This motive has been on the bubble as a T-shirt for a while, and I’ve had a few requests for posters so here we are.
I don’t know why I didn’t do this from the beginning, but anyway better late than never I guess.
It has been my best selling tee ever so far, and it is one of the vector pictures I am the most proud of.
The concept of this design was an idea I had bumping around in my head for a very long time before I jumped in to it and first put it to paper.
It was tossed around for a while together with thousands of ideas and idea snippets, collected throughout my life.
Ideas I take care of in notepads and on paper scraps of different origin and quality that I stuff in to boxes of different orig….a.s.f.
Then one day (triggered by a vid I saw on the youtube. It was about how animals in African wild parks are exploited for cash) I had the idea with the blood and that was it…I went straight for the computer and scanned my sketches of the zebra/barcode ideas. Then I brought it all together in Adobe Illustrator for execution (My absolute favourite vector app.).
I let the design sit on my computer screen for a couple of days as I did tiny little corrections now and then.
Afterwards I hid it for a few weeks, and then I published it after a few more minor enhancements…..and voila!
