A Study in Details
For the keen eyed scholarly types, one of today’s designs, “Evolution” by Santiago Sanchez, holds some delectable easter eggs.
When asked about his design inspiration, we go more than just an answer but a comprehensive visual guide! But first, let’s start with some words from the artist:
SS: “This design is a collaboration between me and my pal Sam McNally. He is a biologist and came up with the idea of Darwin studying evolution on Pokemons. I thought it was genius and did a lot of research to honor that awesome idea. Everything there has a meaning, even the whole study is a based on the actual Darwin’s study. There are tons of references form Pokemon and Darwin’s life and work… like books names, or Kanto map on the wall and the small picture of HMS Beagle on top of it (Darwin’s ship) Just as an example of that I’m attaching a picture that reveals every single Pokemon you can find in the scene We were both really happy with the result… I love designs that has a fist view impact, but also several layers of information you can find if you look closer.”
Have you got what it takes to be the very best?

That’s No Moon
And for those looking to train on an epic scale, check out “Poked to Death” by Zerobriant. Here’s what the artist had to say about this fully operational shirt design:
ZB: “Technically speaking: This design was originally created using 3D in photoshop. It was rejected before because it looks so photographic so I made a different muted version. It was clearly a huge success for the fans of both worlds. It was easy to identify, easy to love and awesome to show off. It made it’s way to the Pokemon Magazine. In other words, this design idea come out when I introduced Star Wars to my little kiddo..He was playing with his pokeball the whole time when we were watching the trilogy. Then a lighting strikes! I just hope all the pokemon species were able to fly away before that ball blew up. I always thought those cute little creatures somehow are living in a galaxy far far away!”
He has an artist promo running today as well on his Facebook page too. The odds are better than one in a million!
