Evil Scream from A Better Tomorrow

I hinted about this shirt yesterday on Twitter. I wasn’t exaggerating, this is definitely one of my favorite designs, and one of the best I’ve seen in a while.

This shirt is, of course, based on the existential hard-on of a painting that is Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” (that sound kind of mean…I like The Scream). Ben Chen, the artist of the shirt, reproduces Munch’s painting within the world of Batman. The Joker replaces the “screamer,” and Batman replaces the people in the background of the original painting. Ben then added a bunch of small references–the cards, the bat signal–that you should check out in the detailed product pictures on the A Better Tomorrow site.

I really, really like this shirt. I love how unique it is, and I think Ben executed the design perfectly. It’s got that “it factor”–as soon as I saw it, even though the Euro exchange rate makes it incredibly expensive, I had to have it. This shirt is the bomb.

If you agree, you can pick it up for 22 Euro from the German shop A Better Tomorrow.

Power–Kanye West T-Shirt from The Cooler Collective

With this shirt, The Cooler Collective keep up their awesome trend of great rapper shirts. Power is a great song (that beat is nasty, son), and Kanye with lazers shooting from his eyes is cool as hell. I also love how it looks a bit like an old horror movie poster. This shirt is sweet like candy.

So yeah…I’m a huge fan of this shirt. Go check it out at The Cooler Collective, because it’s cooler than most shirts (see what I horribly did there?). It’ll cost you $21.00, which is a small price to pay. We’ve also got a Cooler Collective coupon page, which will be updated whenever applicable.

P.S. The design is actually titled, “Beam Me Up”, which I think is nifty too.

Introducing Local Tees

Much like Coty, when I read the subject on Local Tees email to me and saw their name, I didn’t have high expectations. Preconceptions are made to be broken though (that’s the saying right?), because Local Tees has a bunch of great designs. Local Tees is founded on the concept of high quality tees, printed in limited edition, numbered runs (more on that directly from them at the bottom of the post). It’s a cool idea, especially when the designs are great…which they are. I’ve picked four of my favorites, but you should check them all out.

Definitely expect more posts about these guys in the future.

Local Tees was established in 2010 and was born based on an original idea, with that concept in mind, Local Tees was born and created by Three locals that began with a clear ambition of creating high-end limited edition t-shirts. With a specially chosen, high quality fabric, where the artwork is represented on 50 tees each with an edition number, ensuring no reprints will be forced.

We believe in building an international network by collaborating with artists that represent ground-breaking self made inspiring artwork, to showcase the exceptional talents from all around the world.

Be Formless, Shapeless…from Design by Humans

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything from Design by Humans, so I thought I would take some time on a Friday night to rectify that. I’ve gotta be honest, I’m not attracted to the majority of DBH’s designs anymore, but…I do really like this one. The yellow really pops–it’s got that pizazz!–and I dig the fluid, paint-splash’y rendering of the person. It looks overall cool. I might just have to buy this one.

If you would like to be cool like me, you can pick this one up for $21.00 at Design by Humans; it’s printed on an American Apparel blank (since when did Design by Humans start using American Apparel? That’s bangin’). I’ve also still got 10% off Design by Humans coupons for you to use, and I’m continuing to run my deal where I’ll give you 25% off your entire order (not stackable with the coupon unfortunately). Mad savings, yo.

Clearance Sale from Fullbleed–A Bunch of Shirts for $8.00

I’m quite a bit late on posting this (gee wiz! That’s a surprise), but I couldn’t pass up the chance at letting everyone know about super cheap shirts from one of my favorite companies out there. Fullbleed is having a clearance sale for a bunch of last pressing designs, which means you can get some awesome (90% of Fullbleed’s shirts rock–it’s not like you’re getting rejects) shirts for only $8.00.

I clicked around a bit and from what I can tell most of the designs are still in stock, although, as mentioned, I’m super late posting this. If you’re interested (and you should be), head on over to the Fullbleed store and check it out.

P.S. How about that National Championship last night? Nothing like ending the game on an incredible fluke play (although it was legal). Just throwin’ in a little sports talk, because ya know, it’s 1:20 and I have no one else to talk to. I’m glad Auburn won, because unlike most people living outside Alabama, I like Cam Newton. He smiles when he plays, which is cool in my short, parenthetical paradise of a book.

Retired Plumber, a Great Mario Shirt from 604 Republic

My house has been engaging in quite a bit of Mario related action this semester, whether that be the Mario series itself, or Super Smash Bros. When smashing, Mario is one of my go to characters, as he’s a certified bad-ass. Thus, you can see why I was quite excited when I got an email from Sebastion of 604 Republic about one of their newest releases, Retired Plumber.

The shirt is damn near perfect. The concept, an old and retired Mario, is top-notch, and the execution of the design doesn’t disappoint. He looks just how I would picture Mario to look after spending his younger years gallivanting around jumping shells and smashing bricks. He’s certainly earned all those medals. To finish up my little string of praise, I also like how much his red hat pops out, it reminds me a bit of the red hat in the Life Aquatic shirt I posted awhile ago.

I love this design, and I hope you do too. If you fulfill my hopes, you can go buy it for $18.95 at 604 Republic, who have some more great designs which will be featured soon.

Fear N Loathing from LTD Tee–Hunter S. Thompson

Hunter S. Thompson is an unequivocal badass. I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas straight through in one sitting because of this fact. If you want a story of drug filled fun and mayhem I recommend you do the same.

I dig this shirt from LTD Tee because it’s simple, but still manages to capture Mr. Thompson. The hair, the glasses, the cigarette, it’s all him. Cloxboy (the artist) did a great job on this one.

You can pick it up for $26.99 at LTD Tee. With that $26.99, you get, in addition to the shirt, an 8×10 art print, a certificate of authenticity, some stickers, and a custom box. Pretty cool.

You can also use the coupon code “troundup” for 20% off your order, bringing it down to $21.59. A dedicated coupon page for LTD Tee will be coming soon.

Unique Tie-dye Shirts from B’s Tees

I dig well done, interesting tie-dye shirts, which consequently leads to me  liking B’s Tees very much. You can choose your blank shirt and colors and have B make you a shirt from scratch, or you can pick from one of her individually number and signed designs (none of those tie-dye mills who crank out huge batches of the exact same design).

The customization is a cool touch, and her designs are really interesting and well done. I’ve grabbed just a few samples to post here, but you should check them all out.

You can visit B’s Tees by going here. Prices start at $17.00.
