Bombay Bicycle Club T-shirt Design

Here's my design for the Bombay Bicycle Club T-shirt competition running on 5oup. The band have been around a while and they've always been on my list of band's to listen to and now I've heard some of their new album 'flaws' and it's as beautiful as flaws. Only the top ten designs get seen by the band so go here to vote. My design is a repetition of an abstract pencil drawing made into a flower shape and then cut through with a negative spaced triangle and some circles. I've always been interested in contradictions and love simple minimalism and colour fields as much as repetition based processes and highly detailed work so I thought I'd combine the two. I hope to develop these ideas into some new abstract paintings, I haven't painted for ages so it's exciting and scary; did you know I love contradictions?
