12 days of christmas
12 illustrated tshirts
The concept for TeeTwelve.™ came about when I received an edition of my monthly tshirt subscription from Sweden. That particular day I happened to be fresh out of clean tshirts, and because I hadn't seen the design or had been told when it would arrive, I was overjoyed at receiving and wearing it.
With Christmas coming up I thought it could be an exciting project, to make tshirts to replace the usual chocolate in an Advent calendar.
Art directed by Adam Brandon, Annabel Stevens and myself we decided to focus on the twelve days referenced in the infamous song of the same name, with it's wealth of visual possibilities. Other contributors include Jack Boulton, Emma Brown, Jacqueline Williams, Nia Banwell and Katrina Currie.
If you would like to receive a copy of any or all of the 12 designs, we will be doing two live screen printing events at Manchester Metropolitan University (dates tbc). We will have white tshirts in S mens and M mens and paper for posters, but we welcome you to bring your own tshirt/bag/sweater/paper/etc. Please keep in mind we will be printing in black ink though, so the lighter the stock colour the better.
The set could make a fantastic christmas present that can be worn all year round, as the illustrations don't directly reference the holiday in the usual way. We will publish pricing costs shortly. All profits will go towards the third year degree show.
It must be stated that we as individuals, are not anti-religious in any way, the designs are not intended to be offensive, merely light hearted satirical commentary, of the themes from the song.
We hope you enjoy wearing the tshirts as much as we have making them.
