Mick Coulas creates 3D skeleton art for Rattlin Jack Performance Apparel

Rattlin Jack’s Digital Marine Art captures the passion of the die-hard fisherman with a unique perspective and unique media. All images are created digitally, some with elements from a 3D program.

About Rattlin Jack: First Mick creates his Digital Marine Art with a wire frame skeleton in a 3D program. Then he maps bone texture on to the 3D wireframe, creates lighting then brings the results into Photoshop. This is where he adds a shredded T-shirt, and casts shadows on to the skeleton. He then outputs a Dye Sublimation transfer which is hot pressed on to a Rattlin Jack™ Performance shirt, which does not interrupt the breathe-ability of the fabric.

A gold miner had 4 teams going to the Bahamas to participate in the Spice Island Bill Fish Tournament, so Mick turned the skeleton into gold instead of bone!

About Mick Coulas Digital Artist

Mick Coulas Digital Illustrator and Fly Fisherman Venice Florida.

Canadian born, Toronto educated Illustrator Mick Coulas hung up his airbrush in 1996 and began Photoshop and 3D modeling. He has executed many realistic composites with retouching for many editorial clients including The Wall Street Journal. Mick also composites and retouches images for advertising or promotion.

Our Dye Sublimation production is not like a silkscreen process. The printing dyes the fabric, and never interrupts the breathe-ability of the fabric. Also, the image will never become cracked or peel off.  We try to bring the best quality and thoughtfulness to our apparel.
