Unicorn Skull (A T-shirt)

A while back my friend Erik Guiterrez told me about this website Threadless ( which is a web site that sells t-shirts designed by any one with an internet connection and the free time to do so. The shirt designs are selected by the members of the site by voting on the pieces, and as long as more then 50% likes them threadless will print the shirt. The winning designer gets 1500 US dollars and 500 Threadless dollars, plus an additional 500 dollars any time that their design is reprinted. This sounded like a fun away to get my art out there and potentially make some money.

Coming off of my Peter Thomas T-shirt creating high, I decided to create some shirt design (this being the only one that I have finished or developed in the last 3 or 4 months). So I did some sketches and based off of a suggestion made by Laura to do a unicorn skull.

Here is the unicorn skull sketch.

Here is the finalized version that I did in illustrator.
I didn't do the little star sparks because I thought it was too silly and whimsical plus i though it didn't make sense with the rest of the piece.

Here is what i submitted for review on Threadless
See next Blog for how i did
