The 2018 Shiftee Awards

Time to bust out the red floor mats and put on your best racing suit, as the freshest and finest blipshift tees are strutting their stuff on the track walk for The Shiftee Awards! As we look back on the many artist and idea guys n' gals that made our lineup for the year possible, it was these works that took "apex everything" to heart and scored the Golden Torso.

Staff Picks From the Year

Apex Everything 80s

As a huge fan of the synthwave music genre, this spectacularly 80's tee was a match made in torso heaven. The artist really knocked it out of the park to the point that it also set the stage for the equally-awesome 70's version and others to come.

Llamaghini

Rarely does a design call out so forcefully to me. Up there with Rick Springfield's "Working Class Dog," the Llamaghini shows that anything is possible with the right animal. Much like determining the difference between a llama and alpaca, satire is a tricky game, but the Llamaghini delivered perfectly.

Fully Charged Into The Future

Thanks to all who submitted their amped-up ideas and designs to the Charge Into The Future Tee Design Contest in partnership with Volvo! It was a boxy grid full of awesome concepts to choose from, but congrats go out to Ian McLaughlin whose line-drawing lineup of iconic wagons became the "Safe at Any Speed" design you see here. That means he snags a jam-packed trip to Sweden in the New Year!

Save some applause for Chris Suan and Sean Zeeck too, whose designs had some current of their own, landing them spots as runners up. That means they scored some fine BS credit, but the designs may made into a Swede shirt at a later date!

Where There's Smoke There's Tire

California Fire Fundraiser Results

The Smoking Tire knows great California driving roads the same way ol' Smokey knows wildfires. The recent blazes have left an immense impact on the state and the state of its automotive landscape, but thanks to your support of the Carlifornia Dreamin' shirt design in collaboration with TST, we've raised almost $19,000 for charity!


All proceeds will be going to the California Fire Foundation to help support firefighters and their communities via an array of survivor and victim assistance projects in addition to community initiatives like fire education programs.
