Got a commision for a T-shirt design for a punk band from Bristol called Officer Down. Who I have been familiar with for a while. Check them out. http://www.reverbnation.com/officerdown or www.myspace.com/officerdownuk . Good straight up punk rock. They wanted something reflecting the name, including a cop, in a two colour on black. Heres what I came up with.
Drawing Number One: Officer Down with badge held out. Made sure it was an English style badge and uniform.
Drawing Number Two: City Scape & Helmet for additional imagery to be added to the main section.
Final Design: Reversed out the imagery, added the band logo and some good, old-fashioned, blood splatter. Fini. Overall I'm pretty happy with that. On the screen it looks a little weird because of the detail being condensed, but when it's blown up to the actual size it would be printed out it looks good. I like the addition of the blood to the 'W' on the logo, helps to bring the whole piece together.
