Ta(ng)o by marvelleftw Ta(ng)o by marvelleftw
I'm sure you know about the yin yang symbol of tao? This makes complete sense to anyone who's familiar with tango as well.
I wanted to make this full vector but I feel the concept is better told with these loose stylized lines.

I hope you enjoy this as much as me while I worked long and hard to give it my best.

EDIT: The fun begins! Ta(ng)o is now up for scoring on Threadless - vote $5 if you'd like to wear this! Click here [link]

It was pretty straightforward actually :)
My first tango lesson. I loved the idea. The interconnectedness of the dancers. Instantly thought of the yin yang. And after a while whilst brainstorming cool ideas for t-shirt designs, this came to mind. A sort of "logo" for tango.

congrats on the DD bro. This is amazing! Just the fluidity of the characters really reminds me of Al Hirschfeld's stuff. Nice job
