Coming soon to Threadless! I was drawing randomly in my sketchbook one day and I had the idea for a guy coming straight out of Brother's Grimm who shambled through the winter forest, devouring everything with his beard. The mustache I drew originally resembled an insect's mandibles, so I ran with it. These are the two comp sketches I did for the shirt design, which I'll post later. I went with the bottom one because I prefer bodies contorting to the straight on pose of the first. However, the first sketch was a lot better executed (only failing at composition) so I took the elements I liked from that one for my final.
