Mathiole and bisparulz take the cake for the coolest monster formed by little monsters! “Ultimate Midnight Monster!” is today’s Shirt of the Day at Design By Humans, and it is a well-deserved win. While the composition is already awesome, the colors are what bring this design to life. Although he’s a gigantic monster, you can’t help but find him lovable. Just look at all those little smiling faces!

It’s been a while since my last product review, but this is the first of several that are going to be posted within the next few weeks. Today’s post is about a tee from Poli Graphic Design called “Power Trio.” If you haven’t guessed it yet, it’s another sweet design by againstbound. His style is so unique and distinct, something that I love.
I haven’t seen too many yellow shirts on the market, so this was a real treat. Printed on a lemon American Apparel tee, this seven-color illustration came out beautifully! Read the rest of this entry »
I really love the new direction that Stheart Clothing (pronounced “start”) has taken. One of my favorites from their collection is a fresh take on their logo called “Geace 2.0.” When I saw this piece, I had a hunch that it was the work of againstbound. After surfing the web a bit, I learned that I was correct in my assumptions. I guess that I’m just drawn to his work, but that’s not a bad thing.
This logo shirt is great in that it exceeds your expectations of logo merchandise. There’s enough going on in the illustration for one to think that there’s a deeper meaning behind the piece. And maybe there is, but looking at it as a logo tee makes it one of the best logo shirt that I’ve ever come across. The colors and the composition work together so well. In short, “Geace 2.0″ is fantastic and I really need this tee for my wardrobe!
I’ve heard of the saying “it’s raining cats and dogs,” but I haven’t heard “it’s raining frogs” before. Bruised Bear gives us another take on the phrase with a tee covered in little green amphibians called “Covered in Frogs.” Luckily, the classy gentleman who’s standing there remembered to bring an umbrella. No frogs are going to land on his head today!
Comfy couch? Check. Big headphones? Check. Some sweet, sweet tunes to write to? Check. Alright, now I’m ready to share my thoughts about the newest OMUNKY product!
“MUNKY-Rhythm” is the latest addition to the OMUNKY line, and it’s now my favorite tee from the shop. I love music and I love a great t-shirt, so “MUNKY-Rhythm” fits the bill perfectly. This design features none other than a monkey listening to some tunes on his swanky new headphones. He looks like he’s really grooving to the beat.
But wait… The headphone jack isn’t even plugged in! Looks like someone’s too busy listening to the music inside his head to even notice. As long as it’s good imaginary music, I won’t judge.
“Yellow Bellied Bastard” is the fantastic new Limited design available at Tilteed. Wotto is definitely the king of doodle tees, and “Yellow Bellied Bastard” does not disappoint. If you loved last year’s bestselling “Guilty Pleasures,” then you’re definitely going to dig this new follow-up design!
Here’s a closer look at the illustration:
As a bonus for purchasing this tee, Tilteed is running a contest in which everyone who buys “Yellow Bellied Bastard” will be entered to win one of Wotto’s original 8″ x 8″ paintings (valued at $100). The winner will get to select one painting from any of the available works from Wotto’s 100 Paintings Project. How incredible is that? This contest blows my mind! And just to give you an example of the paintings, here are a few:
So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Tilteed and pick up “Yellow Bellied Bastard” for just $12 before it disappears into the archive tomorrow afternoon. Make sure to use the coupon code “LovingThisTee” at checkout to save $2 on your order.
So I’m way behind in blogging due to school, but since I have just taken my last exam, this will be the first of many new posts (let’s hope I can keep it up!).
I heard from Ropeadope Design Collective sometime last month and have been meaning to write about them. They have eight designs up for pre-order now that will no longer be sold after May 20th. This first collection is pretty solid, and I’m loving several of the designs. This first release is comprised of illustrations by a.mar.illo, Priscilla Wilson, peachbeach, Wotto, Tang Yau Hoong, againstbound, Hydro 74, and Steven Erdman. From this point on, RDC will release eight new designs every three months. Each shirt is limited to 500 copies or less, and every order comes with a free CD. I don’t know what music is on it, but it sounds neat!
Head on over to Ropeadope Design Collective shop to pick up these and many more great designs for $24 each.
Finally, a shirt with a reference that I understand at Teefury! Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure that LOST is amazing. I just haven’t seen the show so I never know what the tees are all about. Anyways, since I’m pretty obsessed with Lady Gaga and even wrote a final paper about her in one of my psychology courses this semester, I’m going to have to give today’s funny design two thumbs up! “Lady Pugaga” by Lisa Hanawalt is a great combination of pug and Lady Gaga. Just check out the telephone headpiece that this little pup has on! Oh, how I’d love to see Lady Pugaga and Lady Gaga together in real life.
Time for me to quit writing and watch Lady Gaga’s video for “Telephone” for the 1000th time. While I do that, you can purchase “Lady Pugaga” at Teefury for $9 until the clock strikes midnight Eastern Time.
To all the Alice in Wonderland fans out there, you’ll be happy to hear that Design Kins has their Cheshire Cat tribute on sale for only $10! There is no definite end date on this marvelous sale, since it will end when the design is completely sold out.
