Loving This Tee

Archive for February 2010

This post is going to be short and sweet because the visuals will speak for themselves.

8-Bit Zombie has just recently released four new hats, two of which are collaborations with The Printed Mind! There are also hats by Godmachine and Shantz. These hats are super sexy and only a limited number have been printed, so make sure you don’t wait around to pick them up. I assure you that they’ll turn some heads and make your friends jealous!

TPM-exclusive colorways:

These hats are all going for $15, so what are you waiting for? Head over to the 8-Bit Zombie and The Printed Mind today to pick up your favorites!

Bunker Designs is a company based in Costa Rica that is entering into the world of t-shirt competition sites. Because it is pre-launching tomorrow (February 28), I’d like to welcome Bunker Designs to the t-shirt community with a review of one of its very first tees! The pre-launch designs are not competition winners, but have been illustrated by one of the staff members, Tony Aguero. You may be familiar with this name, as Tony has printed with many t-shirt sites including Threadless, Teefury, and Design by Humans. Bunker Designs hopes to be seen as more of a community than just an online store, and there will be many ways for community members to participate with the addition of features like blogs and interviews.

Crime Syndicate” is one of the four fresh tees designed by Tony Aguero from Bunker Designs, and it is my favorite in this initial line. The design features a conspicuous man with a bunch of different weapons. At first I didn’t realize this, but the word “mob” appears in the design in large letters. Also, at the bottom of the design, it defines this as “An organized gang of criminals; a crime syndicate.” I personally think that this is a lovely addition to the piece.

I don’t recall owning anything platypus-related since 3rd grade, when I got a platypus Beanie Baby. My mom and I went all over the place looking for that one. Well, “Patti” the platypus has been stored away in a plastic bin for many years now, and it’s time to move on to more mature platypus products. Today’s featured tee at 5quidink is MJ’s “Professor Von Platypus,” and it definitely fits the bill as a platypus item for a grown-up audience. I mean, just look at how classy this mammal is with his monocle and mustache.

Like other 5quidink shirts, this tee will only be offered for 24 hours. So head over to 5quidink to purchase this lovely purple platypus shirt for $12.

Do you like Wotto? If you do, then my advice to you is to go check out the newest Tilteed tee! This fun piece is titled “The Advice Tee” and it is this month’s contest winner. Why is it called “The Advice Tee,” you ask? Just take a closer look at this design and you will see a bunch of little pieces of advice that you’ve probably heard multiple times over the years. As with many of Wotto’s other works, this design features his signature doodling style. I especially love this illustration because it’s quite colorful. I really enjoy the addition of colored shapes in the background, and the color combination makes this a t-shirt that I can see myself wearing all the time.

You can pick up Wotto’s “The Advice Tee” at Tilteed for $12 (it’ll go up to $18 after the pre-order period), and save $2 by using the code “LovingThisTee” during checkout. And if you’re planning on purchasing two or more tees during your visit, you can use the code “FEB50” to take $4 off each shirt*.

Hurry and pick up some LadyUmbrella today because this sale will only last for 3.3 days! As always, shipping is free worldwide!

I haven’t seen a design at Shirt.Woot that I just had to have in a long, long time. When I saw “Flying” by ilovedoodle late last night, I immediately hit the “I want one!” button. Being a huge fan of ilovedoodle, I’ve been waiting to see this print for some time now, and I’m glad that it finally happened!

Reasons why I think that this tee is awesome:

  1. I love ilovedoodle.
  2. I like happy characters and the whale is smiling like it’s having the best day of its entire life.
  3. Penguins are awesome, especially Emperor penguins.
  4. Turtles are also cool because I automatically think about Squirt from Finding Nemo. If you don’t know who he is, Google him. He’s adorable.
  5. Penguins are finally “flying” in this illustration. There is hope for these flightless birds, after all!
  6. I only have about 3 heather grey tees in my entire t-shirt collection. Very sad.

Go pick up a copy of “Flying” at Shirt.Woot before time runs out! It’s only $10 and you can get free shipping if you go with the slower option. I can’t wait to receive mine!

Are you someone who loves doodling on whiteboards? What if I told you that you can buy a tee that works like a whiteboard, and that you can write whatever you want with a marker and have it all wash off when you’re done wearing it for the day? Check out Eraser Tees, your one-stop shop for erasable message shirts!

I can’t imagine how much fun I could have with these tees.  The possibilities are endless! Here are some of my personal favorites:

There’s a grand opening sale going on now at Eraser Tees, so you can pick up these fun t-shirts for only $14.95 a pop. You can also use the coupon “LOVINGTHISTEE” to take an additional 15% off! Take a look around the site to see some other fun designs. Which are your favorites?

So every time that a rabbit’s speed is compared to a turtle’s, the comparison is made on land. Obviously, rabbits are faster than turtles if they’re both moving at their top speeds on terrain. But what if we take this race to the water? ChildMirror shows us just how much bunnies struggle with swimming in the latest Tilteed Limited tee! “Race” is a hilarious piece depicting a race where a lone turtle is almost to the finish line and not breaking a sweat, while a trail of of bunnies attempts to catch up. That will teach these fuzzy creatures to stop bragging about their agility!

More detailed pictures:

This design will slightly wrap around the tee, a first for Tilteed prints. You can purchase “Race” for $12 until Monday at noon Pacific Time before a new shirt goes up. Don’t forget to use the coupon “LovingThisTee” to take $2 off. But wait, that’s not all! if you’re planning on purchasing two or more tees, use the code “FEB50” to take $4 off each shirt*. That’s $8 a shirt if you’re buying two copies of the Tilteed Limited t-shirt!

Last week, I received a sweet little package from Rick at OMUNKY. Its contents? The latest OMUNKY design, “Tiger Turmoil” plus some stickers! Needless to say, I was ecstatic to start off the Year of the Tiger with a hilarious tiger tee. I may have already said it in some earlier post, but let me reiterate that I’m a huge fan of wild cats. Huge fan!

I haven’t gotten the chance to wear this shirt out and about yet, but I already got some compliments when I first took it out of the package. I did, however, wash it and now it is ready to be reviewed here at Loving This Tee. Read the rest of this entry »

Do you recall drawing the “S” thing back in your younger years? I just remember drawing them non-stop back in middle school. Big ones, little ones, backwards ones, 3-D ones, you name it! Did I know what I was doodling? Nope! I just thought that it looked cool.

Sometime last week, I joined a Facebook fan page dedicated to this “S” thing (if you want to be a fan, it’s called That “S” thing we all drew in elementary school). Little did I know that there would be a t-shirt with this blast from the past. The S Thing site just launched, and you can purchase this tee for only $10! I love that it includes other little doodles along with these “S” things.

Head on over to The S Thing to pick up your copy of the tee today! These shirts are printed on Tultex and will only be available for a limited time. I think that I’ll have to snatch one up. It makes me miss my childhood!
