Pop-culture t-shirt design extraordinaire Ian Leino has a load of his older stock available in his shop for just $12 a piece. Stock is limited and when they’re gone, they’re gone, so go and grab a bargain now.


may the fez be with you t-shirt

Some say that there is a power that flows through the universe, binding the galaxies together and keeping all things in harmony. Others know this to be true, and know that that power is actually a mad man with a box. Doctor Who and Star Wars collide in this 6-color design.

Indeed, the Fez is strong with this one!

You know what, I’ve never seen an episode of the ‘new’ Doctor Who, I keep menaing to check it out, but it just doesn’t really appeal to me, and there always seems to be something else on that I want to watch, but through t-shirts I have learned that the Fez is something of a big deal, even if I don’t turly understand what relevance it has, or if it helps this shirt ‘make sense’. Still, it’s excellent artwork as usual from Ian, even if the concept doesn’t grab me personally I can always respect his level of talent.

Costiness=$20 Buy it from Ian Leino and be sure to check out the rest of his store for more Star Wars and Doctor Who t-shirts

This is actually quite old news, but that’s no reason to not mention it, because pop-culture design maestro Ian Leino recently launched a brand new (and excellent) store that is really clean and shows off his designs well. I’m impressed, it’s clear that a lot of work has gone into the store and hopefully Ian will see a lot of pay-off from it.

Along with the new store Ian has released a new tee, “Licensed to Shoot First” mashing up Han Solo with the iconic ‘down-the-barrel’ shot seen at the end of Bond films. Well, it was at the end of Skyfall, but for some reason I remember it being at the start of previous films, but I’m no expert so maybe it switches around. Either way, the artwork is really nicely done, this isn’t just some simple mashup tee made to make a quick buck, much like the store design itself there has clearly been a lot of effort into this design.


ian leino coupon code

On my birthday I tend to think about one person, me, but apparently not everyone is like that, some people, like Ian Leino, are actually pretty nice and actually give out gifts rather than expect them. By ‘give gifts’ I mean he’s giving you guys a 20% off coupon code that is good for anything in store. Happy birthday, Ian!


masseffect t-shirt

I haven’t played Mass Effect so I have no idea what this TeeFury shirt is about.

Y’know, I’m not entirely sure what the reference is on this Shirt.Woot design.

Ian Leino delivers an awesome compilation of 33 weapons used by comic book heroes at RIPT (also available in his shop, and he’s running a giveaway on Facebook, Twitter & Tumblr too).

ian leino t-shirt sale

Pop culture t-shirt design expert Ian Leino has a sale going on in his store from now until March 5th (that’s Monday) in which all of his tees are $15 a piece. He’s got a lot of popular designs so the sale is definitely worth checking out.


comic book heroes t-shirt

Collage shirts are always fun, every time you wear them someone wants to try and work out every item on the design, and Ian Leino has kicked it up a notch by releasing a pair of collage shirts, one for heroes and one for villains. The designs are inspired by comic books, which means that I don’t recognise everything, but there’s definitely a few things in there iconic enough for everyone to recognise.

Ian is also running a few promos in conjunction with the release, I could tell you about them, but I think he did a pretty good job of it in his e-mail.

To celebrate the release of these two designs, now through Feb 20th you can save $5 when you buy both shirts using coupon codeSHAZAM“, and I’m also running a contest to see whether the Heroes or Villains fans are more dominant. For whichever side has more pre-orders, everyone who ordered that shirt will get a free, mysterious “Golden Ticket” along with their order which is good for $5, $10, $20 or even $50 credit to my shop! (Pro tip: Those who pre-order both shirts will be guaranteed to get a “Golden Ticket” with their order.)

I’ve also posted full details about the giveaway and coupon in this blog post and on the Contests and Giveaways page in my shop (where you can also get a real-time update on which ‘team’ is winning!).


code of arms t-shirt

Ian Leino had this design up on Shirt.Woot during the holidays, meaning that I missed it during the break, but it’s clearly far too good to receive no HYA-love, and since Ian e-mailed to remind me that it still exists and is still available at Shirt.Woot for $15 with free US shipping and $5 international shipping.


doctor who seuss t-shirt

Really nice mashup from Ian Leino.

Daily Tee Roundup October 6th

by Andy on October 6, 2011

Star Trek red shirts warning

Fun shirt from Ian Leino at TeeFury, but the name of the design “he’s dead, Jim” only conjures up a vision of one man who passed away today, and he’s not called Jim.

Nowhere Bad dig further and bring a design out of the Star Wars mine and out into the fresh air.

