First off, HURRY, you only have 11 more hours (at the time of this post) to score Pirate Dragon at a staggering $12! OK, I had to get that out of the way before anything else – wouldn’t want you to spend 18 bucks when you can score this for a crazy insane price.
Our friend Bo from Tilteed sent this over to me a few days ago, but, I’ve been crazy busy so I didn’t have a chance to post this one. I know, there shouldn’t be any excuses when you’re trying to take over the world with your blog, LOL. It won’t happen again.
Pirate Dragon was designed by the veteran T-Shirt artist, Alex Solis (alexmdc). I’m a big fan of Alex, so, I was a little surprised that I was caught off guard with this design. I’m usually really, really really good at spotting alexmdc pieces. Whenever a new dsign of his pops up at Threadless, I know it’s his before even seeing his name. His style is distinct, and one that I am very envious of. I think it might have been the lack of color that threw me off. Needless to say, it’s a refreshing departure from his previous efforts. I like!
Pirate Dragon is available now from Tilteed for $12. By the way, I heard from a little birdie that Pirate Dragon will be part of the permanent catalog, so don’t feel to bad if you missed it at $12 – you can still score it at $18. Not too bad for a piec eof art on your chest.
And by the way, the guys and gals at Tilteed print everything themselves and like I said my previous post – that extra love and sweat makes for a T-Shirt that is superior to anything a robotic press could make.

Gulfie by Antony Aguero forÂ Bunker Designs.Pros: It’s an international shirt (from Costa Rica) so the chances of your friends having the same shirt is pretty much rare to none! The T-Shirt is tagless and features an inner screen printed label. I found it interesting that the thread used on the tee is a bit lighter in color then the T-Shirt color. The fabric of the T-Shirt is quite soft. Â Very fun design, reminds me a lot of what you’ll find at GAMA-GO.Â Cons: The T-Shirt is very form fitting, so if you do order a tee then be sure to order a size up (i.e. I normally use a Large, but I probably would have fit an XL better). Bunker Designs does offer a T-Shirt sizing chart on their website so be sure to check that chart before ordering. The print is a bit thick and has somewhat of a sticky feel (I’d bit that it will get softer and lose the sticky feel after the first wash).Â Packaging is a bit lackluster (manila envelope) but I am happy that the T-Shirt itself was packaged in a separate, clear plastic bag. Price: $15.
Eyeconic by Dance Party Massacre.Pros: Great logo tee! T-Shirt is tagless and features a screen printed inner logo instead.Â Cons: Logo tees are great for people who are fans of the brand that the logo represents. If you’re not a fan of DPM or haven’t heard of them, then this tee might not appeal to you. And if that is the case then I highly recommend you check them out, you’re bound to become a fan of their work! Price: $19.95. *T-Shirt is currently available in Charcoal, but not red.
Go Ape Shirts lives! This is the first shirt we’ve seen from Go Ape in nearly three months and it’s called Rising and it was designed by the mysteriously named artist, Yaiagift. I have to admit, that for me, it seems like an odd departure from the typical Go Ape look and feel. It’s definitely different but admittedly clings to the fun themes we’re used to from Go Ape Shirts. I’ve been seeing so much neon as of late. Neon is taking over the Internet in 2009.
Rising by Yaiagift is printed on a white American Apparel tee and is available now from Go Ape Shirts for $18. Wear this shirt and spear a dragon. I dare you.
