05/12/2014 Top 3 Picks – Daily Shirt Designs

theyetee_no-love_1399871516_full

05/12/14 Top 3 Pick; No Love

Some of my favorite shirts are ones with subtle video game references. Something a non-gamer might not look at twice. Mario himself is not present and neither are Princess Peach or Bowser, who is only referenced in name. Interesting tattoo style design. The composition is packed with many components which are all nicely balanced. The X-shaped pipes in the background radiate outward while the light-colored wings in the center help unite and brighten the design. The dagger stabs the center and serves as a focal point to lead the eye to the text wrapped around the banner. I very much enjoy having the text incorporated and wrapped around the design instead of having it float elsewhere. Interesting use of a red turtle shell in the center with the dagger instead of the usual heart.

Thank You BeastPop

05/12/14 Top 3 Pick; Fight Like A Woman

Who said girls can’t be tough? This strong superheroine, portrayed in a lovely rose shade, is ready to put up a good fight. The silhouette  is easily recognizable as Wonder Woman by portraying her arm cuffs, head bead, and long curled locks.  The letter forms in the foreground are large, bold, and extended creating a wide wall of letters which the figure’s arms look ready to break down. I very much enjoy the placement of the pink breast cancer ribbon within the letter forms. It snugly fits on top of the negative areas and is outlined slightly thinner which help prevent it from clashing with the letter.

Thank You Teeminus24

05/12/14 Top 3 Pick; Genesis

SEGA! This detailed info-graphic of this retro console is nicely laid out. The first generation of the Genesis console is on display and not the later models. Fun fact, the Genesis is known as the Mega Drive in some parts of the world! The thin white lines on a dark background have a CAD like quality. The components are nicely organized and unified. The controllers are placed in a yin-yang format. The adapter and cables both are laid in a tall rectangular shape around the wide rectangular game cartridge. I enjoy the little labels and arrows pointed to various parts adding different layers of information. This shirt makes me want to bust out Sonic & Knuckles, Streets of Rage 2, and all the other 16-bit classics!

Thank You Melee Ninja

04/16/14 Top 3 Pick; The Chewsade

Hilarious mash-up of Indiana Jones and Star Wars. Han and Chewie are portraying Indiana and his father, Henry Jones. Something tells me Sean Connery would not be amused to be portrayed as the hairy wookie! Lots of interesting textures. Wookie fur flying in the wind. Scruffy Han in a fedora. Descriptive rough and distressed texture on the vehicle and side cart. I enjoy the brown and green color palette.

Thank You Leon Ryan

Elsa the Riveter! An inspiring figure for young women to embrace who they are and let go of trying to be someone else. This strong female character is gorgeously rendered. I enjoy her light smooth skin and detailed garment. The delicate snowflakes and swirls make an interesting background.

04/16/14 Top 3 Pick; The Planet of The Kong

Looks like the Mushroom Kingdom fell to a mushroom cloud. I wonder if Mario got a kiss with Dixie? The barrels are a nice call back to the original Donkey Kong arcade game which originally pit these two foes against each other. This design portrays an interesting scene with Donkey Kong dominating the composition. Mario in a kneeling down pose shows his emotions without showing facial features.
