One of my 3 new hobbies: screen printing

For those of you who don't know, I quit my 9 to 5 last May to pursue my dream of living off of my art. Because this is the slow time of year for arts and crafts shows, I thought I'd put my time to good use and take on some new hobbies and learn something new.
A few weeks back I started shadowing at my uncle's screen printing shop in Medina,NY called "Outdoor Adventures" this past week we finally got to some hands-on work. Yesterday I designed my own t-shirt from start to finish.
I really got to see how much work is involved in screen printing. I designed my own artwork, touched it up on the computer, shot my screen and printed a t-shirt and hoodie.
I think I'm going to have to make at least 6 more T-shirts do I can wear one every day! I'm so proud of them!
