Red Crowned Crows Shirt
See all Fantasy Shirts
I was glad to see this Crowned Crows shirt go into reprint on Design by Humans. I think this design is awesome. I love simple, two-toned imagery for t shirts!
Allow me to geek out for a second. This shirt kind of reminds me of a excellent fantasy novel, Deadhouse Gates, by Steven Erikson. I’m sure the designer of the shirt, who by the way, has won several DBH design contests, had other inspirations, but I am reminded of the character, Coltaine, the war-leader of a peoples known as the Wickans. He was a total badass war tactician and wore a cape of crow feathers. The Wickans’ souls, at the time of death, could also be carried off by crows and delivered to another body, thereby facilitating a reincarnation of sorts.
Oh my god, I didn’t even realize I could geek out that hard! I am awesome.
Back to business. DBH is running an end of year sale until Jan 09, 2011. Only $12! There are still a lot of mens’ sizes but only M for women.
