One of my favorite designers and t-shirt brands is currently having a sale at Fab. For the next 3 days, you can grab any or all of Colus’ beautiful black & white tees for only $18. (They’re usually $26) I own all but two of them, so I can definitely attest to their awesomeness. Big, bold, and beautiful prints on super soft American Apparel shirts.

Colus Havenga, one of my personal favorite t-shirt designers and brands, just added some jewelry to his line. Two necklaces are now available at for $20 each. “rune” and “flora” are simple yet bold. Laser cut from acrylic plastic and hung from a long chain, they’re a great addition to any collection.

Post image for brand new design from Colus Havenga – “hunter”

“black and white. no convention. no visual trickery. this is colus.”

Colus has quickly become one of my favorite designers and t-shirt brands over the last few months. The simplicity yet boldness of his illustrations really caught my attention. I bought 4 of the 7 shirts he originally had available with my first purchase and have since ordered every product he’s put out. I’m happy to announce the release of his newest design, “hunter”. Third of the white on black and ninth of the total shirts, “hunter” marks the 10th product Colus has released. The non-shirt item being a print of his “wise owl” design.

With high quality prints on American Apparel shirts, I highly recommend picking up one of these original designs. You will not be disappointed.

All Colus tees are available for $26 each at

Black and white loving Colus have just dropped their latest shirt and it ties in with a lot of their previous work in terms of style, and of course it sticks to their usual colourway.

There seem to be quite a few brands diversifying their portfolios at the moment and releasing prints, and I’m all for it, I often see t-shirts that are ‘art on a t-shirt’ rather that ‘t-shirt art’ so it’s hardly a surprise that designers are turning their popular t-shirts into other items. Hell, I even had posters printed upp and they’re in the HYA store, though I must admit they aren’t selling particularly well (don’t you love me!?).

Colus have released their most popular tee in the form of a limited edition (50 pieces total) 18×24 inch screenprinted print of ‘Wise Owl’, and I think it looks super, I can imagine it framed on my wall and at fifteen bucks it’s pretty reasonable too.

“Amour De Soi” t-shirt by Colus

colus havenga t-shirt

I know it’s always a bit awkward when I write about brands that also happen to be advertisers on HYA, but I’m proud to have Colus as an advertiser because they’ve got some great shirts that I would be posting about whether they were helping to keep my bank account happy or not, and this latest release is no exception.

Colus has some cool t-shirts

by Andy on April 13, 2011

I’ve been sleeping on the e-mail I got from Colus for way too long, which is unfair on both them and you because they’ve got some cool shirts. The designer (who I think is actually called Colus, is that a name?) hails from South Africa but now resides in San Diego, and I think that you can see an ever so slight hint of stereotypically African style in the designs because of that. They’re all black & white (you’ll find the rest in the gallery), which certainly goes a long way to making this first release look like a cohesive collection. I was going to say “there’s a lot of symbolism” like a hungover philosophy student trying to BS through a presentation, but if you want to get a bit deeper “Colus explores themes from morality to mortality with bold, contrast rich works with a symbolic tone leaving questions unanswered.” Tees are all $30 a pop and you can pick them up at
