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.

A new tee has come to our store and its hotness has caused Scribtee’s overall temperature to raise by some degrees. Credit for that goes to Rachel Bilson, an actress most commonly known for her role as Summer Roberts  in The O.C. , but also starring in several full length movies.

Rachel Bilson

To create this design, artist Kevoe used one of the most beautiful photos there most be of her, gave it a nice rasterized look and added some graffiti in pink. This goes on a comfy AA shirt for men or ladies in the wonderful creme colour (like white, but not as boring). Beauty meets style on the Rachel Bilson T-Shirt, new at Scribtee.

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.

(Spot the reference?)

Please welcome our new Scribtee designs that were absolutely worthy of being printed and worn on T-Shirts and winning 500 €.

Connected

Number one: Connected. The last business meeting of Jesus and his desciples, maybe argueing about future strategies, whether or not to invest in new SAP software or coordinating forces for Judgement Day. A design by Benny Kohl, who scores his second Scribtee – the first one was “Just Loving Music”, but that was way back in the days. So we are happy to see him returning.

mrtool_blog

Number two: Mr. Tool. This handy fellow is the swiss army knife for everyone who has a creative job. And certainly a good friend of Lars Wunderlich, who brought this little Frankenstein creature to life. Since Everyone Can Be An Artist Kit is sold out in some sizes, this may be a great opportunity for some people who missed that.

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.

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.

 The prizes:

As we teamed up here with a second host we both have a stake at rewarding the winners. That means great prizes:

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.

mr-tool

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.

Wild Business

Wild Business

We have released a new tee shirt for your tee pleasure. It is called Wild Business and it is one for say … critics of capitalism. Lovers of good design. Tee maniacs. Women who always wanted to express what they think about the Alpha-male behaviour of business entrepreneurs, self-obsessed money makers, greedy speculators … or of course for men who think the same.

Wild Business was conceived by Jott (aka Tayo Gross) from Germany, the Designer who also created “All In Me“. If you’re interested you can learn more about him in our interview.
