Putting Designs on Your Back: A Showcase of T-Shirt Designs

January 10th, 2012

We all have that one t-shirt that we love; we love the fit, we love the color and we absolutely adore the design. For some, the t-shirt design can be a form of expression or it can simply be a fashion statement. Then there are a few folks who wear t-shirts to show off their great taste in art and creativity. Regardless of the reason one wears a t-shirt, it goes without saying that without great designs, your t-shirt game is probably lacking.

Far too often we take the design and designer for granted. Today, we’ve gathered some super, amazing (and funny) t-shirt designs to showcase the work and the artist.

    You want to see some other really cool t-shirt designs? You should check out Lain Lee 3 Design’s work, follow him on Twitter (@LainLee3Design).

    His Steel Town Native shirt really shows off his artistry and mastery of the craft of making fine threads.

    Protect Your Soul and Living Paint <3

    I've yet to find a good local digital printer for some ideas. Silk screen's good but the amount of color and detail like the ones showed here definitely won't do well there.
