Project:
Create a custom t-shirt design for the cage fighter Chad "Saber Tooth" Tyler to wear during his match entrances and whenever he isn't inside the ring crushing skulls. 
 
Client:
Semi-professional cage fighter Chad "Saber Tooth" Tyler. 
 
Description:
Tyler is half Russian, which he wanted to have represented on the shirt. The Russian text at the top of the shirt, "сабля-зуба", translates to Saber Tooth. I took cues from Russian constructivist posters and sport team mascots to develop the look of the shirt. Tyler requested scratch marks on the back of the shirt, which I arranged to form a large tooth shape. A couple of his sponsors' logos also appear on the back.
