Military Journey - Tee shirt graphic

 

I wanted to included this image in a series of graphics that i’ve been working on. The series is  inspired by U.S government and U.S military. I wanted to create a graphic image that captures the journey of a solider.

 

I decided not to include any typography because i wanted the image to tell the story. I also decided to keep the image monochromatic. I’ve found that monochromatic images work best for the screen printing process. Shirt is available on redbubble.com >>
 

The image above shows the story that i intended to illustrated. The story starts at the top with the arrival at the battle field and ends at the bottom with the soldier’s death. The image below shows the symmetrical composition of the graphic. The shapes help illustrate the symmetry in the composition.
