Hi Brad,

Your shirts look terrific. Shame I'm a grown up and they won't fit me. I
was impressed by how clear the images looked on the fabric and I have
thought about doing something similar for myself.

Did you use a special ink to print them? Was it a type of fabric ink or
oil based ink?

Here's an overall image of the block I've been working on today; it will be used for a karazuri - empty printing.

I snapped a few more pictures after knocking off this evening, just a few minutes ago. The light hanging over the bench is giving a bad colour cast to these shots, but anyway, you can still see what's going on (these are clickable for enlargements).
