This contest could have been called 'Adam White loves IRON and WINE loves Threadless'. I have been a fan for years, and it really means a lot to me.

Midway while working on this design I thought the name 'Zamfir the Reaper' would be funny, as in "Come on baby, Zamfir the reaper" ( sing it out loud ), but decided to go simply with 'ZTR'. It then came to my attention that ZTR is short for the technical term "zero turn radius', which in itself is deep if you think hard enough.

Check out my blog post on here for detail close-ups and the original pencil sketch.

Thank You for checking it out,
Adam

the fill inside the lines should be the same color as the tee I think, mainly so the skull & flute pop more and so there isn't a huge patch of ink on the tee. still a 5+$, excellent work.

this looks pretty awesome, but you could maybe rotate it a few degrees clockwise and nudge it to the left.

I had messed with placement up higher on the shoulder, but decided in the end to present it this way lower on the shirt. Set on top of a real shirt it may just fit, that would be really cool.

love the title... awesome design!

Also, on the mock-up shirt trying to place it higher I had to angle the head so much it started to over flow on the sleeve, so I left it up right and lower.

'Boy With A Coin' brought to my mind the scene in Clash of the Titans, when Perseus has to pay the gold coin to Charon, the boatman of the river Styx, for the ride to Medusa's island. I loved the idea of the grim reaper with a flowing robe. Though abstract, it's just a different lyrical interpretation.

I really love this and I'm giving it $5... but just so you know - the gentrification has diluted it's rustic charm and the magic of the original sepia sketch is somewhat lost.

Just sayin' :-)

adamwhite

It would be cool to print the pencil.
I'm not sure how it would be done outside of using sublimation inks though.

it's evil, wahahaha!

I also liked the sepia version better. Even if you couldn't get the pencil look, taking this version and changing it to that color w/ the natural shirt color would've been awesome. I'd still buy this one, though. Color change is just icing on the cake.

adamwhite
adamwhite profile pic Artist

I actually do have a few other colorways I will post including a vector version of the sepia, and even a neon green one.

Way cool.

nikolina100

yeah, really stupid score!

Aidosaur

W-what--!! What kind of score is that!

This better be printed anyway!!

Bramish
Bramish profile pic Alumni

I'm not shocked by the score.

It's not a cute illustration, it's not relatively small, nor centrally placed, and it's on an unpopular colour.

Got a 5 from me and I still see it being printed.

adamwhite
adamwhite profile pic Artist

I really wasn't sure how it would score, but it did better then my taco design, ha!

You will forever be cursed by Zamfir the reaper,
when you hear the call of the panflute say your prayers.

Good idea

So beautiful! I'm sad I missed voting on this one. On the off chance it ever makes it to print (I'll keep my fingers crossed), I'd buy it in a heartbeat. :)
