Congrats to the artist on the 3rd place win but the overall 10k winner was suppose to be announced today the 25th. On top of this according to a blog post

I made when the DBH 10k contest was announced the winner was originally suppose to announced on the 22nd. Guess they keep pushing back the date for what reason?

By the way this isn’t the first time DBH has let us down. Look here

Candy cannon by daleedwinmurray

Probably one of the most under rated artist that I have seen lately. Dale’s work

is unique and creative and would love to see more work from this artist printed.


Awkward Charm by jimiyo

Another great design from the every so famous jimiyo

(Jimmy Benedict)  This to me is not his usual style (which is nice) and seems like he is taking some inspiration from user matihole (Matheus Lopes) with this piece. Absolutely love it!


What is Inside A Girl by dcastle8183


Nice concept from Derrick Castle (dcastle8183

) and I really like this guys style. Here is a quote if you are wandering where the design concept came from.

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.

Surprisingly artist Jimmy Benedict lands 4th place @ Design by Humans (0)

I seriously thought Jimmy (jimiyo

) would come in the top 3 (for the DBH 10k contest) at the least. I mean look at this design! Anyway as always congrats on the win Jim and glad you made it as a finalist, and yes I believe it was worth you time :)

Was all the work worth it? Not sure. The $1000 is definitely not worth the time investment, but then Is having participated and reached the top tier level of the contest worth the time investment? Because theoretically, many new eyes have been exposed to my name and work. Still feel Defeated, but elated it’s finally over. Now I can start workin!

About fucking time they announced a winner of their Forever The Sickest Kids contest

. Many artist were left in the dark while waiting on a winner to be announced . This design was suppose to be on sale for Warp Tour, but that has been over for a while now. Something I don’t quite understand is the cash prize given to this design, its almost like its just a standard shirt of the day $750 winner when its suppose to be a whole prize pack, including $1000 . Maybe its just a type-o?

Congratulations to Incarnadine for winning today’s Shirt of the DAY award of $750 with the grand “Eternally, Always, Forever The Sickest Kids!” t-shirt design!

T-shirt retailer Design By Humans likes Obama (0)

Does this DBH labor day tee (of the day) have anything to say about which way the guys behind Design by Humans lean politically? Of course it does… was it the right thing to do however? They can print whatever the hell they want to, but what about the John McCain supporters? I think DBH should have stayed un opinionated on the political war and not even offer what most would consider not to be DBH material. Will they offer a McCain design for sale? doubtful I can’t even find a design submission that features John McCain (which will probably be an excuses not to print). Not very happy with the DBH crew lately. First they pretty much forget about their most recent design contest

and don’t even announce a winner. Now they are only showing one side of the political battle. Tsk Tsk

Some related comments from DBH on this design:

Some comments mentioned how we should’nt bring politics into this, but i think the artists on here are free to use any subject that inspires them. & with Obama, how can you not be inspired by a man who accomplished & wants to do so much to better our country. Politics might be harsh at times & you may think there’s no place for it here, but its simply unavoidable. Politics is a very important thing in any society. Its how us, humans, come together to help create a better place to live.& hey, the shirts on here, are afterall, designed by humans

it would’ve been in better taste to have a mccain shirt to keep this site neutral? thats seriously one of the most ridiculous things i’ve ever heard. this is a t-shirt site, not msnbc.com.

“stop politicizing an amazing shirt that does not express support but merely commemorates an important event in american history: the first viable black candidate for president.”

First win for Design by Humans artist killer_meowmeow (0)

Today’s shirt of the day at DBH. This guy has come along way with his submissions and his most recent work only seems to be getting better and appeals more to the dbh style. I love this print along with some of his other works – including this one titled “I DON’T NEED YOUR SUSHI, JUST STAY CONNECTED TO ME”.
