Fun dinosaur themed t-shirts

My Favorite Dinosaur – As stated on the My Favorite Dinosaur site, these t-shirts were “created by people who often wear t-shirts and think Dinosaurs are awesome.” What a customer base! Everyone wears t-shirts and I’ve NEVER heard anyone say, “Meh, dinosaurs kinda suck.” Everyone loves dinosaurs!

The t-shirts are very simple and graphic, featuring a line drawing of each dinosaur and its name. The site features accompanying information on each dinosaur, like where and when it lived, specialized features and what the name means. There is even simple representation of how big it would be compared to an average human, which will remind you how incredibly terrifying these creatures must have been in the flesh. I think that it would be really neat to include at least some of the information on the back of the shirt. If you’re going rock a t-shirt with a freaking Iguanodon on it, why not educate the public on its awesomeness at the same time?

There are dozens of colors to pair with your favorite dinosaur, and you can even customize the text and color of your dinosaur, so the possibilities are endless. The sizes range from infant to toddler to adult, so the entire family can Walk the Dinosaur.

These t-shirts are simple and whimsical, and just plain fun. Check them out here.

Big Stone Head – Funny T-Shirts

Big Stone Head: As I’ve mentioned before, I love finding a hidden gem in the submissions to our t-shirt blog. Such is the case with Big Stone Head, the brainchild of Jory John & Avery Monsen.

Their designs are full of the kind of dry humor that I love to see on t-shirts, and work especially well as kids t-shirts. In fact, as I was looking at some of the shirts on their site, I called my wife into the room and said, “We have to get this for our kids!” These are the kind of shirts that will get you laughs at the next playgroup, and most of them are even appropriate for wearing to school.

Jory and Avery have taken a slightly twisted view of conventional kids’ themes like pirates, zoo animals, & dinosaurs, and made some great, chuckle-worthy designs out of them. In fact, I was reminded of the hugely popular recent children’s book (for adults), Go the F*ck to Sleep.”

The “All My Friends Are Dead” design immediately struck me as one of those homerun designs with a similar, viral potential as the “Go the F*ck to Sleep” Book. Actually, it looks like they have put out a couple of successful “All My Friends Are Dead” books, also filled with dry humor, satire, and irony. A quick google image search shows that there are knock-offs of the design out there, which is both flattering and annoying.

Next time you are at a loss of what to get your niece or nephew for their birthday, consider something from the Big Stone Head store!

Humorous T-Shirts from Sebastien Millon

You know, the great thing about designing t-shirts is that there are no limitations; so why not have fun with it? With all the designs out there, you really have to do something to distinguish yourself to get people’s attention.

That’s just what Sebastien Millon seems to be doing on his site & with his t-shirts for sale over on Etsy.

His simple cartoonish style works well with his often dark humor, creating some designs you have to look twice at. Kind of reminds of a parody on those hugely successful “Life is Good” designs.

While not all illustrations are dark, subjects like alcoholism and murder are perfect with these cute drawings, right!? (Personally, I’ve always wanted to see one of those happy little Care Bears brought to their knees with a serious meth addiction) The simple, handwritten font is a good match, too.

“This is the honey badger… watch it run in slow motion. It’s pretty bad-ass, look!”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (like a honey badger?) you’ve probably seen the hilarious youtube video called, “The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger.” The famous clip consists of 3 minutes of video showcasing the fearless honey badger, who apparently kick the asses of poisonous snakes, bees, jackals, & other deadly animals.

The thing that makes it funny, of course, is the addition of a new flamboyant narration. “Oh, the honey badgers are just craaaazy!” Anyway, these phenomenons that go viral and sweep the web are known as internet memes, and with over 18 million views, this honey badger video certainly qualifies.

These memes often spawn merchandise from designers or opportunists looking to cash in on these spikes of interest in a certain photo, video, or website. Not a bad idea, if you can get your design out quickly when one of these sweeps the web. If you have a google account, use their free google keyword tool to see just how many searches are being done for these specific phrases. Don’t have time to wait to appear in organic search? Consider using Google adwords to bid on clicks from a nickel each.

You can even find local memes to profit from. A couple of years ago the Phillies won the World Series, and everyone went crazy in my hometown of Philadelphia. After winning, 2nd baseman Chase Utley blurted out the phrase, “World phucking champions!” Within 24 hours, shirts bearing the phrase were being sold online, and I’m sure it was worth their time to create the design.

Next time you see a meme catch on, start to think if you can ride the momentum w/ a good t-shirt design. In the meantime, you can get your own Honey Badger t-shirt at noisebot, crazydog, or a number of other t-shirt sites online. View the actual honey badger video here.
