So it looks like Design By Humans is having yet another sale, this time its End of Summer Sale. What does this mean for you? Tons and tons of $15 t-shirts! I don’t know when their next sale will be, so if you have some recent favorites or missed out on the last big sale, now’s your time to buy some shirts.

Here are some of my recent favorites for your viewing pleasure.

Knock Out and Never Tap Out” by zerobriant:

I’m not really a fan of MMA, but this design simply looks great. The bright blue color that I link to fun and general lightheartedness is juxtaposed with the image of an MMA fighter, something that I just wouldn’t normally pair together. I give it my thumbs up!

Leader of the Pack” by againstbound:

If you’ve been following Loving This Tee, then you’ll know that I simply love againstbound’s illustrations. What I love about this shirt is that 1. it’s purple and, 2. I need to take the time to wrap my head around what it all means. I doubt that I will ever jump to a solid conclusion, but that’s why it’s so exciting to see a design like this!

Apres Moi le Deluge” by mj00:

I love everything about this new piece by MJ. I also love the textures she uses in this piece, as it really gives the whole composition more depth and even more aesthetic appeal. If this ship is out for the purpose of whaling, they better think again. I think these whales are going to show them who’s boss.

Type Rider” by mrdavenport:

I’ve been waiting to see this printed for a long time, and now the day has come. It’s a great piece for the summer and for the other seasons when you’re dreaming of summer. Definitely a clever design and just an all-around beautiful piece to look at!

Now that you’ve seen my picks, go and get your favorite designs at Design By Humans today!

I’ve spent more time trying to interpret this piece since the day it went up on Tilteed, but as you can see, I’m still rather unsuccessful. Nonetheless, the lack of a proper interpretation shouldn’t stop you from feasting your eyes on this marvelous piece by zackOlantern called “The Twilight Rider.”

Here’s a closer look at the colorful illustration:

As of this moment, you only have a little over 18 and a half hours left to pick up “The Twilight Rider” at Tilteed! Plus, you know you could always use more eggplant colored t-shirts in your life. It’s $12, and you can save $2 with the code “LovingThisTee.”

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.

Wow, so many new lines have launched this week! Fur Face Boy has just released Series 2 of its collection less than an hour ago. The line contains a lot of colorful and fun pieces, and there is even a tee printed with glow-in-the-dark ink! I’m a sucker for wearing glowing tees, even though the only person who ever sees them in action is me. The FFB tee that has this awesome ability to illuminate in the dark is “FFB Typeface 2.

As I said before, this line features many colorful tees and one of my favorites is “FFB Pattern.” Purple and teal truly is an amazing color combination, and I can’t help but love seeing these two colors together!

My most favorite tee out of this new line is “Bearmaibrick.” This design, inspired by the popular Be@rbrick collectible toys, features the owner’s dog Bear Mai in vinyl toy form. I wouldn’t mind finding one of these in an actual blindbox!

There are a total of 13 new designs, 12 of which are made available in both men’s and women’s sizes. Where did the 13th tee go, you ask? One design was made exclusively for the ladies who love FFB! If you’re curious, you’ll just have to check out the Fur Face Boy shop to see what I’m talking about. Each of these new shirts will cost you $32, and you can also pick up Series 1 tees on sale for $19.99. Shipping is a flat rate of $6 in the U.S.

Diktat6 (Myspace link) is a relatively new shirt company run by Andrew Lawandus that currently operates through Big Cartel. Andrew was kind enough to send me one of the designs in the store called “City of Flames,” which caught my eye right away. I instantly fell in love with the use of purple flames instead of other ordinary colors such as red or light blue. Using the resultant color of the combination of red and blue  achieves a much more stylish fire than what is typically seen. Since purple is a popular color in the clothing industry right now, it’s nice to see a great design putting the color to good use.
