Glenn Jones Illustrates Broken.

I love these videos.

“My drawing process for my Glennz Tees shirt designs, I use the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator and draw with a Wacom tablet. If needed, I draw a quick rough on screen first, then convert that to guides to draw my final illustration on top of that. Start to finish 60 mins compressed into 3.” -Glenn Jones

Go buy some tees from Glennz Tees.

The Dark Knight Light

This is an AWESOME T-Shirt! It’s from Shirt.Woot and was designed by Nathan W. Pyle. The design is simply called The Dark Knight, but it could have easily been called The Dark Knight Light! I think that would have been a much more witty name. This Batman glows in the dark!

If you want this one you better cop it now, it won’t be around for long, like mos other Shirt.Woot T-Shirts. You’re lucky that it’s even still available. The Dark Knight is available now from Shirt.Woot for $15.

Complicated Heart

Love is complicated. Love is hard. Love is rough. Love is a compromise. Love is joy. Love is a Rubik’s cube. Most importantly, love is worth it. And that is why I can definitely appreciate Complicated Heart by Odd Society. Complicated Heart is available now for $20.

Alien Operation – Don’t Get Zapped!

I used to LOVE playing Operation as a kid! An uncle of mine had a vintage set, probably from the late 60’s, that I used to love to play with. I wonder if he still has it? Whenever I played, I would concentrate super hard and was very careful in the hopes of not getting zapped! Well, it wasn’t a real zap, but it made this horrifying zapping sound. That counts, right?

Never played the game before? Well then you’re missing out. Go buy it now.

Speaking of the classic Hasbro boardgame, 604Republic has released an awesome Operation / Alien mashup tee. God, I would hate to have a little baby alien brewing in me. Someone did that dude on the operation table a huge favor.

Alien Operation is available now from 604Republic for $20.95.

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 13 – Pac-Shirt Postcard

“Ditch the tie. Wear a T-Shirt.” is the motto for today’s Project365 item. I call it the Pac-Shirt Postcard. I actually came up with this idea during my recent trip to Los Angeles. Surrounded by tourist-y postcards, I realized that there was indeed a lack of T-Shirt themed postcards. Here’s my first attempt to remedy that situation.

I had a couple of ideas for the front of the postcard, but ultimately ended up going with a Pac-Man theme. In lieu of Pac-Man, we’ve got a makeshift T-Shirt Pac-Shirt and instead of ghosts, we have neck ties and bow ties – the ultimate T-Shirt adversary. Enjoy!

Note: the Pac-Shirt Postcard is sized according to standard shape and size guidelines according to the United States Postal Service. The card is 6” long X 4 1/4” high.

Day 13: Pac-Shirt Postcard

Materials:

  1. Thick Card Stock Paper (paper should be around 0.007-0.016 inches thick or 80-120 pounds should to do the trick)
  2. Color Inkjet Printer

Instructions:

  1. Insert paper into printer and print the front postcard file (file labeled Postcard-Front.jpg).
  2. Once the front of the postcard has finished printing, flip it over and insert into your printer once more and print the back of the postcard (file labeled Postcard-Back.jpg).
  3. Cut postcard out of the paper.
  4. Write a message and send to someone who needs to wear a little less ties and a bit more T-Shirts!

This Pac-Shirt Postcard was inspired by Pac-Man.

This is How You Lego A Theadless T-Shirt

On a scale of 0 to 100, with o being radless to 100 being amazingly rad, this Threadless T-Shirt to Lego build conversion by Alex Eylar scores an astounding 100 on my radness scale. Alex took the recently released, Tetris themed T-Shirt, and “rebuilt” it using some oversized Lego’s. Alex originally posted the photo over on his Flickr page.

Threadless Tetris T-Shirt in Legos

And here is the original Threadless T-Shirt, Let The Game Continue by Eduardo San Gil. Interstingly, the shirt which was just released last week Monday is no longer found in the Threadless catalog. And trying to access the direct link to the T-Shirt leads you right back to the Threadless catalog. Was the T-Shirt taken down because Nintendo complained? I wonder.

Suck It Trebek: SNL Celebrity Jeopardy Parody T-Shirt

I admit that I no longer watch as much Saturday Night Live as I used to do. In fact, nowadays I tune in mainly to catch the musical act, if it’s a group that interests me. However, there was a time when I tuned in to SNL on a regular basis, when  Sandler, Ferrell, Carvey, Farley and Myers ruled the SNL airwaves.

One of my favorite Ferrell sketches was definitely the Celebrity Jeopardy sketches with “Sean Connery.” See below for some funny clips! The sketch is so timeless that our friends over at NerdyShirts decided to turn it into a T-Shirt! Suck It Trebek is the NerdyShirt homage to the classic SNL sketch.

You can pick up Suck It Trebek from NerdyShirts now for $14.95 (special presale price).

Video Games Lied To Me

Our friends over at Made With Awesome just released a brand spanking new tee that is perfect for people who aspired to be plumbers based solely on their experiences with Super Mario Bros. You see, Super Mario Bros. changed everything in 1985 when it came to the plumbing industry. Super Mario Bros. was a game changer. It made plumbing exciting and almost James Bond like. As a plumber, you jumped through pipes, beat up the bad guys, smashed a few turtles along the way and then get the girl in the end. Super Mario Bros. made plumbing awesome!

But as with other things in real life, plumbing was not all it was made out to be. After the release of the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES was released, a number of eager kids aspired and eventually became full-fledged plumbers. Needless to say, there was to be no pipe jumping, no beating up the bad guys, no run in with turtles and unfortunately, plumbers never got the girl in the end.

And so the lives of these ordinary plumbers carried on. They’d fix broken pipes, but not do much else. For many children turned adults, the plumbing industry was a big fat lie. And to bring this sham to the attention of the masses, Made With Awesome delivers their very straight forward Video Games Lied To Me About The Adventurous Lives of Plumbers. Because sometimes, you just need to draw a line. This is Made With Awesome drawing a big fat line. You can buy it now from Made With Awesome for just $22.

And P.S., if you enjoyed this shirt then it is a necessity that you check out this list of 101 Nintendo T-Shirts.

Tetris Taught Me the Fundamentals of Architecture

Here’s yet another excellent shirt from Twitter Tees, the Threadless and Twitter side project, and it’s a shirt that any kid who grew up in the early 90’s with a Gameboy or NES can attest to. It’s called Tetris Taught Me The Fundamentals of Architecture and is an obvious homage to the brick building game that was a gaming and cultural phenomenon. The featured tweet was originally tweeted by @nintechno. You can pick up this shirt from Threadless Twitter Tees for $18.
