Howdy ho! Long enough they were waiting, now these designs find themselves on T-shirts.

Please give a warm welcome to the newcomers in the Scribtee range, fresh pressed:

Robots Don’t Dream by “Snewo” aka Mark Owens.

Wake Up! The Horrible Alarm Clock, well known by every working man. A lovely illustration by Attila Szamosi of Peachbeach.

Testbild – with 24/7 TV programme coverage a nostalgia thing of the past. Memorized by Benjamin Kohl aka whyme. If you want to know more about what TV showed in its early days, you really should check this site: http://www.tv-testbild.com/ (in German).

Give a warm welcome to our new Scribtees in store:

 

You’re under arrest by Dxtr in collaboration with young gun Reack from France.

 

What your parents never told you about Little Red Cap – the true story, revealed and illustrated by Ignacio.

Sorry, they’re in the winners section a coupole of days already, but like all the winners before they deserve to be announced properly. Especially it was not easy to get picked amongst all these good designs that came in the past month. It was not easy to pick the definite winners with that number of great designs, and there were many tees that were close at the top by scoring points and overall awesomeness.

However, we congratulate those who made it:

Aliadotony, who scores his third big prize after What I Am Made Of and Everyone Can Be An Artist Kit (which is almost sold out unfortunately). It’s called Blame it on the TV, and there is a lot of things to discover on it. To appreciate what you only could have a slight idea of in the preview.

Second, more excellent line work comes from French designer Alain aka. digaster. His beautiful drawing of a boat called “La Mer” is characterized by excellent linework full of verve. We’re certain that these will be two excellent tees.

Congratulations to Tony and Alain, a big shoutout to the close follow-ups (CeKa, TheW, dxtr, MikeF and … digaster again). Keep submitting this excellent work, because the contest goes on and on and on.

Nature is my mother

Nature is my mother

 One new T-shirt is in the shop, and it is called “Nature is my mother“. A true freak of nature with a nice countryside hat. Berlin boy Lars Wunderlich, who calls himself TheW in our contest, did this amazing illustration. As well as the useful Mr. Tool who finally found a T-shirt home at Scribtee.com 

Let’s go a bit into details and let the big W (not to be confused!) explain himself:

Hi Lars, please introduce yourself in a few words.

Hi world, i’m Lars Wunderlich aka. Thew aka. Look aka. Erw.Mc.Verve etc…. I’m a Berlin-based designer who is currently very busy with his Diploma work. I do alot of different creative stuff like Illustration, Graffiti, Type-design, Logos, CorporateDesign, Wallpaintings, T-shirts and loads of other stuff which can be decorated. I’m 27 years old and grew up in beatiful Mecklenburg Vorpommern in the north of Germany. I always wanted do something creative in my life. That was my dream and still is. I’m happy to be part of the great peachbeach-collective.

Who or what is ‘Peachbeach’ ?

Peachbeach is a design collective with an eye on illustrative design. Peachbeach are three crazy nervous guys. Falk Hoger, Attila Szamosi and me met in 2007 on a creative camp in the nice countryside of Brandenburg. We didn’t know each other very well, but painted a canvas together. It worked quite well and we realised that our minds fitted together, so we decided to do something together. That was the starting point of Peachbeach. Everybody is free to do what he wants, and sometimes we do stuff together. It depends on what we want to do.

Do you work as a full time designer?

I try hard.

Is there a way you would describe your style?

I cannot describe my style very well because it changes from time to time. It bores me to focus on one special style, so i spread my style into different direction of the creative universe. But I can say that I like well thought out detailed things. I don’t want to do bling bling stuff, which only looks good but has no really meaning behind its prettyness.

Mr. Tool

Tell us a bit about your design “Mr Tool“. How did you get the idea, what did you want to express?

Mr. Tool was originally a cover for a design book. Originally it was only the triangle without a face or a body. The cover didn’t make it, so i decided to do something with all these nice icons. I pushed some Icons from here to there and Mr.Tool popped out. He consists of some really helpfull design tools, so i thought maybe he could say this naughty slogan: USE ME. That’s it.

Even more interesting: What is this thing on “Nature is my mother“?

Yes, this story is a little bit different. I was on my way home from my parents house in hot summer. They live in the countryside  near the woods. I sat in the train doodling a bit, while wearing that hat and the sunglasses you can see in the design. I tryed to draw myself with the pen and this came to my mind. It is the best selfportrait I have ever made. I’m really happy with that, because it shows my deep respect for mother nature, but it also looks a bit chaotic and crazy – as I am. So this shirt is for the outdoorsmen and crazy professors. But actually nobody knows my little dirty plan of wearing somebodys selfportrait on a shirt except of you, dear reader. Hehe.

How much do you do by hand, how much by software?

As you can see in the storys, it depends on what I want to do and what I need. Sometimes I do everything with the graph-tablett, sometime by vector, sometimes by hand.

It's a brand new Morning! currently in the contest

What gives you visual inspiration?

Almost everything. Music, good books, good articles in the newspaper, friends, critiques, other designers and my girl.

