Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: Illustrated T-Shirts

Client: Personal project
Year: 2018

For this fun self-initiated side project I illustrated all of the t-shirts that Scott wears in Edgar Wright's 2010 film "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World". Each t-shirt is meant to look like a power-up from a video game, floating over an invisible plane with a pixellated pulsing ring in the background. This is meant to echo the video game aesthetic and references found in the film.

The pixel-style text is also meant to reflect the 8-bit gaming vibe. Each t-shirt name is set in white type on a black box, just like the film scene [and also comic panel in the graphic novel] that shows which of the things in the apartment belong to Scott or Wallace.

This project was a chance to practice my Illustrator skills and an excuse to rewatch Scott Pilgrim over and over for 'research' purposes :P The reference material came from image stills I captured from the DVD, and also this article I found on the many cool t-shirts that appear in 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World': Scott Pilgrim T-shirts.
