When I see the name “Manteater,” I automatically think about that one Nelly Furtado song and dance around in my seat. However, (M)anteater by Sven Palmowski aka a.mar.illo has absolutely nothing to do with this fun pop jam. Instead, it has everything to do with the popular anteater meme that has spread around the Internet like wildfire. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you’ve been missing out on a good laugh. Google “FU anteater” and you’ll see exactly what I’m referring to. Hilarious, right? Oh, and if you just search for anteaters in general, there are some other funny pictures and captions as well. Anteaters are like the new LOLcats, and I’m totally down with that.(M)anteater shows a gigantic anteater that doesn’t have a care in the world, wrecking everything around him and eating all the little humans. This reminds me of a crossover between Godzilla and the classic arcade game, Rampage. I wouldn’t mind seeing this anteater as a new character in the game. I hope that after reading this, someone creates a bootleg version of the game with said character.
Owls are such fascinating animals. There are so many different species, all of which are cool in their own way. T-shirt designs featuring these birds also have a way of being very well done, which makes me like owls even more. The shirt that I’m about to present to you is no exception. Feathers & Fortune Telling ($12) by Adam Vaudin is the newest limited edition offering from Tilteed.
After several years of t-shirt purchasing, my tastes have changed quite a bit. I now have a soft spot for one-color designs. Don’t get me wrong, they still have to be good designs, but I’m just recently finding beauty in simple colorways. Coincidentally, I also formed a love for heather gray t-shirts relatively recently. That makes this shirt even more appealing to me. Perhaps you share these two loves like I do, in which case this t-shirt would be a perfect addition to your closet!
Adam mentions in his interview at Tilteed that this design was partially inspired by one of his favorite holidays, Halloween. It’s one of my favorites, too. When else can you dress up and go around the neighborhood to get free candy? Precisely. With that said, if you’re looking for a shirt to wear on the candy-filled (and probably party-filled) night next month, this could be one of your options.
Breath of Life ($12) by April Wells (theinfinityloop) is the newest Limited design to grace Tilteed. With its magical horn, the moon is blowing the life back into these dead creatures. I find this to be a beautiful illustration that obviously has a deeper meaning. In the interview found on the Breath of Life product page, theinfinityloop discusses her idea behind this piece:
“The idea behind it is renewal. If this design was somehow animated, you’d see the flesh of the three creatures being built back on the skeletons. They are coming back to life. C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe inspired this. There is a part when Aslan, the lion, breathes on statues, causing them to return to their former flesh and bone, giving them life. But renewal doesn’t have to be so literal and physical. This can also be about starting over, taking a new direction, renewal of spirit, etc. I chose the moon because it itself renews every month. So does the ocean’s tide, which is also included here.”
The simple, one-color palette suits the design well, as the focus is placed on the complexities of the message that the illustration is sending out. You can order your copy of Breath of Life ($12) at Tilteed from now until Noon Pacific Time on Monday, September 20. After that, it’s gone for good!
With all the animals swimming around in the ocean, it must be tough for creatures like starfish to only be able to lie there and watch, dreaming of the day when they can swim around like the others. Unfortunately, it’s not in the cards for them to swim. All that they can do is slowly crawl along surfaces. That doesn’t sound like much fun at all, does it?
Lucky for this one starfish, he has friends who are willing to help! The manta ray and jellyfish put their heads together and thought… and thought… and thought some more. What could they do to help their friend get the experience that isn’t naturally possible? With their thinking caps on (little hats made from torn seaweed), a big light bulb came on. They came up with a solution, the one that you see on this t-shirt design, called He Wanted To Fly So Badly ($18). Boy, oh boy, was their little starfish friend happy! The jellyfish and manta ray swam for hours, giving their buddy a ride he’ll never forget. They may have been a little bit tired after a while, but they didn’t mind. They saw the pure joy written all over the starfish’s face and knew that it was all worth it. That’s what friendship is all about!
