Style/theme ideas for the t-shirt design

Feel free to leave gaps in between the various bones to let the black background show through.

This shirt will be marketed to drummers, so please do be accurate with the drumset. I would recommend a small 4-pc 'Jazz' style drumset.

The frame of reference we have in mind is not looking at the drums straight on, but rather if you were standing to the right of the drums and looking at them at an angle (with them off to your left). This is just a suggestion; by no means is it a strict requirement.

Clothing or apparel to design

Not specified


We are looking for a design that will be one color -- solid white -- on a black T-shirt. We want a cartoonish skeleton playing a bone drumset, with thigh bones instead of drumsticks. This should be a 10x12" image, with the words 'Old Drummers' on top and 'Never Die' on the bottom, in a BONE font.

What to avoid

Please avoid any angry or 'evil' looking skeletons.

Please avoid making the drumset too large. The upper half of the skeleton that shows above the drumset should be the focal point.

We want the skeleton to look cartoonish, but not 'cheesy'. Please no lousy cut n pasted clip art! :)
