alexander_roe got their new t-shirt by running a design contest:
Cowboy with a climbing twist. Enquire within.
Check out alexander_roe's T-shirt contest…
Open, I want the artist to have some creative space.
The concept is a routesetting Cowboy. What is routesetting/ what is a routesetter? A routesetter is a person who works in a indoor rock climbing gym, they are tasked with building (setting) the climbs/routes. More info here if you like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Route_setter Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-xcgrOSQCxLaMsof-uw0z3-bJGDEqhge I want you to imagine that a Cowboy has strolled on in from the wild west and started routesetting. Keeping his cowboy style but with a few touches that signify that he is a routesetter. A few ideas that I imagine will looks good (but not required, choose and do what you feel looks best). - The impact driver. If you google image routesetter, you will see that they always have some form of impact driver or drill. I think it would be cool if the cowboy has a driver/drill with wild west styling (maybe like a revolver) of course with a holster to match. https://images.app.goo.gl/eowRdoD4UrfBQneP7 - The other classic setting tool is the T-wrench. This is the OG tool for setters. I think it could be implemented in place of a knife, possibly with a scabbard to match. Another though is the shape could be used as a symbol on the characters belt. https://images.app.goo.gl/XmF8ogT4eyyubKEz5 - Routesetters use alot of bolts that look like this https://images.app.goo.gl/How6HUr41LHp21uWA Maybe these could be used in place of bullets on either a hatband, bullet sash or similar. https://images.app.goo.gl/vmCvxec6wJNKGTuC9 https://images.app.goo.gl/1DPbBoWnb8QEeFmY8 - Setters use a lot of wood screws, the cowboy could have one in his mouth tooth pick style. https://images.app.goo.gl/cppSjuLc8F5cmfBK8 https://images.app.goo.gl/6jKsyJw4qQr3bfh46 - Some sort of background to sink the design into the shirt would be cool, this is open if anyone wants to give it a go. - Tumbleweed: A climbing version of a tumble weed could look good. Maybe a chalk bag rolling along in a mist of chalk? https://images.app.goo.gl/8WojBEL4cJU9e5su6 - Climbing rope lasso. - Feel free to play with a carabiner or two if you can style it to match. https://images.app.goo.gl/ZtVvwYUUbfG85trq9 - Tool belt. Almost all setters wear some sort of tool belt to hold screws and bolts. It would be one sided or double sided. Everyone uses a different one. https://www.instagram.com/p/B3MoqEXIW8X/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Please keep in mind these are not creative constraints! I would love to see the drill/gun idea but I do trust in the artist to bring this character to life.
