Designer Ian Leino has a new shirt today, Thursday June 21st at TeeFury.com that’s a skateboarding themed design of the classic TMNT villain Shredder, illustrated in a retro graffiti style. It’s just $10, but only for 24 hours. After that you’ll be able to get it printed on American Apparel tri-blend shirts through Ian’s own shop. Here’s a quick word from the artist about the design:
“I have a theory that the TMNT and Shredder were really just skate park rivals – the Turtles were loose and artistic while Shredder was all about precision and technical perfection. Once a big Hollywood producer got ahold of the story, it quickly morphed into this weird thing with talking rats, vengeance stories and armies of ninjas. Everyone involved got huge checks for the rights to their story, but were forbidden from ever telling the truth, lest it topple the empire of cartoons and action figures that had sprung up. It was supposed to be about the skating, man!”
“Code of Arms”, my newest t-shirt design that celebrates the varied world of programmers, database managers, IT professionals, and all of the other code monkeys out there, is now for sale, only at Shirt.Woot!
With the current political climate, the time is right for a new party to arise. One that stands against the wealthy corporate Empire AND the freeloaders. One that represents the hard working and entrepreneurial working class. One built on skill, leadership and bravery, that appreciates innovation and knows just how far to bend the rules before they snap.
Shake up the establishment and show your support of your local Smuggler Party (and look dashing in the process) with this 3-color print hand-screened on Navy American Apparel 100% soft jersey cotton shirts that both look and feel amazing!
Alternate shirt colors, as well as iPhone cases are available at Redbubble.com
I was never a big fan of doctors as a child, but there were two that always held a magical sway over me: Doctor Who and Dr. Seuss. Somehow it felt only natural to pay homage to both by combining them into this one design.
Just in time for the holidays, these t-shirts and greeting cards are available now in my own shop.
Shirts are printed on American Apparel 100% soft jersey cotton shirts. Greeting cards include a Doctor Who-themed inscription, written in a Seuss-ical style by my good friend Josiah Bancroft.

For the “Threadless Loves Your City” competition, I’ve created a design for my hometown of Ashevill, NC and you can vote for it here: Vote for Namaste, Y’all at Threadless.
A little background: Asheville, NC is a town of diversity. Nestled into the Blue Ridge mountains, it’s home to a wide range of outdoor activities but also has a bustling downtown scene. Over the past few years, it’s been lauded with a wealth of awards celebrating its diverse culture, including:
• Top 25 Art Destinations (American Style)
• Beer City USA (3 years in a row)
• America’s New Freak Capital (by Rolling Stone)
• America’s Happiest City (Self magazine)
• & America’s Best Place to Re-Invent Yourself (AARP)
Just to name a very few.
Asheville has been declared one of the best towns for street musicians or for small businesses, for artists or outdoorsmen, and is often in the top 10 cities in the US for top arts cities, great food towns, most romantic cities, and any number of other distinctions.
There’s no way to sum up a town like this in one design, but I thought it would be fun to show a cross-section of Asheville’s community all riding a multi-person mountain bike together, to show that they’re all working in harmony to move the city forward, and I’ve chosen a blue color scheme to represent the Blue Ridge Mountains. Don’t forget to vote for Namaste, Y’all at Threadless.

Tremble in fear, for no t-shirt can stand before the mighty T-Rex! His taste for fine cotton can not be sated, and even the most awesome and majestic of garments are soon shredded in his mighty jaws.
The terrible crunching action is yours to control in this 4 color oversized print, currently up for scoring at Threadless.
