This is a collaboration between myself and fellow artist Jonah Block (a.k.a. biotwist on Threadless). It was a great experience to work with someone else's idea: it gave me a bit of a break from my mind...which can be a bit of a ball and chain sometimes. We'll see how it does. I initially started out with 8 colors (more of less), but, with Johan's help, knocked it down to 3-5, depending on what you define as an 'individual' color.
I'm not sure which I prefer better: I liked using more colors, but the simpler version seems to work better on a shirt. I'll let you be the judge.
Brrr...I'm ready for summer.
