Doodle Shirt

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to try doodling on a t-shirt to give to my best friend for her birthday. I have been dying to do it but haven’t had much time with fixing up, moving, packing, and unpacking into my new house. I was thrilled that she loved it! Just like my Doodle Bags, I immediately started drawing directly onto the t-shirt with the Sharpie Rub-a-Dub marker. I thought it would be flattering to make it look like the doodle was falling from the shoulders and showering down the front. With how busy I have been, this project eased my need to create artwork a bit.

After I gave her the t-shirt, my friend saw one of my Doodle Bags and ended up buying it to take on a trip with her! I will post up photos of the bag tomorrow if I have time.

  1. That’s a very cool, special, and meaningful piece of art.
    Great idea, Jaime! Also glad you’re getting your art fix in a special way.
    I’ve been in a similar “boat” when it comes to art time, lately, and I sympathize. Doing something like this is excellent!

  2. Beautiful art, and a terrific ’60s vibe, love that.

  3. Jose- Thank you! Time can be an artists enemy right? 🙂 I can’t believe that it is going to be the Fourth of July tomorrow. It doesn’t seem possible! Glad you liked the t-shirt!

    Sharon- Yes, it does have a ’60s vibe! I kept thinking hearts, flowers, and lace while I was drawing on the t-shirt. Thank you for the comment!

  4. Jamie… awesome job. How does that hold up in the wash ? AND… do the markers come in other colors ?

  5. Thanks, Marty! I am not sure how the shirt itself will hold up. I told my friend to let me know how it goes. 🙂 She knows it is experimental. Hehe. Sharpie has developed the pen specifically for this type of use, and it is supposed to withstand dry cleaning! I did do a swatch test, and it was fine on the swatch after a few washes. But you can never be too sure. I wish the markers came in other colors, but so far they have only developed black. I am also wanting to test out their latest paint markers to see if they would hold up as well.

  6. Cool…. I used to do a little designing directly on t-shirts, using fabric markers, but didn’t see any really $ in it. But for something like you did, it seems really cool !

  7. It could possibly turn into something to sell in the future but for right now, I knew it would be something my best friend would enjoy. She loves what I create and has been wanting me to make her some custom shirts like that for a while now. 🙂
