Andy Warhol was a pretty cool guy, which automatically makes his skull cool, and therefore the same designation for a shirt with his skull on it is only natural to follow (it’s a cool shirt). Not to mention, psychadelic shades on a skull look good no matter whose skull it is.
Use this shirt to scare off anyone looking to fundamentally change the way that the general public perceives art.
You can grab this one for $33.27 at Fair Weather Friends. It’s printed on a white American Apparel tee.
A big thank you to Rumplo for helping me find this gem.
I was in Europe when this shirt dropped, otherwise this would have been posted a long time ago. This design is straight up excellent, as would be expected from mathiole (you’ve probably seen his stuff on Design by Humans). I love the lack of a head, and the foil is just fantastic. Long story short, I’m buying this shirt as soon as I publish this post.
You can grab this one for $18.00 at Shirt Fight. They print on American Apparel, and shipping is pretty cheap–only $2ish I believe.
Ok, so I might have lied about having an Internet connection while I was in Ohio. Now I’m back for good though (or at least for the next 3 weeks for sure), so hopefully there will be a good stretch of uninterrupted posting.
Today’s shirt is Bomb Drop from the ever cool and supportive (they’re an advertiser!) ReThink Clothing. It’s a pretty slick looking release. I’ll let them give it a quick description in their own words:
bomb,bomb,bomb, bomb,bom babomb.
Ok, it may be more than that. A bomb unraveling in the clouds might symbolize peace and disarmament to some and GOOD. That is the great thing about this shirt to some its a symbol of peace and hope, to others it looks flipping cool!
I’d say they’re fairly accurate. You can pick it up for $19.99 at their site. I think you can also use the code TROUNDUP for 20% off your order, so hopefully that’s helpful. They print on American Apparel.
Here’s a shirt from a company, Paper Back Clothing, that I’ve never written about before. I came upon them through Rumplo, and I’m really glad I did, because they’ve got some sick designs going on over there. There are a bunch I like–I just decided to write about this one because it was one of my top favorites. I love the blue and green color scheme on it, as well as the geometry and idea behind the shirt, which, quoting them, is “Infinite space…. need i say more?”.
Pick this one up from Paper Root Clothing for $23.00 on an American Apparel shirt.
Rise and Resist is still at it–it being pumping out quality designs every week. I like how the shades grab your attention on this shirt. I also love the color they decided to print on–it’s way underused and way awesome. I wish more companies would print on some of American Apparel’s less “standard” colors, it adds some real pizazz to the design.
Right now this one will run you $18 at RandR. Go pick one up, or don’t–either way, check out RandR for some sweet designs.
I have yet to write about Shirt Fight, not because I don’t like them, but more because I just…never got around to it, I suppose. I decided to change that today, because I like this week’s winner, Techno Tiger. This design was the winner for the contest theme, “The Letter T.” Pretty sweet–colorful designs usually catch my eye, I suppose I’m a sucker like that.
You can grab it for 4 more days for $15, after that the price jumps up to $21. They print on American Apparel.
I just got an email from Justin letting me know about Plastic Sound Supply’s newest shirt release. First, a little background on Plastic Sound Supply from Justin himself:
We’re a record label from Denver, Colorado, specializing in experimental and offbeat electronic music, art, video, and design. For fans of Ghostly, m3rck, Schematic, Hefty, etc.
I think the fact that they’re a record label that puts out non-band designs is pretty neat and unique. I also really like the design because, let’s be honest, toy guns were really cool when we were kids (or now still depending on my mood).
It will run you $23 including shipping on an American Apparel blank. Get the goods at Plastic Sound Supply.
I’m a sucker for using American Apparel’s striped tees like this, so I think that ties in somewhat with why I like this design. I’m not trying to discredit the design with that though, because a pirate octopus is an excellent design in itself–I’m trying to think of ways to describe a pirate octopus other than badass, because I feel like I use that a lot. So you have a cool blank that isn’t used that often combined with a very unique and well done design. This equation equals cottony t-shirt goodness, so you should probably buy it.
It will run you $22 at Sharp Shirter, on the aforementioned American Apparel blank.
