This Guns and Arrows print was inspired by an old shirt that a kid wore into the shop one day. I was on the porch having lunch when he walked up and I got really excited by the simplicity of the design. It was sort of like polk-a-dots with arrows instead of dots. I went inside right after lunch and started drawing. I’d already designed the Cowboys and Indians pattern so I added in the guns to play with that theme. It came together really quickly.
When I started making screens and printing samples I got the idea to do it in two scales. The smaller one feels like polk-a-dots and the larger is more graphic. I love the way that this illustration dances around some potentially serious subject matter but manages to stay fun. I feel like the two color ways offer different variations on that playfulness.
