Announcement   Legendary Rock Stars such as Brian Jones, Amy Winehouse, Leon Russell, and Marc Bolan are now on custom made t-shirts printed using the direct to garment method at Granny's T Party. You can find us on Etsy.
I also would like to announce the start of what I think will be an exciting new phase of Granny's T Party. I am steering my designs into more original artwork. As I am a portraitist, I will be gradually replacing the photo art with drawn and painted images of your favorite rockers. This won't happen overnight, it's generally more labor intensive to draw a portrait than tweak a photo, so please bear with me while gradually new images are added. I hope you will embrace this new incarnation of Granny's and find something exciting among the offerings!
Currently available as original drawings are: Syd Barrett, David Bowie, Brian Jones, Amy Winehouse, Keith Richards, Debbie Harry, Leon Russell, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, and Marc Bolan

About

The Granny's T Party Evolution

I started as a bookseller who was also an artist/photographer, in Woodstock, NY in 1971. Prior to that, I had grown up in 1960's England, a card carrying member of the British hippie generation, not to be confused with American hippies, as I discovered. I knew people. Brian Jones, Jagger, Richards, Marc Bolan, Syd Barrett, Nick Mason and many others. These were my friends, neighbors, people I saw regularly at clubs like UFO and Middle Earth, and sometimes ran into in the local corner grocers.
My interest in designing t-shirts came about via owning a bookstore in Woodstock and having a morbidly shy husband who had a hard time speaking to strangers. This is not good when there are customers needing help and he was hiding behind a book on psychology!
To break the ice for him, I designed a shirt which was a caricature of his face, with the logo "Can I Help You?" in a semicircle beneath. This neatly did the trick. I ran into Todd Rundgren who asked me to make him one of the shirts. Before too long, I had a bestseller!
Then I was asked to create more shirts for people, so I began a side industry of hand drawn and painted tees and sold them in my bookstore alongside the books and various sundries.
With the advent of too many kids and a second husband with a drinking problem, the shirt designing took a far back seat until 1991 and a Rocky Horror Picture Show convention. It occurred to me that there was a market for Rocky memorabilia, so, armed with tacit permission, I gathered a computer artist friend and the relevant state licenses and began turning out shirts that I sold at conventions. Over time, I learned the graphics programs and did my own designs. However, as often happens, the RHPS sales slowed and I found my business name, which was RHPS related, no longer spoke to where I wanted to go.
Where I was leaning was towards my 60s roots with my musician friends. I realized I wanted to design images of 60s rockers, specifically the ones who have left us. That required a new business name, so I filed with the state and became Granny's T Party. Under this name, I can go anyplace! Of course, not all my shirts honor dead rockers, because thats just where I am. But they are still "Legendary" rock 'n rollers, dead or alive!!
I hope you will join us and get yourself a Granny's T Party Legendary Series T-shirt!!

I make top quality t-shirts on 100% cotton Gildan shirts. The process I use is called Direct To Garment, which means the shirt is fed into a specialized printer and the image printed directly onto it. It means there are no complicated washing instructions and if cared for you can anticipate years of wear! I am here to answer all your questions. I cannot, at this time, do custom shirt design work however. This includes making any changes, such as removal of names from the image. I am dedicated to customer service and I truly believe you will love my shirts.
