    Hi out there ...here are a few of my Illustrations I've done in Photoshop,
    everyone says "ooooo" I'd love a T shirt of those, but I don't know anyone
    in that business!
    Anyone know a company I might talk to...?
    Here's my site if you would like to see more of my stuff!

    great work...very nice.

    2 things:
    1) you don't say where you are. I'm sure there's any number of local printers near you who could print it. It might be expensive, though. Black and white is fairly simple looking, but it can wind up being a 3 or 4 screen print, depending upon whether it requires an underlay (these probably will) and also upon whether you're going to want to print some black and whether you're going to want to introduce another color (like PMS 428 or 429...maybe 430) to help ease the transition from white to black. Which leads me to this...

    2) the question isn't so much who can print it for you, the question is who can do the separations? Before you decide on a printer, you should ask to see a finished sample of the same type i.e. something hi-res, and you should try to talk to the guy who actually produced the films.

    You might be able to skip the separations part by having it printed at a shop with a direct-to-shirt inkjet printer, though those things are a fairly new technology and kind of rare. Also, I'm not sure how well they work with darker garments. I've seen samples of stuff printed w/inkjet but they've almost invariably been on white.

    Sorry so long...I'm assuming you haven't done silk screen separations before, yes?

    Hot Topic is some kind of store where they sell goth stuff. I think. I don't know for sure because I've never seen one.

    That is the funniest thing, you've basically said 'this is what they are, possibly, i don't know as they may not exist' haha!

    Images are cool, little bit scary for me though!
