As Fred and Uli were explaining Stencil, the t-shirt are based on an old TV Smith photograph of mine that I loaned to Jock a few years back. He still has it I hope. His wife (and fellow TUT) Carol painted the image and it is still one of my most favourite possesions. She went on to also paint a great image of Gaye Advert, then Billy Idol and The Clash.

They are truly superb works of art.

Jock and I loved the TV image so much that Jock sourced a printed t-shirt. TUTS could buy a special TUTS version. Unfortunately ex Adverts drummer Laurie Driver took exception to the fact it had The Adverts No Time To Be 21 on it and this started a series of events that lead to the t-shirt no longer being produced.

The good news is that Stencil's post has started a demand for more of these awesome t-shirts...

Hi TJ

Yeh we do have the cutting of TV you so kindly loaned us , we shouldve sent it to you when we said we would eh , instead of meeting to hand it over like we decided to do --that never worked   lol   ...i'll get it put into cardboard and kept nice n flat , and send it on  - its like new TJ ...still in the same plastic bag you sent it in .

I aggree - the Gaye pic would make a superb shirt as well ... ill get onto sussing out good shirt suppliers again i think ..  the blokes at Punks Not Dad have a good supplier TJ ..i wonder if they could help perhaps ?   

Watch this space tho cos im thinkign about going on a course to learn Screen printing , theres a studio at Dundee which about 40 minutes drive from where we live , so im seriously thinking about going for the course , that way id be able to print my own designs. 
Bloody hell !

Can't do that I'm afraid Stencil as Jock's wife Carol owns the copywright as she painted the photo.

What we can hopefully do is persuade Jock to have some more printed for you (and us) and then you can have an original. :D

Anything to make Jock and Carol a few bob is well okay by me. :D

do you have the photo of that t-shirt stencil?
if you have the photo and i make it in "stencil-style", nobody acts against copyrights  :D

here's my first tv smith stencil shirt (i had some problems with the lettering stencils, so it's not 100% perfect  ::) )

I don't care about copywrights that much either Stencil but I do care about all the time Carol spent painting those beautiful works of art so with that shirt I'd rather we had them printed and pay the cash to Carol and Jock (who is one of the biggest contributors to the forum).

Hope you understand.  :D

By the way a very warm welcome to the TUTS Fab and Stencil.  :D

did she made the whole shirt you wore at the earthbound gig herself?
and all with stencils?
i'm just wondering if that shirt is possible with stencils, but i can't see the shirt good enough on the two pics of you...

thanks for the welcome  ;)

Jock and Carol had the t-shirt manufactured by a t-shirt distributor, Stencil.

I get the feeling that you know about Stencils than I do, Stencil. ;)

By the way this was the real welcome...
