Night time doodles

I’m trying to come up with more print designs so I can make more interesting cycling jerseys. These both need a little more work and design if I am going to use them but I think it’s a good start.

Crow and Poppy

I think this should be a hand embroidered piece. I has such a nice folk feel.

I drew the crow and poppies in the train one evening and the skull idea just barely popped into my head. I’m not sure about the stripes and polka dots. I think it looks a little too much like the U.S. flag but it’s a good start.

Skull and star

Dead Crow Society

A long time ago My friend and I decided to start a bicycle crew called the Dead Crow Society. After many sketches I finally came upon a design I liked and here it is!

We wanted to have an 1800’s occult feel. The cycling community is a bit dull and all the years of being in the punk and goth scene are hard to shake.

The design in the top right corner is the result of an awesome bike ride and being completely drunk! On the left a sketch of a potential jersey. (I sew as well)

I decided that the simple illustration needed more and so I grabbed my protractor and compass and added a little more frill.

The jerseys are handmade by myself, from the pattern to the sewing.  The silk and block printing is done by myself as well. If you are curious about my sewing you can see more at ghprs.wordpress.com
