07/14/2014 Top Pick – Daily Shirt Designs

Hey guys!! Sorry for the long hiatus, but I am back from vacation and ready to share some awesome shirt designs!

7/14/14 Top Pick; Hot Wheels to the Future

“When this baby hits 88mph… you’re gonna see some serious shit.”

star Concept – Wonderful mash-up of the Hot Wheels toy cars with the Delorean from Back to the Future.

star Composition – I really enjoy the combination of the well rendered vehicle with the altered Hot Wheels logo. The motion conveyed by the shape of the banner with flames describes the speed of this infamous time traveling machine.

Thank You Victorsbeard

7/14/14 Top Pick; Revenge is Coming

star Texture – Wonderful hatching used to articulate the wiry wolf fur. The short thin strokes also create nice complexity in the design.

star Color – The different shades of gray nicely describe the shape of the wolf head. The textures also create wonderful variations of color by using different stroke lengths.

Thank You Dark Choocoolat

7/14/14 Top Pick; The Racoonateer

star Color – I really enjoy the contrast and transition of the warm oranges and yellows in the bottom to the cool blues and grays in the top of the design.

star Composition – The design is tilted on its vertical axis creating wonderful dynamic excitement. The swipe like stokes help exaggerate the tilt and create action.

05/29/14 Top Pick; Kitty The Fool

starComical – Interesting mash-up of the big, tough Mr. T as the cute bubbly Hello Kitty. Comical play on words.

starExecution – Nice clean rounded lines and bold block colors that represent the Hello Kitty aesthetic.

05/29/14 Top Pick; Marshmallow Terror

starComposition – The Stay Puft Marshmallow man towers over the silhouette of the little heroes dominating the design.

starColor scheme – Wonderful bold colors and very nice use of half tones.

starExecution – Effectively looks like a comic book cover. Super interesting, I would enjoy reading this comic. I also really enjoy  the building. It is nicely outlined and created out of the negative space.

starTypography – Type looks great! The various fonts look great together. I really like the lower right curved block of text.

ript_back-to-the-firehous_1401340428_full

05/29/14 Top Pick; Back to the Firehouse

starColor Scheme –  I really enjoy the combination of the warm orange-brown with the cool gray-blue. The colors work together nicely and offer the contrast of both warmth and cool. I also really enjoy the yellow glow of the Ecto Trap.

starTexture – Wonderful stippling texture of the background and foreground ecto glow. The nice deep wrinkles in the jumpsuits are descriptive and also add wonderful texture.

starComposition – I really enjoy the angle in which the scene is set. It keeps the design dynamic and also nicely showcases the Ecto-1 vehicle and the three men.

starExecution – Nicely resembles the Back to the Future poster. All three men are easily recognizable as Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis.

05/29/14 Top Pick; Princess

star Color Scheme – Wonderful shades of gray with a pop of bright red. I really enjoy the washy light gray background giving the design a sense of aerial perspective.

starTexture – I love the white wild wiry lines in the foreground that suggest tall grass. The light gray water-color splash within the moon are amazing.

starContrast – Wonderful play with positive and negative space.

05/29/14 Top Pick; Greyjoy’s Hot Dogs

star Comical – While dark and sad, the design has its own comical charm.

starExecution – Design looks similar to the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs design. Simple clean design that almost requires a second look to catch the message.

popuptee_avengers-of-shield_1398737695.full

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; Avengers of Shield

“Earth’s mightiest heroes”. The design is a nice circular badge-like composition, segmented with a character in each compartment. Together, they form the shield. Each hero is nicely rendered using positive and negative space. The small white details make them pop and give each hero their identity while giving the design complexity.

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; Great Scott!

