Is it still handcrafted if it’s from an iPhone?

The folks at Lumi have created an iOS app called Lumitype, and used it as the basis for their new silkscreening process.

Read the Design Taxi piece here, and if the pitch gets your tech/craft juices flowing, you can help them out on their Kickstarter. If the idea irks your Handmade Rules ideology, start a conversation in the comments!

T-shirt design winners!

We tallied up the votes from the website and the opening reception, and the winners are…

“Octopus” by Elise Kane                                                                                   “downtown from los angeles street” by Obi-Ike Nwoke

Congratulations to the artists and thank you to everyone who voted!

Today I dropped the images off at Screen Depot on Main Street to be burned onto silkscreens. By Wednesday they’ll be ready to print onto your T-shirts at our screenprinting workshop! The images are black here, but we’ll have a handful of colors to mix and match with. Bring your own shirt if you can, or we’ll have a pile of gems hand-picked from Out of the Closet.

Forecast says rain, but it will be nice and cozy at Home Room. Live music will be provided by DANK WILLIAMS and our own classmate, MS. CULPRIT.
