In February I was contacted by Melbourne metallers FRANKENBOK to do a shirt design for them.
They supplied me some lyrics to a new song from their upcoming album and I was tasked to interpret the lyrics and translate that to a shirt design. above is the result; demon cops and suicide bombers!
The final design includes a gnarly FRANKENBOK logo that I knocked up to compliment the design and that will be included on the final shirt when it goes to the printers.
As far as the actual design elements go I wanted to make sure the balance between black and white was good and strong so I used negative space for the trees in the background which contrasts well against the bulk of the figures in the foreground.
There’s also some numerical significance in the number of eyes each of the cops has…. and slimy tentacle tongues look plain RAD. Once the gory details were all added I did some digital clean up in PShop and added some extra splatter to make the design really pop.
Shirts will be available soon from www.frankenbok.com
