Threadless Summer Heatwave Sale + HEARTLESS
Posted June 1, 2009on:
The Summer Heatwave Sale is now in full swing over at Threadless! Who doesn’t love a good sale? We all know that Threadless throws the best ones. There are many great tees as low as $5, so you can get a handful without feeling too guilty! Along with the sale, there are some wonderful new releases this week. Today, I will be discussing “HEARTLESS” by Juan Carlos Bueno aka Ounom.
If you know anything about the Wizard of Oz, then you know that the Scarecrow has no brain, the Tin Man has no heart, and the Lion lacks courage. The Wizard of Oz was no thriller movie, but “HEARTLESS” sure is! In this design, the Tin Man, backed by his whole crew including the Scarecrow, the Lion, and Dorothy and her little dog Toto, are heisting an ambulance to get him the heart that he needs. If you’re going to get a heart, might as well go down in history to get it, right?
The placement on this design is great, as well as the composition. I love that the Scarecrow and the Lion are chilling in the backseat with their huge firearms, while Dorothy is getting to drive off once the task is complete. And Toto… Well, Toto is just there for the ride. There are so many little details in this design, including a Wicked Witch decal on the car and a spiked collar on Toto. I also love how Ounom left out the details in the medics’ faces. It doesn’t matter who they are. It only matters that they have something that is coveted by the Tin Man.
You can see the original submission of “HEARTLESS” with a neat intro here. Be sure to add in some $5 and $10 tees to your cart if you make purchases this week to get the best bang for your buck!
$18 at Threadless, available in Guys XS-3XL and Girly XS-2XL
