Score 50% off Digg Shirts

I’m a big fan of Digg. And I am an even bigger fan of Diggnation. It’s too bad that the Diggnation shirts aren’t on sale because those are the ones that I really want. However, these simple American Apparel brand Digg logo tees are an excellent consolation prize. Pick one up for just $8.50 – a cool 50% off of the retail price. Consider this deal dugg.

In Disguise by Glennz Tees

In the newest tee design from Glenn Jones, the panda takes the wrap. I have to say that In Disguise from Glennz Tees has a little Banksy infuseion. It might just be me, but when I see a panda holding a pistol I think of that mysterious British street artist. If you dig Banksy but prefer splashes of color over black and white then In Disguise might be the shirt for you. It’s available now from Glennz Tees for $19.95.

Adamantium Shirt Cool, Wolverine Movie Not So Cool

So this Adamantium tee from Busted Tees might have been the perfect tee for the premier of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but alas, the movie is no longer in the theaters. However, X-Men Origins: Wolverine was just released this week on DVD and Blu-ray so if you’re so inclined, you can order the flick and the tee and have your own little premier in the comforts of your own home.

But let me warn you. I thought that X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a summer stinker. It’s a shame really, considering Wolverine is probably my favorite of the X-Men characters. I thought the acting was weak and even worse the action sequences weren’t that great. Want to watch an awesome comic book movie? I recommend The Dark Knight or Spiderman 2. Those two never disappoint.

Adamantium is printed on an American Apparel blank and is available now for $16.99.

Castle Grayskull: Home Sweet Home

For the record, I was a HUGE Masters of the Universe fan growing up. HUGE! I had all of the “action figures” and I even had the epic Castle Grayskull! In fact, I still have all of the figures tucked away in a closet somewhere in my parents home. Having said that, I was blown away by this tee from Robit Studios. It’s appropriately titled Home Sweet Home and it undoubtedly features the characters of Castle Grayskull. Sweet! I’m a grown man and I want this shirt – nothing wrong with that because this shirt is epic.

Home Sweet Home is printed on an asphalt American Apparel tee and is available now for purchase from Robit Studios for $21.

And this is the toy Castle Grayskull that I spoke of above in all of its epic glory:

I’m Getting Too Old For…

Growing up in the 80’s, my mom loved the Lethal Weapon series of movies, though I think she secretly watched it just to see Mel Gibson. Nonetheless, I had my share of Lethal Weapon re-runs on HBO and TNT and playbacks on VHS. More recently, she purchased the entire Lethal Weapon collection on DVD. My mom is progressive so that means she’ll probably be picking up the series once more on Blu-ray in the next 2-3 years. Did I mention that she already owns the movies in both VHS and DVD formats?

Anyhow, check out this shirt from Crispy Tees, a joint venture from the guys collectively known in the T-Shirt and design communities as The Black Axe. The shirt features Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) with a twist to his usual catchline. Too Old For This Shirt is printed on an American Apparel blank and is available now from Crispy Tees for $18.00.

Hello, I Am iSteamMac

Now, if you were a fan of the iSteamPhone shirt designed by Kevin Tong earlier this year then you’ll absolutely love the iSteamMac. Kevin Tong once again delivers a wonderful illustration with his exploded Mac design, in his familiar steampunk / da Vinci style. This 2-color oversized design is a welcome addition to the exploded family of shirts that mashes up an existing exploded tee, the Exploded 128 by Garry Booth.

If you admire the work of Leonardo da Vinci then this tee might be for you. If you’re a Macintosh fan then this shirt is yet another must have. And if you’re a steampunk fan or builder than this tee would look great while you work on your real life steampunk Mac!

The iSteamMac is available now as a T-Shirt for $20 and as a 18″ x 24″ print. The shirts are printed on American Apparel blanks so you can expect the quality to be top notch.

The Macintosh

Print Liberation recently started a new series of T-Shirts featuring great moments of the twentieth century. The latest shirt in the series features the original Macintosh, circa, 1984. All I have to say is that I picked up this shirt as soon as I saw it for the first time. I love it! And I even own a vintage Macintosh, myself. This shirt makes me feel like dusting off that Mac, popping in the floppy and booting it up. I think I’ll do just that!

You can pick up The Macintosh from Print Liberation for $18.

101 T-Shirts for Artists, Art Snobs and Photoshop Gurus

So despite the first epic shirt list being daunting and time consuming, I decided to do a follow up! This time, I switch from the natural sciences to the arts and humanities by featuring 100 + 1 T-Shirts for artists, art snobs, photoshop gurus and everyone in between. Know someone who enjoys art? Chances are, they’ll enjoy at least one of the tees on this list!

Side Note: This list almost proved to be futile! I started this list about a week after the epic 101 T-Shirts for Scientists, Science Geeks and Nerds list and it took me nearly a month to compile a list of 101 worthwhile T-Shirts that fit into the category of appealing to either artists, art snobs and/or photoshop gurus. I almost gave up on the list. The first time I called it quits was after I found the first 10. Then when I reached 50, I thought, 50 is a nice round number, why not stop here? But I kept on searching every corner of InternetLAND and I eventually found 101. I hope you enjoy this list, because I sure had a difficult (but worthwhile) time compiling it!

Johnny Cupcakes + Looney Tunes

Ever since I started to follow the indie T-Shirt scene with a keen eye, I’ve been a big fan of the Johnny Cupcakes brand. I even made it a point to visit his shop on Newbury street the last time I was in Boston. Up to this point I’ve always been impressed by his creativity and imagination, as well as the way that he has interacted with his community.

Having said that, the latest collaboration, one with animation pioneers, Warner Bros., just doesn’t do it for me. When I think Johnny Cupcakes I think exclusivity. Everything about the brand is exclusive. They’ve made a ton of money by parodying pop culture. And now that they’ve got an actual pop culture icon on the front of the tees, it makes feel more “meh” than “woah.” For some reason, seeing Bugs Bunny on a Johnny Cupcakes shirt reminds of similar Looney Tunes shirts I’d see in Sears or JC Penny, with the exception of there being a Johnny Cupcakes logo slapped on. Again, more “meh” than “woah.”

Johnny, before you could ever dream of landing big licenses like that from Warner Bros., you were already making the freshest shirts around. Warner Bros might need you, but your brand certainly does not need them. You mentioned, “We did have an entire bound book given to us that was filled with rules and regulations. A what-not-to-do book. From the littlest details like whisker placements. All in all, using the tools that were + weren’t given to us, I think these came out great.” I disagree, I don’t like these for the very fact that you played by the rules. What I would have dug would have been a unique take at these classic WB characters. Sorry Johnny, I just feel like you failed to deliver on this one.
