The Illustrated Mind is an independent t-shirt line based in Brighton that seeks to showcase the best in up and coming illustration via the most fashionable means… We have been commissioning and releasing designs since 2011 and have worked with the likes of Jack Teagle, Tom Sewell, Jiro Bevis, Ed Cheverton, Jon Boam and Gordon Holden to name but a few. Our aim each season is to develop a cohesive collection of illustrated t-shirts styled around a loosely devised theme. So we seek out the best and most notorious artists to collaborate with and whose work has caught our eye and made us think they’re awesome, we hope you agree!
Ben : I’m quite liking what The Illustrated Mind have gone for here. The style reminds me of the widely copied David Shrigley. I’m definitely liking the style, but I’ve never been a huge fan of the large text, image, large text format. I liken the art style very much in the bracket of – badly drawn things done by good artists. You can clearly see the talent but I just love the fact it’s so rough around the edges, if they looked too neat and too clean I think this whole range would lose it’s appeal. I must admit though, I have no idea if the space sharman is a reference to anything – anyone care to enlighten me? Anyway – go check ‘em out!
