I was approached by Made In the Now to illustrate a Tee design based on a democratically selected current event. Luckily, the article selected was coverage on flooding in Venice at the time, which provided an rich subject to base the design upon. The only other restriction on the project was the fact that I would only have one day to execute the work. I chose to illustrate the phrase "Acqua Alta", used by the Venetians to describe high water. I wanted the typography to feel very hand crafted, to mimic the kind of culture that makes Venice what it is.
