I hardly have any t-shirts for sale on my Zazzle stores. I am afraid of t-shirts, I confess! I keep confortable when creating for paper. But textile creation is hard on me. As I see it, doing graphic design and doing graphic design specifically for t-shirt printing are two totally different things. I'm used to paper. I'm used to create logos and handouts and postcards and posters. I feel confortable with paper but not with textile design. It's something that people will wear. It's scary! But every now and then I think about creating some really cool tshirts. I did some research into the existing t-shirt fashion online market. There's a huge t-shirt online market! After a close look to hundreds of tees, its trends, designs, colors, I don't know if there is anything else to write or draw or paint about on a t-shirt! So, here's the first post about some t-shirts blogs and sites I found. Let's take a look!
