A few days ago I shot some photographs for Fingers Duke’s new clothing items with a lovely friend of mine named Marti. Here are a few of my favorites!
Shooting people in this manner isn’t really my forte, but it’s always fun to play with new and different things. I feel that I stretched the single available light fairly well. Thankfully I had my reflector handy!
Printed freshly today! The Dead Girl shirt! The folks over at fingers Duke were printing these late into the evening so they could have them ready for a new t-shirt Tuesday.
Plus, it’s GLOW IN THE DARK. I’m going to turn out the lights where ever I go just so I can use it like a flashlight to see. I’m sure that I’ll have to be careful not to aim it directly at people so I don’t blind them (with awesome).
I’m excited to see this design printed, or at all for a few reasons. This design was one I had done a couple of years ago (2010), and to have it show up again was quite my hearts delight! I was 100% sure that this was one of the designs that had gone up in smoke in the great 2011 digital fire and computer crash. So to get have it printed now, well, I did a merry little jig!
The initial conversation went sorta like this is a nutshell.
Fingers Duke, “Hey Joe, you remember that day of the dead girl that you designed a couple years ago? We were wondering if we could print those?”
Joe, “I wish you could my friends, but alas they have left the digital realm and only exist on a higher plain now.”
Fingers Duke, “Come again?”
Joe, “They got deleted when my computer and backup went down.”
Fingers Duke, “Oh, weeellll, we just found a copy of the files on one of our computers, so we can just print from that.”
Joe, “…….Awesome….” Then the single tear rolled down my cheek as I realized that maybe life was more like the movies than I had acknowledged.
All that aside they’re a very cool shirt that is very appropriate for the halloween season. Also they are printed in a verity of styles ranging from tee to hip loose sweatshirt type deal.
Also, about this top design, I took the original photos of the wolf and the magpie in Alaska.
Here’s the other shirt that will be going to press soon! Watch the Fingers Duke store for them to become available, OR better yet, I’ll post a couple of pictures of the done products soon as they’re printed!
