ACL and then the trunk show the following week.
I did make time to help my good friend Kat (and Theresa, her partner in Studio 1408 crime) with their super awesome Obamarama screen printing extravaganza. What an incredible event. If I thought it wasn't a crazy amount of work for them, I'd try to convince them to have another one. People were so pumped carrying out their freshly minted Obama originals. The enthusiasm was contagious. I like my shirt so much, I even wore it! I never wear t-shirts with things on them.
I like the one of her in action, too. I don't know how many people showed up (alot!) but I think everyone had at least 3 Ts. That's a buttload of shirts hanging back there. She also has a giant screen that she used to make sheet signs for the event, but I didn't get a pic. Average Jane got a pic of the screen itself, but not of the image it creates. I'm sure I'll be able to find one somewhere on the web at some point. Anyway, the reason I bring it up is that I'm bummed that I didn't bring some sheets so I could have had Kat screen the heck out of them. How fun would it be to claim to be sleeping with Obama!!? Sorry Michelle.
How does all this tie into reuse, you might ask? Well, for the most part, it doesn't. However, I did notice that many people were using shirts they already owned. Actually, my favorite shirt was a well-worn, once dark blue shirt with a crackly, plastic-y Wonder® bread logo with our man screen right below. I should have made her stop for a pic. . .
Theresa saw this post and was kind enough to send along a pic of the aforementioned WONDER OBAMA shirt.
