ilovedoodle + davidfromdallas = davidfromdoodle

The idea started as a simple drawing of a dude surfing some waves on a whale's tail. A few days later, doodle came up with the idea of having the waves emerge from the whale's blowhole. A few tweaks here, a few tweaks there, and with some incredible advice from the thread-legend alvarejo, Whale Rider was born.

We hope you like it!

(and a BIG thanks to Phil for the magic presentation)

Looks great on the shirt! $5

ferfo

actually, as much as it's incredibly well drawn, I think it's a tad too busy.
It could really benefit from losing the "wave out of blowhole" thing

mustachepete

Brilliant finish. The execution is mind-blowing. Congrats on a pending monster score and probable print. $5!

I seriously want to wear this shirt--and when you look at the placement, it doesn't look over-designed at all. How about another colab. davidfromdoodle??