Arrrrrrrrrrr, mateys! Say hello to the world’s only peg legged pirate dragon. But don’t let the fact that he’s missing a leg and a hand fool you, as this beast is capable of tearing anything or anyone apart. My best advice is to not do anything to butt heads with this mean creature, or else you’re surely toast! The only one whom he trusts is his little avian friend who happily sits on his shoulder. I hear they have been best friends since they were tiny dragon and bird babies.
Pirate Dragon ($12 pre-order/ $18) by Alex Solis (aka alexmdc) is the newest addition to the Tilteed catalog. What makes Alex Solis such a remarkable artist is his attention to detail. Just look at all the fine lines and shading in this piece and you’ll see exactly what I mean. The dragon scales look incredible, as Alex took the time to customize each and every one of them. Doesn’t it just make you wonder how one person can create such jaw-dropping artwork?
If you love Pirate Dragon, sail over to Tilteed to get your copy! This shirt is available for pre-order for $12 for the next 72 hours, and will go back to the normal catalog price after that. While you’re there, be sure to get to know Alex Solis a little bit better by reading the short interview found on the Pirate Dragon product page.
What do you call sea otters that you get to look at as you walk down the street? See otters!
For the next 72 hours, ninety brings us a joyful Tilteed Limited piece called See Otters ($12). Can you imagine walking down the street and having this wondrous sight to see? It’s cooler than being at an aquarium because you don’t expect it at all. The otters look like they’ve taken over the entire building for their own amusement. Just look at them go, doing all those crazy flips! I can’t look at this design and not smile.
There’s even one hanging out in the car parked on the street. I don’t know what it’s doing in there or how it got in there. I guess the better question is how did any of this happen? How did all that water get inside the building and vehicle and stay inside? There’s either some magic going on here or I’m simply imagining things. But you see it too, right? I’m going to quit while I’m ahead so that I don’t question my own sanity.
If you love these lovable sea creatures or simply enjoy having some wild imagination on your t-shirts, then this is the perfect design for you! You can get a copy of See Otters at Tilteed from now until Noon PDT on Saturday.
The woods are a place full of mystery and beauty, and King of the Woods ($12) by spacemonkeydr does a wonderful job of conveying this. This latest Tilteed Limited design shows a buck that is very well camouflaged in its home. When I look at this design, I get a sense of stillness but also a sense of wonder. What is this deer doing? What is it thinking? The buck’s eyes look like they’re trying to send us a message, but what exactly is this message? Perhaps we humans are getting too close to his territory. I wouldn’t mess with a deer with such mighty antlers. Just look at how powerful he appears!
Although King of the Woods is a one-color print, there’s nothing simple about the design. What I love about the illustration is how difficult it is to distinguish between the trees and the deer’s antlers. The birds are a nice touch because they add to this illusion. The gray textures in the background also help add a sense of depth in the woods, making the deer come forward and really stand out. All in all, this is a bold piece that deserves to get noticed.
Looks like it’s lunchtime at the office! This hammerhead shark has been working hard in his cubical all morning long and his taste buds are now ready for a delicious fish feast to boost up his energy. Lucky for him, this meal won’t take too much effort to attain since he already has a nice trail laid out for him. The little fish looks he’s just swimming along with absolutely no idea that he’s in any kind of danger. Unfortunately for him, instead of finding lunch during his own break, he’ll be a hungry shark’s meal today. Despite putting on a Band-Aid this morning, this little guy is doomed. Doesn’t he know that Band-Aids don’t hold up well in the water? Life in the ocean is tough!
I love Jublin’s idea of having the trail spell out “blood” and making it so that the letters aren’t uniform and blatantly obvious. The colors of this piece look great together, and the subtle green lines definitely add more depth to the ocean ripples. I love both the linework and the characters in this piece.
Things are getting much mellower for the next 72 hours at Tilteed with the latest Tilteed Limited design. S is for Slow ($12) by shortriver is like a page out of a children’s alphabet book, showing a sloth doing what it does best: traveling at extremely slow speeds. The choice of animal is great, as both its name and its slowness are represented by the letter S.
