It is not just tracing. Here is an example of how I make one of my Pop Icons. This particular icon features Ray Charles as the subject. See the full line of t-shirts from robots to rock stars or check out the whole database of icons at Tumblr.
31 music icons of the 1980’s all on one tee. Our classic design from 2009 features pop-icons from the era of Mtv music video — alongside some early legends of what later became the “independent” music scene in the ’90s and some of the most influential artists from the ’80s New Wave phenomenon.
This version #2 also includes 2 new icons not previously seen in version #1.
The previous version on Alstyle in Highlighter (seen above) or Sepiatone is now on sale for only $17. Just choose “Alstyle -$5” under the Brand selector.
A bunch of new prints suddenly appeared on chopshopstore.com and are even nerdier than a whole boat load of robot icons. Nerd Rider (left) is actually the original version of a tshirt that has mysteriously disappeared from our collection due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control. The Craftsman (center) was inspired by the video game World of Warcraft and the actual real-life appearance of most of the “warriors” that play the game. Finally, The Squid and the Robot (right) was inspired by the prevalence of of both squids and robots in tshirt designs during the year 2009.
All digital prints are produced and printed on archival Moab Rag Bright white and the weight is 190 GSM. The size of these particular 3 pieces is 13″x19″.
