Stenciled shirt for a guy

I stenciled a bunch of stuff today, but I made this robot t-shirt for the fiance who likes nerdy t-shirts.  On one of our fave shows, The Big Bang Theory, the main characters are science nerds and wear cool Urban Outfitters-esque tees, like these:
www.SheldonShirts.com has all these stills of the nerd shirts and where to buy them... but they're all like $25-30, which is more than I like to pay for shirts that get washed a million times and stretched out and worn for painting like Jason's clothes do...

So I took a Gildan Ultra Cotton tee and stenciled a couple of robots on it:

There's Jason modeling it.  Some of the spray adhesive is still stuck where the stencil used to be.  Hope it comes out in the wash!

I used stencils from my fave new book, Stencil Me In.


They have a robot stencil, as well as a rocket ship and a single helix.  Cool dude stencils.
