What is Inside A Girl by dcastle8183
Nice concept from Derrick Castle (dcastle8183
Haven’t we always wondered what is inside a girl? My mother told me it was sugar and spice but I don’t believe her. Some people have to find out for themselves…
Couloured fire dragoon by conker
A somewhat new artist to the scene but has been around on DBH for some time. I think the whole breathing out whatever design has been done before but this is a very nice take on that concept. Also look at the placement, it would truly make an awesome printed tee.

Some small shops tend to have the most unique and under rated designs. Below I have listed a few that I think deserve recondition and your purchase If your a regular on Taddict you might already know some of these.
From a bigcartelfeatured in the past
The multilayered silkscreened tee has an oversized front print with a Skull (purple) and hands and knives (night-glow white so yes these guys are GLOW IN THE DARK!!!!).

A rose is a rose… Ink Authority Brian Morris’ kick at the inkbath. Hand mixed colors on Brick; you will love this feel of this shirt, a UNISEX cut.
From my most recent inspiring artist comes the store Straw Castledcastle8183
The meaning of this design is "The Judgment of Evil." In tattoo art the Ape represents Evil and the Dagger, Judgment.
I usually stay away from this shop

Don’t really know a whole lot about Rasputin
Monk/Priest who proclaimed spiritual powers beyond the ordinary, was the ‘pet’ of Alexandra (Russia) because he could stop her son’s bleeding (hemophilia). He was a hard one to knock off, took several stabbings, being shot, and being poisoned to do him in. He wielded an abnormal amount of power to Nicholas, Tzar of Russia before the fall to the Red Army.
He was a Russian monk that weasled his way into the Royal Family of Russian. He became one of the most influsential figures in the last czarism of russia. He was said to see God and was following His word. When he died Rasputin was shot, drugged, hung and drowned before he died (… there might have been more ways he was “killed” but i forget them).

Last week you were introduceddcastle8183 Derrick Castle Nashville Mafia
Hey ya, Derrick here. I’m a designer and have been in the industry
professionally for 10 years. I have been interested in design since I
was a wee little child, drawing pictures of Popeye and anchors on my arms at a very early age. I have spent the majority of my professional career working in the corporate office culture as a graphic designer. In my evening hours I have done works for numerous client such as Hank Williams III, The Crickets of Buddy Holly fame, Sk8grl Merchandising, CoolGirl Decks, Double D Records as well as many other mom and pops.
I’m currently trying to get my Merchandising brand, “Straw Castle” off the ground.
The Straw Castle
influences. I can find influence in many a strange places… whether
it be food, drink, sleep or culture. One of my biggest influences has
come from the tattoo culture through personal heroes such as Sailor
carried through in my work. I’m also inspired by music, in many
different genres, particularly Eastern European Gypsy. I think one of the reasons I like this style is because their sound is so eclectic.
They use many different types of instrumentation from different places and cultures. Like this style of music, I find my self trying to weave different combinations of style and cultures into my design work.
I have few different goals in life, the Straw Castle
I’m currently pushing out as many designs as I can, to cement my niche in the tee design community. I’ve presented some of my work to communities like emptees.com designbyhumans.com Straw Castle
Here is Derricks first design for newly launched store Straw Castle titled “Thus Be Judged”. Looks awesome! Yours for $15.99

This is a Design I came up with inspired by Cuban imagery. I’m a huge fan of the Cuban American Culture, Cuban food and drinks… such as the Mojito. This is just a glimpse of Cuba. This design was hand drawn and colored in Photoshop and Illustrator.
