Tshirt Terrorist has been synonymous with cool, original South African t-shirt art since back in the day (read: 2008, when we launched our online shop). Since those early, formative years, we’ve populated our store and your world with the often mad, sometimes crazy conceptual creations of Tshirt Terrorist founder and owner, Harry Fokker.
Fokker would, through means both various and dubious, inspire, conjure up even, the ideas behind the seriously epic designs you’ve come to know and love and in most cases, own. What we really wanted though, for some time, was to involve local graphic designers, illustrators and artists more inclusively in the process.
Yes, Harry Fokker has some great ideas, concepts with staying power and relevancy, concepts that mimic and parody and barb, and through the skills of our league of freelance and agency designers they’ve become seriously awesome tees, but these artists have their own ideas too, and most importantly, their own unique take on things, their individual and captivating styles – their signature ‘vibe’ if you will, and this is how the idea for our new Signature range of designer tees came about.
We’ve thrown the doors of our shop wide open. Select designers will submit their own work for sale on our locally sourced, fashion fitted shirts. Each designer, either a previous member of our team, or new talent we have sourced, once selected, will build their range of signature tees – owning the creative process, producing the kind of art they want to share and becoming a part of a platform that holds the ideals of t-shirt design as the pinnacle of its development.
At Tshirt Terrorist it has always been about the Art, not the Copy. That beautiful, gritty, heart-stopping moment of creation; the passionate compulsion that drives cutting edge design and delivers it to you, not merely the customer, but the wearer of something real and beautifully realised – that something special and definitely, definitively different. A genuine, originated artistic moment, encapsulated in a t-shirt that easily and quite simply, perfectly, becomes a part of who you are.
With our Signature range, as we allow artists to truly free and express themselves, we will continue to hold these ideals true. Harry Fokker will still generate the concepts behind the ongoing Tshirt Terrorist range, but with the assistance now of designers who are likewise creating their own tees and are by extension closer to both the process and the product. And this, of course, will result in more awesome tees, more often. Long live the t-shirt, and long live original t-shirt art. Thanks for your continued support!

Here at Tshirt Terrorist we’re not averse to a little controversy filtering through the rosy tinted lens. We actively, and under the right conditions, positively encourage it. Remember that Robert Guy, who took a tumble? Well, our Commander-and-Thief wishes to copy him so perhaps it’s time we lend him a hand.
Do us a favour. Either repost this pic on your social media. Or retouch other fall-guy memes with Zuma’s mugshot. Go wild and let’s open this up again. Ripe for the picking is this guy right here. Both of them, truly, but this guy?This guy? Right here. Right now. The Rand should not be the only thing that tumbles.
best bet… repost your new #zumamustfall memes to our facebook and we’ll share them:

Male university students in North Korea are now required to get the same hairstyle, again, as their leader Kim Jong-un.
Earlier this year, a state-sanctioned guideline was introduced in the capital Pyongyang, followed by a country wide roll-out. The decree had its detractors, and for good reason: “Our leader’s hairstyle is very particular, if you will,” one source reported. “It doesn’t always go with everyone since everyone has different face and head shapes.” One North Korean, now living in China, stated the look was unpopular as it was thought to make those doning it resemble Chinese smugglers. “Until the mid-2000s,” he was quoted, “we called it the ‘Chinese smuggler haircut’.”
The new decree, made shortly after the successful test-launch of a submarine ballistic missile on May 9, has nearly every student up in arms. “This new style is impossible to duplicate and harder to manage”, says one student who wishes, obviously, to remain anonymous. “You get the edges and sides clipped and the top wind-blown wild and gelled – just right – and the next minute the little quiff of a fringe moves out slightly and there’s this soldier breathing down your neck! What am I going to tell my parents if I get detention? We’re spending a fortune on barber bills and there’s hardly even any food to eat in this country! I’m thinking of giving up my Socialist Studies and smuggling myself South of the border. At least I have the right haircut for that.”
Another student, with similar woes – sheltering from the wind and applying gel repeatedly using a compact mirror, tells of how the guideline has sparked a capitalist revival in the hair-styling industry, with barbers and stylists competing directly for customers by not only lowering their prices but showcasing their skills in marathon blowdry show-offs, events often marked by fete attractions, selfie parades and de-popularised music from Seoul. The decree has also allowed capitalism to rear its ugly, if not entirely shaven head in a more predictable manner, with figures from the small appliance retail sector and the home cosmetics industry showing sharp increases in the sales of blowdryers, hot air turbo stylers, ionic hair setters, spray gels, volume and controlling mousses and extreme texture root lifters, as well as a variety of other items not traditionally acquired by and associated with your average 16 – 25 year old North Korean male.
“One wonders where it will all end,” ponders a less than emphatic youth complete with quiff, wind-structured stand-up gelled-tips and mousse-managed flairs, “Should our esteemed leader one day begin losing his hair we’re going to be in for a very awkward and uncomfortable period in our country’s officially recognised history.”
