Post image for WeLoveFine & Cheezburger Present the “I Can Has Cats” T-Shirt Design Contest!

It kind of amazes me that this is a thing, but when you consider that I spend all day writing about t-shirts and looking at camera straps (Rigu!) then I guess that it isn’t that weird. However, if I were an artist I’m not entirely sure I’d want a cat, and a grumpy cat at that, deciding who gets awarded the prizes. Here’s all the details:

They are either your adorable, easygoing non-descript house pet… or they are our fluffy overlords who have taken over the internet, and soon, THE WORLD! Well, maybe, but we sure know which we would bet on, which is why we decided to launch our latest themed design contest on all those crazy CATS! Whether they are part of’s extensive (and hilarious) LOLCats archive, or a regular staple on your Tumblr feed, or an actual silly, awesome cat that belongs to YOU (and totally sits on your laptop every time you’re trying to work. Maaan, come on!) – take inspiration from the feline phenomenon and show us your most outstanding cat-based artwork! It can be funny, it can be just plain rad… it can feature kittens, old cats, fat cats, hairless cats, munchkin cats…. cats with frickin’ LASERS shooting out of their eyes! Anything your imagination can come up with, it could win you up to $2,500 and the chance to have your tee added to WeLoveFine’s shop! We and our pals at Cheezburger can’t wait to see what you all come up with, so go for it. From here until the winners’ announcement, every day is CATURDAY!

it's a trap star wars t-shirt

Some really impressive winner from the Star Wars design competition that Mighty Fine held recently. All the shirts (and 5 more, but I wasn’t going to put 10 pics up there) are available in mens and women’s sies for the usual price of $25 a piece.


star wars asteroids t-shirt

Being the tee geek that I am the thing which I find extra interesting about these three Star Wars t-shirts from Super7 is that they’re produced in conjunction with Mighty Fine, which means that you need have no guilty qualms, these are an officially licensed garment. Very cool designs, and all original concepts as far as I’m aware. They will first be on sale to the hordes at Comic Con this weekend (at booth #4729), but I presume that they’ll make their way online soon enough.

prometheus t-shirts

I voiced my disappointment with the Prometheus shirts in the first release at, but I think this latest batch is a definite improvement.

bert & ernie mario 8-bit t-shirt

Rapidly becoming one of my favourite pop culture t-shirt companies, have introduced a gaming section to their store and added a few new designs in the process. I’m not entirely sure if the Bert & Ernie Mario-themed design above is new, but there was no way that I wasn’t going to show it to you guys.


official avengers t-shirt

Very impressive lineup of winners from the collaborative contest with Marvel to celebrate the upcoming Avengers film. I watched Thor at the weekend and enjoyed it a lot more than I expected so I’m looking forward to what I presume to be the blockbuster ‘event’ of the Summer movie season.

There’s some really nice shirts amongst the winners here (with the grand prize winner being seen at the top of the post), there’s nothing particualrly outrageous or revolutionary but they all use the source material well and each shirt offers something different, which I’m sure isn’t a coincidence.

They’re all available now at

furby t-shirts at

I never really got into the whole Furby thing the first time around, it was one of those phenomenons that thankfully I was too old for and didn’t cause my parents to have to hunt up and down the country trying to find a toy at Christmas (it was the massive Christmas toy at one point, right?). Apparently, enough time has now passed that people can be nostalgic about the little bundle of fur, so have released a range of t-shirts (which will be growing) dedicated to Furbies. As you’d imagine, I won’t be ordering one, but what about the rest of you?

darth vader holding up the death star on his shoulders

It’s unusual to find a Star Wars concept that hasn’t been done to death, but Chris Kawagiwa seems to have managed it. Cool to see the process of creating the design too.

steampunk rogue x-men t-shirt

I promise that I didn’t intend for this to turn into Star Wars weekend on HYA, it just turned out that way when I was looking through the e-mails and spotted quite a few t-shirts I liked. Then again, a lot of HYAs popularity has been built upon a basis of posting Star Wars tees so I’m sure you guys won’t complain, especially since I’ve thrown a few other subjects into the mist over the weekend and in this post (that steampunk Rogue shirt being particularly nice). Unusually for HYA I’ve gone to the effort of linking each picture to the product page (except for the Rogue one due to a quirk in the HYA media process_.

scott pilgrim t-shirt design contest

I’ve been sitting on this contest for a bit too long, but you’ve got until March 28th to get your design in so I don’t feel too guilty. WeLoveFine have a knack for picking up big licenses and getting involved with big names and this is no different. They’re on the hunt for a t-shirt design to match up to the pop culture juggernaut that is Scott Pilgrim, and one of the people judging all the design submissions is Bryan Lee O’Malley, the guy that created the Scott Pilgrim series of comics. The minimum prize is $1000 to the winner, but that could go up to $2500 depending on now many total votes are cast in the competition. Here’s a run down of the prizes up for grabs:

Grand Prize: Up to $2,500! We will start the grand prize at $1,000. We will track the number of ratings in the contest; for every 100 new ratings after 100,000 ratings, the dollar value of the grand prize will go up $1. Be sure to tell ALL your friends, family and internet pals to rate every design! With enough rates, the prize could reach a maximum of $2,500 cash!