“There’s that word again. “Heavy.” Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth’s gravitational pull?” A deliciously clever mash-up of Back to the Future and Scott Pilgrim! Scott Pilgrim is portrayed here by Marty McFly as he performs his “Go, Johnny  Go!” scene from the end of Back to the Future. Wonderful line and color render of the figure. I enjoy the typography treatment of the letter forms especially the thunderbolt T’s. The large white letters nicely balance the colorful figure underneath.

shirtpunch_escape_1398744834.full

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; ESCAPE

When the president or his family is trapped in a major U.S. city surrounded by savages, who are you gonna call? It’s gotta be Kurt Russells’s one-eyed, warrior persona “Snake”! Wonderfully distressed, this figure is rough and ready to rumble. I very much enjoy the unnecessary, but much appreciated detail to the figure’s hair. The design’s bottom is very nice balanced to the top. Although they are similar, I enjoy that they are not entirely identical.

03/26/14 Top 3 Pick; Back to the Future Past

Looks like Logan is about to head back in time to save us all, 88 mph style! I think it’s safe to say the future is in worse shape than the Earth’s gravitational pull – heavy! Don’t pass off on this shirt. Offered in tahiti blue, charchoal, and silver I enjoy the blue option most. Visually, I enjoy the warm tones againt the cool blues. Pleasant color block shapes and bold shading in a wonderful bubble composition. Interesting selection of the artist to protray Wolverine as the comic book version, rather than the live-action Hugh Jackman. This decision lends beautifully to positioning the figure in a similar pose to Marty with his hands on his head looking down at the time.

Thank You Strongstuff

03/26/14 Top 3 Pick; Another Titan in The Wall

“All in all we’re just another brick in Wall Rose“. Well, maybe that’s not the exact lyric but it fits this clever design! Something tells me these Titans wouldn’t care too much for pudding but would certainly eat their share of meat (human that is). Awesome white shirt design! While not very common, the design does a nice job of using the white background. It looks clean with thin delicate lines to represent the bricks of the wall. The warm flesh tones in contrast, appear to peak from the center. The wrinkles on the skinless Titan creates a different texture against the flat white. The use of simple perspective gives the effect that there is a Titan in the wall, behind the bricks and ready to break out from the shirt.

03/26/14 Top 3 Pick; The Shindig Dress

Shiny! Even nerdy girls can dream, right? Kaylee is a gearhead at heart but that won’t stop her from playing the part! The figure is easily recognized wearing her  jumpsuit and looks ready to play dress-up. The pink dress is wonderfully detailed with many folds and creases. The figure stands in a minimal background, although enough information is given to provide reference. This nicely keeps the focal point on the figure and the dress. The artist creates visual interest by using the mirror to reveal the front of dress and Kaylee’s face.

Thank You Karen Hallion

03/21/14 Top 3 Pick; Outatime

Awesome black and white Back to the Future Design. The Delorean is wonderfully rendered hovering and tilted, ready to fly off. I enjoy the different typographic treatments throughout the design. They are all different but work together harmoniously. Sensational amount of details and movie references. I love the use of the lightning as the organic element, instead of the usual olive branches, in the emblem.

03/21/14 Top 3 Pick; Captain ‘Murica

Hilarious shirt design! This shirt makes me think of a 4th of July cook out. It makes me proud to be a ‘Murica. Being Hispanic and the first generation born here, this shirt contains everything foreigners think of when they think of American. The comic rendition and collection of fearsome animals is lovely. I especially love the trucker hat on the eagle in the center. The explosion in the back makes the design look epic.

03/21/14 Top 3 Pick; A God beyond the Sea

This ancient water being is sketched out using a wonderful scale of colors and strokes.  I really enjoy the teal tones on the black background. The texture created by the amount of stokes is rich and gives it an underwater feel. The small circles on the tentacles and the bubble contours on the head creates a variety of details and textures.

03/09/14 top 3 pick; Westeros Story

I would feel oh so pretty in this tee. I enjoy the simplicity of this design. Being able to convey a message using simple shapes and limiting the palette to 2 single colors is challenging at times. The design visually conveys The West Side Story cover and the events of the Game of Thrones show. I also happen to look good in Red.

From the choice of weapon to the mode of transportation and wardrobe; the artist did a very nice job of mashing up Marty McFly and Link’s appearances.  A clever title nicely communicated by the design. I also may have selected this shirt since The Back to the Future Trilogy are some of my all time favorite movies!
