by Andy on March 13, 2012

firefly t-shirt

Serenity/Firefly tee up at TeeFury.


I tried to make nacho cheese a couple of weeks ago, it was hideous, America, what are you thinking with that stuff? Shirt.Woot.


TMNT meets Queen in this unexpected mashup at RIPT.


I don’t think I ever considered that I’d post a horror Mary Poppins t-shirt, but Qwertee have filled in that gap.


Goonies in the style of Peanuts anyone? Shirt Punch.


24tee may have posted this previously, but it still made me smile, it’s just so bold!


Hmmm, I get the feeling that I haven’t seen the episode of Community that this TeeRaiders shirt is referring to.


Tusken Raiders new in at Tshirt Contest. Can anyone else think of a place that they’ve seen this concept before, I’m sure I’ve seen it elsewhere?


That’s pretty cool, DBH.


“Don’t use the Z word” is a Shaun of the Dead shirt up at GraphicLab for the rest of the week (I’m glad the lateness of this design was just a blip, I was a little worried about them).


Made in the Now have a shirt about love letters that recently went on display at a museum in California sent by Richard Nixon to his future bride.


Tilteed have an old shirt with a massive anteater on it.


Emma Stone hates cancer, possibly likes Star Wars.


Jake Nickell has a good blog post about why Threadless exists.


To celebrate 4 years of having his own store Glennz is offering a massive 40% off until Friday with the coupon code gt4years.

Top 5 t-shirts at RedBubble in February

by Andy on March 7, 2012

bill murray t-shirt

I got an e-mail from RedBubble that showed their top five best sellers in certain categories (t-shirts, posters, prints, that kind of thing) and I thought that it would be interesting to share with you. I don’t know what order they should be in, I just know that these are the top 5 according to RedBubble themselves. Predictably, all the designs have a pop culture reference in them in one way or another, proving that if you want to make money on RedBubble, art is nice but a reference will get you everywhere.

I’m kind of disappointed to see this Bill Murray t-shirt in the top 5, not because I don’t like it (who doesn’t love Bill Murray?) but because it’s just a LiveTrace of a photo and the designer admits that they don’t know who the original photographer is, and I think that if I were the photographer I’d like to at least be asked before one of my images was used on a t-shirt.


If I complained about the Bill Murray shirt then you won’t be surprised to find that I have similar qualms about this Breaking Bad inspired ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ t-shirt since it’s practically the same as the original design from the show with just a bit of distressing to it. It is a pretty cool logo though so I can see why people are buying it.


Pretty sure I’ve featured this “Time-y Wimey” Doctor Who design by Tom Trager before when it was on one of the daily sites, but clearly it has been popular on RedBubble as well.


Very nice Troy & Abed x Calvin & Hobbes mashup by MeganLara. I like this because the mashup isn’t just two random pop cultures items picked because they’re popular, but because they actually make sense together.


‘College of Winterhold’ is a design referencing Game of Thrones, and that’s about as much background as I can give you on it, but college style designs like this are always popular so it’s hardly surprising that this has made it to the top five for February.

I know that I often write about items on HYA that skirt the edges of copyright infringement quite frequently and don’t pull people up for it, but I feel that this case is slightly different to the usual since there haven’t been large enough changes to the images for it to be deemed fair use in my opinion. Let me know in the comments if you think my thoughts have missed the mark.
