Congrats to Jeremy for winning last month's contest. He owns the best carpet cleaning company in Spokane and chose for his prize a tee shirt to use as a prize for his exceptional employees, "something they can wear as a badge of honor."

Here's a work in progress of a shirt I'm working on. I love pulling a 5th color into the design by using the color of the shirt. Anywho, I was going for a growth or rising effect. The headstock of the guitar breaking out of the box gives it some motion rising up from behind the mountains... or out of the mountains. On another note, this is my first use of Illustrator's "blob brush tool" with which I did most of the digital work with. The analog was good ol' pencil and paper.
