Pampling’s Wilderness

Wilderness by dandingeroz is a neat spin on the trend of using silhouettes filled with landscapes that suggest detail. The difference here is that there’s no forced silhouette, and the dark lines of the tree on the white shirt are all the outline needed to create the deer. In another innovation, there’s also some shading offered within the shape that gives the deer’s head some dimension. I’m torn on that choice, because while I appreciate how it clarifies the animal’s form and makes it feel more real, there’s also no real attempt to mask the shading as clouds which might have helped the tree scene to feel more authentic. At any rate, the effect is strong and I love the way the stiff branches are livened up with birds perched on them and flying out of the animal’s confines. It helps the art to feel loose and free despite the technical requirements of the style.

Pampling has two options for winners of their contest. XPress winners earn 1 euro per shirt sold, with a minimum of 100 euros guaranteed. If the design sells well, designers may have the option of earning 500 euros to give Pampling the exclusive printing rights for one year. The second option is Classic winners, who earn 680 euros cash and 120 euros in t-shirts (or 720 euros cash) for the first 400 units and exclusive rights for 3 years. If the design is reprinted, the artist earns 850 euros cash and 150 euros in Pampling products (or 900 euros cash).
