SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY!
It’s Sunday, and there is no better way to cheers away the weekend than with a creative and tasty Bloody Mary! This past Thursday, the Threadstaff went head to head in an epic and high-octane Bloody Mary competition, the likes of which you’ve never seen before. Below are the entries, and a HUGE thank you to Uncle Dougie’s for providing us with the delicious Bloody Mary mixes and food!

We hope you’re all having a fantastic Friday! Before we head off to enjoy the weekend, we wanted to share a sneak peek of next week’s new tees. This time around, we asked the artists what art means to them. Check out their answers, then tell us what art means to YOU in the comments!
"Art defines someone’s inner nature. The freedom to express abstract thoughts into reality. Art is more of the mind, not with the hands." Buy this tee now!
“Wow, that’s a hard question! There are so many different forms of art, like music, paintings, poetry, film, etc. But, to me, art is about expressing yourself, your emotions and your thoughts, and it’s up to each individual person exactly how it’s expressed.” Buy this tee now!
"Art means the things inside my head have a place to go. Whether it’s a story, a mood, an absurd idea, a color, a texture, a pattern. Sometimes it’s more like a jazz improv, a back-and-forth between my subconscious and the paper. 90% of the time, I don’t know what’s going to come out, and that’s art to me." Buy this tee now!
“Art is a powerful way to communicate with another’s soul. It speaks where words are unable to explain, and it touches the intangible unlike any other form of expression.” Buy this tee now!
"To me, art has always been a profoundly versatile word that rhymes with kart, tart, restart, smart, and K-Mart." Buy this tee now!
JIMDAHOUSECAT: “Being interested in art helps me escape the banal aspects of daily life.”
John Tibbott: “Art means a lot; it’s one of the first things in life I took a real interest in and something that’s stayed with me, from drawing animals as a kid to making tees as a big kid! It’s a boundless way to express yourself and turn thoughts and feelings into real, tangible things. Threadless has helped reignite my interest in art; it’s the antithesis of my day job, where I create designs based on budgets and briefs. Threadless lets me do anything, and that’s why I keep submitting!” Buy this tee now!
#DO52 WEEK 15: FOUND SIGNS
#DO52 is a weekly project to inspire you to create more art! We’ll announce a new theme each week. Post your submission in the blog comments. We’ll feature our favorites in this blog the following Friday.
#DO52week15: Snap a photo of a found sign!
- Wander your home, neighborhood, or workplace for interesting/funny signs and grab a photo. Feel free to spruce up the signs in any way you see fit (such as googly eyes, added letters/words, etc.)!
Here’s an example from Threadless HQ:

LET THE MUSIC BE YOUR INSPIRATION!
Over here at Threadless HQ, music is a crucial part of our everyday lives. We rock out to tunes on the way to work, enjoy jams together at our desks, and occasionally we are lucky enough to have musicians swing by the office to serenade the Threadstaff. With all of that said, it’s no surprise that we are beyond stoked for our newest Music design challenge! Before you start composing your submissions for this challenge, check out some of the great musical performances that have rolled through HQ:
