Current Minimum Charge= $65

To manage the sometimes overwhelming, sometimes spare workload, SPPP is instituting a variable minimum charge; in the spring months when too much work to manage comes in the minimum charge will go up.  In the winter months when little work comes in the minimum charge will go down.  Sorry for the trouble and thanks for understanding -Ty

Lot of work in early February 2016

The great majority of my work is color separation, vectorization and prepress of artwork that screenprinters clients give them, but because I do that well screenprinters trust me with original artwork and designs.  Check it out:

This is for a landscaper. I do landscaping concept design, too.



Fast, cheap $50 design for a screenprinter completely under the gun:



The screenprinter sent the photo, I typeset and color separated this design:

This is not my design, it’s a vectorization and color separation of a photo of this piece of graffitti.  But I was proud of it.  I don’t just vectorize, I augment, which is better then the vector services out there.


Very fun original illustration, my fourth annual for this event:



Some eye-catching t-shirt designs pre-pressed in November

An Original 8 spot color illustration=



These next three were created to have the same look and feel as designs
that the client sent me.  So I re-created those designs, only with the clients’ titles and wordage=

This one is a process print with halftone underbase and spot white.   Process printing
a tie-dye pattern is nice because it’s forgiving; if the colors are a little off nobody
will ever know.




This was many more colors then this.  I had to knock it down in psd channels to
six spot colors, including white base and spot white=


I do white on black garments by creating a grey halftone underbase, then
laying a spot white over it.  That way if it’s too light or dark on press the
grey ink can be adjusted, which is a lot better then adusting on the computer
then re-burning screens.



Here’s a free one.  Pretty often cancer kid t-shirts come through and I can’t bring
myself to charge for them.


I had to get a low rez jpg floral pattern to work in a six spot color shirt.  Lots of
psd smudge tool work.  Grey Underbase, spot white




This is a straightforward but complex vector trace of a pencil drawing scan
that the client sent me.  I wanted to create gradients to make it pop, but
the client was on a supertight budget so wanted it as fast and simple
as possible.  Waddayado?




Woodcut look

I did what I could to give this a woodcut look; started in pen and ink, then moved to photoshop Bitmap filters.  I get the impression that this could be a whole discipline in itself, and I’d like to figure it out
