Gorilla My Dreams

This is a work in progress for the Threadless One-Color Challenge. Still not sure what that one color will be so I’m sticking to Black for the moment. I was originally going for a style similar to the Hatter and the Rabbit that I did a couple of weeks ago, but this one is evolving somewhat. I feel like it’s too aggressive for the the “trippy” vibe that the other two have. This one new to be more of a tongue in cheek approach, a juxtaposition of elements. If Spanky was a gorilla…

Add the hands.

And accessories. Playing with two versions at this point. One a bit more compact and without the cap brim.

Then I decided to loose the hands as they were a bit of a distraction especially on a T-Shirt. Also did some rethinking on the mixed styles and went for a more “evolved” look (haha).





While fiddling with the head, i decided to throw one of the hands onto a shirt to see how that looked.



Actually seems to stand on it’s own. Plus sold one the first day too!

So now just down to deciding the color combinations.
