About the artist
A word from wotto: Sven and I have rubbed shoulders in many a tee contest arena. Unlike a lot of designers, me and Sven pat each other on the back and wish eachother the best of luck. One of the nicest guys out there, I'm proud to introduce A.mar.illo. (A red tee FTW)
Tell us a little about this design.
It is inspired by the looks, style and theatrical expressions of the actors of the silent pictures from the twenties, my favourite decade of the past century (I'm not that old to really know it though). Call it the capture of a sad and haunted look frozen to crystal.
