A friend I work with, Mike Giacopetti, had ideas for a couple t-shirt designs. Mike is a good designer, and we have the same taste in teevee shows. He talked to me about collaborating on a “Sons of Anarchy” tribute shirt and a “Breaking Bad” themed shirt. I was eager to work with him, given the ideas.

Mike came up with the concepts for both. He also designed the logo for the Chicken Brothers shirt. I did the illustration work using ink, Bristol, and tracing paper. I then scanned everything in and laid it out on the computer. All I had to do then was design a background (reminiscent of busted glass) and drop in the logo Mike designed:

As far as the S.O.A. fan art design, Mike did everything except the crow skeleton illustration. He designed a parody whiskey label reminiscent of the “Old Crow” bourbon label. I did my ink illustration. Then all I had to do was scan it and drop it into place using Photoshop:

I submitted early in the week. Any and all feedback greatly appreciated.

    That one won't be up here, but I am told they have some really good S.O.A. designs in the pipeline to be released.

    I'll be buying the Breaking Bad shirt for sure. The SOA one looks a bit odd to me as it appears the text from "Charming..." down isn't dead centre on the label.

    Thanks. Support is much appreciated. The SOA shirt won't be made by Teefury, so no one will be buying that here. Thanks for the constructive criticism though. I will take a look at the file. I think the crow might be off center and throwing everything else off. Thanks again.

    The Proximidad De Usted was done for a Dia De Los Muertos a couple years back. WIth all the colors mixed, it couldn't be a t-shirt. The heisenberg I am still not sure what'll become of that. Thanks again.

    Too bad the designs you have here didn't come to fruition. The new BB one is a bit of a let down with the LPH, and I haven't seen the samcro one. Based on the above designs, both would have been an instabuy for me.
