Teetonic’s Six Cities Competition Update

The last two shirts have been posted, and I am really enjoying them. It almost redeems the whole Six Cities program for me (ALMOST).

First up is the Zandra Rhodes shirt. It’s not my style, but I can still see that there’s a level of quality there. The illustration style is fun and distinctive (the kind of thing I would probably want if I were a fan of Rhodes). There appears to be some metallic ink used on the tee, which helps justify the price. It’s a nice product on the whole, and I can easily picture other people wearing shirts like this.

Then, the Stefan Sagmeister shirt. I really love this shirt. The main character has a ton of personality (he looks like a mean little sock monkey). There’s a cool message. Overall, this shirt is a winner. I feel like it could potentially be better (for instance if the back had other animal characters spouting incorrect opinions) but there’s something to be said for simplicity and there’s nothing wrong with this shirt as is.

It’s too bad some of the other shirts weren’t up to this level of quality, but two cool shirts (Sagmeister’s monkey and d8’s make it better) and two decent shirts (Rhodes’ illustration and Timorous Beasties’ collage) is a reasonable result.
