Re: Dogfish Key Into the Depths World Tour


After a very long hiatus, I'm back. I couldn't resist this derby and finally found a little bit of time I could devote to a design. I did this in a style I call typogRAFFITI or typographyTI or something like that. I was going to do one called Majicman only to find out that was an electronica band in the 1990s. So we have Dogfish Key instead. The band is ready to launch their "Into The Depths" World Tour. Critiques welcome. Thanks for looking and if you like it, please spare a vote. Take care.

I like that technique and it looks really cool with the band shirt. I like your color choices as well. I don't quite get why Dogfish Key is a shark, but then I don't find it bothers me either. Good job!

Thank you very much. It is a style I started doing as a kid, back in my breakdancing days. Don't ask. I'll keep working on it and some of my other styles as time permits. Need to get my hand back but time is scarce.

As for the dogfish, this particular species is the infamous spiny dogfish, that ole' spurdog! There are over 100 species of shark in the dogfish order. So Dogfish Key is some unchartered island north of No Name Key (you pass it on your way to Key West).

I'm not sure what goes on on Dogfish Key. I'm not so sure I want to know. Tequesta legend has it that the only dogfish on Dogfish Key were of the human variety, buccaneers perhaps. As for the band, I don't know just what kind of band would be inspired by such a place.

On another side note, a lot of folks think of dogfish as garbage fish. I think not. They are important to their ecosystems and are essentially the most successful of sharks. And they're cool looking.

Thanks again for your compliments. They are much appreciated and I am glad you like the design. Take care.

Thanks. If I get it printed I will definitely let you know. I actually thought about submitting it to Dogfish Head and already sorted out how I would modify it to read that way instead. If that happens and something comes of it, I will definitely let you know as well. Thanks again.

Nice Concept, but a bit too blocky for me.

What is this?

Thank you for the feedback. I wrestled with that but ultimately felt like a top-down gradient worked best to portray going into the deep. Thanks again.
