05/19/14 Top 2 Pick; Armored Maiden: The Hunter

Watch out Mother Brain! Samus is back and badder than ever! This hunter definitely knows how to Rock & Roll (wink wink, nudge nudge). Incredible action hero pose. I really enjoy how the composition really holds true to the original Iron Maiden cover. The design has been mostly contained within a circle in order to translate it cleanly into a shirt design. Still, the pose, scene, and fonts are spot on. This armored damsel looks like she really kicked ass during this battle. Standing up, flag in hand, and walking over a mountain of fallen opponents. Wonderful detail placed on the structure and appearance of the armor. I really enjoy the torn, jagged flag and the smoke still bellowing out of the arm cannon. The combination of warm oranges and reds with the cool blues are nicely matched up in similar earth tones harmoniously uniting the color palette.

Thank You NinjaInk

05/16/14 Top 3 Pick; All Work and No Play…

Instead of the infamous “Here’s Johnny!” scene from The Shining, we have a another significant scene depicted straight from the film. Jack Torrance is watching his family outside the hotel with a 1,000-yard stare. You begin to see his descent into madness. I enjoy how Jack Nickolson is portrayed in detail using small blocks of text. The blocks of text create a disturbed, heather texture due to the small positive and negative spaces. It creates visual static of noise which justly fits the demented state of Jack Torrance in The Shining. I love the font selected for the type. It is a typewriter machine style font. I can almost hear Jack’s insane click click click of his repetitive typing “All work no play makes Jack a dull boy”.

05/16/14 Top 3 Pick; This is MY Room!

Super cute design. This little man is ready to defend his territory from what goes bump in the night. He heroically holds up his sword ready to attack, but also holds on tight to his teddy bear companion. I love how the artist makes that doorway glow! By using the bright green and blues as an outline around the figures and door they almost magically pop off the screen. The artist also nicely varies the thick thin ratio of the figure to give them more or less light, adding dimension and shape to the characters.

05/16/14 Top 3 Pick; X-Ten

I remember not too long ago, going to the movie theater and falling in love with the new X-Men: Days of Future Past movie posters. The poster and concept were striking and I also greatly enjoy the X-Men movies. It also doesn’t hurt that I love James McAvoy! This idea also nicely translates for Dr. Who. This is a wonderful combination of  both Doctors. Having one face appear within another face nicely depicts transformation. It also nicely shows the change in time period of an individual being. I also love how appealing and enthralling the bright blue monotones in dynamic angles appear on top of the grayscale image.

Thank You ZEROBRIANT

ript_first-shot_1400044293_full

05/14/14 Top 3 Pick: First Shot

ATTITUDE! Both Han and Rocket are a shoot first ask questions later kind of guys. Rendered here in a tough, “cool guy” slouch, Rocket looks relaxed and nonchalant. Of course, hidden below this calm demeanor is his pistol pointed straight at its victim. I love his well illustrated raccoon face and his highly expressive eyes. The bold blocks and rough outlines of the letter forms justly fit the tough guy persona of both characters. I also really enjoy how the bright yellow of the fire really stands out against the earth tones of this design. And yes George Lucas, Han shot first!

05/14/14 Top 3 Pick: The TARDIS Zone

Surprise! I picked a Dr. Who shirt! Weird huh!? Tah dah, tah dah, tah dah, tah dah (that was my best onomatopoeia of the show’s intro music). I really enjoy this clever mash-up. Exploring space and time, the Tardis could definitely be in an episode of the Twilight Zone. Nice, simple outline of the tardis floating through space. Wonderful translation of the letter forms including: the odd-shaped serifs, various baselines, x-heights, and shifting letter axis. As you guys know, I am a sucker for typography and black and white designs!

05/14/14 Top 3 Pick: It’s Hip To Be Square

It is hip to be square, in a pixellated digital world! I love the angle in which this design is presented. It works great for the little 3-d objects and block letter forms. All the little objects seem to shift planes which make them appear in motion. Having the design be in simple black, white, and bright magenta definitely helps give it a digital appearance.

teefury_attack-on-dinosaur-r_1398658551.full

04/28/14 Top 3 Pick; Attack on Dinosaur – Red

“T-Rex doesn’t want to be fed. He wants to hunt.” Just like the titans, this dinosaur is busting through the wall and ready to eat some unsuspecting humans! This red monotone design captures the terror, the fear of the moment. I enjoy the large T-Rex head dominating the top center. Having both the dinosaur’s head and the main human figure both in focus creates tension. The rest of the design, including the T-Rex’s body is out of focus and hazy which creates depth and is wonderfully descriptive without taking away from the emotion between the man and the dinosaur. The small highlight of white also nicely leads the eye between both figures. I also enjoy that the wall motif is not forced upon this design, but is a natural part of the design and occurs in the film. Kudos!

Thank You  Justyna Dorsz

04/28/14 Top 3 Pick; Yellow King Coming

“Do you wonder ever if you’re a bad man?” “No. I don’t wonder, Marty. World needs bad men. We keep the other bad men from the door.” Wonderfully intriguing spiral pattern, both to the detectives solving the cases and as a pattern on a shirt design. I enjoy this “dream catcher”-like composition. The wild strokes resemble sticks and twigs used to create this intricate handcrafted frame. The color gradation nicely shows aerial depth. The mysterious, yellow-colored haze hovers above calling attention. This”yellow king” looms above Rust and Marty, casting a shadow over their domain.

04/28/14 Top 3 Pick; Braille Devil

Hey, justice is supposed to be blind right? I very much enjoy the circular waves behind the figure. They appear to be sound waves, which Daredevil’s heightened senses detect as a sort of “echo location”, due to his blindness. Wonderful braille pattern incorporated in the design fits the character’s motif. Very clever!
