Honouring My Teacher - Turning a Photo Into a Sketch and a T-Shirt

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share a kind of peaceful joy with everyone  :smile: and also credit Sylvie with the idea...

Several years ago, I did a sketch off of a photo of my coach from probably the 80s, but left it unfinished. Several months after starting the sketch, my sketchbook was stolen, so the sketch could never be completed. 

I did have a photo of the incomplete work. This weekend, I took inspiration from Sylvie making T-shirts of Karuhat: I stylized that photo of the original sketch and printed it on a t-shirt to gift to my coach for his 60th birthday.

I am glad the incomplete sketch became complete in such an unexpected and meaningful way. 

Thanks for reading and Thank you Sylvie for the inspiration.
