Our Own Couple Tee: Special Post

A few weeks ago I was busy preparing a birthday present for my girlfriend. I came up with an idea to create a caricature of herself. I been practicing a lot to create a not-so-good-but-easily-identifiable-visual-likeness caricature. I was almost frustrated because none of my drawings were look alike. A total failure, like this one, when the deadline was getting tighter. Last week, I said to myself, "this is my last attempt. If I fail, then I am gonna buy her something else."


The rough sketch wasn't good enough, but look alike ;) I created it on my phone then exported it to Adobe Photoshop. Here, I made some huge changes to the detail of her face. Here are some of the screenshots during the making of her caricature.

Violaaa!

I managed to create a caricature of her. Next, I remembered that she really wanted to have a tee of her caricature on it. So, I created a concept of the tee like this one.


After finishing the concept of her tee, I went to a digital printing workshop to make the tee. The result was good enough. So, I met her on Sunday, June 17 2012, which was her birthday, to give her this present. She really liked the tee and was very excited to put it on right away.

One thing she didn't know was that the tee has a pair. She once asked me why there was such a text "He likes England". Then I told her, "You'll see, hunny." Then we went to the digital printing workshop again and here we go, the other tee.

She really was surprised that it's a couple tee. I still remember her expression when knowing it was a couple tee. After putting on the tee, we went to some places to spend some time together. June 17 2012 was her birthday, and the day before I went to Hong Kong.


"It's a special gift", she said.
