Lion For A Day

The mantra on this T-Shirt is definitely one to live by. As the renown Australian physical therapist, Elizabeth Kenny, once put it, “It is better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.” Be the master of your own domain. Don’t hide, be yourself. Let the world hear your inner roar and kick those sheep bleats to the curb [As a side note, did you know that “bleat is the proper verb that you should use when describing the sound that a sheep makes].

Random Objects delivers yet another solid tee. And if you’re keeping tabs, this is the second sheep reference made on a Random Objects tee and the fourth animal themed Random Objects shirt. Pretty random stat for you that I thought I’d throw out.

“Why go through life just following the herd when you can be as daring and bold as a lion. Sure it is easier to be like the majority of people and be told what to think and do, but to think for oneself takes courage. Stop following the flock and be a lion!”

Lion For A Day is printed on an American Apparel 2001 shirt and is available now from Random Objects for $20 but you can save 10% off your entire order by sing the code “RANDOMOBJ” at checkout.

Here’s Looking At You, Kid

I normally do not blog about Threadless submissions mainly because I don’t like to be teased and I don’t like to be a teaser. I take that back, I actually enjoy teasing others, I just don’t like being teased with designs that might possibly never see the light of day as a bonafide T-Shirt.

Let’s face it, submitting a design to Threadless is like throwing your piece of art into a haystack filled with other, equally good, pieces of art, with the hope that the Threadless regulars (and staff) will see the glow in your artwork and vote with a 5$. Oh the coveted Threadless 5$. Your design also seemingly gets lost in the crowd a bit faster if you’re new to the Threadless scene. Lack in name recognition could be the only thing holding you back from seeing your little baby of a design earn you $2500 and T-Shirt design immortality.

Having said all of that, I’d like to introduce my friend, who goes by the name of Bunny Dojo in the webiverse. He is quite a skilled designer and has a very polished portfolio. He specializes in key art and logo design. He’s also pretty good at designing those covers that your DVD’s and Blu-ray discs come packaged in. Despite this, the world of competitive T-shirt designs contests is a different kind of beast and he knows it! So I am showing off his first Threadless submission, Here’s Looking At You, Kid, partially because he’s my friend, a little because I’ve been a big fan of his work for many years now, but mostly because he has a solid design that I truly believe is worthy of being printed at Threadless. Now go vote for it!

The world will always welcome lovers. As time goes b-a-a. Inspired by a love of “Casablanca” and the styling of ‘Glennz,’ this design is my first that felt worthy of submission to Threadless. I’m really happy with it, and I hope you will be too. -Bunny Dojo

Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing by Random Objects

This tee is called Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing and it’s the newest tee from Random Objects. Something about this design is so striking. The eyes on this are so haunting that I catch myself staring at them for much longer than I should! The design is cleverly based on an old Aesop fable about a clever wolf who disguises himself as a sheep to stalk its prey. Are you a wolf in sheep’s clothing? 

Pick up this tee for $20.00 from Random Objects today. It’s printed on an American Apparel blank and comes with a “mystery random object” and stickers!

Wold In Sheep's Clothing by Random Objects

A wolf found great difficulty in getting at the sheep owing to the vigilance of the shepherd and his dogs. But one day it found the skin of a sheep that had been flayed and thrown aside, so it put it on over its own pelt and strolled down among the sheep. The Lamb that belonged to the sheep, whose skin the Wolf was wearing, began to follow the Wolf in the Sheep’s clothing; so, leading the Lamb a little apart, he soon made a meal off her, and for some time he succeeded in deceiving the sheep, and enjoying hearty meals. Appearances are deceptive.
