Dale Edwin Murray has been a mainstay in the indie T-Shirt scene for some time now, so it wasn’t a surprise when I had found out that he recently opened his own online T-Shirt shop. Bananas Tees is Murray’s foray into T-Shirt independence.
Murray is probably best known for his iconic Threadless design, Music Business Remastered. Despite his Threadless success, Murray has won nearly every T-Shirt design contest online, including Tilteed, A Better Tomorrow, Chimpogo, and Shirt.Woot. Yes, he does get around!
The first batch of T-Shirt from Bananas Tees include 5 designs that feature the illustration prowess of Murray. My favorite from the bunch is definitely High 5 – it’s a simple idea that works flawlessly.
Each of the T-Shirts are priced at Â£15.0, which is about $23.50 US. Go buy some now at Bananas Tees!

Two new episodes Co-Tee TV went live this week! If you missed them then be sure to check them out below. And of course, be sure to check out the guys that we featured, including Bunker Designs and Zombie Liquorice.
I also did a short video talking about the new baby line of onesies and tees from out friends at Kosher Ham! Use the code “COTYFANS” at checkout to score an extra 10% off your entire order!
Now this was an absolute blast of a list to do. It’s a list of 76 Threadless T-Shirts from sketch to print. The post was based on a post that Phil Jones started on the Threadless Blogs. He asked artists to post sketches. I thought it would be cool to give a before and after perspective and thus this post was born!

Every day I come up with a new witty Threadless TypeTees Slogan in hopes of earning a Threadless Alumni Club Medal of Honor. At the end of every week I post a round up of that weeks slogans here on my blog. What can you do to help the cause? Vote! Just click on a slogan (preferably all of them) and then vote by click “I’d Wear It!” – it’s that simple! If you want to see and vote for all of my slogans then just click here or on that photo of me with the Rockband guitar. Vote for me and I will make you an awesome grilled cheese sandwich if ever we meet in real life.
It’s only logical that the Abominable Snowman doesn’t exist, especially if Bigfoot says so. [NOTE: If you voted on this slogan on the past please vote again using this link, the older version had a typo a big boo boo for any TypeTees submission.]
So I came up with this logo as I was blogging a little bit. It just popped in my head. I liked it and so it’s todays slogan! This slogan makes me sad because I had my wisdom teeth pulled out, all 4 of em, when I was 16!
I’m not sure how I came up with this slogan, but I think, I think, that it came to me today when I heard someone on the radio say the famous line, There’s No I In Team. Although there’s no I, I think that the other letters in TEAM are not too shabby. I myself am a fan of T and A.
The next two “psychology” themed slogans are a result of me working on a two papers on the subject. Universities should seriously offer a course in the Psychology of Awesomeness. What makes awesome people, awesome? Are there brain regions associated with extreme awesomeness? And, of course, what are the fundamental behavioral characteristics of awesomeness?Â
I seriously do. If it’s something that I wish to just have fly through one ear and out the other then that’s exactly what will happen. Selective attention, it’s not a choice, it’s an innate characteristic that I possess.Â
This is one of the statement slogans. I wish Bigfoot existed so that I could give him a cookie. I wish Nessie existed so that I could snap a pic of her/him and I wish that world peace existed so that we could all live happy and be happy. But of course, we know that Bigfoot doesn’t exist, Nessie was a hoax and world peace, well, until we get rid of religion (among other things) we can forget about that.Â
It seems that every week I have at least one slogan that highlights my laziness. In truth, I’m not a lazy person – I just wish I could lounge around all day. By the way, I firmly believe in doing homework – it builds character!
If I ever got to see Bigfoot my life would be complete! This is another great design from London based artist and Threadless regular, Dale Edwin Murray. This particular tee is called Bigfoot Boombox and is available now from Epic Weave. Ever better -- it’s on sale for a measly $12.95 (regular price $15.00). It’s printed on a baby blue American Apparel tee for sweatshop free comfort!Â
Have any of you teeple had a Bogfoot encounter? If so, I want to hear about it!Â
