Aled is a London-based illustrator who has been bringing the witty and the cute for awhile now via tees and prints. He is a life-long gamer, influenced and inspired by comics, film and television. And his drawing on graphic design, pop and geek culture is in prankish postmodernism and childlike, fantastical images. He’s been a household name on Threadless.com for a number of years, and his computer-game inspired artwork has been featured on the New York Times website, exhibited around the world and, of course, most recently used by Playstation. He is very creative, different, and just hilarious in the best kind of way. I really want to keep going on about this guy because his subtle but clever way of taking very ordinary landscape or city shots and turning them into perfect backdrops for his 8-bit characters has been making me giggle.
The only problem with the work of London-based designer and illustrator Aled Lewis is that I don’t have the room to highlight all of it. Well check out his website and get your giggle on!

There is a pretty innovative site coordinated by Joe Brawl and his brother, Tim. They bring us pretty fascinating competition. It’s called Tshirt Fight, they’ll be selling two tees every week. So far it just ordinary, but they put a bit of a twist, at the end of each week the shirt which has sold the most will roll over onto the next week and continue to be sold alongside a new challenger, and the winner of the sales ‘fight’ the next week gets to carry on and so on and so forth while the losing one is never to be seen again.
Katie Campbell takes the child-like look of classic animal art and twists it into a much more grown-up scene with Bambi and pals going on some whiskey. Hipsterly. See, the classic elements awakened some nostalgia in me, but the irony of whiskey really is a bit awkward but doable. Don’t you think you all agree with me? It’s called… once upon a good time.
“House Brawl” tee shirt, designed in collaboration between by Alex Solis and Alice X. Zhang was inspired by Harry Potter. Each animal symbolizes the houses of Hogwarts; Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.
It’s designed for the fans, and kind of reminds me of sorting hat. Wear this shirt, and let the shirt chose, in which house you belongs to.
For each of the four founders had
A house in which they might
Take only those they wanted, so
Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned
~ Romans 5:12

David Vicente was born in 1968 in Southern France. This guy got a cool realistic vector style, but he also works mainly with the psychobilly aesthetic. He began his career by drawing monsters and other characters that were all rebels in their way with epic amount of details.
David Vicente’s illustrations are representation of American pop-culture from the 50′s and 60′s. B movies, pinball machines, Satan, Betty Boop, Johnny Cash, even sex and violence with scornful and flashy style. He takes us for a ride in a death proof car, pedal to the metal, with guitar riffs blasting on the radio and a gun in the glove box, travelling through decades from the 50′s into the 80′s. Believe me, you will get an eyeful of beautiful and strong women, or grimy men that gamble.
