10/4 – 11/4/12 Rough Sketches
There are alot of young boys or infants that wear t-shirts with the skull on the front. The rough sketch at the top provides a basic outline of the different styles that I have been encountered. The majority of tshirts with skulls that have been designed for young boys feature basic shapes, colours and compositions, which also formulate a simplistic appearance. These particular observations question why children wear the image of the skull, especially young boys? The tshirt designs also question whether the skull has been simplified or modified in order to appeal to different age groups or styles.
