One of my biggest goals since starting blogging was to design my own products. I had these designs in my head for the last couple years, but I kept putting off actually executing them. Once benefit of quarantine was finally being forced to slow down and focus on making these designs come to life. The first design I shot was this darling t-shirt. I wanted to incorporate the word "darling" into one of the designs. I also added in the heart shaped sunglasses graphic, another one of my signatures. I love baseball t-shirts, so I thought this silhouette would be fun for something different as well and a nice pop with the graphic.
born in the wrong decade
The "born in the wrong decade" is the next style I shot. I wished I could have shot these photos somewhere cooler, but with the pandemic, I had to stick to my bedroom with my record player and rotary phone. I knew I definitely wanted a design in mustard yellow, one of my signature colors, and I thought this phrase would speak to all the other old souls out there like me. I'm thinking of adding this t-shirt in more color ways, what do you think?
back in the saddle
The "back in the saddle" was the third and final design I shot. I took these photos outside a diner in South Jersey, close to where my family lives. This design was the first one that came to mind and sparked the idea of designing my own products in the first place. I drew the saddle shoes on Adobe Illustrator, so this was the most time consuming design to make.
