Designing in black and white...

Hey everybody!
Here's some stuff I've been working on recently.  I wanted to put the pieces together to see how they looked-- kind of like when you step back from a painting to see if you've got the proportions correct.  

These are all shirt designs for a line of t-shirts that I'm going to be producing out of my shop.  I'm pretty excited about them.  I think I'm going to do some more with this series, but I'm not sure what to do next.

These are great dude! Doing work in straight up black and white is never as easy as it looks.. As for what you could do next, there's always cowboys, or a fisherman mayhaps.

and by "...never as easy as it looks", I mean I have more difficulty with it than I'd like sometimes.

Thanks, man! I agree. I usually don't have any problems when it comes to the line work, but when I have to flesh something out totally in one color, it gets tricky.

Cowboys and fishermen. You might be on to something there. I can see the cowboy already.
