This one is called "King" and is over at Shirt Fight. The theme this week is "Black and Blue", and can feature any artwork as long as the shirt choice is black or blue. Although I originally intended this one for a dark chocolate shirt, I modified the colors a little and think it looks good on black.

The artwork is along the lines of the tribal vectors I like to do. I used to draw this way alot and got away from it as I tried to learn to draw in a more classical sense (learning anatomy, perspective, etc). As I got more comfortable using the computer I started experimenting with this type of look again. No matter what direction my scribbles seems to take, I always go back to doing these.

This one is called "Poseidon". I do some designs with tribal vectors off and on. I've got some ideas for some and this is one if them. Trying to incorporate different elements and color layouts within and outside of the vector shapes to hopefully enhance the design and do something different with them, then tone on tone. I haven't submitted this anywhere... I still may tweak it a little before I do.

Mind the most - Woot Honorary Mention!

Cool update with no pic! Just noticed over at shirt.woot my entry for "quotations", while not winning anything was selected as an honorary mention. I guess there is a special runoff derby with a bunch of honorable mentions up against each other. Thanks to woot for the nod!

Mind the most

This week's derby over at is Famous Quotations. I decided to go with one by Mark Twain, "Of all the the things I've lost I miss my mind the most." It's a lighter take and based on different things easily lost. I like the concept I had and was going for a simpler "line art" look, we'll see how it goes. If you like the image and think it would be a cool shirt to wear, vote for Mind the most today.
UPDATE: Derby for voting for this is over and with it a very good improvement vote-wise this time around. Mind the most was good enough for 152 votes (29th place)

KISS mime (KISS Sub)

Here is a new one for the KISS contest over at DBH called KISS Mime. The idea hit about the same time as geisha, and I had to do it. It's the whole white makeup thing and associating it with various cultural and/or historical references. I like the way it turned out.

Shamisen AXE (KISS Sub)

There is a KISS contest going on over at DBH and I've been mulling over a couple of ideas, this being one of them. There was some supplied artwork available for use from a KISS style guide in the contest details page. It featured some symbolic logos of each of the members. I decided to use them if I could get them to work with something. Everyone knows KISS is famous for the white makeup they wear. I was thinking of historical and cultural references of white makeup (geisha, clown, mime, old horror movies) and settled on geisha for this one. Shamisen AXE is up for voting over at DBH
