Being a graphic desingner myself, I'm always look at art as a means of inspiration, and being a bit of a t shirt/sneaker head you can't help but run across a few artists along the way as well.
My personal Favorites at the moment:

-Neckface
-Jeremy Fish
-Ed Templeton
-Hamburger eyes
-Dalek
-Mark Gonzalez
-Jim Phillips
-Jay Howell
-FOS (Mark Foster)
-Shepard Fairey
-Banksy
-Thomas Campbell
-Norman Collins (sailor jerry)

wow, there are so many..so there are a few.

I like Kevspeck ..

But that's not a Tee-shirt designer as far as I know, but just a graphic artist. check it out... very nice photoshopping

I wasn't talking specifically about tshirt designers, just artists in general. I only mentioned tees and sneakers as a means of exposure to some of these artists.
Kevspek has ssome really nice work!

I used to really dig what Deres Hess was doing at a time, but I think he has become really boring. Still he has made some great stuff imo.

paul klee, robert ryman, willem de kooning, marcel dzama, ad reinhardt, henry darger

i also studied art and am right not unfortunately a graphic designer as my means of income. i find graphic design to be the antithesis of the ideaology of art.

lately when i've been looking at art i've been focusing on folk/outsider art. i just find that most of the tme it's really fascinating.
