Here's an extremely exciting development for Mumble Tease! A new line of KIDS CLOTHING!!! So far I've only got the two designs, but we'll see how these go at some upcoming markets, and if things go as well as I think they might, look out for lots of kiddies stuff in the future. Such cuteness!

These are some collaborative paintings I did with my friend Chika for a group show at The Untitled Arts Society called Ampersand 3. All the pieces in the show were done collaboratively.
I've shown here the paintings, but also some of the sketches that the paintings were based off of. The drawings themselves were done by both of us, with each of us beginning a sketch, and then switching books after random amounts of time until we agreed that they were done. We sketched 20 or so monsters and then chose our favourite six to actually use for the paintings. Which we have even sold already! Neat!

These are some shirts I designed and printed for the band Beekeeper, who are playing a show at the Palamino in Calgary, next Thursday, October the 27th. I quite like how this one turned out! Go check out the show and buy a shirt!

Look! My first shirts printed in four colours on my lovely new four colour printing press dealie!!! This is very exciting! They are for a club at the university that lets students know about arts events around Calgary and provides discounted tickets. It was a great chance to test out the new equipment! I think they turned out pretty well...
And then below are the logo and some variations on it that I provided to go along with the new shirts!

This is a very very exciting post indeed! For my birthday this year, I was given probably the most wonderful gift I've ever gotten! A FOUR COLOR SILK SCREEN PRESS!!!!! And now, after a couple of months of looking at it and wondering how the heck to use it, I have finally made my very first prints!
This one was done on paper with some inks I've never used before, and I definitely need to work out some kinks, but wow am I excited! I can't wait to try it out on fabric! Some pretty sweet four color Mumble Tease creations are in the works!!!

This is the third design I did for Sidney York. I was at her show a couple of weeks ago out in Canmore for what was the best show I've been at in a while. It was in a great venue called The Glue Factory which is above the White Horse Cafe. If you're in Canmore ever, check it out!
Here's some more sketches! The last one is done with some pencil crayons that my mom found at my grandmother's house. They must be at least 40 years old, and came in the awesome retro box and were probably the smoothest pencil crayons I've ever used! The colour went on the paper so nice and creamily! Anyways... that's enough about that...

These are some experimental sweaters I've recently done. I had a great time using the new fabrics I got at a sale a while ago. There's a church near me that has a yearly fabric sale where all the members bring in fabric they no longer want, and all proceeds go to Grandmothers in Africa. There's a whole basement full of fabric with lots of old ridiculous things that you wouldn't be able to find in a store. And great bargains!!
Anyways, to make these one of a kind sweaters, I first silk-screened the silly creature onto the plain fabric, then sewed together the plain and complementary patterned fabric, and then sewed that onto the sweater itself. Time consuming. I really like how they turned out though!
I want to adopt one for myself, but I'm having trouble deciding which one I like the best. I kind of want them all...
