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.

Another contest round with many great entries coming to an end (I think I should do another list of Honorable Mentions soon). There were sure some designs that would have fairly deserved to take away the jackpot of 500 € cash (and  50€ worth of clothes), but then only two per month can do so. In this case this was Benny Kohl aka whyme from Munich. He already won Scribtee when it wasn’t even called Scribtee with his design Just Loving Music. Well, this was quite some time ago, it is almost sold out and so why not print another design of him? He submitted a series of five great tees, of which Connected emerged as a favourite of yours and ours. It’s funny to think of Jesus and his disciples as nerds, with Jesus Christ laying down his new SEO strategy on a business supper.

Like Benny, this month’s other lucky winner Lars ‘The W’ Wunderlich is a well renounced tee shirt designer from Germany. He already had some hopeful submissions in the race, his Mr. Tool finally made it to the top spot. We are happy to finally offer this handy fella of designers a textile home. All of those who weren’t fast enough to grab the Artist Kit may like Mr Tool too. Check more of W’s awesome stuff at peachbeach.de, the design collective that he is part of.

In the long time we run Scribtee.com this must be the first winner to come from the British isles. “I wanna be a Spaceman” was handed in by Mark “Snewo” Jenkins.

I still like the idea of it a lot. Mark explained: “Came up with this design while thinking about how many people wanted to be something exciting when they grew up (like a spaceman) and ended up in a regular 9 to 5.”

This makes it the ideal shirt for people who have their feet on the ground but their heads in the clouds, or in that case, stars.

…  generally and especially tapes !

This is the second Scribtee by Jonas “JonEz!” Kakoschke, creator of the great Free Hugs T-Shirt. You can read an interview with him here.

A tribute to tapes. Now that we’re used to play mp3s when we’re out tapes have run out of uses – except for triggering this certain mixtape nostalgia and looking awesome on T-shirts.

Never stop playing” is in the shop now.

 We have two new winners and they are called Jott and Artkore. Sounds familiar? Yep, they’re both guys who already won Scribtee once. However, this is because they submitted cool designs again.

Tape

Now with “Don’t Stop Playing” we finally have a tape inspired T-shirt. Jonas “Artkore” did this one and it looks a must-have to go clubbing.  You can never go wrong with audio tapes.

And we loved this one by jott. One of his other designs “Me, my friends and I” was also very popular amongst you, but finally we went for “Wild Business“: it’s a little different from All In Me, it looks classy and if you want, you can take it as a comment to the financial misery. I recently read an interesting thought about this “Would the crisis have happened if brokers were mostly female?” Was it, in short, Testosterone drive that made the reckless striving for more and more gain that made the banks finally crash? The picture of a proud deer in a fine suit, showing his antlers, fits this thought pretty well. Whatever was on Tayo’s mind when he made this – he made it well.

Congrats to you both ! Don’t stop playing (with your graphic software) !

We ended another contest round, this time a prolonged one. The Lulu & Jimi movie t-shirt contest took some of our ressources, just like the bomb we’re building with our main page Shirtcity.com

However, enough excuses, here they are:

Mr. JonEz! from Berlin, Germany (Yay!) gave us something to grin at with his Design: Fuck Free Hugs! Got Free Fucks! Sounds a bit rude, but JonEz! has enough art skills to put this idea into a design that is well worth being a Scribtee. Congratulations.  Check out JonEz!’s site artkore.de

Artill from Trier, Germany sets a counterbalance with his “Muse” – an imposting, almost classical design of Zeus’ daughter, the goddess of creativity. What could fit better to Scribtee? She shall be our patron from now on! His preview image only gives a hint of these fine details, so expect an awesome T-shirt. We can’t wait to see it. Meanwhile, check out Artill’s site: artill.de

Two guys from Germany whose sites start with “art”.  A nice ending to this round. Meanwhile the battle rages on at Scribtee.com

Hey Folks. Let us give the world to you! (spot the reference?)

We put a new t-shirt online today. It’s from serial Design contest winner Ninhol from Brazil (who has already given us the cosy Favela for girls and the lovely Luz lightbulb. He continues his patch rug style and has created an image of the whole world. With its very own borders though.

The “World Map” T-Shirt is ready for purchase now. Find more about Ninhol here and visit his awesome website, too.

YOU Messe design contest

Some while ago we had a stand at the great German youth fair YOU. Apart from distributing coupons and introducing our business with Shirtcity and Scribtee we reduced the Scribtee T-shirt design contest to a handier modus: by providing felt pens and papers with a T-shirt silhouette. This was quite well received and about 500 scribbles were handed back to us during these three days. Of course we didn’t expect to get a new ready-to-use tee design for Scribtee, it was more to show what we’re doing and let the people have some fun.

We encountered some really talented young people and were surprised to see some take an entire hour to sit down and draw in all this loud and crazy mess of the fair surrounding us. This resulted in a nice gallery that decorates our office now. Winnes were awarded with some nice prices. See the gallery after the break.   Read the rest of this entry »
