Threadless just released an awesome set of t-shirts from one of their popular artists, Mike Mitchell. This entire line of shirts is dedicated to cartoon portraits of famous people (or other “living” things). Of these many awesome portraits, my favorite is one depicting Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation, because…well, because Ron Swanson is a total badass. It’s odd seeing him as a crying cartoon, but the rare moments of weakness that he shows must be immortalized forever. This shirt gets a solid A+ from troundup, and I will probably add it to my collection soon.
This t-shirt is an awesome play on the very recognizable Jack Daniels logo. Now, I’m not a huge Jack Daniels fan (Woodford Reserve for the good stuff, Jim Beam if you’re trying to be cheap), but I do enjoy this shirt very much. It’s very witty, and I love the different slogans–“Quality Personality Except When Wasted” might be my favorite. I feel like it applies to a good number of people.
In its current configuration you can buy this shirt for $26.65 from MySoti. You can also mess around with the blank it’s printed on and the color of the shirt (although you should definitely leave it as black). Enjoy, all you booze hounds.
You may know Society 6 from their awesome collaboration with Threadless. They’re much more than that though, and they have a ton of original content that is really great. I was just browsing their shirts and, while I like a whole heap of them, this shirt really stuck out to me. It’s Notorious B.I.G.’s song, Big Poppa, translated into French. With French being the language of love (supposedly), this is hilarious. The concept is brilliant, and this t-shirt rules.
You can buy French Poppa for $18.00 at the Society 6 store. They print on American Apparel and are offering free shipping until Sunday. Check out the rest of their stuff, because it’s awesome. You can also wait for it show up on troundup, because it definitely will.
Pop Chart Lab is an incredibly interesting brand that just released four awesome new designs. Their designs remind me of really detailed infographics, but made into t-shirt form. As Aileen informed me, all their shirts require hundreds of hours of research to get all the details right. These are no mere shirts. They have shirts exploring and mapping things like rap names, beer, movie monsters. All are incredibly detailed and accurate.
All of those are very cool (and will be posted about in the future), but this design showcasing famous haircuts from music is definitely my favorite. It has every relevant person on it. I won’t even try to list all the names, but if someone is notable and in modern music, they’re probably on the shirt. Shirts like these are always great for wearing, as you’ll definitely get tons of attention and people looking at your shirt. I like this design very much–it’s a cool concept, and it’s executed well down to the very last detail. Good stuff.
You can buy this shirt for $18.00 at Pop Chart Lab’s store. You can also zoom in on the shirt to see every haircut in detail. While you’re over there, be sure to check out all their other cool stuff as well.
Sleepy Dan has been emailing me for awhile about their shirts, so it’s about damn time I get around to posting something from them. They have a good number of shirts, but this homage to the classic Nintendo character, Bowser, is definitely my favorite. I love how they did the design and captured the 8-bit feel. Apparently more characters will be coming in the future, so I look forward to seeing those.
If you’re a big Nintendo/Bowser fan, you purchase this tribute for $26.00 from the Sleepy Dan store. All of Sleepy Dan’s shirts are limited edition runs, so once this bad boy sells out it’s gone forever. So basically, if you like it, buy it now. Also, if you want another cool Nintendo tee, check out this sweet Retired Mario t-shirt from 604 Republic that I posted about months ago.
This eye-bending perception trick is pretty popular, but as usual, Ugmonk made this shirt awesome by doing the design cleanly and choosing the perfect colors. It’s a very simple design, but Ugmonk gets the weighting of the borders and everything else perfect. I also love the white lines on the mint shirt (I think that’s the proper color nomenclature). So yeah, this is just another clean, simple, and awesome design from Ugmonk.
You can purchase Perception for $24.00 from the Ugmonk store. They print on American Apparel blanks, and as I mentioned, I believe the color of the blank is “mint”.
DoomCMYK, an artist who I think I’ve featured before (not entirely sure, though), has this awesome design called Hyrulogic. Hyrulogic is a mix between Zelda and Daft Punk, which pretty much guarantees that it’s going to be an awesome t-shirt. I’m not sure if there’s a connection beyond both subjects being super cool, but either way, I dig this design. Very nice job on the shirt.
David Seibei tweeted about his friend’s store, lulinternet, which turned me on to this awesome, 8-bit rainbow of pizza. I suppose those adjectives sound a little weird when put together like that, but this shirt is so goofy and awesome I had to share. You won’t find shirts like this anywhere else.
If you’d like a pizza rainbow on your chest, you can purchase the shirt for only $14.95 at the lulinternet store. They print on Tultex tees, and this design is currently on pre-order and will ship in late April or May.
