{     Teetsy tees     }    

dudes_bonesy_01.jpg Teetsy is a t-shirt company comprised of five talented artists, all of whom design motion graphics for television commercials by day but by night make t-shirts for you and me. When asked why they felt the urge to open a tee line, they say that they wanted to stretch out a bit and design on a different canvas, to be able to enjoy making what they wanted without regard to popularity or sales. And so after bouncing a few ideas around, the crew eventually settled on the idea that they would each create their own design and launch with 5 different shirts. Problem was that they couldn't decide on just 5, so in late August of 2005 Teetsy went online with 10 fresh designs, each rad in it's own little way. Because you're wondering how they came up with the name, here ya go: "The name Teetsy came from a brainstorming session that rendered about 100 names. Teetsy had the word "tee" in it. It had the word "teet" in it. It sounded cute and not too serious. And, with a different spelling, it's an infectious fly." Teetsy soon have plans to expand their Chicago-based tee line and offer more shirts, silkscreened posters and both plush and vinyl toys. Until then however, don't miss our faves: - Straight off a county fair heavy metal mirror comes the the one-eyed skeleton ripping through your shirt: Bonesy. teetsy.jpg - Looking all cutesy and pretty, but ready to wrap you up and squeeze you tight is the octoshirt: Squidlove (worn here by our very own Jenn). - Just in case you're the absent-minded type, or know some folks who are, there's the pleasant reminder: Don't Forget to Die. - Destined to be loved by you designer-types and commercial junksters, get the mess with the circle-R: Registered.
