daleks

I went down the rabbit hole a bit with this shirt, and still I have no good information.

I spotted this Salvador Dalek shirt first on this Tumblr, and know what Doctor Who fans you guys are I decided to try and find out where to buy it.
The image looked like it was taken at a market or on a stall of some kind (based on the metal frame the shirts are stuck too), which didn’t give me much of a clue, but did make me feel a bit like Sherlock. I then Googled Salvador Dalek and came up with many worse shirts, until I came across this eBay auction selling the design with the seller claiming to have bought it at a British beer festival, it being too big for him, so he’s selling it.

I then went back to the original Tumblr and realised that the image was linked to Imgur, the popular photo service that was built by a Redditor and is used by many Redditors. This then led me back to the original thread on Reddit which was started by the person who took the picture, stating that it was seen at the Cambridge Beer Festival (where more than 100,000 pints were drank last week). Another commenter mentioned that they’d bought it at the Brighton Beer Festival last year, so I assume that means the sellers travel around different festivals selling shirts, which hopefully means that they might have a web presence of some kind.

Alas, that is where the trail ends, I could gain any more info about the name of the company selling them, so I’m throwing the net a bit wider and involving you guys on the off chance that one of you has seen the shirt being sold somewhere or know the designer/company.

Daily Tees & News for November 8th

mars university futurama t-shirt

Nice to see more Futurama shirts becoming available, even if it’s just for a day at TeeFury.


Great collage shirt from Qwertee today, one for children of the 80s I think.


Another cool design from Tilteed, but of course it is also an old design, I’d love to know what’s happening there and why we haven’t seen new shirts for so long, hopefully this isn’t the beginning of the end for Tilteed.


Whilst I don’t entirely understand the meaning of the bird painting itself, I do like the artwork today at Shirt.Woot.


Quite a few of the RIPT commenters are chiming in to say that they won’t buy this shirt because it will be out of date in a year, fair point.


It’s pretty rare that you get a shirt that draws from Picasso and Star Wars, bravo The Yetee, bravo.


Nope. I’m going to need someone to explain the reference to me on this 24tee shirt.


Gotta say I’m not in love with the Mario artwork at TeeRaiders today, sorry.


Nice to see this design at Loviu again.


Shirt Punch are exploring that oft-neglected crossover of Doctor Who and Wizard of Oz today.


The straightforwardly named Tshirt Contest have opened their first contest with a call for entries of beer designs.


‘War Torn’ is the Shirt Of The Day at DBH.


Delorean Dashboard is the deal of the day at BustedTees. $11 instead of $20.


I don’t want to complain too much about something that’s a 2 year old issue, but I saw it again and it annoyed me again. Total Film published a list of 100 Star Wars t-shirts in 2009 that I feel is clearly heavily inspired by my list of 202 Star Wars t-shirts. That post took me the better part of 25 hours work, work that they haven’t acknowledged in their list (they have picked all the same shirts as I did, and in many cases they’re listed in the same order. I’m of no doubt that Total Film have earned money from that post (they have ads, and they’re on the first page of Google for the search ‘Star Wars t-shirts’), but all I want from them is acknowledgement that I did the research for their article, and an apology for using my work without permission. If any of you would like to leave a comment on their article or tweet them @totalfilm regarding the issue I’d appreciate it.


Mashable have a short list of “4 Essential Facebook Page Apps to Improve Communication With Fans” that I think will be of use to brand owners.


New shirt today from A Better Tomorrow.


Javaboi Industries have a Steve Jobs tribute shirt. Frankly, I don’t care for the shirt, it’s just not for me, but I can understand why people would look up to Steve Jobs, and it’s cool that Javaboi are donating to charity with the sales from the shirt, especially as they are a brand that has unfortunately had far too many experiences with cancer.


RedBubble artist Tom Trager has released the above ‘Dalek Pest Exterminations’ Doctor Who shirt for £15.99, which I’ve now added to the Doctor Who list.


You can get an extra 15% off at PLNDR with the coupon HUSH15 provided you spend $50+.


Use the coupon code TRIPLE11 to get 20% off your order at Karmaloop from now until midnight (EST) on November 11th.


I’ve opened up a couple of new advertising spaces for your perusal (footer & sidebar skyscraper left). Don’t worry, this isn’t yet more ads on HYA, I’ve converted the two ads that had Google AdSense on them to regular ads (that are backfilled with AdSense at the moment, confused?). They’re on a CPM basis, meaning you only pay for what you want and I’ve made it possible to buy just a couple of thousand pageviews at a time, meaning you can dip your toe in the water advertising on HYA for just a couple of dollars. This also means that we could have hundreds of people advertising on HYA, which I think would be pretty cool.


Unestablish has opened for business, they seem to have some pretty cool higher-end looking clothing.




Counter Balance Clothing (who I hadn’t heard of before) released a big new Fall collection a few days ago, with that many new shirts you guys must be able to find something you like in there.


Time for me to feel bad again, Monstros Apparel have been running a Kickstarter Project for the past month, and now that I finally get around to properly checking out their e-mail the Kickstarter has got 3 days to go and still needs about $2,000 to be funded. I know that HYA probably doesn’t have the readership to give this guy $2,000 but I think there are probably a few of you out there that would have pledged for one of his shirts.

dalek doctor who t-shirt

I’m sure that Doctor Who designs weren’t this popular even a year ago, that show really has exploded in popularity (with a lot of that growth coming in the US).

From $10 today at RIPT
