Albuquerque in Lines / Block-printed T-Shirt / Adult
One-of-a-kind, ethcially made and super soft tees
Your t-shirt will be completely unique because of the block printing process I use to create it:
First, I draw the image onto a rubber block. Next, I carve out all the negative space to leave the image that I want transfered (basically, it's a big stamp). Then, I roll ink onto the stamp and I very, very carefully press it into the fabric. Finally, it undergoes a drying and curing process to ensure ink permanance. This process results in a one-of-a-kind T-shirt every time.
Care: T-shirts may be washed and dried as you would wash and dry your other clothing without adverse affects. However, to prolong the life of your shirt, I recommend washing it in cold to warm water and hang it to dry or using low tumble.
This brand of t-shirts is sweat shop free, child labor free, and WRAP certified (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) meaning the factories are committed to the highest ethical standards of conduct and best quality practices.
The Story Behind The Illustration
I first came up with the idea for this illustration when I was trying to capture the essence of what makes Albuquerque special. Aside from the people, it's the landscape.
The looming Sandia's, the vast desert spaces, the lush Cottonwood Bosque and, the flowing Rio Grande. I've oversimplified these major landforms to allow your own experiences to fill in the details. I hope that you can see the richness and beauty of our city in this minimalist version of it.
Thank you so much for supporting my business!
