Admiral Ackbar has been getting a lot of attention in the tee world as of late. First it was the popular Obama Hope parody tee featuring the admiral called “Trap.” And now Might Tees has released a limited edition (150 shirts printed) Admiral Ackbar ASCII It’s A Trap tee. The design was inspired by the ASCII art that liters the Digg comments section and is part of the Might Tees Death by ASCII Art series. It’s Â A Trap is printed on an organic cotton tee and is available now from Might Tees for $35.99.
Here’s a cool video that I stumbled upon on the blog of the German T-Shirt contest site, A Better Tomorrow. The two and half minute video was done by Leo Belik and shows T-Shirt preparation and printing using an automatic carousel machine. I never get tired of seeing T-Shirts go from start to finish.Â
The Exploded 128 tee is the newest tee of the popular exploded style to hit the Internets. It was designed by illustrator Garry Booth and feature, arguably, the most influential personal computer ever created -- the original Macintosh. Just to give you some perspective, when the Macintosh was unveiled on January 24, 1984, it featured an 8 MHz processor and 128 KB of RAM built in. Yes, 128 kilobytes. The street price for one of these cute beige beauties was $2495.00. Isn’t it amazing how far we’ve come in the past 25 years. As a side note, I actually own one of these guys. A teacher in high school had one lying around from his college years and I asked him if I could have it. And luckily for me, he passed it on.
The tee is available now for $18 and is printed on an American Apparel asphalt tee. And I have to say that the Apple fan in me is absolutely in love with this tee!
Also, check out the two videos below of the original unveiling famous 1984 ad and of Steve Jobs doing a demo of the Macintosh.
The oh so creative Glenn Jones has come up with an ingenious idea for his popular T-Shirt designs – laptop skins! And why not, people love originality and by slapping one of these skins on your laptop you will indeed achieve an originality. Just be ready for the constant ooogling by others (because people get jealous fast when they see awesome stuff) and the tirade of “Where’d yo get that” inquiries. The Glennz skins are available now for 13″ to 17″ laptops and sell for $17.95.
I also noticed, and thought that I would point this out, that a few of the skins sport some of Glenn Jones’ older Threadless designs – like one of my faves “What Would MacGyver do?” Interesting, huh!
