Amazing. Simple, yet expressive.

Wes, he gives permission in his FAQ to do all sorts of things with his art. Get a few markers and make your own. Low-tech solution, but it works and chics dig it. Hmm... we have a bunch of iron-transfers and some dye around here...
Dye the top green
Dye the bottom beige
Cobble the rest together in PS
Print and iron

Personally, I'm thinking about painting a really big one in one of our rooms. Or maybe I'll paint a series of similiar along the bottom of our girlies bedroom. Man, that sounds like fun. I haven't done any painting since the mural in our old bedroom.

Cool beans, CFB.

Toddler attack!
Gotta go.
Damn.

edit:
The kid is sedated for the moment and I just got to talk about the mural in our old bedroom.
Started by painting the ceiling and most of the walls with midnight blue. On the walls, I didn't take the blue all the way down.
Then I took black and painted a silhouette all the way around. You know, a city over here, a bridge over there, trees and cows and a windmill and things.
Then an astro-lab and some glow-in-the-dark star stickers.
Atro-lab in the center of the room and projected the constellations.
Stuck the star stickers over the projected stars.
Orion was right over the door.
Then added a nice and quiet ceiling fan.
Charge the stickers before going to bed, turn the fan on low, and it was just like sleeping outside. Once our eyes adjusted, the silhouette was barely visible and added the final touch.
I was planning on adding some neon lights with a dimmer to the city part, but I never got around to it.
Anyways, it was major cool.

Hey, how well do those inkjet transfers work, anyway?

The other day, I was looking at those iron-on letters you get at the craft store. Turns out you can wash them, but not dry them, lest they peel off.

Also, does the unprinted portion transfer as white? (I'm guessing it doesn't.) And what brand would anyone recommend?

Sometimes I wish I just had my own screen-printing equipment.

Our iron-on transfers have worked very well for us. Although, the cheaper ones don't quite last as long. We tried some of the expensive ones and some have lasted several years barring extreme abuse.
You're right: unprinted/white doesn't transfer. Learned this one the hard way when I printed out a bunch of Lunch Money transfers and none of them worked on a black t-shirt. Bummer.

They have black-backed iron on paper, too. ;-)
If I remember correctly, the paper I had best luck with was made by HP. Last batch was by Avery, and it lasted pretty well, too.
Don`t forget to boost your saturation if you`re printing on grey.
Trust me.
