Mike T – More Shirt Illustration. Less is More.

As our previous posts (Web Wednesday–Mike Thompson, How to Illustrate for Shirts) indicate, Mike T is the master of t-shirt illustration.

T-shirt Illustration – This illustrates How to Illustrate for T-shirts

Mike T is not just a great artist, he has done some of the most exemplary illustrations for t-shirts that I have ever seen. This print of Biggie is also one of our best screenprints, but it all started with great artwork. The piece is so good that a marketing company put this in Digital…

Back in the mid to late 90’s, high density and dimensional printing was all the rage. We now had another print dimension to work with and I took to it like a duck to water.
