This is created in Illustrator using the pen tool and a wacom tablet. The fonts are based on a real font, but they are all hand drawn. Be sure to check out the larger version!



Comments and criticisms welcome!

sledding!

i can't imagine doing this kind of sketchy style in illustrator. a great departure from your usual style, chris! (though i love both)

Another nice one!! I really like how you rendered the animals. I also think it's great that you allow your style to evolve... it keeps things fresh and exciting!

Also, I can't believe you went sledding. It's so hot here, I'm wearing shorts.

to make illustrator vector art look like a pen and ink drawing takes more talent and skill than i've ever seen. brilliant work chris!

Thanks LongLive! I wouldn't mind this one on any of the colors you suggested. The only reason I chose this color is because I never used sagestone before, and I did think it looked pretty good on it.

this one is amazing, and knowing you did it directly with the pen on illustrator blew me away...respect! 5$ (as always with you)

kevboto

wow, that owl is badass.
i would wear a shirt with just him on it!
... founding feathers? sorry... that's lame.
great design... even though i'm canadian.

whatarebirds

It scored pretty damn good - don't understand why it wasn't printed.

Vindemiatrix

Yes, an awesome design. It still has a chance, the 90-day rule isn't everything...

this HAS to get printed. PLEEEEZE threadless. they pass up so many really good designs that scored high to print... mediocrity :(

Pixtoons

Quite nice, especially for Illustrator... not an easy task.
