John Isaacson has been screenprinting on t-shirts, paper, and tree
bark for over ten years. He is also a cartoonist and musician
living in Berkeley, California. He has lived in Ireland, Peru,
Chile and China, and is currently at work making comics, t-shirts,
and teaching an afterschool cartooning class.
"Now, thanks to this wonderful comic book, I can make screen prints at home, too! It's a bit more complicated, especially if you want more than one color, but John breaks down the process into easy-to-understand steps. He shares his experiences selling his work, moving out of his house and into mass-production and gives helpful hints to DIY printers along the way." - Xerography Dept
"Ever wanted to make your own t-shirts? Ever thought that it would be way too complicated and/or expensive to even try, so you gave up right away? This book will prove you wrong. It's a step by step instruction guide for how to make your own shirts whether you have access to state-of-the-art materials or not, or even (potentially) if you don't even have electricity." - Optical Sloth "Like Scott McCloud's landmark books, this is a textbook written in comics form. Isaacson tells the story using an autobiographical approach, as if he's learning right along with his readers. His personality and enthusiasm for the subject comes through to add extra interest to all the instructions and details." - Midnight Fiction
