Mr T(shirt)

One of these days I promise I will eventually get around to scanning in some personal work, something I feel reflects what I do most of, but until then I'm going to show other things I've done.

A while back, a friend of mine asked me if I would do him a T-shirt design for the band he drums for, Scrapbook Heros, so I obliged and this is what I came up with!

This isn't the full design, as someone else made the text, and the colour of the cacti was significantly more acidic, once I get hold of a copy of the T-shirt I'll model it in all it's glory... This T-shirt turned out to be a lot of fun, especially working in a format totally alien to my usual style, and I feel I learned valuable lessons about things like how to use the pen tool...

I will update things that are sketchbook related next, honestly...
While you are waiting you can check these things out:
The guys at Balloonshop churn some coal.
Midlake make beautiful music in a psychedelic Belle & Sebastian kind of way
Michael Dryden obsesses over balls.
Arthur Hamer captures people in a slightly creepily accurate way.

that's all for now. If I'm not back in a week, don't be cross.

Awwww shit. That is so awesome I might just poo. Also the text reeks of Finn Clark, all I'm saying. Looks great man, thanks for the shout out :)

As you know, I like this. I like it a lot. It looks good large, and those brass knuckles are a nice touch. I think I need to learn the ways of the pen tool now. Also, I don't know what Arthur is talking about.
