This is one of my more “cheesier” pieces that I did. My sister is trying to raise money for charity. Unfortunately, she has been struggling to reach her goals and was trying to come up with some ideas. One suggestion was selling flowers. She didn’t think that the timing would work out for Easter and Mother’s Day.
At dinner, I suggested that she rush and take advantage of the fact that it is Saint Patrick’s Day in two weeks (from when I am writing this: March 3rd, 2016). I thought about my days during college and what I would buy. College students and alcohol go hand-in-hand. Throw in greek life who is always willing to do something for charity and benefit themselves. I decided to take an old idea we had for a party and appropriate the Guinness logo. Saint Fratty’s Day t-shirt design was created.
I had a similar font from an older t-shirt design. I also recreated the harp to scale properly. I wish I could say this was something difficult to create, but it took just scaling the font correctly, adding the cuts in the “A” and drawing the harp with the pen tool. I hope she surpasses her goal now! If you’d like, support my sister by donating to her charity here!
