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.

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.

The Threadless Sketchbook

If you enjoyed the 76 Threadless Designs from Sketch To Print post then you will definitely be interested to know that the Threadless community has just released a Sketchbook containing classic Threadless designs. I say “Threadless community” because this really is a collaborative project that started with the Threadless blogging community. Here’s the full story:

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.

peliCAN: Help Restore The Gulf

Veteran Threadless designers, Ross Zietz and Frederik Wepener, have teamed up to deliver peliCAN, a T-Shirt that Threadless just released to help with the relief efforts in the Gulf of Mexico.

The shirt is unbelievably priced at just $10 with ALL proceeds going to the Gulf Restoration Network.

Let’s face it, BP has done and is still doing major damage to the Gulf with its ongoing oil leakage. Unlike other disasters, there’s not much that we can do to help the situation. It’s not like we can jump in, drop a bunch of paper towels into the Gulf with the hope that it will suck all the oil of there. Not going to happen. What we can do is help out with monetary donations so the experts can do their thing. The great part about picking up peliCAN from Threadless is that you’re helping the cause and getting an awesome shirt in the process.

Donate to the relief efforts with just $10 by picking up peliCAN from Threadless.

4 New Threadless X Griffin iPod Touch Cases

Threadless and Griffin have just released 4 new iPod Touch Cases, featuring 4 classic Threadless designs. The Gaming Revolution by Sean Mort is one of my favorite Threadless designs – ever. Space Needs Color by Alvaro Arteaga Sabaini looks absolutely stunning as an iPhone case design. Put The Needle On The Record was never a Threadless favorite of mine (maybe because of the raised ink used on the tee), but as an iPhone Case design, it just works.

Unlike previous Threadless X Griffin cases, the new batch is made specifically for the iPod Touch. If I had to guess as to why this is case, I would say that it has something to do with the rumors of a new iPhone being released sometime in early June.

The cases are available now from Griffin Technology for $34.99 a piece. Each of the T-Shirts are also available from Threadless for $18 (Space Needle is priced at $20).

Threadless X Giltman Limited Edition Tees

The Threadless Limited Edition Tee sale at Giltman has officially begun. We finally get to the see the full lineup (15 designs) and details of the Giltman Limited Editions. The designs chosen are indeed Threadless classics, including, Pandamonium, The Communist Party and Lions Are Smarter. Some of the desgins are also slightly modified from their original counterparts, including MP3, which includes just one of the three MP officers.

The Threadless X Giltman tees are printed on 50% Polyester, 25% Combed Cotton, 25% Rayon shirts. The colors are used are definitely uncharacteristic of Threadless. They are more of an earthy tone, so you’ll notice a lot of greys, blacks, and deep blues and reds.

The shocking part has got to be the price. The shirts are available today for $29 until May 5 at 6PM HST. The Limited Edition tees have a retail price of … gasp … $60. I am not sure if these will be available once the sale ends, but, I’d prefer not to pay $60 for one of these T-Shirts.

If you want to pick up one of these Giltman X Threadless Limited Edition T-Shirts, then you have to register first at Giltman and I’ve got invitations that you can use (Giltman is by invite only). Also, when you register with the invite, you get an $10 gift voucher (bringing the price of the shirt down to $19) that you can use on your Threadless tee or anything else at Giltman.
