I set out to design a portrait of both athletes using my Sliced Pixel technique. A real challenge with this design was the fact that I was restricted to only use up to 8 colors, and of course still keep Nadal and Federer recognizable, quite different from all other full-color Sliced Pixels I've been making before this.
The limits in color use where necessary because of the printing process; each shirt has been screen printed. Both designs were available in stores worldwide in a total of seven color variations, for both men and boys.
