Weekly art websites: T-shirt art
Tuesday 12 October 2010
Like to wear art on your chest? These websites have you covered. This week's selection of art websites visits artist-run T-shirt shops and investigates some of the creative designs dressing up common T-shirts.
Threadless - http://www.threadless.com/
Perhaps one of the best known and most hotly followed crowdsourced T-shirt design site, Threadless provides an endless array of beautifully designed T-shirts, all at an affordable price. Sign up to participate by scoring artists' designs, or creating and submitting your own, and your favorite artwork might just get printed.
Spraygraphic - http://www.spraygraphic.com/
Spraygraphic is both an online clothing store and a "social community for creative minds." The site encourages the creation of "Thought Provoking Style" and offers shoppers a wide selection of community-designed printed T-shirts and apparel.
Design by Humans - http://www.designbyhumans.com/
Design by Humans has a similar concept to Threadless, where winning designs from the site's ongoing T-shirt design contest are sold in the shop.
Emptees - http://emptees.com/
Emptees is a design website dedicated to the art of creating T-shirts. Users post images of T-shirt designs they have created or just love and the community of T-shirt-lovers shares its feedback on new designs.
