I’m absolutely drawn to the hand-drawn look of these shirts from Slow Loris. Created by two artists, Jessica and Arlo, who live on a tiny chunk of land off the Puget Sound by the name of Guemes Island, you can just feel the love that went into these designs. Arlo and Jessica illustrate directly onto Rubylith film with an ink pen and X-Acto knife, and then burn screens from their designs, silk-screening each shirt by hand. Pictured above is Home Recording Studio and below is Engine, both of which cause the MAKE side of my brain to say “yummy!”

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
