Illustration for Threadless tees
This piece was made for Threadless upon invitation, for the Adam White MADE store.
Adam White is a great artist who is facing a rough battle with multiple sclerosis, and this store was a joint effort of Threadless and a selection of their printed artists to make a collection of tees that will be sold to help Adam handle his medical bills.
The store is still live and contains some amazing work, all labors of love, so go check it out and buy something maybe :) 100% of all profits goes to Adam.
I made this piece in collaboration with my talented friend Kimby Dawson. She came up with this electric blue colorway which in my view really makes the design sing.
I put a lot of love into the textures and details, to add richness to the limited color palette.
The theme of the piece links to the eternal struggle between beauty and decay - though the motifs are dark, the message is hopeful. Death is inevitable, but beauty lives on, always in new forms.
This is the whole collection - some real gems in there, by amazingly talented artists.
Again, check it out here if any of them look exciting. You'll get a great piece of clothing and you'll be helping a wonderful and talented man overcome some serious hardship.
