Truckee River Day t shirt illustration
I recently completed a t shirt illustration for Truckee River Watershed Council'
s annual Truckee River Day. The day is about watershed restoration and education. One of the highlighted fish species of the area is the Lahontan Trout. In india ink, I outlined a design of a Lahontan Cutthroat I has painted on canvas. I added the signature spots and scanned it. Once imported, I converted the design to outlines. I then took a photo of my original acrylic painting and converted the design to gradient halftones. I then combined the outline and outlined halftones to create a Warhol-esque fish design, giving this year's design more of an artsy feel. The shirts are free for volunteers on this great day.
