While Susie and I were out shopping on Main Street on Friday, she took some photos for me.

Here's one of the t-shirts I made this week. I really enjoyed making this shirt, it was a departure from the way I usually do things. It's not actually a great photo of the shirt, but it has two things going for it:

1. I look less fat than in the other photos (vanity, thy name is Mandy).
2. Behold the glory that is spring in Vancouver! Behold it!!!

Click for big.

Oh, forget the damn t-shirt. I'll take some photos of it lying flat, so you can see the things I like about it, which make it interesting. I'll photograph the other shirt I made, too.

How about some more of that glorious spring? How about... some spring, with lovely Susie (squinting a bit because of the sun), and a random car? Yes, that's the ticket. Again, click for big.

Great T-shirt (it looks pieced and shaped, is that right?), lovely blossom and nice tattoo (is it a moth?).

I really like the t-shirt design, but I am detailed look at it would be great.

OK, you're making me miss Vancouver again! The shirt is great… but those cherry blossoms… if I send you a pic of Calgary… trust me… there will be no cherry blossoms. Heavy sigh…
