Hard Rock Cafe, in conjunction with Tremendous Graphics
T-Shirt designs I illustrated for Hard Rock Cafe, in conjunction with Tremendous Graphics. I had the privilege of designing the shirts for many iconic cities for each of the Hard Rock shops from all over the world, including Tokyo, Miami, Yankee Stadium, Amsterdam, and more.
The Art Director provided me with a detailed brief of each city, and a list of items and landmarks that Hard Rock Cafe thought would best convey the character of each city. I then drew up three detailed thumbnail sketches for each design, and sent them to the Art Director for approval. Once the best sketch was picked and refined, I set out illustrating the design in a combination of Manga Studio 5 and Adobe Photoshop using a Wacom Cintiq 24HD. It was a fun challenge to squeeze in so many different elements, while trying to keep the design from becoming too busy.
