I was glad to see this Crowned Crows shirt go into reprint on Design by Humans. I think this design is awesome. I love simple, two-toned imagery for t shirts!
Allow me to geek out for a second. This shirt kind of reminds me of a excellent fantasy novel, Deadhouse Gates, by Steven Erikson. I’m sure the designer of the shirt, who by the way, has won several DBH design contests, had other inspirations, but I am reminded of the character, Coltaine, the war-leader of a peoples known as the Wickans. He was a total badass war tactician and wore a cape of crow feathers. The Wickans’ souls, at the time of death, could also be carried off by crows and delivered to another body, thereby facilitating a reincarnation of sorts.
Oh my god, I didn’t even realize I could geek out that hard! I am awesome.
Back to business. DBH is running an end of year sale until Jan 09, 2011. Only $12! There are still a lot of mens’ sizes but only M for women.
I friggin love this Kneel Before Zod Shirt! For a while Last Exit to Nowhere only had this available as a print. I’m glad they made the move to turn this into a t shirt! Superman II, was one of my favorite flicks despite some of its problems. I loved the idea of the release of three powerful Kryptonian criminals (Zod, Ursa, and Non) from the Phantom Zone to come wreak havoc on planet earth just as Superman was having a, like, major identity crisis. Kal-El wanted to truly be human, see. So, you know, he just gave up his super powers, grew out his hair into a sweet bowl cut, put on a comfy cardigan, and made sweet, sweet love to his best gal, Lois Lane, in a clear, plastic super bubble bed.
This movie would have been so much better if it had ended with Ursa claiming Lois as her slave-turned-soulmate, while Clark Kent spent the rest of his days going insane from being dogged by a residual energy-ghost of his father (produced by a system glitch in his Krpytonian crystals) telling him how proud he was to be the father of the Last Son of Krypton. Non would be a game-show host, and the movie would fade to credits just like the end of Conan, with Zod sitting atop a throne, thinking about serious, serious business.
This viking shirt reminded me of two buddies of mine whose family hails from Norway. A tall, strong, proud family of athletes, servicemen, and brawlers. And they love to party.
That’s why I love this shirt. It depicts a crusty old viking with bags under his eyes and a tankard of mead in this had. The exhausted, ugly side of a viking’s like. Killing, raping and pillaging takes its toll! Yes, that’s dark. This shirt, however, is not dark at all. It really is a fun shirt that you can wear to any party or beerfest. Oktoberfest? Don’t feel like wearing lederhosen? Wear a cool t-shirt and show those Germans how the vikings drink beer! Get to it.
I like this abstract Fantasy shirt, featuring a retinue of men ready for a fight! I think it makes for a good shirt for gamers and/or fantasy fans. Anyone who reads fantasy fiction will immediately identify with this shirt. The line of men, preparing for battle is ubiquitous. I like the third guy back who looks like he’s calling out an order or identifying a threat with his sword. Too bad they don’t see the real threat is behind and above them. There is a large image when you click through and you can see the dragon coming in from above the toop’s eyeline.
I like the artwork a lot and the shirt itself is a premium tee with extra soft fabric. A nice shirt all-around!
This is a great depiction of a woman’s revenge shirt, pulled straight out of a 70′s B movie, a la movies like Thriller – A Cruel Picture, or I Spit on your Grave. I happened upon the latter at my local video rental store at the tender age of fifteen and it changed my life in ways that are all together different than the ways I wish The Warriors could have changed my life had I seen that as a youth.
Back to the shirt at hand…
The revenge motive is a powerful human emotion. And the thought of a lady blasting people in the face with a tommy gun makes me feel so emotional! I’m not sure why she needs a whip since she already has a machine gun, but since she’s only wearing daisy duke cutoff shorts and is barefoot, I think it probably makes sense to have the whip.
Designed by GritFX using the Zazzle storefront, it’s great for guys or girls shirts and comes in a few colors. Black would, of course, be my suggestion but I also like the “burnout” tee for the ladies. You can chose whichever shirt you like best in the zazzle store.
It spoofs the “Knowing is Half the Battle” catch phrase from the old school G.I. Joe cartoon public service announcements.
On this shirt we learn that the other half of the battle is won with LASERS. And that’s important, people. You may know everything that you need to know but 50% still gets you a failing grade. You better have some lasers if you want to be winner.
Oh man. TRON. One of the movies that changed my life. This TRON shirt is a representation of the eerie darkness of the original movie. This shirt simply features a “Recognizer” atop the backdrop of the Game Grid. Recognizers had the sole function of capturing conscripts or programs that were found to be doing things not part of the Mater Control Program’s design.
TRON was not only a great movie but was also adapted as an old-school video game. I was all about playing TRON anytime we hit a Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday party. Eff skee ball. TRON was where it was at. That and Joust!
I enjoy the simple symbolism of the Recognizer. To me it is like a flag for Big Brother. An ominous, omni-present threat of discovery of activities not deemed appropriate by a higher authority. Something common in many of the great sci-fi movies.
This Game Controller Shirt is an evil-looking adaptation of the modern day video game controller, turned spider monster. Whether you are an Xbox or PS3 player (but not Wii because those controllers have safety straps…), chances are you’ve experienced the frustration of being dominated by a certain level of a certain game or maybe your “best” friend was mercilessly kicking your ass at Madden ’11 every week leading up to the first regular season NFL game. Whatever itwas, we’ve all thrown thrown our game controller (or at the very least really thought about it and really come close to doing it).
Well, throwers beware. Especially those still gaming on CRT screens. This could be the repercussions of losing your temper like an over-emotional teenager. You get spider controllers. Nay, zombie spider controllers.
So far, we’re going to start with these Area Code Shirts, specific to the San Francisco Bay Area: Oakland, San Jose, East Bay, etc… Western Front has a great Cafe Press store, repping Bay Area shirts. There’s a lot of pride in the Bay Area. Pride in our sports teams, music scene, festivals, international diversity, and all the natural resources at our fingertips (hiking, skiing, mountain biking, surfing, etc…).
While the overall Bay Area shares much in common, there is enough specialized interest to create smaller sub-identities, often broken down by area code. Of course Ludacris’ famous song ‘Area Codes’ helped greatly to canonize the use of area codes as a descriptor of local culture. Where do you live? I, myself, just moved from The 415 to The 510. Where do you live?
