Reach! at Camiseteria

camiseteria reach

Reach! by Lucas de Alcantara was a new addition at Camiseteria this week, and it really caught my eye. This is a character-based tee done right, with a central figure that inspires curiosity. He’s a tiny explorer reaching for the moon (easy to relate to), and the space ship in the background starts to weave a story around this scene.

Also, Woot Derby fans take note: if you enjoyed the recent VW parody that was rejected from competition, give Camiseteria’s version a try. It’s a more complete joke with a smoother execution.

Power Hippie at Camiseteria

Camiseteria‘s latest tee is one that definitely caught my eye, Power Hippie by Rogerio Puhl. I love the contrast between the serenity of the hippie’s expression and the crazy chaos of his hair. Balanced on his head is a seriously cool mix of characters and objects, with a flow (both in color and shape) that keeps me looking for more details and more to discover. Awesome design!

New at Camiseteria

Camiseteria has again printed up some neat stuff. One of my favorites is Allctopus by Draco, which is a clever diagram of various versions of octopi (including a clown and a zombie). What works here is that it’s attractive and funny even without being close enough to read the captions. That said, I think a less rectangular shape for the art would have made this concept even better.

Another classic is Rinha by Vinícius Carvas, which has humans participating in a cockfight while huge roosters gamble and cheer them on. The surreal scene is hilarious and sparked my imagination. I also liked the touch of adding the print below the collar on back, it makes the shirt feel even more complete.

New Designs at Camiseteria

Camiseteria has printed up some new awesomes since the last time I checked in with them, with my two favorites having a distinct sixties vibe. First up is The Band by Ike Motta, glorifying The Beatles with psychedelic colors and crazy text. I’m a little unclear on the legality of printing something that is presumably unauthorized band merch (hey, maybe the laws are more lax in Brazil), but I can’t really argue with how nice the print looks. Though I do wonder why it says 2004… At any rate, the other tee that caught my eye is Cogumelo by Alan Maia. Between the neatly penciled lines, soft colors and slight distressing, it really does look like a relic from another era. I wish the print was a bit bigger, but in every other respect it is flawless.

I sometimes overlook Camiseteria– the language gap and the fact that I can never figure out a pattern to their catalog updates make it harder to follow than a lot of the competition. But the fact is, they’re in the habit of putting out some really solid work, as this week more than indicates.

Vida Longa Aos Reis by Matheus Lopes is a slick drawing that incorporates several visual icons (celebrities included) who have earned the nickname King over the years. It’s a cool idea because it forces you to take a look at all the things society values, and to weigh how they measure up to each other.

O Pequeno Principe e a Raposa by Bruno Mosa plays on the classic story of The Little Prince, imagining his solitude brightened with a laptop and internet access. Style is key here, with some nice motion on the firefox logo and windswept hair on the little prince. His expression is hard for me to read, which might be a strength in this case- by not committing to either happiness or boredom, the viewer is left to choose the interpretation without bias.

We Love a Fight by MichaelBisparulz rules entirely on style. The concept- a ninja battle- leaves me cold, but the charming touch in creating each of the characters (including the panda audience, which functions as a backdrop) makes it a design that I want to keep looking at. It’s more fun than just about any other shirt I’ve seen lately.
