A shirt, a Sharpie, and some spare time

Here's a quick project I that took me less than an hour to do. I simply cut a bat symbol out of paper, traced it onto a grey shirt using chalk, and filled it in with a black Sharpie. Voila! My very own Bat-Shirt!

The bat-symbol itself is inspired by Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns from 1986. I've always like the thickness of the wings with this version of the symbol – similar to its original look. The head of my bat is more traditional with a tall head and neck.

I was a little worried how well the Sharpie work but it turned out pretty good. After a few washes, the marker hasn't really faded. The marker smell still noticeable at times, though nowhere near the headache-inducing strength it once was. For basically the cost of the shirt itself ($5), making my own Batman shirt was a fun, easy, and cheap project. I wonder what other shirts I should draw on?
