storm in a teacup t-shirt

Last week I posted this tee when it was on TeeFury and as usual I was bemoaning the way that you guys may have visited HYA several hours or days after it ceased to be available at the tee a day site. Fortunately, artist Ross Robinson has made the design available on POD site MySoti, yes, it’s not the bargain $9 it was last week, but at least you’ll be able to actually buy it rather than going “… wish I’d got that on TeeFury last week.”

Hokusai’s great wave… in a teacup

by Andy on March 2, 2010

hokusai t-shirt

This tee is at TeeFury, so there is a chance that by the time you read this unfortunately it won’t be available, which is the only problem I have with “tee a day” sites and why I don’t mentioned them much on HYA. If you’re after daily updates on those kind of sites, popculturetees and teemagnet will treat you well.

Regular readers will know that I have quite a large soft spot for Hokusai inspired designs, and I think that this is one of the finer examples that I’ve seen. At $11/$14 shipped (US/International) you can’t really go wrong.




There will never be enough tees of Hokusai’s The Great Wave, and this one has skulls on it!

Even though the design isn’t entirely related to it (thought there is more than a passing resemblance), I instantly liked this design because of the use of Hokusai as the background to the promo pics. That said, it is a good design in it’s own right, I really like that way that the wave almost looks like a hand preparing to grab the boat and drag down to the murky depths, and the print is a nice big size too, which is always good to see.

Namicon by Proteus Apparel

Well, I say that this design is by Proteus Apparel in the title, but I think it would be a lot more fair to say that it was by Hokusai (incidentally, HYA is the #1 result on Google for misspelling that name as Hokkusai), still, I do love to see that Great Wave at every opportunity (it’s the gelaskin on the back of my iPhone), and I really love the placement of the print on this tee… I would be interested to see where the print ends though, because the description calls it a “one-sided all over print” which is a little confusing, how can it be an all-over print if it’s on one side?
