One of the great things about checking out indie craft shows is seeing work that you know is going places. At last spring's Patchwork craft fair in Santa Ana, I visited the Blue Platypus booth and fell in love with every single t-shirt there. The designs are vintage-inspired, but are given a flair that makes them unique and fresh instead of stodgy and old feeling. Check out a few Blue Platypus gems with me!
After the jump, more graphic tee goodness from this Southern California based tee company.
When I saw this shirt, I immediately thought of the movie Black Dynamite. If you haven't seen that movie, it's a definite 10 thumbs up - rent it, then buy this shirt and be the best funky 70s version of yourself you can be.
Summer's still got a few weeks left, this tee would be right at home on a day trip out to Catalina!

I love how some dogs have a super-iconic, easy to recognize shape to them - these cute French Bulldogs have a whimsical print contained within their silhouettes to add to the charm!
