Remaking a destroyed t-shirt: Fugazi Repeater photos

I absolutely love Fugazi’s Repeater all the way through, great album. Used to listen to it a lot when I was younger. The cd booklet contained some of their best B&W photos. Going through these I came up with the idea of placing 2 square photos on a t-shirt, the guitarist and bass player turning their backs to the photographer and each other, but kind of like jamming or something like that.

I have to say that I did print that t-shirt  first at a tees printing shop in my neighbourhood, used a plain white one. That was quite a long time ago. Well, that one didn’t survive to see much, it was thrown away after getting soaked in red wine along with some other clothes back in 2003.

As I was really fond of it, I just had to reproduce it once again by myself. Nothing difficult there, 2 black & white photos scanned and lightly photoshoped, I used a color tee this time (should have sticked to a white one, I think it looked much better) and it was ready.

Got this for about a decade now, it seems to be getting pretty worn down so a new reproduction might be on its way.
