Holiday Shopping List: Contest artists gone indie

The holidays are headed this way soon, and that means there are a lot of gifts to be bought. If anyone on your list appreciates original art, then read on.

I’ve created a list of artists who have won popular t-shirt contests such as Threadless, Design By Humans, and Shirt.Woot and are now selling artwork or other products independently. In the interest of keeping the list to a high-quality and manageable length, Print on Demand items (like CafePress, RedBubble, or Society6) will not be listed… at least in this post!

Without further ado, here’s the list! Support these artists and help them continue making great stuff:
