Soul Thief

SOUL THIEF!!!!!
This design is for the Shutterstock Challenge celebrating the idea that Photographs can capture a glimpse of the human soul. It is based on the old belief of primitive cultures who wouldn't let their photographs be taken because they thought it would steal their soles. As we all know that is silly but the fact is that photographs do have the ability to capture the soul through the documentation of candid moments. So here i have this lonely soul less creature looking to fill its empty void with the souls of others by taking pictures of the moments when their spirit shows through. The blank photos represent that his desire to completely fill that void will never be achieved while the bird like cameras represent that while this creature feels alone in his pursuit he is in fact just one of many creatures in this world that are on the same quest of fulfillment.
All photos of people are my own photos . Written consent of the people in the photos is available. Cameras were downloaded from istock with the links below.

Very cool, even if the concept is a bit grim.

This print deserves to be bigger on the shirt. The execution of the design is really nice. I'm pretty sure threadless can make this a full front design. Nice job Tyreeimagery...... PS. This would make a great painting.......Just saying..

I tried to keep within the standard screenprinting limits. I also know that simulated process can be tough from my past experience in the industry. Then again I sucked at separating art, i always was more of a creator than tech. Thanks for the words all.

I've been trying to execute a similar idea but I never find the inspiration... Now I'll give up because I don't think there's a better way than your design...

I surprised myself with this design. I stepped out of my usual boxes for this one

I think it may be a little too dark for some people though unfortunately. At least i am happy with it. I am gonna print it on canvas and hang it in my studio

nicely eerie image. And it taps into a concept that's always interested me - the idea of an image being able to capture the spirit of the subject, in more ways than one. Well done.

The concept is a bit too dark, but hopefully the sweet color scheme and composition will even things out. Nice piece!