I don’t really get why the tanks are in halftone but Gandalf is a solid colour? Nice try,, but it’s just not working for me today.

I’m sure that there is a lot of people that will like today’s Shirt.Woot design, but I can’t count myself amongst them.

I must admit that I’ve never read ‘A light in the Attic’ and thus the reference is somewhat lost on me, but that typework looks awfully awkward to me, which is a pity because the graphic itself is really well done.

I think that The Yetee need an award for the most niche shirt of the week. Locane is a fictional poison used in The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous t-shirt from Loviu today, and a nice little nod to Beatles fans in there too.

This is the insaneetee deal at Uneetee today, dropping from $26.99 to $14.99, pretty sweet deal.

I had high hopes for 24tee after first showing them yesterday, but even with their hearts in the right place (as I’m sure they are), I find the notion of a Steve Jobs t-shirt to be in poor taste and I assume I’m not alone. That said, I am quite glad that I can feature him on the blog in some way, since I still have a Performa 450 in the attic (turns out my parents were ahead of their time), and I am inseparable from my iPhone.


archer t-shirt at ript apparel

I think I watched the first episode of Archer and decided it wasn’t really worth the time for me to download it (it’s not shown on British TV), but apparently a lot of people are fans, judging by the reaction to this shirt by Ian Leino on RIPT today.

Ian doesn’t actually have any related goodies in his own shop, but you can get 15% off your order there today with the coupon code DangerZone1. After today (since RIPT only sell things for a day at the time) the design will be available on Redbubble via Ian’s Store there.

$15 t-shirt sale in Ian Leino’s Store

by Andy on July 12, 2011

ian leino sale

If you want an excellently designed pop culture shirt then Ian Leino is your man. Ignore the date at the top of the infographic, Ian has extended the sale until Friday because he felt that it was all a bit short notice (when it was running over the weekend) and people didn’t get much of a chance to take advantage of the cheapness.


the empire strikes out t-shirt

I wonder how often a week goes by that I don’t mention a Star Wars t-shirt, we’re on two this week at least, I’m not even that big of a fan!

Ian Leino has really stepped up a gear in terms of his releases recently, both on daily tee sites and in his own store, the latter makes it seem to me as if business is going well for him, so hopefully that means we’ll be seeing more from him soon.

The above design is available on RIPT right now and for the next 18 hours (at the time this post goes live) for $10 as a tee, $38 as a hoodie, $15 in kids sizes, and if you want your baby to see the dark side onesies are $18 (I wonder how many of those RIPT sell a day?). If you catch this post after the design has entered the graveyard at RIPT, fear not, Ian has got the design in his store too, printed on a 3/4 sleeve raglan shirt which I think looks pretty good. The shirt is $19 but you can get 10% off with the coupon code VADER10 until midnight tonight, and I would presume that coupon works store-wide and not just on this design.

Ian is also running a giveaway of magnets featuring this design to help promote the shirt, check out his blog for how to participate in the competition.

Portal 2 t-shirt by Ian Leino at TeeFury

by Andy on April 19, 2011

portal 2 t-shirt

I can only imagine that it was a complete coincidence that this t-shirt went up on TeeFury today…

I gave Portal a go late last year when it was free on Steam, and I didn’t finish it, but I had a lot of fun for a few hours playing it. It’s a really interesting game, if you’re after something that tests your mind more than your trigger finger then it’s definitely worth taking a look at. I don’t know if you need to have played the original Portal to enjoy the new version that was released today, but it might help for the background to the story. This is a tee blog though, I’m sure that there are better places to get gaming insight.

If you understand the reference in this tee, then I’m sure you’ll like it (and that’s no lie!), which is why I’m not really going to mention the shirt in this post (what do you think this is? A t-shirt blog!?). As usual design supremo Ian Leino is going all out on his promotion efforts. The tee is for sale today on TeeFury, and it is also available at his own shop (though it is more expensive than the TeeFury version) and will remain there, so if you’ve seen this post too late for the TeeFury version but really, really like the tee then you have nothing to fear, you’ll probably still able to get it. Ian is also giving away temporary tattoos of the design on his Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook pages, which is pretty ,cool, head over to his blog to find out all about that.


star wars han solo blaster t-shirt

Inspired by the classic Han Solo quote “Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.” this design collects famous guns, blasters, disintigrators, rayguns and pulse pistols from 26 different movies and television shows (with a limit of just one weapon per franchise). Several of these created universes have a wealth of awesome weaponry so I’ve done my best to choose what I felt was the most iconic single weapon from each one.

