04/23/2015 Top Picks – Daily Shirt Designs

WOW! It has been forever since my last post! To all my avid followers, I am sorry for the hiatus. My professional life has changed in the last few months. I am now a Graphic Designer for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts! Which has been awesome…

I still check out the different daily tee shirt sites regularly, but I haven’t had time to share. I hope to be able to make time going forward and share my favorite designs!

01/21/2015 Top Picks; Daily Shirt Designs

aplentee_dark-city_1421838683.full

1/21/15 Top Pick; Dark City

snowflake Composition – Wonderful play with positive and negative space. Like most of Kharmazero’s designs, it is composed of simple dark or negative space against a wash of exciting color as the positive space. I love that this designer is not afraid of stark contrast and he utilizes it wonderfully.

snowflake Color – The contrasting light and dark colors nicely develop the design. The radiating reds, yellows, and oranges create an attractive field for the dark city landscape.

Thank You Kharmazero

Buy This Shirt! Dark City

1/21/15 Top Pick; Never Say Die

snowflake Lines & Forms – What a beauty! This designer’s female figures are breathtakingly gorgeous with an easily recognizable style. I love the thick wavy strips of hair. His typical big eyed beauties never fail to impress. I absolutely love the thick outlines and waving banners giving his designs a tattoo style appearance. As a part-time body piercer at a tattoo shop, I encounter this style on a regular basis. His lines, drawings, and sketches, which he frequently shares on Facebook, are just a beautiful!

snowflake Color – The wonderful shading technique nicely develops the forms and thus very little color is necessary.

Thank You Tim Shumate

08/26/14 Top Pick; I Choose Fire &  I Choose Water

star Composition – Wonderful, intricately adorned frames. I really enjoy how the frame surrounds the evolution of characters, glorifying them. The Pokeball nicely brings the eye down to the banner creating a wonderful oval shape.

star Lines and Forms –  The tattoo style forms are very nicely rendered with a heavy outline.

Thank You jmlfreeman

06/05/2014 Top Picks – Daily Shirt Designs

Sorry folks! I didn’t like any shirts yesterday. But today is a new day! Here are my Top Picks:

zebratees_hold-me-thrill-me_1401927497.full

06/04/14 Top Pick; Hold Me Thrill Me

starComposition – Great bold block design. Their strong embrace is centered within the block created by the heavy text. The diagonal rain lines nicely break the square to create a larger square giving the design dimension.

starColor – Although the design is in black and white, the variety of lines give it color. Catwoman’s dark suit and black background is balanced nicely with  Batman’s suit and the heavy text.

Thank You Weekly Shirts

06/04/14 Top Pick; Infinite Who

starComposition – Nicely balanced triangular-shaped design. The text sits nicely on the pyramid’s base in a tattoo style banner.

starColor – I really enjoy the shades of blue used. The blues look great with the light cool cream color. I really enjoy the light bright blue highlights making the design glow.

starTypography – The type is probably the reason why I like this shirt so much. I really enjoy how the word “Who” was created. The Doctor Who components are expertly placed in the negative spaces to create the letters forms. I also really enjoy the tattoo style script in the banner.

Thank You Victorsbeard
