When my friend Madeleine introduced me to freezer-paper stenciling years ago, she had no idea she empowered me with an endless supply extra-nerdy handmade gifts. Below, a slideshow beginning with the “devolving” Kurt Vonnegut stencil for a t-shirt I made yesterday for my brother-in-law as a belated-Christmas and super early birthday present. I’m also well known in my family for my Levi-Civita, Euler, UCONN and Chaac shirts. Unfortunately, not all of my designs are winners. Grisha politely declined when I wanted to make him a shirt called “Honeymoon indecision 2012, popsicle edition.” And one shirt I made for my brother featuring Stravinsky is commonly mistaken as Hitler. The stencils I used (minus Stravinsky) are below in case you’re ever inspired to make one.
