One of the most distinguishable and renown figures in the world of strength. Atlas a Titan, but not just any Titan, THE Titan that holds the World. Why does Greek Mythology matter in regards to an illustration, well the reality is it comes down to symbolism. Atlas speaks Power, Stability, Timelessness, Support, and a classical epitome to Strength
Having looked at the initial images proved by Lift 4 Life I wanted to combine the aesthetic of the textures provided, while still maintain a unique illustration that holds true to my style. Once I knew we would be doing an Atlas illustration I spent some time looking at poses and angles that would look the most prolific, especially a post that would allow the wood and stone halves to show well. The idea of wood is to show growth, stone to show strength, and the overall theme of Atlas emulates the great power that is possible through Power-lifting, but more importantly the effect it has in the communities Lift 4 Life will be helping, Atlas holds our world up, but I l ike to this resonates with the idea that Power-lifting holds people who enjoy it together.
Lastly I want to touch on the overall style and theme, I wanted to have a very detailed and thought out design that would grab attention, the idea being these shirts are more than just a piece of fabric, they are going to be worn by people looking to help further the growth of Lift 4 Life and ultimately by lifters around the world who were helped by Lift 4 Life, so I wanted to create a powerful illustration that can be timeless.
