Process

A short bio from Tyler of Tshorts, on his artistic process….

“Ive always been interested in the challenge of drawing someone and making it recognizable to their character. So portraits have always been my favorite. But I love doing any kind of art whatever it may be. I always worked with graphite and a little prismacolor. Then about five years ago started drawing on shirts with sharpies with the liking of them being one of a kind. A lot of people have asked how the shirt doesn’t snag and move around. It’s all in the pressure of the pen. I also use older markers that have dried out a bit for the lighter shading. That way you don’t have to be so careful. I definitely have messed up some shirts a few hours in though.”
