For the Antiques Roadshow T shirt image this season I presented a few ideas, the one they chose was of an old tattered broadside with the cities they will visit.

The client pulled me back a bit and I refocused on the sketch which they really liked for it's simplicity and energy.
I find that when jumping from a sketch to working in a vector program it's too easy to take things a bit too far and finished too fast.
