100 Anthropomorphic tees (1-50)

Anthropomorphism is huge when it comes to tee design, especially on design-competitions like Threadless and Split The Atom. I guess people just like seeing animals and inanimate objects being put into human situations, or maybe a jar of mayonnaise is easier to draw than people…

I realise that despite the broadness of anthropomorphism as a defined term (pretty much anything that isn’t human acting with human qualities or traits), some of these tees are fairly questionable as to whether they are actually anthropomorphic or merely drawn in a way that makes them appear that like that. But hey, why argue semantics when there’s great looking tees to look at!

The 100 tees have been split into two posts because 100 in the list would just be far too long of a page.

(Please note that some of these tees, especially the ones from Threadless, may have sold out between the time of me writing this and you reading it)

*Update* If you’re on the hunt for long lists of t-shirts, check out this huge collection of t-shirt lists (from lots of different sites, not just this one), or the lists category. Also, if you enjoyed this post, it would be very much appreciated it if you mentioned it on twitter, facebook, or another other form of social media like digg, stumbleupon or delicious.
