I just got an email from Dead Bury Dead about the release of their Spring 2011 designs. I dig a bunch of these shirts, but Open Road is my definite favorite because, well, I like Jack Kerouac (and the shirt looks cool). On the Road didn’t change my life, but it’s a good book, and it opened me up to his other work which is even better in my opinion. The Subterraneans still remains one of my favorite books. I recommend you read it–once you get used to having a fifteen page paragraph it’s a great trip.
Now, about this shirt. It’s a great picture of two men walking down a road seemingly leading to infinity. I like the dark colors, and I really like the picture–it definitely has a Beat/Kerouac’ian feel to it. You can pick it up for $29.99 at Dead Bury Dead. It’s a limited edition print, so don’t dilly dally (I think there’s only like 8 for each size left). Check out the rest of the new designs as well, ’cause they’re cool.
P.S. Dead Bury Dead might have taken one of the hottest graphic t-shirt product photos I’ve ever seen (plus it’s a cool photo in general). Check it:
God damn this shirt is brilliant! I never would have thought of this shirt, which I suppose is why I write about shirts rather than make them (although that might change soon!). The ghosts are just following Pacman everywhere–now he can’t even get his social networking on without them breathing down his neck.
I’m trying to decide if the shirt would come off better if they used the actual Twitter design (for the ghosts following). I’d have to see the two side by side to make the call. That being said, I still like how they implemented it. Witty concept + good design=successful shirt in Colin’s opinion.
You can pick this one up for €16.95. Yeah, that’s right, you unfortunately have to deal with the brutality of a horrible exchange rate. I’d say it’s worth the money though.
I’d like to introduce everyone to Acorn Factory, which is one of those always cool t-shirt charities. The extra cool thing about this one is they donate 100% of their profits towards helping bring education to under-served kids. That’s a damn cool mission, and the fact that they donate all their profits is generous and awesome. Go check out their shirts and help some kids get educated. You can check out their current project on the site too.
I have a friend who plays a good deal of Tetris (yeah, I’m looking at you, Sefton), which fits half of this shirt. I don’t think, however, that he deals a lot of cocaine. I like the slogan, even though I’m not a cocaine mover myself. It’s pretty witty in my opinion. Plus, if you play Tetris and move a lot of cocaine (or even just the cocaine part) this shirt is super appropriate.
I like the combination the block’iness of the text with the actual Tetris blocks too. It looks cool.
If you wanna pick up the shirt it’ll cost you $24.95 at their store. The design appears to be printed on American Apparel.
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.
I never really had any hockey affiliation growing up, but…since I now live in Philadelphia, I figured it’s only fitting for me to support the Flyers. I guess it was fate, then, when I got this email from Andrew letting me know about atslopes new “Fly” t-shirt.
The shirt is essentially the Philadelphia Flyers logo manipulated to spell out fly above the orange target (did that need explaining?). It spices up the logo a bit, and I dig it. If you share my enthusiasm, you can head over to the atslopes store and buy it for $20.00 printed on American Apparel.
So…this shirt is amazing. If you don’t know, this is based on a (famous?) picture of Nixon and Elvis shaking hands (see the original below), only with Nixon replaced with Darth Vader. Obviously, given how Nixon’s presidency turned out, the substitution is pretty hilarious. I like that it works on two levels–first, it’s funny for people who don’t know the original picture because it’s, well, Elvis and Darth Vader shaking hands. But for those who do know the picture, it’s even more humorous, as well as pretty dang political (if you want it to be).
I think this is one of my favorite Headline Shirts designs (and I like a lot of their shirts, so that actually means something). If you want this sweetness on your chest, you can buy it for $20.00 on American Apparel at their store. I also think the coupon I had for them is still working if you wanna check that out. I hope you enjoyed! Oh, read their product descriptions while you’re at the site–they’re often hilarious, and you’re missing out if you skip them.
I have to be honest, growing up I was totally a Playstation 1 kid (and then XBox, and then no video games), but…that doesn’t mean I can’t dig this new shirt from ReThink Clothing. It’s a simple shirt–just a one color rendering of a Nintendo cartridge. I think it looks great though. It’s kinda nerdy, but not weird nerdy (sorry if that offends! I mean it in the most loving way).
If you want to show your love for Nintendo, you can snag this design for $16.99 at ReThink Clothing. It’s printed on American Apparel blanks (score!).
P.S. My roommates and I have a N64 hooked up to the TV in our basement, so Nintendo has finally become a part of my life.
