Lain Lee sent me a tweet about his awesome Kickstarter project, through which he is trying to get three of his designs funded and printed. The designs are all great, but this one is my definite favorite. It’s goofy, and I love the style. I was never a true doodler in class (I just went with geometric shapes), but I have respect for all those with the Doodle Power. You can head over to the Kickstarter page to get all the details and find out how you can secure one of these bad boys to drape across your chest.
It’s super late so I’m only briefly checking in to let you guys know about this awesome t-shirt from Graniph. It’s called Life is Fun, and I love the simple nature of the illustration. The guy looks like he’s having a great time with his cigar and skateboard! You can buy it for ~$29.71 over at the Graniph Store.
Let me start out with a quote from Dark Cycle Clothing, the designer of this t-shirt: “Tyrannosaurus Rex. Bike. T-Shirt. What more could you want?” They’ve summed up the essence of this t-shirt exceptionally well. It covers all the characteristics of a high quality shirt, and it looks friggin’ awesome doing it. The green on white looks great, and I love shirts that have a T-Rex riding a bike (there are probably 20-30 of these out there–it’s a more common design than you’d think).
You can grab the design for $21 from Dark Cycle Clothing’s Etsy shop. They also have it in numerous other color combinations, as well as women’s and kid’s sizes. They print on American Apparel t-shirts. As you might surmise, Dark Cycle Clothing’s store is mostly dedicated to bicycle themed t-shirts. Kudos to Hide Your Arms for bringing them to my attention.
I’m finally back from vacation and ready to get back to posting at a more regular clip. I thought I would get that started with this awesome, awesome t-shirt from Headline Shirts. It’s called Hunter S. Giraffe, and it rules. Check it out:
Hunter S. Thompson is a total badass, so whoever at Headline Shirts came up with the idea of making a giraffe version of him is a brilliant person. The design features the giraffe with Hunter’s customary hat and cigarette. It’s just something about a Hunter S. Thompson’like giraffe that gets me. So yeah, this design f&*&ing rules (censoring myself for effect).
I don’t post shirts like this a lot, but it’s too odd looking not to post. It’s probably my favorite take on the whole cat meme thing, just because it’s so horribly drawn. It’s almost mocking the cat meme (at least in my opinion, which is probably wrong). Check it out:
As you can see, the shirt is intentionally drawn badly–it’s so horrible it makes me laugh. Now, whether you’re willing to spend the 60 pounds that this t-shirt costs to buy something horribly drawn is one thing, but, I think this design is pretty awesome. Essentially, I admit this design is essentially expensive eye-candy (well, in a way…), but I liked it too much not to share. If you do want to buy it, or just want to check out the rest of Maison Twenty, go to this link.
T-Shirt Contest just released their newest shirt, which features an awesome mashup of da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man and Pikachu from Pokemon. Sounds like odd subject matter, right? I guess, but it’s goofily awesome. Check it out:
I still remember playing Pokemon on my Gameboy Color when I was a wee lad, so I’ll always have a soft spot for such subject matter. Pikachu just has that inherent magnetism, so when he gets put on a shirt, people like it. You can buy Vitruvian Mon for only $12.00 over at T-Shirt Contest. Tom Ledin is the actual artist for this t-shirt, and he resides out in San Francisco.
Goodie Two Sleeves is a brand that I really enjoy, and they have always been to me (see ad on right), so I’m happy to post this ridiculous (in a good way) t-shirt I just found from them. It’s called Baby Baby Baby Meow, and features a…cat with Justin Bieber hair. Yes, this shirt is an illustration of an itty bitty kitten with Justin Bieber hair. Ridiculous. I dig it. Something about that hair and those cute little kitten eyes just melt my soul. The signature hoodie is a very nice touch as well. I would usually never post anything Bieber related, but this one makes the cut based on sheer goofiness.
You can buy this t-shirt from Goodie Two Sleeves for $21.95. For those who don’t know, Goodie Two Sleeves’ blank t-shirts are some of the most comfortable things around. You will be riding around in pure, unadulterated, cotton goodness. Yes, it feels as awesome as it sounds.
Are you ready for an absolutely ridiculous t-shirt? I hope so, because I present to you, Zombie Squirrel from the German brand Denada. This shirt is just crazy (awesome). All the little details–the brains in the acorn, the tattoos on the squirrel, the facial expression, it’s all great. Plus just the concept…IT”S A FRIGGIN’ ZOMBIE SQUIRREL. I like this t-shirt a lot, and kudos to Andy from Hamburg (the man behind Denada) for having the courage to show the world just how dangerous zombie squirrels can be.
You can add this ridiculawesome t-shirt to your closet for 29.90 Euro. Buy it, if only for the looks you’ll get from everyone around you.
I’ve got a great, yet cringe-worthy pun themed t-shirt for you today, called “Assault and Battery Love Story” from a designer named Boots on MySoti. From my interpretation of the shirt, a “Battery” killed a “Pepper Shaker” so that he could be with “A Salt (Shaker). Yeah, it’s definitely goofy–but I’ve told you in the past that I enjoy horrible puns, especially when they’re on t-shirts.
You buy it for $23 at the MySoti store. You can choose to have it printed on either American Apparel (a little more expensive), or a more basic shirt.
I’m popping in late this evening to show off a super rad t-shirt that I found while doing my regular browse around Etsy. The t-shirt, in all its goofy glory, depicts a robot boxing with a T-Rex. I don’t pretend to know why they’re fighting, but I do know that the mere fact that they are fighting is awesomely bad-ass. The design is simple, yet cool looking. I dig it.
You can buy the shirt for $25.00 at Gnome Enterprise’s Etsy store. It’s printed on a charcoal American Apparel tri-blend athletic tee, so you can be sure you’ll be comfortable while showing off your robot/t-rex prize fight. Also, if you’re ever bored, I recommend you just take a browse around Etsy. It’s truly a great way to kill time and find really unique stuff.
