My final piece of work for HBO was a series of t-shirt designs celebrating ‘Westeros’ Most Deadly’. The brief was simple – one colour art of a Human, White Walker, Dragon and Dire Wolf. The trick was getting close enough to the subjects without having a hard, cropped edge, or holding shape (always a dead giveaway that the art hasn’t been created for the t-shirt), so I used negative space – the horse, shield etc. to blend the images back into the tees. They were produced colour on colour (the images at the bottom are a reasonable approximation). Working strictly in black and white was a good exercise, usually I go to town with colour. Then come back from town with tons more.
The Beautiful Death logo is something I made for fun. What do you mean that doesn’t sound like much fun?
