All of the amazing artists who have contributed have been hand picked from “down under” (Australia!) including Meggs, Numskull, Purdi Petunia, Travis Price, Ken Taylor, Deb, Ben Brown, Dale Bigeni, Ben Bigeni and Beastman.
If you’ve never tried an AnyForty t-shirt before this is a great time to, the quality of the prints, material and packaging are second to none. The ranges that they’ve been releasing have always been excellent but this latest one is extra special with each t-shirt also coming with a 24 page artist specific version of T-world!
Head over to http://blog.anyforty.com and find out all about the artists and the new range, while you’re there grab one of the sweet new tees too!
“To celebrate the recently released AnyForty & T-world The Australian Invasion Series, we got our mate, and all round director/animation/design genius Broken Antler to cook us up some visual candy to help promote the new drop.
Filmed on location at White Duck Screen Print in Bath and at Broken Antler HQ just outside of London, with some lovely Rick Nunn shot images from our lookbook shoot thrown in the mix, it truly is a family affair!
Seeing as us, a UK brand, hooked up with some great Australian artists to make the range, there was only one choice for the soundtrack, when UK producer Beat Butcha remixed one of our favourite Australian mc’s Brad Strut’s track “Official”, we needed it badly! We got the rights to use it a few months back and the whole promo was built around that head nodder.
Everything about this whole project screams official, we don’t fuck around, we hope you enjoy the promo and more importantly the tees!”
This 8″ tall figure is limited to only 30 pieces and will be released on June 1st 2012. Keep an eye open for a price and place to buy this beast!
