The Matrat [Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Art]

A few years ago I made a matrat shirt because of my love of Jiu Jitsu.

The matrat artwork has made a lot of changes over the last 5 years. We have tried several different styles of the matrat to see if any of them were more suited to the ethos of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This version was done mostly in Adobe Illustrator. It was to be designed in a similar flavor as some of the old retro cartoons we all grew up with. We are very fond of retro / vintage graphic design. If you grew up in the 80s you can probably also see the influence from the graffiti world.
