“Pinup and Whale” is a completed commission for The MadLila. I always love the ideas that this client comes to me with. The original idea was for a pinup girl to be riding a whale, in the same position that you would ride a horse. I sent some preliminary sketches and then we worked together to reach the final idea of the pinup on water splashing out of the blowhole.
Here’s a mockup I created to show the design printed onto a black shirt. The design printed onto dark clothing has a few variations – I think I prefer this version, but I wanted to give the client more options for longevity of this design.