Sloths are quite fascinating creatures, and I have a fun time watching them when I’m at the zoo. Of course, they’re never doing much, since I don’t think they’re capable of being busy. I wonder how long it takes for them to move 50 feet! One thing that I’ve noticed, however, is that while their movements are slow, sloths do not take their sweet time when they’re eating. It takes a while for a sloth to reach for food and bring it back to its mouth for consumption, but once the food is in good position, the sloth chows it down like there’s no tomorrow!
What I find to be wonderful about the piece is that if it were a real sloth hanging on a branch on your shirt, it’ll probably still be in the same place for a while, similar to the permanence of this illustration. Although this particular sloth isn’t moving anywhere, S is for Slow is disappearing from Tilteed in 3 days, so act fast if you want your copy!
Ever wondered what rabbits dream about when they go to bed? It’s not as pleasant as you may have thought. Stormy Nightmares by Brian Walline shows just how bad these dreams may be. There’s definitely no sign of happiness in these horrible nightmares, just a very real possibility of death. It’s a surprise this little furry friend doesn’t have insomnia!
Head over to Tilteed to pick up your copy of Stormy Nightmares ($12) before it disappears forever at noon Pacific Time tomorrow!

We know that comic is everlasting. But have you ever imagine the hand-painted webcomic that turning into a tee design and get printed? I find it cute! It’s Frank Gibson as an illustrator and creator of Tiny Kitten Teeth which is updated at least three times a week. But he’s not alone. There’s also Becky Dreistadt as a creator, and they have been making comics together for 5 years. The main fellow in the comic, Mewsli, shares a name with their actual one-year old cat.
And now you not only find the comic to read, but also to be worn as a t-shirt! These are two funny comic t-shirt design from Frank Gibson.

This is made from cotton in black, and the pink comic will look eye catching when you wear it.
Giraffe Crush Shirt ($18.25+shipping) tells you about the giraffe who fell in love with a tool She call “a guy I can chill with”.

Not only a real Gothic girl that be able to make clothes for Alice in Wonderland theme. Hot Topic is in competitor line by bringing the entire army with its licensed gears, not only about clothes, but also tons of other things. Four pages of Alice in Wonderland goodies, surely at least one or two clothes will attract your taste. Again, I am sorry, these collections are only for women.
Here are some tee design that I love most. First one is called Curiouser tee ($22). This design really depicts the other side of Johnny Depp’s Mad HatterCheshire cat. Well, from the movie trailers, you can guest that this character is actually quite mysterious and charmingly curious. On other hand, he is fond of pranks and tricks, especially with its ability to disappear and reappear.
The other one is this queen, Red Queen tee ($22). I like the combination of V-neck, bleached red background, and arrogant pose of the queen herself. Truly reveals the glory of magical kingdom in the story. This V-neck tee is made from 65% of polyester and 35% cottons. Bear in mind that Hot Topic is currently holding lower shipping charge promotion for certain period in time.
*Good thing, they accept international shipping too.
Tim Burton is a well known director especially for his Gothic theme in every movie he directs. One movie that will approach us is Alice in Wonderland. Approximately, the movie will be premiered starting next week, based on the classic novel by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (under pseudonym Lewis Carroll). The actual published date of the novel was on 1865, since then there are lot of movies made based on the characters.
Bringing up the Gothic spirit, La Carmina presents the Carmina in Wonderland t-shirt, designed by Joy. The picture depicts Alice and her cat — the grinning Cheshire cat that we used to know. Of course, it’s quite creepy picture presented but hey it’s Gothic after all!
The tees is available for both men and women size, priced at US$21.99 ~ you can can buy it from Akumu Ink (also available in guy’s size). To accompany this t-shirt, La Carmina has made black hoodie with similar design placed in the back side. The price of the hoodie is US$48,50 for men and women size. Anyway, all cats in the designs are based on the real world cat, Basil Farrow, La Carmina’s Scottish Fold cat.
If you looking for a chic, funny, quirky, unusual yet cool clothing, Lady Umbrella is the right answer for you!
