Concept / Illustration / Design / Art Direction / Photography
Design a range of four t-shirts for the Autumn/Winter collection of Hero & Cape, a hand-illustrated, screen-printed clothing company. The client wanted a more masculine feel than their current range and the only limitation was that the designs had to be hand-drawn and to use the name of the company as a starting point. I researched not just modern comic mythology but also classic mythology.
I based this design around the most powerful cape in Greek mythology: The Golden Fleece from Jason and the Argonauts.
After deciding how the fleece was going to sit, I then set about the job of painstakingly penning each clump of wool. I decided to use just one colour against white to make the most of the complicated pen work and chose metallic gold to get the best effect.
