About the design
on March 7, 2008
Hi, this is my sub for the Hot Chip glow ink contest. I wanted the use of the glow ink to have a point, and not just be used for the sake of using it. Here, the glow effect takes this nice design of a copy machine on a t-shirt and gives it a whole new meaning once the lights go down. I decided to do this design on a light colored shirt, to make the glow aspect a nice hidden surprise. As for the ghost, I wanted him to look Casper-esque, bubbly and cute. I also thought giving him legs (and little ghost pants) was a nice touch and made the idea stronger. Hope you enjoy it. I think it turned out pretty well.
-6 colors, including glow ink.
-Shown here on light gray, but it would look great on any light colored shirt: white, cream, light blue, mint, yellow.
-Glow ink, although transparent, would appear very, very faint on the shirt when not in a dark room.