Guest Judge’s pick (2): Our guest judges will each select their personal favorite design, and those artists will win $400 cash!

Runners-Up (2): Two runners-up will receive a $150 gift certificate for

Honorable Mention (5): Five honorable mentions will receive a $50 gift certificate for

I’m looking forward to seeing what comes from this contest since I was a big fan of the film so I’ll try and remember to keep up with it and relay the updates to you guys.


jem design contest

As a 27 year old guy I’m sure it won’t surprise you to know that I’m not really up on my “80s cartoons aimed at girls that only lasted for 3 seasons” but apparently I am on the wrong side of pop culture in this case, because Mighty Fine/ (I don’t really know what I’m meant to call them) are running a JEM t-shirt design competition with a prize of up to $2500 and that suggests to me that quite a lot of people are/were quite excited about the show. One cool aspect of this competition is that they have brought in the original voice of Jem to be a judge. You’ve got until March 23rd to get your entries in and I’ve included all the details after the break.

fifth element t-shirt

I remember really liking The Fifth Element when I was younger (which I’m sure had nothing to do with Milla Jovovich, oh, and that’s an ever so slightly NSFW link), it was on TV recently and I was worried that it wouldn’t stand up to the test of time, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable watch.

Clearly I’m not the only one who has fond memories of it since our buddies at released this tee a few days ago. If you’re wondering why the face doesn’t look quite right, I’d suspect this has something to do with licensing since those guys actually take notice of that kind of thing.

han shot first t-shirt

Very nice cartoon styled Star Wars design featuring the moment when Han shot first.

jedi thumb trick t-shirt

This fun design is the latest from the official collaboration between Mighty Fine and Lucas Arts. I think that this kind of design works better as a t-shirt because you get to see the reaction of the person looking at it, but they’ve offered all the previous designs as t-shirts and hoodies so it’s hardly a surprise that this one has all those options available too.

Tees are $25 and the hoodie is $49, the design is available until February 5th, at which point it will disappear… forever!

darth maul 3d t-shirt

I’m a bit late posting this week’s limited edition Might Fine x Star Wars t-shirt (they’re only available for one week, Monday-Sunday), but to be entirely honest that doesn’t worry me too much this week since I’m not that excited about the design. I get what they’re going for (it is to promote the 3D version of Episode 1, after all), but for me it’s too promotional and not fan-friendly enough, whereas last week’s design was just delightful. Hopefully I’ll be more excited by next week’s offering. Available as a guys or girls t-shirt for $25 and a unisex hoodie for $49.

T-shirt News Roundup for January 16th

by Andy on January 16, 2012

mythbusters t-shirt

Dexter’s Laboratory meets Mythbusters in this shirt from Teefury.

Y’know, I’ve never seen Donnie Darko, judging by the amount of shirts about it, including this one from Qwertee, I probably should (lots of shirts usually = a good movie).

Shirt.Woot have a delightful 8-bit Ghostbusters design.

Strangely, RIPT also have a Ghostbusters shirt, though with a Muppets twist.

Glow in the dark shirt from The Yetee.

Nowhere Bad have a Portal inspired shirt.

OtherTees have a nice Sherlock design. Did anyone see the last episode of the current run last night? That show is so damn good.

24Tee are selling a familiar stormtrooper design.

TeeRaiders have a Firefly design that I didn’t need to Google to work out what it was.

Quite a pretty Twitter design from

GraphicLab have a Portal shirt on sale all this week.

Tee Mashups is closing, which is unfortunate, though at least they are being up front about things and are sending refunds to people that will not receive their shirts.

Star Wars comes to Shirt Punch today.

Not my kind of tee at DBH today, but interesting nevertheless.

Hey look, Tilteed are selling Greg Abbott’s lovely fox design again.

Glennz has turned five of his designs into iPhone wallpapers (may also work with other smartphones, I’m not sure).

Tony over at Wrongwroks has released a parka jacket in five different colours.

Perception Apparel have put three of their tees on sale for $10.

Halfcut Clothing have released a shirt to celebrate their involvement with the Blind Tiger Collective. Use coupon code hcc10 to get 10% off your order in their store.

The official press release for the Boston Tee Party has been released, it doesn’t cover much new ground but it’s nice to have it all be ‘official’.

Big Cartel let us know about some of their milestones in 2012, such as collective store sales of over $100,000,000 from their almost 200,000 stores.

