Check out these designs featuring the Tulsa skyline buried under a foot of snow. Or more!
Another mildly humorous t-shirt design from the world wide interwebs.
Maybe a little late for the bulk of your Summer cookouts, but there’s still time if you order now!
Here’s another great T-shirt design from our friends at BustedTees.
It’s satirical, yet ironic. I thought it was a clever jab at the sad state of our collective physique. It works on so many levels. It’s just one of many hilarious T-shirts available now for a measly eight bucks!
Shocked? How is this possible?
Only at the Busted Tees Megasale.
And of course- it’s not available in any store!

This is the funniest t-shirt I’ve seen in a while.
This isn’t the only funny t-shirt Busted Tees sells. And if you want the whole enchilada of funny slogans, tasteless puns and off-color illustration on a cotton pullover you need only visit the T-Shirt page at Places2ride.com.
I just about blew Dr. Pepper out my nose the first time I saw it. I’ve got to stop drinking so much.
What better attire for
watching golden oldies?
The Insects T-Shirt!Okay, gang. Here’s the Insects appearance on the Night Shift television show in its entirety. Complete with closed captioned lyrics!
The video previews appear in the order the songs were played on the show. My apologies for the low resolution- but they’re good enough to get the general idea.

I was playing around with another idea for a t-shirt design. This one makes the subtle point to use less stuff by running out of printer ink.
I set it on the background of torn spiral paper just for that extra bit of conservation.
Yeah yeah, I know. Kinda’ silly, but if you want one it’s available now from Cafe Press.
The other day a friend told me about a story he’d just heard on NPR. It was about this web site called Threadless where you can submit a t-shirt design and if enough people like it they print up a batch and sell them. I was curious.
There are thousands of people posting designs and some of them are pretty cool. I played around voting on different images for a little while and gathering inspiration. The site is a grassroots creative outlet mixed with the social interaction of visitors as they rate designs on a scale of 1 to 5. It’s sort of like Cafe Press meets MySpace.
So I downloaded their template and played around with a couple of old comics and some clipart. They didn’t care for my first try claiming it was mostly text. It was an old comic I had penned many years ago of a computer visiting his therapist.
The first design Threadless accepted was a play on my Radio Milan t-shirt theme, but with a super 8 movie projector— I called it “They keep making them smaller.”
Feel free to click the above link and vote for the design. You will have to register on Threadless but it’s pretty painless.
Since sixth grade I’ve been putting stuff on T-shirts. Back then I used a magic marker. That was fun, not just for the creativity. Back in the Sixties a magic marker smelled like an auto body shop and would get you high as a kite! Today I doodle mostly with Photoshop and a digital camera, although I still sketch by hand occasionally. And instead of drawing on spare tees from the underwear drawer I let Cafe Press print them for me.
Cafe Pressis a unique marketplace that makes all sorts of stuff– shirts, postcards, mugs, panties, posters, etc. The neat thing is none of the stuff they make is their stuff. It’s your stuff!
You create a design or take a photo, then create a product with your image. They take care of all the fussy stuff like making it, packing it, shipping it and taking money for it. The best part is you decide how much you want to make and set the markup– if any.
A similar scheme is offered by Zazzle. They promise 24-hour-turnaround on orders and claim superior printing quality to Cafe Press. Either offer a quick way for you to start up for free.
Another unique approach to embellished clothing is Threadless. Think of it as My Space meets Cafe Press. The idea here is to rate submissions then produce those with the highest approval. Site visitors create designs or create slogans and post them on the site. Other users rate them on a scale of 1 to 5 and can also post their comments. If the design garners sufficient interest Threadless prints the design and offers it in their catalog.
Here’s a few of the designs I’ve dreamed up and posted on Cafe Press:
Back in the Eighties I played in a band originally called The Insects, later the name became Radio Milan. You can buy recreations of the band T-shirt as well as a compilation CD online.
Incidentally, my Threadless design didn’t make the cut, but it was fun just participating in the process. Here’s a thumbnail:
