Planet of the Abes

pota-posterThis T-shirt design illustration is based on a poster for the original movie Planet of the Apes (see the thumbnail on the right)

I was limited to only 6 colours, so I decided to create it in Illustrator. Using a Wacom tablet, I recreated the major shading and swapped out the apes with Abes.

Having the image cropped as a rectangle (like the poster) was a bit boring, so I cropped it as a top hat, to add to the general look and feel of Abraham Lincoln.

Hope you like it!
