Caricature T-shirt part 2

Filed under: Uncategorized — scottnelson @ 6:14 pm

Basketball t-shirt 1990. FINALA few posts back I wrote about some caricature work I had done for a T shirt  company that was printing sports figure shirts for the NHL.   Although the demand for this style of  shirts has faded a bit over the years (sorry, bad pun),  I’d LOVE to do more sports shirts like this.     Found some final art I had done for this company in 1990 as they prepped to print even more shirts for the likes of the NBA.  Sadly it never was printed and I was never paid when the company went under.  Regardless, I like  this  green and black pencil image  done on Cokeel board (sorry, no idea how to spell Cokeel__ Sounds like Koo- keal).  This image  printed as one color would be  the base for the silk screen. I believe 7 other colors would have been added.  The Cokeel allows facial tones, muscle tones and shadows  to come through better then simple  line art.    I can’t find cokeel board anymore and miss working with it.  If anyone has seen it recenly (or spell it) , please let me know.  🙂
