The Intensive Care Unit tee design features a truer to life illustration of Mario in a hospital bed getting an I.V. drip of 1 UP mushroom.

TheĀ Intensive Care Unit tee design is for the Mario fans that want a little reality added to their game references.

Lava Burn Ward Tee Design by ROCKHART

The concept is that Mario is always injured and must need some kind of healthcare and medicine. He always gets his cherished 1 Up Mushroom to give him back his life or to get extra lives. It is not 100% original as you can see the Lave Burn Ward tee also exist by another artist called ROCKHART (shown above). This Alberto Arni version however, takes a more realistic approach. Look at the perspective and details to see what I mean. The foot of the bed is foreshortened. Mario (implied by the 1 Up Mushroom and the mustache) has 5 O'clock shadow.

As for the artwork, It has a "Pleasentville"/"Sin City" type of effect where one tiny bit of the entire image is in color while the rest is in Black and white. It emphasizes the main point of the gag. The shading isn't 100% perfect as some things have shadows on the right, other things have it on the left. If the shading were consistent it would get a 5 stars but it's not so overall the design gets a 3.5 stars.

Adult Mario fans would enjoy having this tee in their collection. It is a bit too morbid for kids.

It is a good casual tee to wear anywhere or at any event that features Nintendo or gaming in general.

Bottom Line

The products and retailer Neatoshop are definitely high quality with a better price than most of the other Print On Demand services ($15.95 – $19.95 range for Tees, $29.95 for Long Sleeves, $45-50 for Hoodies). Most of the designs can be found elsewhere but the color and print quality will be weak in comparison. The brand of blanks that they use are Hanes and Next Level from the samples that I’ve seen, they have others depending on the color and style. It is nice to have fabric color options as each design usually has a few choices to choose from, so that is a major plus. There are plenty of sizes and styles as well. As for the printing method, they use the Digital Print or Direct To Garment (DTG) technique. Their methods with their printer are as close as possible to the traditional Screen Printed results. This means that their ink is laid on thick and their ink colors are bold and not muted like it is at most of their Print On Demand competitors. That is a big deal so the print method gets a 5 star rating, especially when taking the price into consideration. We feel that this Intensive Care Unit Tee is a worthy purchase and therefore should not result in any buyer’s remorse.
