Austin Carlile, lead singer of the band Of Mice & Men, and the clothing brand Neff did a collaboration for a shirt design. Neff wanted the shirt to include Austin's quote "You have many options in life, never make giving up one of them." Not a lot of people know this about Austin, but he has had heart problems his whole life, and it's those same heart problems that took his mom from him when he was a teenager. So when I saw the quote to be used, I figured that I would use a battered heart as the main subject for the design. Austin has continuously dealt with his heart issues throughout his life, but has never let it slow him down. The heart illustration felt the best for the concept and the brand Neff.
Below this you will find the original artwork I created for the shirt. I wanted to redesign this in a more modern and simplistic style.