Usually when Ian releases a new design, it is available on TeeFury one day, then shows up in his own store the next, so that it can have the immediate exposure that TeeFury provides, and then be given a much longer lifespan in his own store. I’d like to see more artists following suit, but I can understand how it’s not always feasible.

Ian will be giving away the shirt for free to one lucky winner on March 31st, so click through if you’re interested.

Costiness-$19 Buy it from Ian Leino’s store


twitter fail whale t-shirt

Ian is a very eloquent man, so I’ll let him explain the this tee:

It’s based on the Twitter “Fail Whale” and vintage nautically-themed beer label designs, and I’ve illustrated it using the same classic scratchboard technique that I employed for my popular “Polar Beer” design. It will be for sale at TeeFury on Wednesday, Feb 23rd for just $10, and is also available through my own shop hand-screened on American Apparel for $18.

I’ve also reworked the graphic and had it printed on both pint glasses and can koozies, both of which are also available in my shop.

Once again to coincide with the TeeFury print, I’ll be running a coupon code (FailWhale15) good for 15% off of your total order from my shop and will also be giving away goodies through both Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr (with more details available on my blog – where you can also find photos and descriptions of the process behind this design).


rocky horror t-shirt

Ian Leino is a frequent name to come up at TeeFury because he’s a master of pop culture designs. He’s also a frequent name to come up on HYA because he really tries to promote his days on TeeFury with promos in his own store, and because he writes nice e-mails to me explaining the design:

It’s a fan-favorite called “Time Warp” and it shows the characters from some of my favorite time travel movies illustrating the dance steps to the “Time Warp” dance from “Rocky Horror” in a classic infographic style. It’s just $9 at TeeFury on Monday, or if you’d prefer it hand screened on American Apparel, it will be available in my shop shortly after.

Once again to coincide with the TeeFury print, I’ll be running a coupon code (FluxCapacitor) good for 15% off of your total order from my shop and will also be giving away goodies through both Facebook and Twitter (with more details available on my blog).

Thanks for making it easy for me to write this post Ian (especially as I’m on a work-related road trip over the next couple of days, Andy + van = lack of time to write posts).


firefly t-shirt

I watched Serenity while back and then more recently, and it’s good, but to be honest I don’t really get all the hubbub about Firefly & Serenity, and frankly I already watch more TV than I should so I probably won’t ever find the time to understand it, but that doesn’t stop me enjoying this tee on an entirely superficial basis.

It’s designed by Ian Leino, so you know it’s gonna be good, and it will be on sale at TeeFury in a couple of hours (if I’ve got my timezones right). As ever he’s made it into more of an event than just selling a tee, so I’m just going to copy/paste part of the e-mail that he sent me:

I wanted to let you know that I have a new design (based on the show Firefly) coming out, and I thought it was something your readers would really like. This Friday, December 10th, it will be on a shirt at TeeFury (printed on a sand colored shirt), then the day after it will be available through my own shop (printed on silver). I’ve also had it printed on both pint glasses and sake glasses which are also in my shop.

Once again to coincide with the TeeFury print, I’ll be running a coupon code for 15% your total order from my shop (THISLAND) and will also be giving away a free sake glass though both Facebook and Twitter (with more details available on my blog).


doctor who t-shirt

I am in no way a fan of Doctor Who, but even I must admit that this piece of work from Ian Leino is something special. I almost forgot to post it after Ian e-mailed me a preview last week, but you’ve still got a few hours to get in on the action. In celebration of being on TeeFury with this design, Ian has posted a walkthrough of the design process on his blog, along with a competition to giveaway some shirts to people that help promote the design on Facebook and Twitter. As if that weren’t enough, you can use the coupon code WHOSWHO in Ian’s own shop to receive 15% off your order.


Ian Leino Smells Something Fishy at TeeFury

by Andy on October 26, 2010

Post image for Ian Leino Smells Something Fishy at TeeFury

Ian Leino is a great designer, so it’s no surprise that he’s served up something tasty for his day on TeeFury. My favourite TeeFurydesigns tend to be the pop culture mashup ones, and this clearly has that by the bucket full. To celebrate the shirt Ian is also offering 15% off in his own shop (which has some cool tee and other paraphenalia in it) wth the coupon code BLUEPLATE for today only. At the time of posting you’ve got 11 hours to pick up this shirt before it’s gone forever/sold to another company or put on a POD site. If you’re an inquisitive kind of soul, Ian has posted a walkthrough of the design porcess on his blog.
