“I’m Gaming Tonight” t-shirt

by Andy on June 13, 2016


Being a massive pop culture enthusiast since I was a kid, I wanted to make a T-shirt that somehow captured the beauty of the nostalgia I had growing up. Sega being my earliest memory of a console and Nintendo Entertainment System being something I became fascinated with much later in life, the overall minimalism of the shirt gives enough information to support the retro text and game controller logo making for a truly mashing of brands and self aware identity.

Andy: This would probably work a lot better on a colour other than white. On white it makes it look cheaper than it is, and let’s be honest, gamers are probably more likely to wear a darker coloured shirt (I have no evidence for that, just intuition). Obviously with it being a RedBubble design you can pick the colour yourself, but there are only so many colours that would with a black print. I’m not so sure about the typeface that has been chosen either, yes, it’s got retro charm to it, but is it a bit too obvious of a choice for the font?

For those people who “Oh whale” on Mondays… or just love whales in general. :) This idea is based on people’s opinons and interests and I consider and the design to incoorperate these ideas. This is one of the end products that everyone agree on. This is simple and very comfortable which most people complimented on.

Made in: United States

Avaliable colours: light pink, light blue, pink, blue, light grey, grey, dark grey

Andy: I’m only sharing this one because they did a good job on the mockups, otherwise, it’s not really my cup of tea.

Introducing TURBOLUV

by Andy on June 9, 2016



TURBOLUV is an underground streetwear brand that centers on cool retro inspired t-shirts. Founded in mid-2015 by designer/artist Pedro Molina aka Sushilove, the brand has already established a worldwide following.

Being a graphic designer in the apparel industry for over ten years, my dream has always been creating my own clothing brand to have the freedom to release the kind of t-shirts I’ve always loved. Being an 80’s kid have influenced me a lot in my art, and inspired by sci-fi, videogames and comic books I wanted to design streetwear with a retro touch.

Today TURBOLUV is a reality, and my mission is as simple as delivering cool t-shirts to all the dreamers in this universe.

The current line consists of screenprinted t-shirts and sublimation allover t-shirts.

Andy: I just don’t think I’m cool enough to wear shirts this ironic, but I still think they’re pretty neat.

Are you ready to rebel?!

by Andy on June 9, 2016


I often question myself ‘Where are all the rebels these days?’ – I grew up in a punk, skateboard and graffiti society and anarchy was everywhere; Nowadays everything is retro hipster, sleek and pretty, everything looks the same. So I came up with this concept/design to blend in with that exact vibe but hid a little rebellion into it. I think the world needs more rebels. For no reason really, thats the point. I’d like to have more mavericks joining me in fighting the ‘dime a dozen’ this world has become.

Provo-King clothing is a niche I like to refer too as ‘Undercover Rebellious’ or ‘Rebellicious’ or you may even call it ‘hipster rebellion’. In every design I try to create a fun and/or provoking silent scream that says something, without you really saying it.

Andy: It’s a phrase we’ve all heard before so I do wonder if it’s almost becoming cliche, but I do like the typework and the items look good.

4 OAK Apparel

by Andy on June 7, 2016



Four suits brought together to make one logo. The representation of love, luck, wealth and class. Four oak embodies all these themes within the designs along with the inspirations and empowering messages they bring. A brand that focuses on exclusivity and premium quality. 4 O. A. K. is an acronym that stands for Four Of A Kind. It is a direct reflection of our logo. We are not just another clothing line or a bunch of designs massed together. Every design is in one way shape or form related to any of these suits. Some are easy to tell and others require a bit more thinking.

Andy: Starting a brand with a heavy lean on logo shirts is a gamble unless you have a good group of fans to help support you early on, but I do like some of these shirts so hopefully they’ll have appeal beyond their established friends/family and help with growth.

Minnesota Thibodeau

by Andy on June 3, 2016

Had to flip this for my guy Thibs, a true fallen Chicago Soldier. Took the Bulls to the playoffs every year and not surprisingly after he got the axe, the team completely fell apart.

Gonna pretty much have to low key be a Minnesota fan until they burn GarPax’s office down.

25% off coupon code HARDINTHEPAINT

Andy: I have no idea who that guys is, but I imagine that this will appeal to fans.

BRAND NEW TEES – BY THE GOOD UNION

by Andy on June 2, 2016



We are excited to release a couple of brand new tees for the summer. SMITH X AWL. & SIDE HUSTLE CO. The concept behind Smith x Awl is for the person who produces superior craftsmanship & Awl are the tools use to make it. This t-shirt is design for the person who love designs with blacksmith style craftsmanship.

SIDE HUSTLE CO. TEE – Our belief is every dream is birthed from a side hustle. We created a tee that helps remind us that all things endeavored start out small/side hustle. The Side Hustle Co. t-shirt design is custom embroidered stitched to give that unique craftsmanship style. Our goal was to create real world industrial style t-shirts. Lastly each shirt will come package in a 10×14 inch drawstring burlap bag. For a limited time 10% discount use code: smithxawl10 & sidehustleco10 @ check out.

Andy: A real lesson from these designs in how keeping it simple is often a good idea..

Our passion for creating the “Your Hometown T” line of unique, fun and really comfortable t-shirts, is build around our commitment to allow others to join us in celebrating and paying respect for all those special memories, personal bonds and emotional ties we all hold so near and dear for that special place each of us calls our Hometown.

For the majority of us, the place we grow up in, grow older in, or grow a family in, leaves us with special bonds, relationships, and memories, all compiled through experiences over the years, with the result being an emotional tie as well as a sense of pride in it.

If you are one of those like minded people, who share with us in the respect and appreciation of the people, memories, and experiences for the place you grew up in, moved to and planted deep and strong roots in, or both, – Welcome to the celebration of the place you call Hometown.

Andy: Maybe it’s just because my recent experience of location-based tees is 50 States Apparel who have some amazing designs that fit right in with my style, but I feel like these are leaning pretty hard n you having roots with the location, rather than having a bit broader appeal to people like me that aren’t from the area but might like to buy a shirt based on a place that I like anyway. That said, there are some cool designs on their site that I like despite having no association with the locations.
