Loving the season so far, but glad I haven’t read the books. The season sounds like it has been veering significantly away from the books.

5/1/15 Top Pick; The Last Hand Standing

TextmateIcon Composition – Interesting combination of image and type. The type acts almost like part of the image.

TextmateIcon Lines & Forms – Great simplified render of the Game of Thrones characters. I really enjoy how very little info is given in the background to reveal the characters.

Thank You Laughing Devil

WOW! It has been forever since my last post! To all my avid followers, I am sorry for the hiatus. My professional life has changed in the last few months. I am now a Graphic Designer for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts! Which has been awesome…

I still check out the different daily tee shirt sites regularly, but I haven’t had time to share. I hope to be able to make time going forward and share my favorite designs!

02/17/2015 Top Pick – Daily Shirt Designs

It’s a Snow Day here in VA! The ground is covered in nice white powder. Time to blog! What better way to spend the time indoors? Luckily there are two designs today that captured my interest :)


2/17/15 Top Pick; Son Of Hell

heart-04 Composition – Nice simple bilateral symmetry. The round plate in the background nicely unites the two smoking guns in the foreground.

heart-04 Color – I really enjoy the monochromatic reds with the limited cream color highlights.

heart-04 Lines & Forms – Wonderful lines and forms in the details of the guns. I also really enjoy the geometry in the round plate. Hellboy’s face looks rough and is nicely highlighted by the thin brighter red lines.

Thank You Fernando Sala

2/17/15 Top Pick; Project 626

heart-04 Composition – Awesome radial symmetry. The many limbs and weapons nicely balance around the center. I really enjoy the light blue icon and text on the bottom of the design. It pulls the eye downward, stabilizes, and completes the design.

heart-04 Color – Nice mix of warm and cool colors. I especially like the glow added around the entire design. For example, the light reflecting from Stitch’s nose, weapons, and even background.

heart-04 Lines & Forms – Clean line work. I really like the dark and light outline around Stitch. It makes him glow and stand out from the busy round background.

Thank You Emilie B

She is one of my favs! Make sure to follow/like her on Facebook. She aways has awesome stuff on her page!

1/21/15 Top Pick; Dark City

snowflake Composition – Wonderful play with positive and negative space. Like most of Kharmazero’s designs, it is composed of simple dark or negative space against a wash of exciting color as the positive space. I love that this designer is not afraid of stark contrast and he utilizes it wonderfully.

snowflake Color – The contrasting light and dark colors nicely develop the design. The radiating reds, yellows, and oranges create an attractive field for the dark city landscape.

Thank You Kharmazero

1/21/15 Top Pick; Never Say Die

snowflake Lines & Forms – What a beauty! This designer’s female figures are breathtakingly gorgeous with an easily recognizable style. I love the thick wavy strips of hair. His typical big eyed beauties never fail to impress. I absolutely love the thick outlines and waving banners giving his designs a tattoo style appearance. As a part-time body piercer at a tattoo shop, I encounter this style on a regular basis. His lines, drawings, and sketches, which he frequently shares on Facebook, are just a beautiful!

snowflake Color – The wonderful shading technique nicely develops the forms and thus very little color is necessary.

Thank You Tim Shumate
