Here's the story behind this shirt design:
The 1981 Springbok Tour was a rugby tour where the South African team, the Springboks, traveled to New Zealand to play a bunch of games. As South African was still experiencing apartheid at this time, it was a very controversial decision to allow the team to compete in New Zealand, and it was heavily protested.
Anyway, in my illustration the springbok is crying, shamed by its actions, as it clings to a rugby ball that features a map of New Zealand.
