Tallahassee Lassie

Illustration & T-Shirt Design

Client: Local Vyntage

A Tallahassee Lassie is sweet as tea but don’t let that fool you — this lassie is sassy! Inspired by mid-century modern illustrations, this t-shirt plays up the sweetness of the southern belle. I began with researching 1950s illustrations, cartoons, and advertisements to inform the sketch and the typography.

The belle was sketched in full detail before committing to vectoring and the typography was mapped out in the sketching stage before researching fonts accurate to the time period.
