Ah Threadless. Every now and then I think it’s all getting very samey and dull, and I find myself thinking that the label ‘the new Threadless’ is all but printed out and ready to be applied to some other t-shirt site – and then, into my inbox pops an e-mail with new Threadless designs and one of them is always rather fabulous. I can feel its hands teasing my wallet open even now.
‘Sugar and spice’ is a great piece of work; it reminds me of the original manga of Ghost In The Shell. It shares a similar colour palette, and the bulbous, chaotic, inky machine shapes are reminiscent of Masamune Shirow’s robot designs. Top stuff.
