Ink on the Shirt: The Hypermodern Game

As much as I love this technologically cluster-fucked world...there is something about the quiet brutal elegance of chess that the modern world can't touch. I wanted to create a chess t-shirt that played with these two contrasting worlds, particularly as it applies to gaming.

As you check out the progression below...please keep in mind that all of the inking was done by hand and took hour and hours to complete. Hours, I tell ya!!

Some beautiful stick-figure conceptual art...

Many hours of inking...


Many hours, I tell ya!!!

Boom!! Ink on the shirt...


Now go buy one! Or at least tell a friend!

Thanks, Leena! However, I do need to point out that I am not the artist...unless you are referring to the wonky stick figure sketch ;-) We use different artists for different styles, trying to achieve the best work possible. Thanks again for the kind words.
