Olly Moss Select Collection at Threadless

Before I say anything else in this post I will say that I am and have for the longest time been a fan of Olly Moss. Heck, I own nearly all of his Threadless prints and even own multiple prints of SPOILT in both T-Shirt and hoodie form. Since 2003, Moss has had over 20 designs printed at Threadless. He seemingly has been everywhere, from Newsweek to exclusive Mondo prints to an article in the New York Times. Olly Moss is the IT boy, not only in T-Shirt design but poster design as well.

Having said that, his latest release over at Threadless is a bit lackluster, at least it is to me. The collection, released late last week, is a celebration of Moss’ rise in popularity. The 4-piece collection epitomizes the concept of minimalism. Minimalism? Pfft?! I don’t want no stinking minimalism when it comes to an exclusive Olly Moss / Threadless collection. Classic Olly Moss Threadless designs have three basic qualities: 1. they’re fun, 2. they have a keen typographical style, and 3. they’re … umm … minimalistic.

Don’t get me wrong, each of the 4 designs fulfill 2 of the 3 qualities that I listed above. But what the heck happened to the FUN? Seeing these designs make me yearn for worthy follow ups to Spoilt, In Case of Zombies, and The Food Chain. Is it because it was made for the Threadless Select line? If so, then I’d wish it wasn’t made for the Select line. I can appreciate artsy fartsy designs, but I want fun artsy fartsy designs that are exciting to look at.

If ever Threadless happens to pay homage to Glenn Jones (another favorite Threadless alumni of mine), I hope they do it properly … and for goodness sake, keep it out of the Select line!

The Olly Moss Select Collection is available now at Threadless for $36 a piece.

Full Dosclosure: I’m picking up 2 of the 4 designs. Can you guess which two?

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!
