Coniston End-to-end 2016: the t-shirt

I’ve been sitting on this one for a while, quietly pleased with myself: I was asked to do the back of the t-shirt design for Chillswim’s Coniston end-to-end swim – a lovely swim of about 5.25 miles, the full length of lake Coniston in Cumbria. I swam it last year and I’m swimming it again this year, only the difference is this time I don’t intend to wear a wetsuit. And so you can imagine I was a just a bit excited to be asked to create the design for the back of the t-shirt.

The blue-background / orange tow-floats was the first version before I realized the floats are going to be pink this year (which is also highly exciting) but I do like the complimentary colours of blue and orange so I’m posting this one too…
You can order t-shirts via:
(These will be mailed out after the Chillswim Coniston event on the 3rd Sept). Pre-orders can be collected at the Arena Chillswim Coniston registration and Race HQ at John Ruskin School.

  1. Great design. Love them both but agree with you about the orange–bold and striking. N.

    I like it. I wonder how some of your other art might look on a shirt.

  3. Thanks! This was drawn a bit differently – flat colours no half-tones, which will work better for printing
