SHOVELS & ROPE APPAREL CONCEPTS PART 2:
A few more rough ideas based on your suggestions:
Shovels & Rope Apparel concepts
Here are a few rough ideas for apparel graphics:
A southwestern inspired thunderbird graphic - bold lines and bright colors.
I've been really into the sort of cheesy tour shirts that people were doing in the 90s (example here). I thought it could be cool to do a goofy throwback to that look, we could even make the print look a bit weathered and cracked to really nail the goodwill aesthetic.
An Invisible Man, fading away...
Vintage racing inspired, shovels & rope meets 70s nascar aesthetic. This one could be really cool as a pocket print too.
Drawing inspiration from blue collar shop t shirts, an old school auto shop look complete with catch phrases, an address, phone number, services offered etc... This could be a cool back print paired with a pocket print on the front.
A severed snake head framed by some classy laurel and other graphic elements. Very tough!
