FEEDBACK: The Truth About Dan Rollman

Published on .

Goodby Silverstein's Dan Rollman writes to correct our mistaken assumption in last week's Wearable Art item that he uses Photoshop. "I don't Photoshop my shirts onto the celebrity images," Rollman explains. "Everything is done by hand, and every piece of art is one-of-a-kind — no reproductions. My process: 1) Rip out image from magazine. 2) Use an X-Acto knife and cut the existing shirt out of the image. 3) Tape a piece of white paper over the hole — I do this from the back of the page. Now it looks like the person is wearing a plain white T-shirt. 4) Design the T-shirt with a fine-tip black marker." Thanks, Dan. But you realize, of course, you've given away all your art secrets.