Mighty Fine are running a competition with Marvel to find an amazing Avengers t-shirt design with the winner receiving up to $2,500.

Johnny Cupcakes has a couple of new tees, and a couple of new hats in his stores.

Here’s Rihanna wearing a Celine t-shirt that probably cost more than my whole outfit.


joy division star wars t-shirt

In the run up to Star War Episode 1 being released in 3D next month (an event I’m sure no one will complain about ridiculous amounts as if George Lucas literally robbed them of a childhood) Might Fine have teamed up with LucasFilm to release limited edition designs that will be available for one week and one week only. This week (until Sunday 15th) they have the above Joy Division inspired design created by Reece Ward, who is of course no stranger to HYA or Star Wars. You can pick up this design as a tee for men or women for $25, or as a hoodie for $49.


wall-e t-shirt It’s no secret that I am a big fan of 8-bit t-shirts. I think that the low resolution of the artwork reminds you that the image was created on a computer, and that contrasts well with a t-shirt, which I still think of as being a garment that is fairly natural and created by hand, even though that isn’t really the case anymore.

Mighty Fine are been on a bit of a spree at the moment, their releases have been frequent and impressive and as you’ve probably gathered from the title of this post I feel that this latest release of retro 8 bit t-shirts. Wall-E & Eve are clearly featured on one of the tees, and you’ll find characters from Sesame Street, Monsters Inc., and The Muppets in some of the other designs.

Very nicely done Scott Pilgrim shirt in the style of the original comic.

Daily News & Tee Roundup for November 21st

by Andy on November 21, 2011

warwick davis t-shirt

I’ve had a change of tack today and I’m putting Shirt Punch at the top of the roundup because today their designer is not by a normal t-shirt artist, it’s by sophisticated dwarf about town Warwick Davis of Star Wars (and currently ‘Life’s too Short’) fame. I know that his new show has gotten a lot of negative press for exploiting short people, but I don’t think he’d be in the show if he didn’t think it was right for him. Nice to see Philip Schofield in the sideart section!

I watched the first episode of The Walking Dead (season 2) at the weekend so I think this TeeFury shirt is pretty dang cool.

Qwertee, or at least someone, has sold this ‘Joy of Death’ shirt before, I’m sure of it.

Very sweet design by BootsBoots at Tilteed today, and whilst it isn’t new to the site, it is new to me.

Nowhere Bad are referencing Iocane Powder from the Princess Bride again.

Seems like this camera t-shirts from provides yet another lovely opportunity to mention my new camera accessories site, Rigu.

Rare that you see Shakespeare quoted on a t-shirt, but Shirt.Woot have pulled it off.

It’s also rare to see RIPT re-using designs, but that is the case with this Tardis/Union Jack t-shirt.

The Yetee give some love to a pair of Ninja Turtles characters that don’t often get a look in when it comes to t-shirts.

I’ve never seen the Slap Bet episode of How I Met Your Mother, but it’s cool the way that they bring it in during later episodes, I like the way that HIMYM has a lot more callbacks than most shows. TeeMinus24.

Random shirts on sale at OtherTees for the next 4 days.

I don’t really understand what this Crane Jackson thing is all about at 24tee today. I’ve found a strange Facebook page that might be a real theatre, and that Crane Jackson was a real person, but I still don’t quite get it. The mystery is quite fun though.

Today at TeeRaiders they’re celebrating a show called Once Upon a Time that’s only been on the air for a month on ABC in the US, I can’t decide if that’s brilliant or terrible.

GraphicLab have a shirt this week that combines Nintendo’s famous Power Glove with Thanos from the Marvel universe.

Really cool design from Loviu today.

2nd design has been made available from Tshirt Contest, this one is all about how delicious meat is.

Not really my kind of shirt at DBH today.

Someone on Instructables has made a fun looking shirt with LEDs in it.

Wrongwroks will be releasing this hoodie today, I really like the contrast detail on the zip and hood.

Springleap have teamed up with Marmite for a design competition.

PLNDR have more ridiculous prices in their bargain bin today.

Get $25 off with the coupon code 25X8TN at 80s Purple when you spend $80 or more (and there’s free shipping if you spend $99 or more).

Sturban Clothing have started selling Quilted Jackets by SeventySeven.

This guy called Jack got in touch to let me know about his site, and whilst the tees aren’t really my style, I thought you guys might like his stuff, and he seems very likeable in spite of the odd choice of creating a website that is 300 pixels wide.

Chris Kawagiwa, who recently had a few designs printed over at Might Fine, sent me an e-mail that pointed me towards a concept & process video for one of his steampink Star Wars designs. It’s really cool to watch it come together from pen & paper to the finished tee.

RadCakes have released three new shirts that I don’t particularly care for, perhaps you do.
