Uneetee’s Soldier’s Soul

Uneetee‘s Soldier’s Soul by AgostoFilipino is the site’s newest print, and one that stands out to me because it has such a strong military theme. While a lot of battle-inspired shirts focus on glory and drama, this feels like a much quieter, more angst-filled vision. He seems like a man haunted, someone doing what needs to be done but taking no joy in it. That’s a unique and more honest sort of portrayal, so I’m glad to see it. That said, I think the artwork itself could use some work. The man’s face seems strange and not in the same style as the rest of the piece. The helmet is even more problematic- because of the way the highlights fall and the art is cut off, it almost reads more as some kind of jaunty chapeau. But while it’s imperfect, the theme alone makes the design worth a look.
