Below is a collection of shirt designs I've created for a variety of clients, including agencies and small activist groups.
Shirt designs vary depending on what the concept is. Usually for heavy illustrative concepts like above, I sketch out a rough sketch first, do a final inking by hand, and then import into Illustrator where I refine everything using a combination of the Blob Brush tool and the Pen tool.
Every shirt created is inspired from something, whether it's incorporating "guiding clients to their best end product" with a compass and steering wheel, or incorporating "three" objects for "Three" Seas (right).
Some inspirations (as seen below-right) pull from cultural symbols. For example, the "Warped Tour" shirt pays homage to it being the last Warped Tour with a symbol of death (the death's-head hawkmoth). The design also features lines that gradually protrude from the center, representing sound waves that represent the music from Warped Tour.
