The Crabbers, poetry in motion...

The Crabbers!

some of my earliest, and favorite memories are of me and my family crabbing in Ocean City, MD. look at these tasty little guys:

i've always wanted to design a crab-themed jersey of some sort. i copy & pasted a picture of a crab into AutoCAD. loosely traced it out. pulled the trace off of the image, then rearranged some of the legs. also trimmed, reshaped, and cleaned up some lines for a silhouette-like result:
printed to scale on 11x17 paper, and cut. pasted that cut onto heavy card-stock/construction paper and made a template (yellow):

used a simple block lettering, then spaced and radially arched the letters (process from right to left):

glued and sewing the front of the jersey. the jersey is actually a nike dri-fit sleeveless:

front, almost finished:

pics of the back will be posted soon!
