Beep Beep!

ASP Illustration
Alpha Sigma Phi @ UA Love Bus Shirt Design, ink, Spring 2013

______Earlier in the spring semester, I received the opportunity to plan and ink out an illustration for my brother's fraternity, Alpha Sigma Pie.  I mean Phi.  It wound up on a T-shirt dedicated to a trip they all took, and the leader of their fraternity (president? grand overlord? czar? I'm not familiar with Greek life doings) even said he'd consider dubbing me their official T-shirt artist for next year.

______Designing T-shirts for a few extra shillings?  That'd sure put a jingle in my step!

T-shirt design

______(I wasn't the one who colored it in and did the text, just the drawing, but if I were designing that part, too, I'dda picked a more regal font that curved the fraternity name at the top cough justsayingcough)

How cool! You should start putting all your art on tees, I bet you'd make more than just a few extra shillings!

Wow you're really talented lady pie! What an awesome design. Well done, you should be proud and so should your bro! <3

you did a wonderful job!!

That's so awesome that they had you do this! Greek life is weird to me and I don't get it. I like to pretend that my older brother ISN'T the assistant director of greek life at my school and DOESN'T try to force me into it whenever we talk. But that said, milk them for all their worth! This looks amazing and you're so talented! If all T-shirt were designed by you, I might actually like T-shirts more :)

Imogen said...

That's fantastic! It's exciting how successful your design was and all the opportunities it can provide from here on. You're very talented.

Wow, this is so cool! I used to draw a lot and I was pretty good at it, but I stopped doing it for some reason. You're really talented! I agree with you about the font...

Love it! This is great for a graphic t-shirt. And hey, if they wanna pay you that's a pretty sweet deal.

Lily Fang said...

Allliiiii!! This is too cute. I just got back from a crazy week in the middle of nowhere at cross country camp, and the first thing I did was catch up on my favorite blogs, one of which happens to be yours (;

I love the little retro details and how you said Pie at first instead of Phi. All those Greek letter pronunciations get me each time haha. You have a distinct style--I'm not sure how to describe it, but I could definitely tell a piece was yours if it just so happened to pop up anywhere. You go, girl! Keep being a super artist!

Lisa said...

Such a cute illustration! x

Jo said...

I think I might just buy a T shirt designed by you. How about making this a sideline? Your illustration really looks great on the T shirt.

Great art even if you didn't get to do the font and coloring.
