Behind the scenes of our Australian Invasion Series production.

So a few months back, when the new range was being produced, we headed down to White Duck in our home of 9 years, Bath to film the new range for the Broken Antler promo video, took a load of photographs of the day and thought it kinda rude not to share as we know a lot of you guys like seeing the process behind the production. So below check out the Beastman design from the AnyForty & T-world The Australian Invasion Series being printed. Remember the range is available to buy now from the online store or direct from Urban Industry, Focus Scotland, The Chimp Store and our new stockists Mimm.

Big up Joshua, Bex and the whole White Duck team for incredible work as always!

Sweat, blood and ink

We’ve been chatting for the last month about this new AnyForty & T-world The Australian Invasion Series, and slowly leaking artist information to you. Well it’s not all just chat – products are being made as we speak, and on Monday we headed across to press pass and film the Beastman design being printed. The very first tee from the range to be made!

We can’t actually unveil the finished designs yet – still keeping that shit a surprise, but check out some sneak peeks from the printing process. Each design’s colours are mixed from scratch and the designs are all pulled by hand. Big ups to Dunc for doing an immense job on the first two designs – hope those blisters on his hands heal up quickly. It’s skilled, hard graft this, kids!

The range is coming sooner than you know. Thanks for your patience, it will be worth the wait! Trust!

AnyForty & T-world presents… BEASTMAN

8th March 2012 | Tags: , , , ,

Here is the first of our 10 Australian artists being featured in The Australian Invasion Series… Beastman.

Who is Beastman, to those who don’t know you? I’m a painter, illustrator, photographer and designer, based in Sydney.

What do you think of Australian street art compared to the rest of the world? I think our isolation from the rest of the world has forced us to create a very strong local art scene. Some Australian artists such as Dabs Myla, Ben Frost, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Kid Zoom, Anthony Lister, Meggs, Mark Whalen and YOK, have already branched out internationally and there are many more soon to follow.

How would you describe your style? The work I create is my interpretation of nature and its potential. It’s been developed through years of drawing characters and my love of design, symmetry, geometry, nature, life forms, graffiti, skateboarding culture, science fiction, the future and human behaviour.

What do you know about the UK in general? My father was born there. It’s cold in winter, it’s quite a small country with too many people in it. They have one of the best football leagues in the world.

When was the last time you were in the UK, and tell us about a memorable experience you had? I was in London in April 2011 with my wife. The best times we had were spent at the pub with our friends, and seeing an Arsenal game at Emirates Stadium. I went painting roller doors with Mr Penfold, which was fun too.

Unseen TV looks at The Outpost Project

If you’ve been hitting up the blog over the last week, you’ll have seen us banging on about our involvement in NEXT as part of the amazing Outpost Project in Sydney, Australia.

Just stumbled across this video from the unseenTVcrew. Pretty nice to see some moving pictures instead of the static ones we’ve been dribbling over last few days. Good to see our new homey Ben from Taken getting a lot of shine as part of the Secret Wars crew, good to see Nicole Reed who’s photography forms part of the NEXT project getting some camera time too!

People need to understand Australia’s got some serious artists fam! Keep your eyes peeled for more Australian love from us in the year of 12, until then, someone on our shores needs to do something of Outpost’s scale. The UK needs it. If only we had the time and money to do it – we’d be in there like badly-fitting swimwear.
