Behind the Artwork: Fool's Mate

Here is a little "behind-the-scenes" on another of our chess shirts...Fool's Mate.

My original idea for this design had several elements and characters. Our artist wisely trimmed the idea to focus on just the jester...


Other than making the chess pieces a bit larger, the final design is pretty true to the starting sketch...


We had some trouble on the coloring of this design. But after experimenting with a bunch of different combinations, we think we stumbled upon a winner...




There are still a few days left in the month of May to get 15% off this shirt as well as all of our other chess t-shirts...use the coupon code CARNIVAL.

Thanks!!

Thanks for allowing us a lookk behind the scenes. Great original sketches. They remind me to a certain extent of some beautiful early Warner Bros. art work.
