Graduated Glücksbärchi airbrushed painted previous project next project textile painting home


Each year, there is a volleyball tournament for employees of HP. Of cause, each team distinguishes itself from the others by a special jersey shirt. Some creative (lazy?) folks once even dressed up in plastic shopping bags. Most teams use iron-on transfers to attach the team logo to their T-shirts. The team which I joined painted the shirts themselves.
That year, we called ourselves "Glücksbärchis", after some TV animated cartoons. This page shows the airbrushed version that I created as a quick test and showcase for the others.

This is the airbrushed version. Go to the painted version.


Below, you see the enhanced source image that is well suited for my shine-through method. Using a black ink marker, I traced the important outlines.
