Johnny Karate is a martial arts studio of my instructor and friend John Laracuente. He was looking for some new shirts and told me about his concept inspired by baseball script “like the Brooklyn Dodgers.”

Research for this project involved looking at some of the most iconic scripts in baseball for common traits.

After sharing some sketches after Muay Thai class, we landed on a script we liked and Johnny had the idea of working a black belt into the underline. With that addition, and a little help from the computer, we had ourselves a T-Shirt design.
