t-shirt for Oxfam
Oxfam and Turtlehead have teamed up to produce 12 t-shirts over the course of 12 months by 12 different artists and I was honoured to be asked to be the first artist to contribute for the good cause. The list of international artist that will fill the rest of the months are mind blowing so I'm really happy to be in such good company.
It's the first time I've used The Beasts (albeit a cream version as opposed to the black they usually are) in something real rather than just for fun. I've just finally sketched out a full story book about one of these lads which I'm very excited about. I'll be working on this over the next few months and hope to have it ready to go soon.
The first batch of shirts were given away at the Electric Picnic last week from the Oxfam stall but I was away and missed the fun. Did anyone get one? I'd love to see how they turned out.
They will officially go on sale in the next few weeks if I'm not mistaken. I'll post about it when it happens.
Here's the oul artwork anyway.
