Roots and Wings - sketch for a possible t-shirt design

roots and wings

This is a first draft, for a friend who asked if I could design the back of a church retreat t-shirt. It's an Anglican church retreat - ironically, I'm working off a Quaker t-shirt I remember wearing as a kid...

I need to work on bigger paper, but this is okay for a first draft. Not a great photo, but I'm too tired to deal with lighting.

I did this tonight while my husband fell asleep watching Judgment at Nuremberg. I obviously need to create things right now, regardless of my statement that I'm currently in 'creative hibernation' (I've been wanting to bake cookies for days, too).

Have you come up with any later drafts? I like the concept, but am wondering if you could make the cross look more organically part of the tree, and less like it might be graffiti.

I do have a later draft

I do have a later draft - I should post that. But the cross still looks carved into the tree. I like the idea of making it more organic, wish I'd thought of that sooner. It would work better with the overall concept.
