Guess What!

I'm back in New York, and I'm thinking about trying to set up a mini screen printing studio in my bedroom. I still need to work out the details, and how I can have enough room in a small space, but it looks like the LoLA shirts might be available for sale soon! Because of Copyright issues, I'm pretty sure I can't sell the Space Ghost/Max/Ariel design, but I could start with the image of the three kids and the dog, and I have plenty more ideas for the spring. What do you think, followers? Love, LoLA

Pretty much, following my blog or making it your Facebook status seems to be the new thing to do. Thank you to all of my lovely followers, and status updaters. Let's try for even more! Love, LoLA

When I ask people about my blog, I've recently been getting either "I want one!" or "You're stupid, all you talk about is how you love your family, so you make t-shirts". I like both, for the record, but I hope my posts don't sound sappy and ridiculous. I just want to share where I'm coming from, because I'm all about storytelling and things that have back stories. I think it would be pretty cool to have a collection inspired by you, so I'm just letting my brothers have the spotlight they deserve! And, of course, they get a picture, third from the bottom. Keep up the following! Love, LoLA

So I've been getting a lot of questions about whether or not I hand make all of the LoLA shirts, and the answer is Yes. I draw all of the designs, burn them into screens, dye my own blanks (all of the t-shirts started off white, until they met my kitchen...), mix my own custom inks, and print the shirts myself. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. And keep the followers coming! Love, LoLA

Thank you to Kate Richardson and Kristen Lee, for photographing my line and for modeling it. This photo shoot was done at my house in LA. This house is where I have my first memories, so it only seemed right to begin there. The shoot was inspired by childhood and new beginnings, and to us that meant tea parties, cousins, and laughing piles. I would love to know what you think of it. Love, LoLA

The Beginning

Hi, I'm Isby and this is LoLA, the beginnings of a collection of screen-printed t-shirts and other items that I have designed and handmade. LoLA is all about what inspires me, starting with the most important thing of all: my family. My first collection is inspired by my brothers, and how they helped me and still are helping me become the person I am today. Love, LoLA
