BeastWreck is the name of a new T-shirt brand which is already destined to become huge. Created by great illustrator & designer Jared Moraitis – a.k.a. BeastPop – whom we recently made an interesting interview with (he also won the gold medal in Teezine T-shirt Olympics in Best T-shirt design category).

Mr. Moraitis is known for his comic-influenced, cartoon illustrations, so no wonder BeastWreck entirely consists of his awesome designs. In Jared’s own words: “BeastWreck is a mad-scientist’s concoction of equal parts pop, pulp, rock, geek and retro, born from an artist’s mind that has been pickled by extended submersion in a cocktail of cartoons, video games, kaiju battles, rock music, comic books, sci-fi and horror movies!  Clothes, buttons, stickers, prints, more”!

BeastWreck has several shirt designs they are launching with: “GRRRILLA”, “KROOL-AID” (available in red and black options), and “PAKKU-MAN” (available in black and yellow options).  All designs are available in men’s sizes S-XXXL and women’s sizes S-XL. You might also find a button or sticker or two. BeastWreck is taking preorders right now, but all shirts will be screenprinted by Terminus Tees – they produce some amazing shirts and are known for quality in screen-printing!  No direct-to-garment print-on-demand junk there…

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of emails from various tee labels, warning me about their new designs.  So why not present some of them in one singular post? First we have a new design by The Dept., called Vampire Androids Always Win. I like the use of purple colors and simpe cartoonish design. Good way of mixing funny slogan and nice design. This shirt is available for $22.00 there at The Dept. online store.

Second we have a design called Stride by a label previously unknown to me, called Bear Annihilator. I like this design cause it is inspired by 1920’s cartoons, you just have to love that retro stuff! Shirt is available for $24.00 from Bear Annihilator online shop (both in men and women styles and sizes).

And lastly, we have 2 new designs from those crazy Fuzzy Ink-sters – a label dedicated to create tee designs based around moustaches. You know that a real man is nothing without his moustaches. So, of you don’t have one – why wouldn’t you own one of these fine shirts? Both shirts are available for $18.95 from Fuzzy Ink online store.

Blogging about T-shirts, I get a lot of emails which are pointing to sites with new clothing lines, asking me to check them out. And I always do so. Sometimes I like what I see, other times I don’t. With Rat On The Run, an independent label started by designer Stuart Sibley, I really liked what he has to offer. Iconic images and cartoon-alike logos are the core of his designs. It always looks good on shirts and it sure catches your eye. Here are few samples.

I asked Stuart to present his tee line to all of you, so here’s what he had to say…

“Motivated by the desire to get out of the monotony of the day job I decided to transform work time doodles into real life designs and launch a web based company marketing exclusively designed t-shirts. Soon my endeavours had inspired the company’s name, Rat On The Run, and found a medium for my creative energies.

I guess I could have just jacked in the job and become an artist but I needed my work to be far more direct and graphic and I have always loved the ability of t-shirts for providing this. I believe that t-shirts are the most democratic of mediums for communicating ideas, opinions or simply taste. Anyone can find a t-shirt that expresses themselves or their views and if they can’t, they can take a marker and create their own.

Rat on the Run’s website, www.ratontherun.com, caters for both men and women, selling the t-shirts online.  Screen printed onto quality garments, the iconic designs are a mix of simple typography, visual puns and sometimes thought provoking slogans, but steers away from crass humour and anything deemed to be too commercial. As the number of designs increase and the range of clothing extends, the aim of Rat on the Run is to become a recognised brand, whilst still retaining it individuality and expressive style”.

So, why don’t you give yourself an advice and go check Stuart’s site, maybe you could find something for yourself there.

The Dept is a small design studio in LA, run by tee designer Richard Leighton. His fascination with all things androids is done very nice on his designs, which can be seen from the first look on his shop, up there at Big Cartel. He just added a new design, called “Get On Board!”, to his “Androids Always Win” series, whic features a crew of androids on the loose. Here are some of my picks (along with a new design):

Even though I’m not a fan of all things space (and that Star Wars stuff), I really like what Richard does. His designs are good, they are clean, and they are fun. Plus, they’re screen printed on 100% quality cotton American Apparel shirts, with environment friendly inks. Prices are $22.00, plus he has a really good lookin’ tote bag for your shopping routine.

Looking forward for new episodes of  “androids on the loose”!

Springleap.com visitors have chosen another winner this week, and it’s called “Here comes trouble…” by German design DeeDeeKid, very talented deisgner whose portfolio is full of wonderful graphics. Here’s the winning design:

My impression is thatcolors he picked for his design fit perfectly with black shirts, on which the design is printed, so if you like funny / cartoonish / iconic tee designs, make sure you get this one (it’s $19 or 15 Euros).
