I think this design is pretty snazzy, but man, the methodology behind the design is even cooler. Ryan, the owner, just threw a bunch of legos on the screen and then burned the image to make the design. I’ll let him describe:
Believe it or not, this T-shirt is made using legos. I randomly threw a hand full of Lego’s on the screen and burned the image. If you look closely, you can even see little Lego men (most don’t have heads…weird…). I’ve screened them in an 80’s fade that we all know and love (hot pink to yellow to green). You can enjoy it on a white, mint green, or light blue American Apparel shirt. Limited quantities for this first batch.
I think that’s damn cool. Go snag it at the Design Proper store. He prints on American Apparel.
Here are some pictures from the design process for your extra viewing pleasure:
I never have anything bad to say about Fullbleed’s releases, so I just decided to go through all the new releases, all of which are printed on American Apparel 50/50 blend shirts, and pick out my favorite, which is…Mind the Gap. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I really like Fullbleed’s style. Not only do they look cool, but they just have the feeling that there’s a much deeper intellectual/philosophical meaning behind them. Hopefully that makes sense, but there is a good chance that I’ve miserably failed at trying to convey my opinions on the aforementioned style.
Below is a picture of all of Fullbleed’s new releases:
This shirt garnered a definitive chuckle from me. The text drew me immediately to that Flo Rida song (Oh hot damn, this is my jam–you know it), and obviously juxtaposing Flo Rida with the dude on the shirt makes for a funny image. I think the guy on the shirt also looks like the guy wearing the shirt in an odd way (anyone wanna back me up on that?).
You can grab this on American Apparel for $23.11 at MySoti. You can also pick a different type of blank to make it like $5 cheaper.
Uneetee, who pumps out some consistent quality designs, just sent me an email about their new mystery gift card promotion. It’s pretty cool–basically you buy a mystery gift card for $5. You are then guaranteed to receive at least a $6 gift card (so you can’t lost money!), but you also have a chance to get a $15, $50, or $100 gift card. It’s a pretty cool deal, especially if you’ve been looking to buy a Uneetee shirt, because you can’t help but save money. Go check it out!
I think this shirt effectively describes the theme of my “Quirky T-Shirts” category. If this category had a book cover–this tee would be on it. Usually I’m the one decimating the donut, but in this design, the roles are reversed, thrown up with some retro-esque style, and made into something quite awesome.
I bet you big money that you get some stares if you wear this shirt–a shirt printed on American Apparel which you can grab for $18.00 at Paper Root Clothing.
P.S. Just to reiterate, this is a shirt of a giant donut rampaging through a city and eating people. Wtf mate? (I love it though, incase Paper Root people stop by and see this)
So this is somewhat of a long quote, but here’s the entire mission statement from LiNK, which I think is better in their own words:
LiNK exists so that one day the crisis in North Korea will not. We operate under a mandate that does not allow us to remain silent about the human rights and refugee crisis that is a result of this emergency. We educate, protect, advocate, provide and empower the North Korean people so that one day they will have the opportunity to live in true freedom.
EDUCATE: We share relevant stories of North Korean citizens and refugees through creative media, and we promote the truth about the humanitarian crisis inside and around North Korea to the world.
PROTECT: We protect North Koreans in pursuit of freedom, seeking asylum, and in need of assistance – wherever they can be reached.
ADVOCATE: We advocate on behalf of the North Korean people for human rights and fundamental freedoms. We call upon our leaders to do more because we know they can.
PROVIDE: Within the capacity of our resources and mandate, we offer assistance to North Koreans, NGO’s, governments, and other partners working toward the same mission.
EMPOWER: We empower refugees with resources, assistance and guidance to reach freedom and to build new lives. We also empower citizens of the world to take action and make a difference in their individual lives.
On top of that, their designs are actually really good. It’s a win-win. Check them out at the LiNK store.
Arrested Development is probably my favorite show, despite it’s unfortunate, and in my opinion senseless, cancellation. If you haven’t watched Arrested Development, then you probably have no idea why this shirt is funny, and I apologize. However, if you are an Arrested Development fan and support the Save Our Bluths movement, then you should probably buy this shirt, because it’s awesome. Support your favorite revenge fueled, wall living Korean adoptee. Check it out! Also, check for updated Busted Tees coupons.
P.S. Has anyone heard about an Arrested Development movie, and, if so, is it actually going to happen?
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.
Sticking with yesterday’s theme of music, here’s a sweet shirt from Ubiquity, conveniently for sale at 80′s Purple. I say conveniently because 80′s Purple was also kind enough to offer me a coupon code for 25% off all t-shirts (minus sale ones)–that was pretty nice of them. Just use code troundup to get the discount.
I dig the division of the shirt, with the blank space above and vertical lines below–it looks great. The horn player himself also looks pretty rad. You can pick it up for $22 ($16.5 with the coupon) at 80′s Purple.
P.S. Check out the other Ubiquity shirt I featured awhile back–it’s still just as awesome as it was back then.
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.
