The first 'fyxomatosis' tees were baked fresh in the kitchen of a share house in San Francisco.
It was the Spring of 'Oh Four' and it was a seemingly endless summer from Melbourne, Vancouver and then SF.
I took inspiration from the stencil art movement that was taking place in Melbourne around the time and got a scalpel, acetate, foam rollers and tubes of acrylic paint from Blick's on Market. I printed out designs at Kinko's, put the acetate over top, cut out the design. squeezed paint onto a foam roller and 'Voila!'. The first tees I made were for an alleycat race in SF.
Ideas for more tees snowballed from there. It was a messy, time consuming process but I loved the 'made to order' nature as it freed me creatively, and I could make as many - or as few as people wanted from my backpack as I worked my way around the cities of the world.
