This design takes its inspiration from both the Blaxpoitation poster art of the 70's and the iconic image of Che Guevara from 1960.
Using the image of legendary Australian bushranger Ned Kelly as a base for the design. I illustrated the shadow areas and took the design into illustrator to be reworked, exaggerating the beard slightly and added the ear ring tunnel. The final piece was the Super Fly afro pick hence the name "Nedfro".
This image will work awesomely as a tee or a wall print.
The full work in progress development process can be found here on Behance
