Zombie Laboratories t-shirt by RobotRobotRobot

 

Gotta love Zombies!

Any design that simply tells you to ‘remember your zombie training’, is definitely worth a look.  I like more or less everything about this:

The almost ‘cute’ figures on the shirt, the geometric shapes (that wins me over straight away).  the excellent use of negative space to make the shadows (and blending in to the defined edges on the floor).

The background colour is also a great choice to showcase the design, as it again softens the whole thing – making the caption even funnier, as you just think you’re looking at some regular infographic.

Love it!

Olive of Alderaan – StarWars T-Shirt by MonkeySocks

Olive of Alderaan - T-shirt by MonkeySocks

Just when you thought StarWars was done to death, something genuinely surprising pops up. This great illustration by MonkeySocks, meticulously true to the Popeye style, shows that there’s still plenty of scope for mashing up characters in the StarWars setting.

Thought even went into the character names, ‘Vitamin B2-A2 the little ‘iron’ robot‘.

Great for kids – small or large!

Ninjutsu! Art 21: walk on water! – t-shirt by Japu

Ninjutsu! Art 21: walk on water! - T-Shirt by Japu
Ninjutsu! Art 21: walk on water! - T-Shirt by Japu

When the colour of a shirt meets the concept of the design, and it works this well you have to just sit back and look at it.  This fantastic idea, concept and style by Japu leads you in with the boots, treading oh so lightly on the water’s surface.  You then realise that this is someone on a mission, and they’re looking at ‘you’.

It’s cool and cute at the same time (like so many of Japu’s designs).  Love it!

Pink Dandelion t-shirt by Pip Gerard

Pink Dandelion t-shirt by Pip Gerard

It’s a pink dandelion.  What else do you want me to say?

OK – it’s a pink dandelion whose petals have been lovingly painted in watercolour by Pip Gerard, and digitally ‘penned’ onto the canvas that is this t-shirt.  It’s this knowledge that makes you put your finger on why you found it interesting, because it’s not only a great use of colour, shapes and an overall patterned style.  It’s got some subtle depth that keeps you staring.

This design could be just at home printed onto fabric you’d make great cushions out of, or wallpaper you’d put on a feature wall in your walk-in robe (ideas Pip?); or you could simply choose to wear it and love it that way.

Nerd gets hurt – Geek Skateboard t-shirt by YAWN

Nerd gets Hurt - t-shirt by YAWN
Nerd gets Hurt - t-shirt by YAWN

Aw – this nerd really thought he could cut it. This cautionary tale just goes to show that if you try and play the big boys’ game you might get hurt..

This great illustration from YAWN shows a great use of perspective and angles to get the point across.  Whether you’re the sort of person who’d stand and laugh at the nerd, or (like me), you’re more likely to be the one on the deck with the broken glasses – this is a great and unique design to wear with pride.

Turn to the Darth Side : An original Star Wars T-shirt

Darth Star - Star Wars T-Shirt by Naf4d
Darth Star - Star Wars T-Shirt by Naf4d

Star Wars t-shirts are everywhere! - Hey I’ve even had a go myself (and I may not be done yet).

There’s just something unique about it that moved a couple of generations of people.  There’s lots of innovative designs out there, but I’m really loving this one by Naf4d, as the attention to detail and the process involved illustrates it was something of a labour of love.

“I drew the Death Star then started the long process of resizing and placing each ‘star’ – It took ages to do and the computer I used to do it (8-core Mac Pro with 14 gig of Ram) was pushed to the max and even that beast struggled towards the end!”

I’m certainly not going to count how many stars are on this design!  Another thing I like is that the head looks completely different from far away and close up:

William Shakespeare - the inspiration for Darth Vader?
William Shakespeare - the inspiration for Darth Vader?

From a distance you could be forgiven for thinking it’s a portrait of William Shakespeare (what? just me?).

At closer quarters, the design almost looks like a huge collection of empire bling, with hundreds of death star-shaped jewels adorning the dark lord’s helmet.

Maybe the bejewelled helmet comes out on special occasions…

Somewhere over the rainbow – T-Shirt by Steve Harvey

Somewhere over the rainbow, someone's getting wet by Steve Harvey

It took a moment to work out what this was.

I think if I were standing under the end of a rainbow I’d be this this freaked out too.  Not only would you be a bit peeved that there’s no pot of gold, but you’ve also ruined your best outfit.  Indigo’s a real pain to get out!

A great imaginitive design by Steve Harvey.

Saucy Jack – Ripper ‘Killbot’ T-Shirt by Simon Sherry

Saucy Jack - T-Shirt by simon Sherry

Saucy Jack – you’re a naughty one…

David St Hubbins and Derek Smalls from Spinal Tap never managed to get the musical version of Jack the Ripper’s life off the ground, so it was left to Simon Sherry to concoct a mashed up super-vector creation of the lead character.

Simon’s a master at ‘blades’ and Jack’s got plenty.  He is a victorian gentleman of course so the cup of tea and handlebar moustache is very much the go.

Surfer Girl – T-Shirt by Ross Robinson

Surfer Girl by Ross Robinson
Surfer Girl by Ross Robinson

How to evoke a feeling?

Ross Robinson took a step back here and combined a girl, her surfboard, a pose, the early morning birds, and some great design techniques to bring home the feeling of great anticipation.

The colours and the circle frame make you think of the rising (or setting) sun, and lift you off (in a relaxing way) to the beach.

If you’re more into the water than the sand, there’s a variation you might prefer.

Who’s the Daddy? Alien T-Shirt by RubyRed

Whos the daddy - by Rubyred
Who's the daddy - by Rubyred

I’m a real fan of the ‘Alien’ movies, and this is just an inspired design by the fantastic RubyRed on Redbubble.

Not only is the halftone style of the ultrasound image just perfectly crisp, the little critter almost looks cute in there!

Add all the technical information and you’re looking at a bit of a classic.

If you’re a fan of this then you’ll be knocked out by RubyRed’s 2010 calendar.
