Mae Loves Threadless

A new contest is up at Threadless: Mae Loves Threadless. The theme is Singularity, and the prize pack is pretty sweet (Xbox 360, Guitar Hero II, an autographed cymbal and more!).

Entries should be submitted before August 31st.

(I admit that I had never heard of Mae until now. So I was amused to learn that the band’s website is WhatIsMae.com. Indeed.)

New Shirt Monday at Threadless!

threadless-suprise.gif threadless-seesaw2.gif

Threadless‘s new shirt picks for this week are top-notch as usual- and it’s an unusually hefty number of new shirts, to boot! Seven awesome, brand new, never before offered shirts and two perfectly reasonable reprints. My favorites of the new crop are Surprise (it makes excellent use of the shirt color and creates a really neat shape on the tee) and Sea-Saw II (a really fun concept executed impeccably).

And for all the shirt designers out there, just a reminder: The Gmail Loves Threadless and PaRappa the Rapper Loves Threadless competitions are currently accepting entries. They both have a deadline of August 16th, 2007.

New Monday at Threadless: Super-Sized!

Mother Knows Best - Threadless, Best T-shirts EverPlay - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

This Monday at Threadless is even more hectic than usual: In addition to a great crop of new tees (my favorites, Mother Knows Best and Play, are pictured above) there are also two brand new Loves Threadless competitions!

In the PaRappa the Rapper Loves Threadless competition, designers are encouraged to create shirts with the theme “I Gotta Believe!” In addition to the typical prizes for being printed, the winner will receive a PSP, games and PaRappa merchandise.

The Gmail Loves Threadless competition is going to be insane, I can already tell. The theme is “Connect,” which is a pretty easy idea to brainstorm around. And the prizes are nuts! The winner gets an iPhone, a $400 JetBlue gift certificate, a bluetooth headset, and tons of Google merchandise.

Best of Eagle Vs. Shark Loves Threadless

Since the Threadless Eagle vs. Shark competition deadline passed a few days ago, here’s a look at my favorite three entries:

Amazing Freak - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever
This shirt is fantastic in just about every way. The awkwardness is easy to understand and the style (reminiscent of old circus posters) is impeccable.

Foiled Again! - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever
Curses uses a great style (one that hasn’t been printed very often at Threadless). The story is easy to understand at a glance, and it has a lot of visual power.

Looking for love - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever
Looking for Love is more of a typical Threadless shirt, employing cute animals to service the theme. But the detailing, from textures on the animals to a neat star pattern in the background, set this submission apart from the pack.

Any of those three (and a handful of other nice designs) would be a great addition to the catalog and a worthy prize winner.

From June 17th, 2007 to July 17th, Threadless is accepting entries to the Cornelius Loves Threadless competition. The theme is Sensuality, so make yourself some popcorn and pull up a chair- we’re about to see a whole lotta amateurish submissions.

The prize package includes a Theremin, which is definitely worth working for.

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists Loves Threadless

The deadline for the Ted Leo Loves competition just passed, and so far there’s been some really nice work submitted… and a lot of submissions with cartoon band people. But let’s focus on the positive. My three favorites each had different drawing styles and points of view, but are uniform in their level of awesomeness. Here’s my top three:

the unseen / unheard - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever
The Restless Consumer - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever
Cut You Down - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever
