About the T Shirt...

Original T shirt design from Yonil, an illustrator and graphic designer based in Tel-Aviv, Israel. This is one of the new designs from his second collection released last month.

Yonil kindly gave us the lowdown on his new collection and where he’s up to…

Yonil-1

“For the past few years i’ve been messing here and there with T-shirt designs on several websites like DBH and Threadless, and last summer i have finally decided to actually try and make it on my own. I had so much “leftover” material that i had laying around and i just wanted it to be printed on a shirt and be out-there.

The new YONIL line was brought into this world August 2012 and The 2nd collection was just released a little under a month ago with brand new designs and new tank-tops for the ladies.

I design all my tees by myself and I also oversee production of the tees. the quality of the shirts, as I see it, is as important as the print itself. My tees are 100% combed cotton which is very light and soft and i use DTG (Direct-To-Garment) for printing which i find better for what i do than the classic screen printing

Since I come from a graphic design and visual communication background, it is super important for me that my designs will have a meaning or a story behind them. Sometimes it’s a personal story, other times it’s political but the idea and the meaning is always there.

I love textures, I was drawing with pens and pencils my whole life and I’ve never been able to work with a tablet, but recently I got myself a new Wacom Cintiq and it definitely made the whole difference for me. work is simply easier and much more flowing. I still incorporate a lot of textures and roughness into my designs simply for the love of the metrials. So I scan stuff and dirty papers and take photos of dirty walls and work with it to “dirty-up” the designs.”
