Twin Shadow is the stage name of American musician George Lewis Jr. Lewis was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Florida. In 2000, Lewis moved to Boston where he started the band Mad Man Films, releasing two records independently. Around 2006, Lewis relocated to Brooklyn, NY and adopted the Twin Shadow moniker. In 2010 he released his debut album Forget, produced by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear. The album has been described as "steeped in 1980s new wave", "building from streaks of haunting synth textures", having "sophisticated melodies", "R&B intimacy", and "poetic lyrics", and "hazily new wave-tinged pop". Twin Shadow was the Rolling Stone 'Band of the Week' on October 7, 2010.

Hello, everyone! I want to first start out by saying thank you to all of my new followers!!! I can't believe that I already have 245+ followers on GFC and Bloglovin' after only starting this summer! Thank you for all of the support! I also want to apologize for not responding to all of the comments. I pre-posted the post for last week on my blog because I knew that I would be busy (first week of school), and I am so glad that I did because I didn't have internet all week! But I am back on and look forward to reading all of my comments and visiting your blogs!
Anyways, I was so inspired by Lillie's Galaxy Tee that I decided to try it out myself using her instructions; however I cropped mine just like I did my Sunflower tee. I also had a little bit too much fun on Picnik.com and decided to share. I'm such a goofball!

Hello Everyone! My creative juices have been flowing so I've decided to share a t-shirt that I made over the we can. I call it "He Loves Me" because I was inspired by a vintage teenager sitting on the edge of her window sill repeating to herself "he loves me, he loves me not" while plucking flower petals. Plus, sunflowers are my favorite flowers =)
Cut the collar off of a white t-shirt. Start a 1/2 inch to 1 inch away from the top of the collar, then go around the collar to the other side for an "off the shoulder" look. Also, if desired, cut off a few inches from the bottom of the shirt using a straight edge, to give it a cropped look.
Draw your flower in pencil. I use a big can or jar for the middle of the flower and then free hand the rest.
Using acrylic paint, or another fabric paint of your choice (I use acrylic because it dries fast and gives a matte look) and a black sponge brush, outline the petals that you drew in pencil. This will help you stay within the lines and keep it looking neat. After this, fill the insides.
Use a fine tip paint bottle to write the words that you want on your petal, and voila!!! Enjoy your t-shirt ;)
