If you are a beginner or an intermediate artist and want to know how to do art for t-shirts and have the tools and knowledge that you will help guide you, then The Art of T-Shirt Color Separation is the best and least expensive way to start.

Photoshop is a fantastic program for designing art for T-Shirts.  It is also a great tool to build Color Separations in Channels to make that design a great image on a T-Shirt.  This book teaches how to accomplish that goal in simple and easy step-by-step exercises,  using different methods to make these separations come back together on the press to duplicate the design on the computer.

Discover How To:

 Separate colors for printing on black shirts
 Cross between RGB and CMYK channels
 Simulated and 4 color process
 Splitting channels to place separately into a vector program
 Outputting channels as an EPS composite from a vector program
 Create halftones without a rip software program
 Understanding the characteristics of individual channels
 The tools, palettes, hot keys and much more

No DVD! FULL Photoshop files are downloaded from the cloud at the click of a mouse as you need them for each exercise.

  9. Hey Guys, Thanks for your interest in this book! I am working to complete it with every spare minute that I can squeeze in to my long days.

    A friend who is well known in the industry has looked over the book and feels this book is a great study for the beginner to intermediate artist interested in learning color separations. With a few suggestions he has made, I am adding a few more exercises to give the book an even broader range of solving problems. Please be patient, I should have it completed, printed and ready to ship in a couple of weeks.

  12. Hey Different, I stumbled upon your blog, and I'm glad I did. I've been looking around at a few of your posts with separations, and I'm excited to see you are publishing this book. As an intermediate artist, I feel that I could know more in order to better my separation technique as I am having difficulty with simulated process separations. Looking forward to seeing this come out, and will be in line to buy one! :) Thanks, - Katie

  18. Thank you, Rosh. I am rewarded when I get this kind of feedback from you guys! There is so much competition out there that it is like a secret covenant to withhold knowledge of this kind of art. I always ran into this during my early years. I told myself I would never be that way, so here I am sharing what I know and I am appreciative to hear back from other artists like yourself.
