Duncan Hills Coffee

Duncan Hills Coffee by Loco Robo Co.

Here is my latest T-Shirt design. I have seen a lot of other Starbucks spoofs floating around. The newest season of Metalocalypse is running, so I've been watching it and listening to a lot of Dethklok lately. I was surprised to find that this concept hadn't been done before. I jumped on the idea immediately!

Original concept sketch.

So I had the idea floating around in my head for a while, and finally had a second to sketch it out (above). I first sketched out a really rough version of the actual Starbucks logo. Then I drew the new design of Nathan Explosion over. I used a Sharpie to see if the black and white shapes would work out well.

I had a lot of trouble doing the devil horns, every time I drew the hand it just didn't look right. So I took a photo of my own hand at the exact angle I wanted and referenced that. I decided to swap it to the right arm (left of design) and add Nathan's trademark microphone.

Finally I took the original stars on the Starbucks logo and flipped them upside down and outlined them into pentagrams. I have thought about doing a version for each member of the band, similar to the coffee mug episode. If I find the time, I probably will. That way people can wear their favorite Dethklok member.

(June 2016 Update: I apologize for the water marks on the image, people keep stealing my design and trying to sell it as their own.)
