Week 5 Activity -Cuisine and Beyond – Shirts, Food
For the activity this week, I tried two things, shirts and food.
First since I have been interested in designing prints and t shirts for a while now,
so I thought that I would try different ways of designing shirts.
This semester I am taking a screen printing/printmaking class where I am learning
different ways to design prints. This is very similar to printing shirts.
So this is relevant to the process that I am interested in.
Next, there are pages online that let you submit your designs and upload them to all kinds
of cool products like shirts, stickers, bags, purses, pillows, mugs, leggings, skirts, scarfs .
Lastly, I thought about painting on shirts directly with acrylic paint to see how they would
come out. It was a cool process of trial and error, as you have to plan ahead of time, what
you are going to draw and paint because there are issues of how much space is available.
Also you have to put cardboard inside the shirt, so that the paint does not transfer to the
back of the shirt as well. I designed shirts of things that I like and that hope others will
These shirts are available at my instagrams enrique.plascencia

For the second activity, my dad likes to cook many things that are different so I thought
that I would help him with some of the dishes that he makes that are uncommon to most
people. These dishes are very delicious, fast, easy to make and are on the healthy side.
Since it is lent season and there is no meat eaten on friday, my dad was making some
omelets for breakfast, but he makes them different than others. he often adds extra
ingredients like cheese, onions, mushrooms, bell peppers and this time he added some
For dinner, he made some fish fillet, this is kind of different because many people cook
fish in different ways. My adds different spices and flour batter, than most people.
On sunday we tried out Hot Dogs wrapped in bacon, which he sometimes also includes
Over all it was a cool experience. Here are some pictures.
