The 90’s were indeed a garish time.

Jelly

Jelly

It would seem though that Wolves, Owls, Lions are out and Jellyfish and Octopus are in.

Death Blooms

Death Blooms

Many artists have a preferred scale to work at; part of this is familiarity and habit, but certain media, certain styles, and certain subjects work better, or sometimes not at all, at specific scales.

Nesting Doll

Nesting Doll

here’s something about a negative. You can take an image and easily invert it and the result are objective and yet there’s something ominous and inherently subversive feeling about the resulting image.

The Great Goat

The Great Goat

Employing satanic imagery while avoiding the pitfalls inherent in the teenage angst connotation it often represents is a difficult line to toe.

Dark Coffee

Dark Coffee

Of course Death Drinks out of a pentagram mug; darkness, kitsch, pop, and irony. Nothing is serious to a certain age.

All Spaced Out

All Spaced Out

This image is simple, perhaps deceptively so, however it is no more complicated then it needs to be and works far better than it has any right to given its simplicity.

Best Pirates

Best Pirates

If you’re a fan of non-sense, randomness, or flights of fancy this may just be the shirt for you.

Durrer Rabbit

Durrer Rabbit

Durrer, and print artists in general, really haven’t gotten there due within mainstream culture, and perhaps the art world at large.

Crystal Seer

Crystal Seer

The whole kawaii ghoul look seems to be in vogue at the moment.

Black Hole

Black Hole

The design is sort of a subtle note- a tone poem in visual form.

David With Skull

David With Skull

One of the things about vaporwave is often that it feels like a non-descript mess of things meant to relax via the mindlessness of paying attention. This work doesn’t feel like that at all.

Tri-Ford

Tri-Ford

This image is exceedingly meta for those in the know.

Let’s Sacrifice Toby

Let’s Sacrifice Toby

As millennials grew older and struggled to hit any of the traditional milestones of aging e.g. stable careers, homeownership, kids; a prolonged adolescence and sense of bitterness and futility developed which Rhode’s designs seem to perfectly embody.

The Black Knight Rises

The Black Knight Rises

This is a pretty good mashup as there are plenty of obvious parallels between the two IP’s.

Lifeful Skull

Lifeful Skull

All there’s really to say is that it’s well done and kinda amazing. It could hint at a larger worker, an update for the memento mori.

Bettie

Bettie

As has been said before on this site it's usually very- difficult to pull off a design of a naked or scantily clad woman on a t-shirt. Tattoos are fine for some reason, women who wear these design are accepted, but for men in generally wearing these designs generally...

Sound City

Sound City

Many designs will take and try and modernize an old style. The entirety of the 60’s style was predicated on Nouveau with the colors turned to 11

Octoride

Octoride

This design ultimately seems to function in the same way that the decor of most of our homes, at least while young and single will: eclectic, chaotic, but somehow unified. The design feels like an intriguing encapsulation of both personal taste and experience.

Tubes of Wonder

Tubes of Wonder

There is no shortage of abstract works available on the various print on demand sites; even within the world of “fine art” the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of which works are celebrated can seem rather arbitrary to both those on the ins and outside of the art world

Contact

Contact

This image feels like you’ve just been handed a sci-fi horror slice of cake featuring the focal point, the piece of honor for the whole desert.

Possibilities in Order

Possibilities in Order

…a great design that even without referencing its source material is worth having for all the visual easter eggs it offers.

Botanical Pattern 10

Botanical Pattern 10

Beyond the composition, what really makes this design, and indeed all the designs within the artists ‘Botanical Pattern’, series is the unorthodox use of color

Coral Snake

Coral Snake

There aren’t really any myths or connotations to this particular species in spite of the fact that coral snakes are apparently the most poisonous snakes in North America…
