1 left - Jack White 10
Ok, so at this point I know what I want to do and I blocked in a quick rough for both Rob and Jack to see. Jack responded with: "this could be a cool sort of emblem/logo if the horse was winced back in pain with an arrow through him that has fletching (feathers) at the left side. i like it."
Rob then referenced some past prints I did with smoky elements in them and suggested I go in that direction for the final. The horse ended up being built out of isolated smoke pieces that were layered and built up to achieve the result you see here. I hadn't really done something exactly like this before but it wasn't out of my wheelhouse either. I attached my first pass at it here complete with notes from Rob. I jokingly referred to his marks as a souped up version of a Tecmo Bowl playbook. Hopefully, this details some of the collaborative process for you all.
