The challenge was
Create a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde inspired design.
Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a classic good versus evil story with a creepy twist. The good guy and the bad guy are really the same guy.
The novella was an instant success when it was published in 1886. It sold thousands of copies and was quickly adapted for stage and film. Stevenson’s story also influenced the creation of new characters like Hulk and Two-Face, both who have dual personalties.
Use the timeless tale as inspiration for your next t-shirt design. Call upon your inner Dr. Jekyll to make your design good. And look to your Mr. Hyde side to make it equally evil. 25% of the sale from the winning shirt will benefit the Robert Louis Stevenson Silverado Museum.
