Shirtheads - featuring ... caanan?

Monstar: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls and all other anthropomorphic personifications, my name is Monstar and this is my friend Bunnee
from the hit webcomic aptly titled Monstar
Bunnee: I don’t know if you could describe it as a “hit” webcomic. Unless you’re referring to the one hit we get each day from my mum?
Monstar: Anyhoo…we’re here today because Caanan has injured his back and Shirtheads will be out of action for the next few weeks. So we took it
upon ourselves to step into the breach (of copyright) and take over the Shirtheads strip this week.
Bunnee: How did he injure his back? Did a Predator rip out his spine or did he throw it out “on the job” (wink, wink)?
Monstar: You can ask him yourself, because he’s our very speci

Sometimes I like to pick shirts merely because I’d like to have a go at drawing my own rendition of some funky designs, and I really liked this little guy…

by Rhys McDonald

(I had to resist REALLY HARD to do a strip based on this one ;o)

What do you think the differences are between the lives of someone who’s ugly, and someone who’s beautiful? (By standard definitions of course. It’s all subjective)

I never get whenever you see those gossip rags with the headline ‘celebrities caught without make up’ or something and you look at them and they’re just average joes, no better than the guy over there with the pot belly or the homely woman at the petrol station – if someone is even remotely okay looking they’re instantly distinguished from the rest of us schleps. If you’re only loo…

Shirtheads - featuring Natalie Tyler

This week’s Shirthead victim runs the
Unofficial Redbubble Tshirt Blog

and, contrary to her redbubble avatar,

Natalie Tyler is not a piece of fruit. Although, like a piece of fruit, peel off a layer or two, and you get something altogether delicious.

Let’s eat!

This is the tshirt, by the way, folks… :oD

So, what is a manchild?

I have witnessed two types of manchild in their natural habitat and interestingly, they are almost polar opposites. One has the appearance of a man but displays Peter Pan-like qualities, namely the refusal to act like an adult. Often they will give the impression that they are fully grown adults but scratch the surface and you will find a fourteen year-old. Typical behavior includes: dressing like a teenager, owning one or more games consoles, s…

Shirtheads - featuring Ross Robinson

It’s the age old question… quantity or quality?
In the case of Ross Robinson

what happens if you have both?

I had a virtual smorgasbord of designs
to pick from, but this one

screamed to me with a very simple gag, so let’s get to it!

If a robot and a monkey had a child in this day and age, map out that unfortunate love child’s life for us…

I actually think a robot/monkey hybrid would be a very lucky child in this day and age. People love robots; people love monkeys, so a combination of the two would be insanely popular. He would be the cool kid in class, the one who always got picked first when choosing teams and the first one to get laid. Later on, he would be the singer/songwriter/lead guitarist in a kickass insanely popular indie band that never loses its credibility des…

Shirtheads - featuring Simon Sherry

This week’s blockbuster, widescreen, now in technicolour edition of Shirtheads features – dun dun DUN – The Killbots

So grab some popcorn, turn off your mobiles, and get your feet off the seats! do you do that at home?! (Yes sir) as we say ‘howdy’ to Simon Sherry

( Lord of the Aussie comickers’ Pulp Faction group )

Explain the process of Killbots. Where did they come from and how do you make them?

The killbots series pretty much started as an experiment in Adobe Illustrator – I had stumbled on a couple of techniques in the process of working on some other pieces, and as is usually the case, I take that new discovery and get sidetracked!

To be a little more specific, I tend to approach each bot in as freeform a method as possible, just laying down shapes …

Shirtheads - featuring Tambatoys


Tambatoys plays in the sandbox this week!

I have ordered my own print of this tee to wear til it fades, or I rip it on something (I’m too lazy to avoid sharp objects) and I love it! for two reasons… 1. It celebrates a carnival/sideshow industry stalwart and b) because sometimes I feel like I too, am helpless against a higher power.

Whether it’s fate, or the claw, let me go, dammit!

The Claw

What is the attraction of the claw machine?

I will admit I was super in love with these arcade games when I was a kid, and I spent many hours and 20c coins trying to win myself toys. When I was 20 though I remember taking my 7 year-old cousin to the movies and there was a claw machine there she begged me for a $1 to play. I gently explained that they were rigged and a waste of money a…

Shirtheads - featuring Johdie

Check your pinky fingers, folks, and let’s see how they stack up against the boundless talents of this week’s Shirthead, Johdie

This week featuring several different shirts actually within the strip,

but inspired by this one…

What does music mean to you?

Music and art go hand in hand for me, I can’t have one without the other. I get plenty of ideas from music. My art’s a bit mixed up.. my personality is a bit mixed up.. and my taste in music is all over the place. I’ve always disliked anything typical. When I was a kid my favourite song was Joy to the World from the Forest Gump soundtrack.. I just couldn’t get into the Spice Girls.

If you could live in any period of history, which would it be?

I like things from each recent decade. People didn’t whinge and kids weren’t…

Shirtheads - featuring Paul McClintock

This week, folks, dust off your cerebellum, grab a spot by the roaring fire of your own hypothalamus, and open your mind to the universal language of… Rawr!

by Paul McClintock

Do you believe in monsters?

Monsters absolutely exist. Have you seen any of the crazy shit that lives at the bottom of the sea? Not just disgusting blobby things with a million eyes, but even cute stuff that you wish you’d invented like Kiwa hirsut, a weird crab thing with luscious blonde fur. Seriously, nature is awesome… so much better than Lord of the Rings.

Do designs come naturally to you? Do you scribble stuff down and everything’s gold, or do you rework and rework until you’re mad?

I can’t stand to see a blank piece of paper. It must be drawn on! I spend about 27 hours a day doodling or thinking abou…

Shirtheads - featuring BigFatRobot

Howdy Bubblers!

I’m pleased to announce the guinea pig has been put through his paces, and found to be healthy. So, here be the first ‘Official’ shirtheads strip, featuring BigFatRobot

- followed by a brief interview. Enjoy!

The shirt featured is Zombie Waitress. Why do you think zombies are so cool right now?

They’ve always been cool. Afterall, monsters that my gran can outrun are funnier than a clown drowning in an ocean of cream pies. However, we are now getting those uppity new zombies like the ones from “I Am Legend” – fast zombies with rudimentary smarts, like bogans rushing to the bar for Happy Hour priced Jim Beam and Cokes.
(For our non Oz chums reading, bogans are Australian rednecks.)

How much thought goes into your tshirts? Are you just doodling, and going ‘h
