Fred Quemener created Hellbound, a complex artwork of disfigured face vectorized by interlocking cuts graphics. The graphic shows interplay between mystical iconography of the stained glass and layered textures and hybrid silhouettes. It also confronts several paradigms for questioning outside the imaginary spectrum. Confused? Don’t be (because I am!). Just enjoy the artwork by wearing it in screen printed tee shirt — only 50 pieces sold at Phenum.
Zombietshirts.pl is a tee shirts & clothing shop brought to the world by Polish illustrators and artists. Not so surprising, it also has also competition for designers with every three months, best design wins the 1000 PLN (equal to approx. $330). So far, they have managed to acquire several very famous and talented Polish illustrators. As the collection grows, I decided to have my list of 10 Loveliest T-shirts Ever Printed by Zombietshirts.pl — here it goes:
Enclothe‘s Paradox is a hell good tee shirt with illustration that speaks about human-universe paradox unsurely. Through this tee shirt, perhaps, Jerry Maninang has something to be spoken quietly about characteristics of human behaviour. It’s about the vast majority of people in the world today that are failing to achieve their full potential, happiness, wealth, health and desires through a complete lack of understanding of the way in which the Universe operates — illustrated with nature-life its immutable, perfect, loving way. Damn, too serious for Valentine’s Day!
STUBBORN SIDEBURN is brain-child of Japanense artists, Junichi Tsuneoka, whose focal point is the distintive a style often recognized as “California Roll Stylie,” the result of both a visual and conceptual fusion of Japanese pop culture and American urban culture.
With intention to experiment and explore while giving his “characters” a purpose to live and creating a world for them, Mr Junichi Tsuneoka started STBN SDBN (short for STUBBORN SIDEBURN) just last year. As he told me, his illustration is more into character design driven and it is very good at getting instant attention from the audience.
STBN SDBN tees are all hand-crafted. It’s because Mr Junichi Tsuneoka designed his own neck label and sleeve tag sawn on the tee. Surprisingly, there are only make 24 shirts per design and one of them already worn by Mr Junichi Tsuneoka as he only produces T-shirt if he want to wear it himself.
The poster you see here really remind me of Aslan, the “Great Lion,” widely known central figure in The Chronicles of Narnia movie by C. S. Lewis.
I’m not saying this design it’s copycat and really, as you know, lion’s face taken from straight from the front has become a symbol of power covered in gentle manner but can be dangerous (in a good and bad way). Many artists have taken it as inspiration for their artworks. And Seventh.Ink has done it just awesome with its 4TH ANNIVERSARY poster that comes together when you buy the tee for $50.
Too bad there are only 50 of these sets were made (tee shirts and posters). Good for us, each poster is hand numbered and signed by the artist with metallic silver ink. Who’s the artist? That’s my question too.
Some says wearing tee shirts is a matter of expressing oneself while other says you can be a standing, alive canvas of any visual arts that carry implicit messages simple by wearing one. In this case, Blonde Grizzly and its featured artist has produce T-shirt that satisfy both opinion.
Berlin, Germany-based Dudes Factory is not different with Spreadshirt or Shirtcity when it comes to on-demand T-shirt designing tool which they call LAB. But what makes it different is how it expand its business by tapping into talented graphic artist with monthly new artist invited to contribute a design or two for Dudes Factory new collection. With user-friendly tool provided, anyone can design a tee shirt by combining elements created by those artists and designers so that they can come up with their own individual Dudes products.
Vintage design is always interesting to be displayed along with a shirt, or printed on a shirt. Therefore many t-shirt companies have their own vintage design on their products. No exception Brass Tack on their recently released lines. The themes of their tees are vintage, but yes, they have their own vintage designs, and I am proud to call it a black-artistic-vintage design.
Talk about men’s version of Valentine’s Day, check out Florian Bertmer t-shirt designs like (Mens & Womens) Hagakure Heart ($25), a 5 colors spot print on Ice Gray 100% Organic Cotton T-shirts. The heart necklace sign and the huge red heart at the back of the tee, shows that love not neccesarily created to be feminin. Also check out Womens Vanity ($25), it’s a 7 colors spot print on bubble gum pink 100% Organic Cotton T-shirts! Even though it’s pink, but the design is not a typical pink t-shirt. All of his designs are uniquely done and incredibly hardcore!
If you like EIO Clothing (Excess Is Ok) that has known for its loud, outlandish and sometimes even outrages designs, you’ll definitely love new winter collection by Rakes & Strays. This includes around 12 new designs. Lots more hand drawn, photo inspired, fantastical new prints from the resident artists.
Even though Rakes & Strays is EiO brother line, but the design has been toned down to represent what they called “sympathy with the past”. There’s a romantic side of Rakes & Strays winter line, with sultry Paris (£ 29.95) t-shirt and the magnificent piece called Butterfly Kaleidoscope (£ 29.95).
Even with the differences, those designs all sit together nicely under the Rakes & Strays’ brand and offer something for everyone. Including women! There are more designs available in the women’s collection. Changing the company from a predominantly male market and providing a range of amazingly cut long tees.
All designs are produced in limited numbers so you have to be quick. Check em out and remember it’s not a bad thing to give your self a new look for 2010.
There’s new tee shirt brand I want you to check out. If you’re a big fan of graphic tees that exhibit the beauty of abstract art — random lines, curves and colors that’s combined gracefully to create attractive composition of visual language — you might like Hypnic. It was just officially launched few days ago together with its first line of tee designs printed on American Apparel.
I know this could be your “omg… yet another tee shirt!” but there’s nothing wrong the check out the line. If you like V-neck tees, Hypnic got some for you. If you have been looking for good-looking purple color tee for some time, Hypnic has this tee called RORO($24.99). Another reason to make a purchase, you can get 10% off your total purchase when you use coupon code COTTON at the checkout. This magic word can only be used before the end of October.
