No matter how you call yourself: cycle commuter, a bike messenger, a recently dethroned champion cyclist, or just enjoy a casual ride through the park — this shirt make a hell (skull) good presence of someone who love his/her bicycle so much.
She is Lara Hanlon, 20 years old and currently studying Design in Visual Communication at IADT Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, Ireland. Art has always been a big part of her life, especially illustration and photography. While there many reasons for a graphic artists to get into t-shirt design, it was the idea of someone giving ‘life’ to a piece of her art, instead of having a nice print or drawing tucked away in someones bedroom.
“There is also something really nice and satisfying about wearing an original artwork, be it band t-shirts, illustrator t-shirts or independent clothing brands,” as she said to me.

Although the tragic events in Haiti are no longer fresh in people’s minds, UK artist Uberkraaft (Matt Williams) believes that the country’s needs should still be in our thoughts. Because of this, he has created a limited edition design for Tilteed where a portion of the profits will be donated to Hope for Haiti. For each copy of Old Skuul Kuul ($12) sold, $4 will be going to Hope for Haiti.
This is what Uberkraaft has to say about why he chose this organization:
“Firstly, there’s a natural tendency with terrible disasters like those that have hit Haiti to drop out of people’s consciousness as soon as the initial shock is over. Haiti seems to be a particularly neglected country in terms of aid & support from the international community, disaster or no disaster, and to be completely blunt it kind of disgusts me. Because they have little in the way of produce & commodities that interest us, we appear to think it’s ok to neglect & ignore what’s going on. I’m not expecting the sale of some tees to make a huge difference, but in a small way I wanted to remind at least a few people that the problems haven’t just gone away.”
