Back in the saddle?

Some will remember when I used to tie-dye and crest fashions in that medium. That was over a decade ago. It was tedious work which liberated my tub from its glossy finish. I decided that I would continue working in fabric but leave the hand dying to others. This summer as I explore t shirt augmentation again I thought about doing some dying then I came to my senses: I really don't have time, money or energy to dedicate to the process. Then came a compromise in the form of discharging dye with bleach. I have admired and own creations by Newark artist Gerry Gant who is the inspiration for this seasons frolic with cotton jersey. Everyone loves the comfort of a t-shirt. With the addition of some cuts, stitches and some crafts surface design I hope to create a few hits for the wardrobe this season.
