07/21/14 Top Pick; Hound’s Red Ale

“You lived your life for the king. You gonna die for some chickens?”

“Someone is.” What a bad ass quote for a bad ass Hound!

07/21/14 Top Pick; The Incredible Imp

“Perhaps you should speak to me more softly then. Monsters are dangerous and just now kings are dying like flies. ”

The Man of Steel substitutes a man made out of steel.

06/23/14 Top Pick; Spinner of Spells

“The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her. But… before the sun sets on her 16th birthday, she shall prick her finger, on the spindle of a spinning wheel – AND DIE!”

star Composition – I really enjoy the large dragon image behind the beautiful villain. The heavy purple areas nicely balance Maleficent’s figure.

star Lines and Forms – Great use of positive and negative spaces to render various details within the design.

06/23/14 Top Pick; Wildling Encounter

star Concept – Interesting mash-up of characters.

star Lines and Forms – I really enjoy the cute little anime style render of both characters. I also really enjoy the negative space that details the trees in the background, also creating a nice field of depth.

Thank You TeeTurtle

woot_gamma-rays_1403500576_full

06/23/14 Top Pick; Gamma Rays

star Concept – Interesting design which visually portrays the smaller Bruce figure trapped within the larger Hulk figure.

star Color – I really enjoy the limited amount of color use to portray the infamous Hulk. The negative space figure within needs no introduction.

star Lines and Forms – The long thin refracted hazy lines are a great way of visually showing the rays. They nicely delineate the Incredible Hulk.

Thank You Steven Lefcourt

06/23/13 Top Pick; Watch the World Burn

star Composition – Wonderful compositions on the front and back of the shirt! The front has a great sense of dimension. Joker seem to pop out of the background. The back of the shirt in beautifully intricate and balanced and nicely relates to the front of the shirt.

star Lines and Forms – Wonderful amount of line work. Delicate and complex, the devil is in the details ;). Joker’s long grin is jaw dropping.

star Typography – If I didn’t follow this awesome artist of Facebook, I wouldn’t have seen her hand drawn sketches. Her letter forms look this good in her sketches!

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.

Thank You Alecxps

teefury_great-scott_1398744899.full

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.

Thank You Coinbox Tees

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.

Thank You CS3INK

woot_vintage-trooper_1395551574.full

03/23/14 Top 3 Pick; Vintage Trooper

Emperor Palpatine wants you! Come join the Galactic Empire. This cleverly worded porpagada style design is retro and lovley. The Tie fighters in the background are a delightful touch. The skintones on the cream background with a hint of blue looks clean and light.  I enjoy the curvy caligraphy style font and the figure in a seductive pose luring the male audience. The juxtaposition of the lovely female figure with the storm trooper helmet is comical.

03/23/14 Top 3 Pick; Warning: Explosive Anger

Large warning sign alerting not to make this person ANGRY. This design has an incredibly, explosive composition. The large rays show movement and create a nice debry halo effect around the muscular figure. The visual elements are justly contained within the triangle warning sign and on a bright green shirt.

Thank You Lee Byway

03/23/14 Top 3 Pick; Alice

The somber color scheme portrays this imaginative daydream as grim. The timeless clocks and trees have a Dali quality to them. The organic elements in the design, like the thorny vines and gaunt limbs on the trees, are enthralling and pull Alice and the viewer towards the center and through the looking glass into Wonderland.

Thank You Nados
