Pampling’s In the Woods

In the Woods by dandingeroz does a great job of communicating the vastness of nature. The height of the shirt is used well, creating the illusion of heavily forested mountains in the way it layers foggy lines of treetops over each other. You get the sense that anything could be in those foggy patches, and that if the clouds disappeared the scene would suddenly be even more lush with plants and animals. This technique of using fog as a major element helps the design to sit well on the white fabric of the shirt, turning that blankness into just more heavy mist. The pair of bears and lonely tent at the bottom of the piece do a good job of establishing a scale for the art, as well as adding to the narrative of nature as a place full of life and wildness that a camper could be surrounded by, and maybe even lost in. A great design, my only wish is that the print was bigger to give even more of a sense of the largeness of the wild.

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).
