Bokito t-shirt design 25May07

In light of recent events at the Zoo here in Rotterdam where a silverback gorilla named Bokito escaped his habitat, I thought it would be fun to make a t-shirt.

I’ve been wanting to make a grunge like t-shirt design for a while now. After joking about the gorilla escape a lot at work I got to work and you can see the result bellow. Click for a larger image.

Great work, Dion! :) You worked in Illustrator?

Hi Respiro, Thank you for the comment/compliment. I used a combination of Photoshop and Illustrator, where in Photoshop I tweaked the gorilla photo to an extent where I could trace it in Illustrator and finished the design there. The final design is Illustrator only.

Where can I buy one? Shirt, not gorilla. But owning a gorilla would be really cool.....
