Albuquerque in Lines / Block-Printed T-Shirt / Kids
Your t-shirt will be completely unique because of the block printing process. First, the image is drawn onto a rubber block. Next, the image is carved out to create a large stamp. Then, ink is rolled onto the stamp and very, very carefully pressed into the fabric. Finally, it undergoes an air-drying and heat-press process to ensure permanance. After this, your one-of-a-kind piece is ready to be delivered.
Because these shirts are made to order and go through a days-long process, please allow at least 7 days for your item to be shipped.
Wash your t-shirt in cold water and air dry to preserve the image. (Okay, I honestly don't take care of my shirts this way and I don't expect you to but be warned that washing and drying with heat can cause slight fading. Clearly, not enough to make me stop though.)

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!
