Alien Graffiti T-shirt

Alien Graffiti T-Shirt – Pretty funny design of an alien spray painting some crop circles on the wall. (Although, if they aren’t in actually crops, what would they be called?) Let’s hope he doesn’t get caught, because illegal street art can carry stiff penalties.

Also, according to article 731.01, they can tack on another $250+ to this guy’s fines for public nudity. (Not to mention if he is in Singapore doing this, which would be really bad!) Anyway, this funny t-shirt is also over at

Chop Shop – So, I was just intrigued by looking through the (mostly sci-fi) designs at chopshopstore after Thomas sent a link to me. They do some cool stuff by making a larger design out of a collection of individual silhouettes in designs like, “wefab” (above) “51 Celebrity Robots” (w/glowing eyes & buttons) “54 celebrity vehicles,” and “34 Celebrated Vampires.”

The style kind of reminds me of those stock vector illustration collections you can get on sites like istockphoto, except in this case they all work together in a larger design. I think for this reason, everyone has a unique viewing experience, and relates uniquely to different parts.

If you are a Beatles fan, you’ll surely appreciate the design above, and might even get the irony of the “apple” shape, and the “Apple-esque” title of “WeFab.” (Remember that Apple Music vs. Apple Computers lawsuit?)

I also liked their “robots nofollow” t-shirt, which is probably understood only by people like myself that work with HTML.

Anyway, I found myself looking through the deigns trying to name as many of the “51 Celebrity Robots” as I could for some reason. I imagine that if you are standing at a party in someone’s kitchen wearing one of these shirts, you’ll find others doing the same!

Thanks to Ramsey for dropping me a line about his brilliant illustrations at Raz City Studios. I may have missed his cool Halloween themed monster t-shirt which was on sale at Shirt Punch for a day, but I definitely like his Christmas Carol / Sons of Anarchy sketch.

A must see for Trekkies is the hilarious Many Lives of Spock t-shirt above; envisioning how pop culture influenced Spock over the years. (available through Red Bubble)

Ramsey has a great blog which showcases not only his t-shirt designs, but his great comic book style illustrations and sketches. Check it out!

We have been getting more and more submissions lately, and I was looking at this particular submission on my phone and I knew I had to look more into it. Mixing vintage and futuristic designs and principles, Cuppa-T out of beautiful New Zeland has a great, unique theme going on. I love the military feel it has to it as well. By themselves, these themes aren’t original, but how Cuppa-T puts them together really makes it work and they are doing a great job of it.

The particular tee they submitted just came out on the 8th and its awesome. They call it Greetings From Mars. It depicts that classic 60’s style couple on a beach vacation, but in the future on Mars. Here is what Cuppa-T has to say about it:

Its an original composition formed based on lots of research on old postcard art, the silhouettes were actually referencing some pics of classic beach couple sunset scenes, which are where the fellas loud shirt and ladies flowers came from. We didn’t want to interfere with the beach romance feel to much so we didn’t suit them up, plus we figured by the time we can vacate to mars we’d probably have a great sun block.

Not only is the design great, but Cuppa-T shirts have nice hang tags and they have a nice tag on the bottom. They certainly don’t cut any corners here. The printing looks great too.

Most of Cuppa-T shirts sell for 59 NZD to 64 NZD, which translates to around $45 USD. Not exactly cheap. They say the reason for the high price is because they are a small, independent company that only prints limited runs. My only grind is that with the price they are asking, they don’t say what kind of shirt they print on – only that its 100% cotton. I would expect great quality for the asking price, but without the shirt in hand, its hard to say the quality of the print and shirt is worth the price. See what you think at their store here. Anyone have a Cuppa-T shirt and care to comment?


Vicious History

I don’t remember history much in school, because I was always doodling in the margins. But as I grow older ( :[ ), I realize just how exciting and relevant history can be. We were always taught a “one man history” where history was made all by one man. For example Christopher Columbus found the Americas, Alexander the Great created the largest empire, Napoleon the master military strategist was the great Emperor of France, etc. While this does make history easier to teach, it can also make it quite boring.

Chaz Matses created Vicious History with a mission to change that. “Many people feel that history is a boring subject and my goal is to give it a contemporary and interesting feel that speaks for itself on our shirts.” Looking through his store you will see many history, astronomy, and secret society/conspiracy inspired designs.

We specialize in contemporary apparel which incorporates a vast range of historical influences into its designs. Our company’s purpose is to create inventive and unique apparel that allows us to share our artistic vision with our customers.

Vicious History has already seen great success and a lot of their tees are selling out fast so pick up yours now. Most of Vicious History shirts are printed on American Apparel with custom screen printed tags. There is a reason these are selling so check out the above shirt and more at the store here.
