Among Villains is having a sale until August 1st where all of their shirts are available for $10 + $5 for shipping. The printing is quality nice and the shirts are soft. The designs are very well done and this is a brand worth checking out. My favorite design is "Above the law" Other notable designs are the S.O.W.H.A.T.?. design and Honor Among Thieves.

Marcelo Schultz has absolutely amazing work. It's amazing to see that he sketches everything out first, then he takes it to the computer, which in my opinion is how you should do it. The final product is fantastic. See more of Marcelo Schultz's work here http://www.marceloschultz.com/

Wouldn't it be cool to see what it would look like if it were created today with all the nifty graphic advances that have been made in the gaming industry, well, now you can -
Here is the official movie poster for the Man of Steel directed by Zack Snyder. Why does Superman need a chainmail costume?
Electric Zombie has released a couple new posters and apparel with some themes based on Batman, Madmen, and Breaking Bad. If you're a Breaking Bad fan this may be a collector's item you would like to have. This is a super limited edition uncut version. Only 25 made. Features both the pink and white versions on 1, 24x36 screen printed sheet. UV clear coat periodic table over the entire piece. Each print comes with a bag of meth (Candy, duh), a wanted flyer and a fragile sticker.
You can buy it here for $45.
Seventh Ink is a t-shirt brand that has some cool shirts and Matthew, the owner, has gone to kickstarter to help expand the brand even further. He created some pretty cool illustrations for his "Animal Series" which he wants printed on t-shirts, buttons, stickers, and canvases. Yes, he wants to provide people with one of these badass illustrations on a canvas. Kickstarter is great, because it provides start-ups or even established companies to gain some money donated by cool patrons like yourself who believe in the product to produce them. You can pledge, but your card will not be charged until the goal is reached and not everyone has their goal reached which is sad, but maybe it was meant for the better.
Out of the 3 the Belligerent Bengal design is my favorite and reminds me of a drawing from a comic book. I'm actually impressed with how the owl came out, because it's so different compared to the rest of the Seventh Ink designs. I'm not a fan how the cup has such a different texture compared to the owl and it sticks out like a sore thumb. I'm thinking from a color separation perspective and that may be annoying to separate. The party croc is nothing special to me, but it is definitely well done. If you want to see these items produced donate here
Tara over at Maintenance Clothing had their site redesigned a little over a week ago and it was built inhouse from scratch integrating OpenCart into Wordpress. I think it looks very clean, professional, and runs very smooth. On top of all of that, they have some very nice designs. I personally like their new tank top that they released, which is a tri-blend tank top, so you know that's super soft to wear. What do you think of overall site? Practical? Anything you would change?
