The most recent addition to the pack, “Guardian" by Ralph Pykee is one of this week’s newest designs! We asked Ralph where his favorite place to create art was, and he gave us a quick glimpse into his life:

“I really don’t have a specific or favorite place to make my stuff. For me, anyplace works as long as it’s comfortable and has less people. Although, it depends on the type of people. But I really do want to have my own workstation someday. I’m actually saving for it, because right now, I work most of the time at the office and sometimes at home when I’m alone.”

THE 8TH ANNUAL THREADLESS FAMILY REUNION WAS BEYOND FAR OUT!

We had a blast (off) this weekend at the 8th Annual Threadless Family Reunion. Threadless truly is made up of the best community and artists in the universe! It was so good to see familiar faces and meet new pals while we played games, bounced in the bounce house and watch Wolf Waffles create awesome, goofy GIFs.

A major highlight of the day was announcing the Bestees!

Our first award went to our Community Member of the year, Christina Moore aka christina.a.art, who will receive $2,000! Christina diligently participates in every single weekly #DO52, contributing awesome art, no matter how wacky our theme is. She’s been a member since 2013, and has casted her vote on 43,146 designs. Congrats Christina!

Our second award, Collab of the Year, went to Daniel Arzola, aka goliath72 and Chris Phillips, aka cpdesign! Chris and Dan will split $2,000 for their collaborative awesomeness. Together, these dudes created a design called Training Day, which earned an average submission score of 3.71 and was really the cat’s pajamas.

Our third award went to Stacy Eyles aka mechanicalrobotpower for Design of the Year! The super rad artist behind the year’s most super rad design has been a member since 2008 and has racked up 51 submissions this year. With a submission score of 3.58, his design “It’s Dangerous to Go Alone! Take This” means that if anything, Stacy will be taking home $2,000!

Our fourth and final award, Designer of the Year, went to Francis and Lawrence Minoza, aka nicebleed! Proving that two heads are better than one by working together under a single username, this designing duo have been members since 2009. Racking up 40 submissions and 22 printed designs this past year, these brothers have certainly made their mother proud - especially when we send them $2,000! 

Congrats to all 6 winners!

The street artists who collaborated on the mural didn’t let a mid-afternoon rain storm get them down.  Check out the finished product created by Czr Prz, She Was a Monster, The Lie and Jc Rivera.

The fun didn’t end after the day portion. At night, Ezra Furman’s performance was, to say the least, out of this world…
