Speed Trap by FM365

Flying Mouse 365 has been busily releasing new tees every week as part of his ongoing Flying Mouse 365 Project. One shirt in particular from hir current crop caught my eye. It’s called Speed Trap and it’s an obvious parody of the DC Comics character, Flash. I loved Flash growing up, how many of you remember the short lived Flash TV series? The shirt reminds me a bit of the parody tees that Glennz Tees has been come to be known for and although it’s not from Glenn it’s great to see some other artists take on parodying superheroes.

Speed Trap is printed on an American Apparel tee as available now from Flying Mouse365 for the new low price of $15.

The Awkward Turtle

I’ve never heard of the “Awkward Turtle” but it does have me intrigued.

“The Awkward Turtle is done by placing one of your hands over the other with both palms facing down, sticking your thumbs outward, and rotating both of your thumbs forward in a circular motion. The speed of the rotation reflects on the degree of awkwardness. This gesture is performed after something awkward has just happened or when there is an awkward silence. When someone makes the awkward turtle gesture, the goal of all others involved in the awkward moment is to be the first to make their own turtle gesture and hump the original turtle before any other players can.”

Will you be joining the awkward turtle revolution? If so, pick up an Awkward Turtle tee from Regal Clothing Co. for £17.99 and be sure to use the coupon code “JINGLEBELLS” at checkout for 25% off your entire order!

Sketchy Santa

This post has absolutely nothing to with T-Shirts. So, after lunch today me and a colleague, Mr. Andy Dewald, discovered a wonderful site, SketchySantas.com. Inspired by the awesomeness of SketchySantas.com we decided to do a tribute video. The background music is sung by an unknown singer and was given to us by our former (bless his heart) advisor, Dr. Ed Chronicle.

Nick Automatic

Nick Automatic is a new brand from Philippines based artist, Nicolo Nimor. The brand features 3 fresh new tees featuring, with 2 of the 3 featuring the Nick Automatic character. Pencil Crew, my favorite from the bunch, shows off Nick Automatic in all of his glory in crossbones like imagery but with pencils instead. The Citrus Club tee reminds me a little bit of some of the recent offerings from Johnny Cupcakes. And the third tee is an obvious spoof of the Cleveland Indians mascot. What do all the three tees have in common? They all feature exposed tongues. Looks like the tongue wagging will be a staple in the Nick Automatic brand – i like it!

I love what I see from Nick Automatic and am really excited to see future designs. The illustrations have a feel good feeling to them and that should come to no surprise since Nimor originally did illustrations for children’s book. The tees are priced at $18 a piece and you can pick one up from the Nick Automatic store.
