I found this awesome art on pinterest (the better image on right). Now the artist, Stephanie d'Entremont, has several incredible Star Wars pieces, but the R2-D2 one really intrigued me.
I could wax on and on about all the things that I love about this piece of art, or I can get to the good stuff - pictures.
I blended several colors to vary the shade of blue in a vain attempt to simulate the attractive color combinations found in the original.
While I loved the image, my hand also started to hurt while cutting this stencil, so at some point I decided that I would cut EVERYTHING out. When I removed the stencil, I felt like the blank spaces were too.... empty. So I challenged myself to hand paint a few details.
Luckily, they turned out pretty well.
Now my son has one of the most awesome t-shirts EVER. I still have one more stencil, which I have not yet decided whether to use it on a t-shirt for myself or to be selfless yet again.
Hope this brightened someone else's day.
