Up In Smoke

Mmmmmmn, a tee shirt with someone smoking on it, interesting, mmmmn, but look, look closlier, even closlier, that's not just smoke coming out of that cigarette, that's the whole wide world coming outta there. A pretty ominous message I guess but it's a real nice/clever/thought provoking image none the less. From the website it seems theres some kinda Doomsday clock reference thing going on which is pretty cool, I'm into that kind of shizzle. If your not familiar with the Doomsday clock then google it, that will give you a better understanding. Anyways, bob along to the origin68 store and grab yourself one.

I'm Banksy

I'm Banksy, No I'm banksy, and so's my wife.


When i saw this i nearly spaffed everywhere. Not cause it's in any way, shape or form an amazing print or anything like that but because it's so damn simple and funny and works on a couple of levels. Not only can you walk round pretending to be Banksy (hell, he's not gonna take any credit for what he does so why don't you do it for him?), but the phase I'm Banksy just spawns the classic lines of Monty Python's Life of Brian, which is undoubtedly a great great film. I just have this nice image in my head of hundreds of people walking about London wearing this shirt. That would be great.

Anyway I've rambled enough nonsense. Have a look, you can even choose your favourite colour.


Nice mail from the guys at Enstrumental. First I had heard of them. Got some nice tees on offer, definately got a Hip Hop flava. I like the positive messages that they send out. Alot are font based which i like. I'm especially liking this 'Get off Your High Horse' one featured above. Check out that guy too, he's so cool he wears two watches. That's slick. Anyway, grease yourselves over to their flashy little site and have a goosey gander.

Print Liberation

Print Liberation is in fact a creative design agency based in Philly. However they sent me a mail to tell me about some shirts they were selling.

So, out of the kindness of my heart I trawled my ass over to their store and had a look. Yes, some t shirts, not bad. Nice little site, nicely put together. The thing that caught my eye though was the section marked book. Mmmmmnnn I thought to myself, wonder what that might be about, so I clicked. Lo and behold it's a tasty little book about screen printing. Kinda like a begginners guide, not the most original of ideas but i just liked the way it had been put together, maybe someone who reads this may be interested and get started.

Anyway, get over there, have a look, check out their shirts. Theres some nice prints. I particularly liked the 'Life is What You Make It' print which if it was on a tshirt i may have shelled out some cash for it.

If you like mosters you're in for a treat. Monsters is the dish of the day for Manchester based Me&Yu. These guys are so close to where I live I can smell them coming off the printing press.
What started out as a little money spinner on Bondi Market, Australia soon turned out to be the successful label that it is now. With a Manchester store the label soon attracted a cult following with celebrities such as Agyness Deyn, Noel Fielding (The Mighty Boosh), New Young Pony Club, and Joseph Gilgun (This is England) all seen wearing Me&Yu clothes.
They have just opened another new store so the future looks bright for these guys. I've added a selection of my faves. Particularly liking Monster Doodle and Killer Cats (bottom, Salmon), which looks effing brilliant in that colour.
See them online at
or if you're in Manchester swing by their shop.

Origin68 - Butterfly Girl

Another great release from Origin68. This time it's Butterfly Girl. This one has been kicking around for a while on the site, so it's good to see it finally up, it looks damn good too. Great colours and a nice design.

All the original designs these guys had up on their site are now in production, it will be damn interesting to see what they put out next. I will be keeping a close watch on these guys as Ive been more than impressed with what they've put out so far.

See for yourselves


I'm sure there are millions of you earthlings out there who are well aware of these chappies/chappesses. As for me, I wasn't aware of their work, but now that I am, I'm really glad about it. I like their stuff. Firstly, it's a very tasty looking site, its well put together and functions well, not that this kinda crap usually floats my boat I'm usually more into whether the shirts are nice. However this is good. Secondly, and more importantly, the shirts are pretty tasty. My particular faves are Yay-yo (top) and Can't Stop Won't Stop (bottom), the can't cook, won't cook of the t shirt world. My advice would be, swing by and find your own favourites, that's what all the cool kids are doing.

Found these bad boys whilst having a bazz round t'internet. Pretty cool, nice price too. £8.99 of your cash money is great value for something limited and well thought about. Plenty of colour options on some of them too which always helps. Have a Terry Butchers over at:

Art In The Age of Mechanical Reproduction

Two things. (1) Have you ever seen a tee quite like that!? (Top) That's definately one for the people out there who like to be noticed. It's very cool, not sure I could pull it off myself though. (2)Awesome beards. You may have noticed that i have somewhat of a penchant for beards. I've invested alot of time in training my own facial hair over the years so any chance i get to admire some fellow beard wearers is a pleasure. (Tip: If you want to get your shirts noticed then get a bearded model) .Which brings me nicely on to the t shirt at the bottom, well what can i say, it features a beard, its a nice image. Ideal for the people out their who struggle to grow more than bum fluff. The t shirt above the beard is one of my faves, i love the whole random sketchyness, has a kinda Jeff Lewis feel to it which always works for me.
Oh yeah, by the way, these shirts are from Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction based in the US of A. Definately putting the art into tshirts. That's pretty much what I like to see. I'm a simple man with simple needs.

Collapse Design

More Helvetic madness follwing the recent article about Collapse Design and their sex, drugs, helvetica, bold shirts (now available in red, Woo!) This time it's the incredibly lovable Helveticat. Simple really, Helvetica with a t. Easy as. Nicely executed aswell. As I've probably mentioned before, Helvetica rocks. Nuff said.
