresh new design, both featuring vespas, my favorite relaxing, vacationing, traveling tool. He apparently likes them so much, i made a “favorites” tee, with vespa featuring second place along with sushi and a computer. What? Yea, you read it correct. BUT, more on that later!

Bugun, yepyeni ve eglenceli bir tasarimimi yolladim. Tema, vespa idi. Iki yaptigim tisortte de basrolde oynayan, rahatlatici, tatili ve gezmeyi animsatici, bayildigim vespalar! Musterim de vespayi o kadar seviyormus ki, bir tisortte tek basina, digerinde ise sushi ve bilgisayar ile paylasti basrolu. Ne? Neyse, bunun hakkinda daha sonra aciklama yaparim, belki.. 🙂
Heeeeey Fellas, long time, no see, huh? I am not going to give the excuse ” golly, i’ve been under satan’s yoke doing this and that” (even though it’s an accurate excuse)
But I was enjoying this specific project quite a lot! It did take a lot of time, and effort, sure, but on top of that the quantity was really notable!
One of the members of this “Dance Club” contacted me asking for matching t-shirts for all of the students in their class. (A very diverse crowd, mind you, ranging from 40 year-olds to 8 year olds)
So I was more than happy to do it, it was also hilarious that they wanted “We’re not Normal!” written on top of each shirt, with lip figures for girls and satan’s prong for boys. To make things more ‘couture’, I suggested we make each lip a different shade of red/rose and the prongs vivid green. They wanted purple letters on top of white t-shirts.

Heeeeey, dostlar, uzun zaman oldu degil mi? Peki, tamam size “Offf cok yogundum, kafami kasiyamiyordum” bahanesini vermeyecegim. (Gercekler bu olsa da…. )
Isin asli, bu proje gercekten yapmaktan keyif aldigim bir calismaydi. Epey zaman ve emek aldi, almasina ama bunun tek sebebi sayinin cok fazla olmasiydi!
Dans Klubunden biri benimle iletisime gecti ve tum ogrencilere takim bir seri yapmami istedi. (Ogrenci dediysem de 40 yasindan 8 yasina kadar turlu turlu insanlardan bahsediyoruz 🙂 )
Beyaz tisortler uzerine mor renkte “We’re not normal!” (normal degiliz) yazmami istediler. Son derece eglenceli bu fikir ile seve seve yapacagimi soyledim. Kizlara dudak sekli, erkeklere ise seytan asasi istediklerinde, olayi daha da kisisellestirmek icin dudaklarin renklerini farkli yapalim ve seytan asasi da fosforlu yesil olsun, dedim.
Ortaya bu cikti:
I came up with this:
When I got the “Aaaaweesomeeee” feedback I wanted from the client, I went for it for the girls, but I used different shades of pinks and purples just to keep me instrested to paint the same design over and over again.
– – – – – –
“Hariiiiikaaaa olmuuus” cevabini aldiktan sonra, kizlarinkini yapmaya basladim. Ayni deseni cok sayida tisorte tek tek yaparken hem sikilmayayim, hem de ilginclik olsun diye farkli tonlardaki pembe ve morlari yazilarda da kullandim.
I even patterned the inside of some letters (we’re) with dots and lines and grid. (Yes, I am crazy just like that)
– – – – – –
Bazi yazilarin icine (we’re) puantiyeler, cizgiler, kareler gibi desenler bile koydum (Ya, iste oyle bir deliyim ben de)
I made a sum of 14 t-shirts, I even threw in some “I’m not normal!”s which was the initial order, but then the class changed their mind. Since the typography (and the philosophy!) on the t-shirts were so good, the client wanted them anyway, and who was I to refuse?
– – – – – –
Toplam 14 tane tisort yaptim. Hatta ilk basta istedikleri “I’m not normal” calismalari (ve arkasindaki felsefe :p) o kadar tatli oldu ki, onlari da almaya karar verdiler. Kimim de boyle bir teklifi reddediyorum, degil mi?
(I went a little overboard with this one ^ patterning ALL the letters)
And here are the labels: Fit’n Dance by equin-co!
(Yukaridakinde biraz abartiya kacip tum harflerin icini desenledim)
Asagida etiketler; “Fit’n Dance by equin-co”
For those of them who wanted initials at the back, I made initials!

Isteyenler icin isimlerinin bas harftlerini sirtlarina yazdim.
So you know how like to gather up mindless surprised curious owls in a bunch and call them a “crew” or “buddies”. The creation of this latest version took a little more than I expected, because, well, it did!
I wanted something different, something a little diverse in this set, because everyone seems to dig my owl collection, so I wanted to offer something more versatile to every customer.
Just in case, I’ll add the former ‘original’ set of the crew, so you can see the difference for yourself.
Tipi kayik, saskin, merakli ve bisssuru baykusu bir araya toplayip onlara “ekip” demeyi ne kadar cok sevdigimi biliyorsunuz. O yuzdendir ki, “owlsome crew”un bu son versiyonunun yaratim sureci tahminimden biraz daha uzun gecti. Cunku.. cunku, iste!
Daha farkli, daha baska yerlere bakislar atan, garip baykuslar istedim bu sefer. Herkes bu baykus ekibini cok seviyor olmali ki, musterilere daha degisik bir seyler sunmak istedim.
Nolur noolmaz, ben yine de ‘orjinal’ ekibi de ekleyeyim, farkliliklari kendiniz kesfedin!
This just in; Ekin creates this ‘order’ in the lack of a plain t-shirt !
Luckily it turned out great and the client loved it 🙂 The pocket detail was a minor one, and I thought I could still pull of a little line *and* have a great design in the front.
But I didn’t want any fuss at any point of the shirt, so I thought “why not include it in the design?” The zip acted like a cute mouth to the monster and It made the client want to throw some actual cookies in! At least that’s what She said !!
