So many awesome shirt, so little time. I looked through the different sites today and surprisingly found many designs I liked. I was working on a commissioned piece pretty heavily today for a quick turn around. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time to blog today. But I will at least share my favs.

06/24/2014 Top Picks – Daily Shirt Designs


06/24/14 Top Pick; Beyond the Sea

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waitin’ for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin’

star Composition –  Great sense of being submerged due to the contained large rectangular composition. The elongated design allows for both details above and under water.

star Lines and Forms – Wonderful amount of simplified details. I really enjoy all the well-formed shapes within the design, incorporating both positive and negative space.

06/08/2014 Top Pick – Daily Shirt Designs


06/08/14 Top Pick; I ‘ll Protect You

starColor – The color in the design really helps stabilize and adds visual interest. Since the Big Daddy looks visually heavy in black, the brighter colors on the left side help balance his body on the right.

starTexture – I really enjoy the texture in this design. The chalk pastel style gives it rich complexity. The feathered lines look quick and distressed which contrasts nicely with the bright looks.

starComposition – The large-scale of the Big Daddy figure dominates the design. Although the Little Sister is much smaller, the composition is stabilized by the Big Daddy’s pose. He is leaning over towards her, creating a continuous, implied arch line from his headgear to her little form and bright dress.

Thank You Logan Feliciano

06/08/14 Top Pick; Believe

This wise little guy looks like he is radiating the force.

starComposition – Wonderful haloing effect around a well-rendered Yoda. The position of his upward-lifting head suggests he is calm and at peace. The top radiation pattern is nicely balanced with the smaller bottom radiating pattern.

starLines – I really enjoy the radiating lines created by the thin triangle and circle patterns. The pattern is wonderfully geometric and creates a great complex background.

03/25/2014 Top 3 Picks- Daily Shirt Designs


03/25/14 Top 3 Pick; Come On, Mr. Bubbles!

Would you kindly check out this design? This scene depicts a rare moment of tenderness in Rapture between a Big Daddy and his Little Sister. Don’t get between this odd couple or you’ll be swimming with the fishes, literally! The nice elongated design portrays deep submersion. Simple gradation of teal tones on a dark blue background gives it an underwater feel. I enjoy the touch of yellow in the center of the design. The yellow leads the eye straight to the center first, then around and back to the center. The characters are skillfully shaped out of the negative space.

Thank You filiskun

03/25/14 Top 3 Pick; Meth City

Wonderful mash up of two series known for their anti-heroes. The black and white composition of the design conveys a theme of right and wrong which is prevalent in both franchises. The wonderful dynamic angle in the composition makes the figures appear larger than life. The grouping of the figures set in formation shows hierarchy. The typographic treatment is on point, conveying the dark graphic novel style.

03/25/14 Top 3 Pick; B is for Blood Sugar

I guess that sweet tooth finally came back to haunt Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster! If the letter of the day is B, then the number must be 3 because this is in my top 3! Hilarious shirt design. Using simple flat colors, Cookie Monster’s face is rendered in complete horror. His hands up and fingers spread apart convey a sense of terror. The Count’s hands seem to gently wrap around Cookie Monster, caressing him as he sucks his blood.