What music do you listen to while working/ doodling?

I often listen to Major Lazer stuff (the Mad Decent Label is killer), nearly all Stones Throw artists (also a great label), Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve (great psychrock-stuff on a new dancefloorlevel) and a lot of Rap, Soul, Funk, Reaggea, Rave, Techno, Psychrock, Blues and everything between.

What would you recommend young aspiring designers who want to win shirt contests too?

Maybe: thinking and drawing, listen to critique and spreading the output.

Last words?

Biggupp to PB, MF, DX, TG. Okay sounds too cryptical. Yo biggupp to Frieda, Dad, Mike, Dennis, Mixi, Harf, Mother Nature, Whifffocker, Lidi <3, The Gang and all the loved ones.

The price goes to … Germany. Twice. Again. Hey, international Designers: how about catching up a bit?

Well, we should acknowledge that DXTRs first score here at Scribtee is a collaboration with French designer Reack. And the design itself is totally American: donuts, bullets, cops & coffee. So there should be enough international flavour for this to be a popular Scribtee: You’re under arrest, cause you’re the best. I just had to think of that awesome Mercury Rev video

Dxtr: You are a winner, cause you’re the best.

Drrrrriiiiiiiiiiinnng! Wake Up! You wimpy grub!

6265Peachbeach‘s Attila Szamosi turned the annoying ring of the alarm clock into a cutting-edge design! After Face Tattoo this is the second time he has a submission turned into a shirt.

Even though there’s nothing to like about annoying alarm clocks, there is much to like about this design. Congrats to Attila and to Dxtr who both are rewarded with 500 $ and a 50$ coupon.

And we also have a second prize this time: Ignacio from Spain sent us this funny interpretation of the tale of little red riding hood. With this shirt you might have something to explain to children… but this is worth the fun.

Little red cap wins 300 $ and a 50 $ shopping coupon.

I love zombies T-shirt

I love zombies T-shirt

Quick message: A new shirt came out today. It was one of those who were only some votes short of winning the grand prize, but due to their awesomeness we chose to have them printed anyway. We are happy to add its talented designer Mike Friedrich from our wonderful hometown Berlin to our range of winners.

Anyway – how can you run a T-shirt shop without having a decent zombie T-shirt?  

And it’s true, we love zombies. They’re the handiest and most useful employees you can think of. Their amazing strength enables them to carry large boxes of shirts, they have no interest in forming a trade union, they don’t need social security, basically they don’t need any pay at all. We just feed them some fresh brains and meat (slaughterhouse litters will do) from time to time, and keep them locked up. Yeah, sure, the noises and the smell were irritating at first, but with headphones you can do your work without any problems. You just have to make sure that the door is alw

We are happy two announce the next winners.

Rachel Bilson T-Shirt

Rachel Bilson T-Shirt

Nature was my mother

Nature was my mother

First off, here is a work of Kevoe, a new artist at Scribtee.com. “Rachel Bilson” was his first submission to scribtee – and woosh! Here he is as a winner. Of course the beauty of actress Bilson helped here, but the way he conceived it as a shirt makes this a well deserved prize. Hope to see more from you in the future, Kev.
 
Second, here’s the second great prize in a row for Berlin design wunderkind Lars “The W” Wunderlich from Peachbeach designer collective. Whatever it is he depicted there – it is freaking freaky to the max. Yet he called it “Nature was my mother“. So, have some understanding for weird creatures with a bunch of tubes and tentacles as a face. Nature made them, just like me and you.

We have two new shirts in store. We’ll start with the one that has been waiting for a while until we had found the ideal colour combination. It now goes on a cream tee shirt.

I’m talking about Alvaro Arteaga’s “inverted pirate”: a wooden Pirate with a human leg. Arrrrrrrrr!!!

Arrrrr ... my leg!

Arrrrr ... my leg!

No really, everybody in the house say Aaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Second, and not less great: Djooous’ “Confuse A Cat Ltd.” which is most probably the greatest Monty Python T-Shirt in the universe (regarding there aren’t so many yet). It was inspired by this sketch of Monty Python’s Flying Circus. You have a cat that doesn’t do anything? Confuse A Cat Ltd. ist at your service. If you love Monty Python, you need to have this T-shirt. Fellow confusers, you may now buy the T-shirt!

Some of you may have recognised: Scribtee not only looks a bit different now, it also hosts a second design contest. In cooperation with LG, producer of electronic goodness, Scribtee.com presents: The Life’s Good When Life’s Pink contest.  

Your task:

Send us a design that shows why/ when Life is Good. The slogan can be part of the design, but it doesn’t have to be. The other mandatory instruction: the colour pink has to appear in the design. Be it on a pink shirt or as a part of the drawing. The rest is up to you – it just should transport a good, positive, optimistic mood.

And for those who are not skilled at pens, Photoshop or Illustrator this time we can offer a way to participate to creative minds who are better at playing with words. The

Slogan contest

The topic is the same: It has to deal with a good life. Just enter some lines of text into the text box, format it with breaks, maybe press preview, and then submit it.
