The Deacon

To celebrate their friend’s legacy, my clients reached out to design a t-shirt for a honorary event. I illustrated the Deacon’s portrait and designed it in a style to match that of The Grateful Dead, one of his favorite bands. To further the psychedelic theme, I lettered part of the event’s slogan, “A Friend of the Deacon” and paired it with a type treatment, “Is a Friend of Mine.” It was an honor to help commemorate a loved one and I enjoyed how this project evolved.