The brand LadyUmbrella came to be as a direct result of the wet Irish weather. Elena, the Spanish designer & founder of LadyUmbrella, who had lived most of her life in Madrid/Barcelona arrived in Ireland during the dark, wet, winter months of 2007 and saw streets laiden with umbrellas. The quantity of umbrellas obscured and hid peoples faces – LadyUmbrella was born.
The Lady with an umbrella shaped head is always there as a star in each tees and also with a story that come along with her. My Favorite is LadyUmbrella is Away With the Birds and What Came first – The Chicken or The Umbrella Tee shirts (€24.99). The colors and the unique illustration steal my heart right away!
All LadyUmbrella Tees are made with 100% combed cotton with a soft discharge print. T-shirts have a smooth woven 100 denier damask neck label which is also soft. All of their t-shirts come with customised hang tags which are signed, dated and numbered by the Elena (the designer) so each t-shirt is unique to the person who buys it. Nice!
Check out the shop section and get your own LadyUmbrella!
I don’t recognize most of “animals” pictured in this group shot, I reckon most of them resemble “cats” (or the likes), an animal looks like “sheep”, but I can’t tell which one in specific. A group shot of animal kingdom is really we see nowadays and this t-shirt makes it happen. And it happens to when you see shirt called Group Shot, designed by the man nicknamed mildred ~ have I mentioned that you can see his iconic signature in the back side?
While I am sort of animal lover myself, this design is actually quite creepy. I bet not all cute-loving-girls want to wear it. Despite that fact, I think this design will look cooler on men. In addition, you can punk’d your friend(s), asking them to count how many “animals” snapped in this design. At least 25 creatures where shot, I re-count. 25 faces in one design, cool huh?
Available at US$17.95 from Zazzle, the t-shirt is available for guys and girls with brown background only. Perhaps they want to add more background color, that will be better. Grab them while still hot and the “animals” are willing to be in the picture!
Elena Gallen, a visual artist located in Barcelona that already well known with her bleeding nose Kate Moss and the double headed Bambi design tee, is now releasing new designs. She’s collaborating with French brand Kulte on this limited edition of t-shirts collection “The Final Day” which theme is the end of the world. That’s exciting. Who haven’t watch 2012?! It seems like everybody is curious to know how they’re life gonna end. I guess that’s inspired Elena in the first place.
In this The End of the World Caused by a Black Hole T-shirt (€30.00), she tried to translate the speculation of how the world’s going to end, with a big dot as black hole in the center of the tee, surrounded by 2 green girls. It’s pretty and edgy.
You can also feel the strong power coming out of Divine Intervention tee (€30.00). It has geometry style, with nice blended bright colors and somehow fit the intrepretation of divine.
Her new collection “Sacred Geometry” will be out very soon. It evolves around the divinity of mathematics, focusing on the aurea proportion applied to human, nature and culture. Can’t wait! All of her “The Final Day” collection can be bought here. If you buy all 4 t-shirts, you’ll get a special price from Elena. How cool is that!
As we all know, some of the biggest influence in our life come from art, music and sport. That’s why we could relate easily with Dephect clothing designs. Dephect is a London-based lifestyle and clothing brand which sets itself apart by collaborating with artists from across Europe to produce t-shirts that fit in with its interests in underground art, music and sports scenes. As well as being a clothing brand, Dephect is a way of life for a group of friends from London with a healthy appetite for creativity.
Like this Elephant t-shirt showing the blue elephant carrying speakers on top of him. It looks good in 2 tone colors. Also a perfect t-shirt to wear to your friend’s parties. Find your musical soul in the vintage Cassette Tree t-shirt (also in 2 tone) and in the great concept of Natural Beats by Heather. Mostly, the designs in Dephect shows edgy and provocative ideas. You’d like all of their designs!
And now, to celebrate Dephect’s 10-year anniversary, they create an event called: “On Paper”. It will feature 25 of Dephect’s top-selling and favourite t-shirt graphics as lithographic prints (£25).
