A proposed t-shirt design for the 2009 Tuscaloosa Academy prom featuring the clown from the parents invitation.
Early on the prom committee wanted to brand the print materials with various clown rubber stamps. This piece was not selected for the senior class prom t-shirts.
I’d approached this illustration in a “sketch” style, promoting with the Cirque du Soleil vibe by incorporating the sun (and overlapping moon, in this case). The clown is wearing a diamond-patterned cape; the same pattern is used in the background of the approved t-shirt.
Had this design been accepted, the subsequent print materials would have incorporated similar imagery.
