06/20/14 Top Pick; Super Freeze Fighter
“Round 1, FIGHT!”
Concept – It would be interesting to see these match-ups since they all have similar powers.
Lines and Forms – All characters are nicely rendered in pixel form. The fighters are cleanly organized in the rounded corner square grid. I enjoy that some characters slightly pop out of their square.
Thank You Ryan Astle

06/20/14 Top Pick; Where the Colossi Are
“Let The Wild Rumpus Start!”
Lines and Forms – Wonderful dark hatched strokes that give this design a similar style to the Where the Wild Things Are.
Concept – Brilliant mash-up! Interesting that Wander and Max both enter a forbidden land and encounter large creatures.
Thank You Louis Wulwick

This shirt is only available for 24 hours, not long at all! This mystical, magical design is absolutely dreamy. The whimsical curls and filigree nicely frame the beautifully detailed faces. I love the way that David Bowie’s face and hair lead or transform into the owl’s body. His spiky, fanned out hair resembles the fanciful spread out wings of the owl. Amazing treatment of the main letter forms in the top right. They’re tall and gracefully twist and wind together filling that area with interest equal to the rest of the design. The scroll which contains the subtext also nicely winds and has a nice torn texture. I also really enjoy that the whole design seems to be in antique whites and browns or in light sepia tones, especially on the brown shirt option.

The Frozen shirts keep on coming with this villainous mash-up! This tiny snow queen dancer floats magically in a snow globe, imprisoned by the ingenious Dr. Victor Fries (aka Mr. Freeze). Is he preserving her like his beloved wife Nora, or perhaps trying to harness her frigid powers for his own nefarious purpose? The cool blues and teals look great for both characters. Both are nicely encased using simple thick and thin white lines to show shape and highlight. Something tells me this villain won’t just “let it go” if you know what I mean! Anybody have a Bat signal?

GOJIRA!! GOJIRA!! This Japanese terror this way comes! Wonderful, strong design with large bold block shapes. I very much enjoy the simple but strong background. The round red circle seems to represent Japan. By keeping some areas smooth and crisp while other areas of the circle are distressed it metaphorically represent the destruction of this giant lizard’s path. Godzilla is nicely rendered out of the negative space and the distress adds nice shape and texture.
Thank You Zerobriant
