I've seen many images in the past that exploit the shape of the African continent to depict a human skull. I was interested in finding something more positive inspired by the theme of 'transformation'. Using traditional African art and pattern work.
Pretty clever design and looks nice on the tee. Nice one dude!
i do believe the laptop is yours... 5
Well done sir!

well done well done
great use of African patterns in the wing.
I could see this winning. $5
Nice! I personally think u shld include the (red) logo you have up there into the actual print design just below the butterfly, to make the significance just a teeny bit clearer.
Nicely done !
Has been done, but this one is more polished :)
really nice work!
Interesting one, enjoy it!
very smart design for the contest. I could easily see this winning.
wow very nice pattern created!
Really subtle, nice work for the theme man.
Very clever and cool, perfect for the contest.
real beaut man
ahmmm --- winner?
I really love your artwork...so much great though and ideas went into it...so I hate to mention this...(if its any consolation, your not the only one to use a monarch or monarch like butterfly in their product red design)....
Monarchs don't live in Africa. They live just about everywhere else... except the African continent. The closest they get are the Canary Islands...which are technically Europe.
There is, however, an African Monarch, which looks sort of similar. It would mean adjusting your art, but I think a native species is really important to the integrity of your concept.
Your patterns are super lovely and I adore this idea, despite the slight whoops. :)
Thanks for you kind words and feedback!
This is an African Monarch. Consider that the 'Africa' wing shape is integral to the concept - I think the style is a good resemblance to the African Monarch. You have to make some allowance for artistic license, right? I wouldn't want to make it a precise match.
Well, I suppose it can come down to subjective interpretation about accuracy of representation...Looks pretty North American Monarch, but it might just be me. And I doubt few people have done extensive research projects on Monarchs like I have, so I suppose not many will mind...
I don't think it will matter so much to most people
Really nice !
I like it a lot! Great message and idea!
