San Pugliese

For Portland Tango Festival 2019, I was commissioned to create a promotional T-shirt featuring a famous tango composer. The choice was clear from the start; Osvaldo Pugliese. Not only is he a towering figure in tango history , with both a famous and distinct likeness, but he also bears the nickname “San Pugliese,” which is just asking for a caricature! I went ahead with an vintage style in order to evoke the golden age of Argentine Tango, plus a bright but limited palette to make it pop against the black material. A true success.
