Tee Contest Year in Review(s) 2011

It’s been a pretty rad year for t-shirt contests! I’m going to wrap up 2011 with the best shirt I reviewed each month this past year, highlighting some of the best and brightest in the genre. Enjoy!

TeeProject’s Escape Me

Escape Me by JaidenFK is the newest print at TeeProject, though to be honest it’s a bit of a letdown after the magnificence that was their last print. Most things would look a little lackluster in comparison, to be fair. There are some nice bits- I like the geometric lines framing the bottom of the tree, and the way the tree brushes just past the edge of its blue, circular background. The problem is that it all feels a bit generic. The tree looks more like a clipart silhouette than a new artist-created image. The text is a miss as well, using a bland font and a phrase that doesn’t really make any sense. What is Escape Me meant to mean? Are we supposed to want to get away from nature? Trees are pretty much stuck where they are, so it’s not a very exciting thought.

Winners at Tee Project earn $500 AUD (about US $523).
