Human Ingredients

Now here’s an interesting shirt from MySoti user and UK based graphic designer and illustrator, ropi. I have to say that I dig the concept a bit more than the actual execution of the shirt. It’s called Human Ingredients and I am guessing that it’s supposed to look like what we would see on something like a can of SPAM or similar food items. I actually would have preferred the list on the back of the tee and minus the UPC code. What do you guys think? Like it? If you do, you can pick it up from MySoti for $20.46.

Sensationalism + ShirtFight Update

The newest shirt from ShirtFight!, Sensationalism by mathiole, marks the end of a chapter and the start of a new one for the startup T-Shirt contest site. This was the last of the open contests at ShirtFight as they will be transitioning away from the T-Shirt contest model.

After next weeks Heavyweight challenge (a closed contest for those who have submitted to the site before) the ShirtFight staff will be focusing on marketing their existing stock of T-Shirts to a wider audience. They will still be adding new designs, but the ShirtFight staff will be curating those on their own.

Although it is sad to see ShirtFight abandon the weekly contests, I am excited to see how they innovate and change (for the better) in the next couple of weeks and months. Check out the video below, El Presidente and Miss Etti explain it all!

Evasion by Oiseau

The latest tee from out friends over at Tilteed is … a bit scary! I’m sure it’s one of those tees with deep meaning, but man, does it freak me out! I mean, that head looks almost corpse like. If I were still taking Anatomy, I’d wear this shirt to class every day. Okay, maybe not everyday but a lot. This shirt seems almost Hitchcockian in theme and style. I can feel the tension, dark undertones and identity issues often seen in those classic Hitchcock films just by looking at this tee.

Evasion is available now from Tilteed and is printed on a silver American Apparel tee. It’s available for $12 but you can save $2 by using the coupon code “TILTCOTY” at checkout!

Minimalism is designer speak for laziness.

I really like this slogan, I forgot what the inspiration was – probably some minimalistic design I was admiring. 

Like all good ideas this sentence was thought up in the bathroom.

I think it was something @jeffrey said on twitter that was the inspiration for this sentence. And I have to agree, some of my best ideas were born while I was on the can. Hmmm….

I yawn because they are contagious and not because I’m bored.

Yawns are a very interesting thing. They don’t discriminate. Yawns are the unconscious STD, you pass them on without even knowing it – next thing you know, you’ve got 10 people yawning. What’s the psychology behind yawns? I need to look that up.

I am a part of a group of individuals.

This is something a word snob that I follow on twitter had said: “”group of individuals” is one of the dumbest phrases in the world, and i’ve heard it twice today.” I took it and ran with it. 

I’d like to request a spoiler alert ahead of time.

Spoilers, spoiler, spoilers. I am not a big fan of people that like to look up spoilers and then spread the gospel. These types of people annoy the heck out of me. Keep the spoils to yourselves!

Papers shredders should learn how to recycle.

I’v never really been a big fan of paper shredders. I’m not sure why. I prefer the one-on-one interaction of tearing paper into small little pieces with my bare hands. It’s so much more fun and not as noisy. 

I’ve got world domination on my mind.

I really do (taps fingers ala Mr. Burns).
