Insectoid!, a newly released tee from Threadless is truly bittersweet. Threadless decided to print the design after they had found out the the designer, harpo25 (Bart Vandevel), an active member of the Threadless community had passed away. Unfortunately, harpo25, an active submitter with over 100 plus design submissions, never saw Insectoid! get printed. Threadless will be sending the prize winnings to harpo25’s family to help with funeral costs.

“We’re a big fan of Bart’s work and we chose to print “Insectoid,” as it was the last design Bart submitted to Threadless. The money normally given to the artist for printing will go to Bart’s family to pay for funeral costs. We thank Bart for being such a devoted fan and such a talented member of this community.”

A group of harpo25’s friends have begun work on a website and book dedicated to his life and his art.

Buy A Shirt For Tigger

A couple of weeks ago I featured All For One Clothing, a brand that was started by animal enthusiast Brandon Hopkins. Sadly, one of his doggies passed away. To commemorate Tiggers life, he is having a sale at All For One Clothing. You can save 25% off your entire order by simply using the code “tigger” at checkout. All proceeds from this sale will go to charity in her name. 

Here are two tees that I dig from All For One Clothing!

Felix Sleeps

Such a cutie. If I could, I’d take her to watch Disney’s “I, Chihuahua” on opening night. She’ll have to wait for the DVD!
