skateboard karate

so i've been obsessed with making stencils to paint on shirts -- i suck at detailed stencils, so stick with obvious silhouetted images i can make from photos. anyway, i made these stencils of two of my favorite things: skateboarder and karate dude! these shirts are embroidered, which looks pretty cool, but i can't wait to paint some up in groovy colors.

is it just me, or does my generation have a bizarre fascination with skateboards? seriously, i'm still attracted to that "skater look" i found so irresistible 20 years ago. hrm. oh, and karate dudes will never not be cool in my book.

Oh love the new designs! I'm with you, I heart skater boys will forever be written on my book bags and everything else. But I prefer Kung Fu over karate :)

Can't wait till Saturday!
