possibly a new collection

here's a shirt a designed for my husband during the long weekend. we both like reading the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan and thoroughly enjoyed the new series Heroes of Olympus, with Son of Neptune being the latest and the inspiration of this shirt. i used white fabric pastels on a plain black shirt.

Senatus Populesque Romanus
he liked the shirt (of course he would!) but my husband told me that the shirt wasn't complete, it needed Fulminata (armed with lightning) as the mark of the Roman camp. shoot, how can i forget! while that might have been a slight folly, i need to experiment more on using white fabric pastel as i kind of melts in the fabric when pressed with an iron, giving the print a rather dull rendering. apart from that, i was spurred into making new prints on shirts based on books that i read. how does Ex Libris Collection sound?


  1. Cute! Ex Libris Collection would be a great name and tons of stuff to use as inspiration. The dull finish can make the shirt look distressed on purpose, maybe?

  2. Very cool! I have been meaning to start that series... and I think I may just head over to Amazon and order the first!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. thanks, lostlemonade! i'll experiment more with the white pastel for a more distressed look. :)

    Tiffany, the series is better than the Percy Jackson Series for me, so yes i say you have to grab a copy now! :)
