Everybody who follows me on facebook is probably sick of my sourdough pictures. I keep posting them. I can't help it--I'm so excited about what I've learned. I've really come a long way from my first small, flat, brick-like, much-too-sour loaf. Was that only a couple months ago?
I have now learned to harness the powers of organisms too small to see to make something beautiful and delicious!
Its basically like a superpower.
I thought, Wouldn't that be great on a shirt?
Or if that link doesn't work, copy/paste this:
The idea didn't stop there, though.
I thought, there are a whole lot of skills that take a lot of time and study to develop. Skills that are amazing and difficult to understand. So, why not do a whole series of super power images?
Thats what I did.
I have created designs for 10 real-life "superpowers", most of which I don't actually have, but wish I did. I think that the people who do should be able to show off their skills with an awesome t-shirt or poster.
I'm not the first to have this idea. A quick internet search shows me a few shirts saying "I'm a mom, whats your superpower?" and "I'm a dad, whats your superpower?" and a few others--teacher, nurse, firefighter etc. Those are all cool, but I wanted to focus on skill sets that aren't necessarily an occupation, or whatever you call being a mom or a dad. I created designs for "superpowers" which I haven't already seen on a similar shirt--which isn't to say they don't exist, just that I haven't seen them. And, I wanted them to be well designed--most of those I saw were just illustrated with clipart, if at all. I wasn't too jazzed about the font choices either. And the overall design wasn't amazing either. Yeah, sometimes I can be an art snob.
So, this was also an artistic challenge for myself. I wanted to create a set of images that hang together and look good. My criteria were these:
I'll be posting 1 each weekday starting today, until all 10 are posted. Stay tuned!
