You can file this under the category labeled bizarre. Yu Kobayashi is a Japanese actress that is best known for her voice, which has appeared in video games such as Ar tonelico III, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon and the feature film adaptation of Animal Crossing. What’s bizarre is that she decided to create some scribbles that look like they came from someone who was high on acid. And the worst part is that this isn’t a joke product, Kobayashi is actually selling her design in tote and T-Shirt form. If you’re crazy enough to be even remotely interested in this, then you deserve to spend the $63 that it will cost you to own these two products.
Would you buy this T-Shirt/Tote combination pack? Would you wear this T-Shirt?
Here’s a little sneak peek of what I’ve got in store for you for (hopefully) Day 16′s Project365. You might be able to figure out what it is based on its shape. I’m not gonna tell you exactly what it is right now, but you’ll find out soon enough! Finally I get to use scissors again! Think you know what it is? Leave a comment!
It all started when MurrayMullet (Phil Jones) posted a blog on the Threadless forum, asking alumni for sketches of their printed designs. To quote the blog, “They can be just the idea, initial attempt or napkin drawings.”
The blog blew up and people were posting “like crazy and sh!t,” says speedyjvw (Joe Van Wetering). In fact, it got so bonkers, another Threadless dood, Ian Lieno thought it would be cool to compile all of this into a book, with ALL of the funds going towards Bloggerraiser. What’s Bloggerraiser? Well, for the n00bs, its an annual Threadless blogger-driven fundraiser that brings folks from all over to our annual meet-up in September, aka our Family Reunion.
The book is an amazing compilation of original sketches of over 120 Threadless shirts from 66 different artists, with the forward written by Mr. Jake Nickell himself. Pick up the book over on Lulu for $19.99. Awesome job, Ian, and thanks to all who contributed!
The Threadless Sketchbook is available in paperback form and is 120 pages long. You can purchase the Sketchbook from Lulu for $19.99.

The Problem by Ben Chlapek is the featured September tee from monthly T-Shirt site, 200 Nipples. Have I mentioned how much I love the name of the site? Well, I do. If you’re familiar with 200 Nipples then you know the deal: 100 shirts are printed, and are sold based on the shirt number. So, if you decide to buy shirt number 28 you’ll pay $28. If you’re the unlucky bastard who decides to wait till the 30th of the month then you might end up paying $100 for tee number 100.
As far as the shirt: I love it! I used to (and still at times do) sketch weird and random sayings in my notebook. What else to do when you’re bored in lecture? What kinds of things would you sketch in your notebook while you were bored in class?
