“They’re all gonna laugh at you!” This image is just as incredibly shocking as the events of the movie Carrie. This might be the first shirt I’ve ever seen that actually scares me! The design really captures the anger, fear, and pure horror of the moment. The red pools and drips wonderfully delineate the negative space creating the figure of a scorned girl. The artist did a wonderful job of giving the design just the right amount of information to create the image.  The contrast of the bright white teeth and bright blue eyes help reveal her facial expression of pure anger and fury. I absolute love her delicate hands that seem to writhe in pain and direct her power.

Thank You Momech

05/07/2014 Top 3 Pick; Cthulu Class 5 vs. Little Hero

Classic good vs. evil. What an amazingly complex image. The gigantic, Lovecraftian Cthulhu made up of dark negative space with bright gleaming eyes towers over this cityscape made up of thin, long strokes. While the little hero in the bright positive space jets up in the center ready to defeat the monster. I love the texture created by the slanted sketch hatching to show the destruction. It nicely contrasts with the soft billowy look of the clouds above.

Thank You Karmazero

Game over for this little floating spirit. The other little neon buddies, Blinky, Inky and Clyde, hover nearby to lay a dead Pinky to rest. The Little Ecto Trap serves as a nice little open casket. Nice clean lines and solid colors. I enjoy the little expressions on their faces. Each spirit portrays a different emotion: shock, sadness, and reflective. Who knew these little guys could be so expressive? The angles, perspective, and slanted lines on the Etco Trap make the design dynamic.

Happy anniversary Simpsons! It’s The Blinky from the Black Lagoon! Marge looks terrified as the Gill-Man styled Blinky carries her from Lake Springfield. Both Blinky as the monster and Marge as the damsel in distress, are nicely portrayed. In enjoy the distressed texture of the design on the dark green shirt. The simple water ripples around the monster’s legs along with the deep green, completes the design without a need for a background.

No offense intended to the many gorgeous (and I do mean, MANY) Doctor Who designs out there, but it’s refreshing to see a well thought out mash-up that makes sense for both universes. Jack is pondering the Tardis door and the many places and times it may lead. One could just imagine what a hilarious time traveler Jack would make and the unique and gothic spin Burton would put on the concept. The bark texture on the tree is also transferred on to the Tardis, giving it an appearance of being painted on. I very much enjoy the orange background. Its simple use of positive and negative space is wonderful, and very descriptive without attracting too much attention.

Thank You Karen Hallion

Speaking of repeat designs… Frozen sure is popular these days! You’ll find no mash-up here, however. Just an overall gorgeous design that employs solid colors and forms. The artist wonderfully uses simple lines and forms on a medium blue background to illustrate these lovely figures. I especially enjoy the curves and bends of the shape of both figures’ hair. The figures’ facial expressions makes the viewer wonder what these two sisters are chatting about.
