Waaay back in May, my team and I designed a new T-Shirt for our most recent Info-Tech co-op class. I usually help brainstorm these, but this time I had a solid concept in my head that I really wanted to do myself – and how often do I get to use my super-power as part of my job?

It took a good solid 8 hours to come up with this, composite it, and put it all together, but in the end I’m really happy with the outcome.  I had some great assists from my team too, with help from Randall, Sean and Aaron with little finishing touches.

Here’s the process.

We started out with a brainstorming session, my kids are pretty obsessed with Adventure Time right now, and I thought that an Adventure Time inspired T-Shirt would be fun, and relatively easy to pull off.

Up next was to figure out a good composition, I threw together a few thumbnails and settled on one I liked.

Since I wanted everyone to have decent likenesses, I created a little composite with the actual faces of the people I’d be “Adventuring”.

Since I knew I was going to assemble it all in Photoshop, and I wanted to work fairly quickly, I did all of the drawing with pen and ink, scanned the composites in, and composed them into one image.

Up first, the composites.

While I was working on this, Sean put together an awesome Adventure Time inspired logo.

After that, I put everything together, and I ended up moving people around, added an Ice King for some tension, and gave it more of a comic book cover feel.  When all that was done I passed it over to Randall, who refined it more, and sent it off to Aaron to get it to the printer.

A pretty fun little project, and an awesome T-Shirt.
