Fun Monday # 38~ Clothing Art.



This week's Fun Monday is being hosted by that very popular animal lover, Willowtree, he wants to see some clothing art. That's tee shirts, baseball caps, hoodies, sports uniforms or any bit of clothing that you or your kids own that has interesting, funny or artistic graphics.

I wanted to keep it simple so not a lot of explanation. Until about a year ago Sam worked at ILM and after the films were completed they had the opportunity to buy momentos made for the crews. So naturally we all got the benefit as Sam used to send us T-shirts amongst other things. Some I have still kept in the original packaging as I think they will become collectors items and I wasn't able to photograph those properly!!

I will also just mention the second t-shirt top line which is very old and well worn it was given to me by Ian Bird who produced the original music video, for the Pet Shop Boys 'Liberation' Album. (not sure if it will play that well it was a bit jumpy on UTube).


Now head over to Willowtree he has a nice collection and you can see everyone else who is playing today.

Great shirts, you were so lucky to have an inside track!

Cool shirts, varied themes. We are a one note bunch at my house! I need a HP one myself...

Mum people probably don't just know what ILM is - you might have to add a link or a wiki

 
At 22/10/07 16:20, Blogger Pamela said...

I don't picture you wearing T-shirts...

Were you wearing it when he signed it.. just wondering.

 
At 22/10/07 16:46, Blogger Beckie said...

I didn't know what ILM was until I googled it before I read Sam's comment. That is way cool. I bet that was an interesting job for Sam with some unique perks!

Beccy cracks me up - I wish I had a sister.

Great collection!

Cool collection! I don't think I can listen to an entire Pet Shop Boys song, though:o)

 
At 22/10/07 17:28, Blogger frannie said...

what a cool collection!

Lisa that one is definitely my favourite but it's Dillon not Ben. It was for Christmas 1994. It doesn't seem like 13 years ago!

sayre that one that is still in the packet.

Alix HP is also in mint condition.

Beccy I did forget to thank you as I was doing this post so quickly. It is a very poor post I know. If Sam had been able to give me that photoshop lesson. I would not have to rely on you for making picasa collages for me.xx

blue momma I have to say I'm really too old to wear these now.

sam thank you for doing the links for me xx

pamela you're right about my image!!

beckie I have to keep in with both of them~ see how difficult it is. They soon pull me up if I slip~ poor me!

That is a great array, and you are lucky to get them. Thanks for sharing you bounty.

AFF it can be useful.

robin Sam was able to take me out to George Lucas's ranch for lunch one time.

I feel left out. I only have three t-shirts that have a graphic.

nice mosaic!

I enjoyed hearing the Pet Shop Boys again and watching the video. Your special t-shirt collection does have some interesting momentos.

What cool t-shirts! That band sounded a lot like the Bee Gees. I always loved them.

 
At 23/10/07 04:20, Blogger my4kids said...

Cool movie shirts! That is fun that they were able to buy the shirts after the filming. I probably wouldn't have been smart enough to keep them in packaging.

 
At 23/10/07 05:48, Blogger lisa's chaos said...

I like the last one on the right the best. :)

 
At 23/10/07 06:39, Blogger Katie McKenna said...

Wow! Interesting set of t-shirts!

A very lucky Mum you are!
Great collection of T-shirts! A.I. is one of my favorite movies.

I especially loved the one with you and Dillion. It is hard to believe that 13 years have gone by. That's a great idea to have your favorite photo on a T-shirt!

Hope you have a great week!

Oh, we've had some very chilly, windy weather, that's coming to an end, and it's supposed to warm up again. :( But it's been really nice and Sunny here.

Well done Chris. Nice selection, I guess this proves that you have no class (at least according to the Beccy barometer!)

 
At 23/10/07 08:32, Blogger Beccy said...

All is forgiven mum.

Ouch WT!

 
At 23/10/07 11:00, Blogger ChrisB said...

Lisa's chaos that last one 'Anna Marie Island' is getting very old but it was from my Florida holiday. I'll have to go back to get another!!

 
At 23/10/07 15:12, Blogger Deborah said...

Wow Chris... you could open a shop! ;-)

Yes, I like Mars Attacks too!
