camiseteria wake up in a bad dream

Wake Up in a Bad Dream by Eder da Luz

“Instead of turning his head to see the actual state of the world, he’s contest to watch through a TV screen.

– Camiseteria’s Wake Up in a Bad Dream, January 19th, 2015

monsieur poulet french colombes

French Colombes by Oeilbleu

“…French Colombes succeeds primarily because the concept of doves broadcasts a more political message…”

Monsieur Poulet’s French Colombes, February 28th, 2015


March

pampling monster under the bed

Monster Under the Bed by Ben Chen

“What really clinches his villainous feel, though, is the tumble of building blocks in front of him. This puts me immediately in mind of King Kong demolishing his way through the city.”

Pampling’s Monster Under the Bed, March 14th, 2015


April

threadless creative force

Creative Force by Thomas

“…like an ancient symbol carved into rock and worn down over the ages.”

threadless happiness is a warm blanket

Happiness is a Warm Blanket by Rodrigo Leonardo Batista Ferreira

“Making the shirt’s folds stand in for the curves of his blanket is also one heck of a fun and smart optical illusion.”

threadless color bomb

Color Bomb by Philipp Rietz

“The gradients and triangular shapes are fun to look at because they feel dimensional, like you’re staring into a rainbow-colored crystal.”

Threadless: Color Bomb and more new this week, June 25th, 2015


July

threadless woodstock(s)

Woodstock(s) by Dgeph

“It’s just such an iconic idea, using the bird Woodstock to replace the bird for the familiar Woodstock concert graphic.”

August

camiseteria i'm not dog nao

I’m Not Dog Não by Badaro

“That gives the pup a weird, quirky kind of wisdom- you almost expect that if he could talk he’d be imparting life lessons instead of begging for treats.”

Camiseteria’s I’m Not Dog Não, August 4th, 2015


September

we love fine persistence of jake

Persistence of Jake by Jeremy S.

“I love the way it capitalizes on Jake’s shape changing abilities, showing him melting and wobbling in a very Jake sort of way.”

WeLoveFine’s Adventure Time 3 winners, September 28th, 2015


October

camiseteria roundscape 2

Roundscape II by Fil Gouvea

“The bright yellow sun provides a good point of introduction to the piece as it immediately pulls in your eyes, and its color brightens up the scene and helps it to feel cheerful and optimistic.”

Camiseteria’s Roundscape II, October 26th, 2015


November

threadless veteran wasteland hoarder

Veteran Wasteland Hoarder by Rich Allen

“Gamers will get a kick out of scanning that huge haul of items, because it’s all real stuff they’ll remember having encountered in the Wasteland.”

Threadless: Veteran Wasteland Hoarder and more new this week, November 19th, 2015


December

camiseteria a guerra dos tipos

A Guerra dos Tipos by Mauricio Fontinele

“What’s especially fun about this to me is the way that each style’s ampersand becomes its own character, each with a unique outfit and personal style that reflects the look of their letterform.”

Camiseteria’s A Guerra dos Tipos, December 21st, 2015

That wraps it up for 2015, but you can see how t-shirt art fared in past years in Compete-tee-tion’s 201420132012, 2011, and 2010 contest roundups.
