Portsea Island – Bored of Southsea

Posted on July 29, 2013

Celebrating the ‘Portsea Island’ Grow A Brain has produced this Hawaiian island inspired design, available now from BORED OF SOUTHSEA in 2 colour tee and hoody.

For those of you that live further afield from our City you may not know that the City of Portsmouth is prominently based on an Island called ‘Portsea Island’ and is the only ‘Island City’ within the United Kingdom.

This design is a tongue in cheek play between us here living on Portsea and also an Island somewhere a lot, lot closer to the equator such as the Islands of Hawaii with the design incorporating palm tree’s and tropical flowers conjuring up far warmer climates than we experience here, look and you’ll notice the silhouette of Portsea has been included as a nod to our home.

Shout to our man Russell Hardman aka Grow a Brain for working with us on this we hope that you enjoy.
Model: Jen Vidler

The Flaming Lips YES! ‘The Terror’ Tee

Posted on May 31, 2013

This design was based on the FLIPS motifs; Rainbows, lasers, skulls, fetuses, mirrorball’s, flying eyes, UFO’s, giant hands, peace signs, glitter nails… and Wayne Coyne’s drawings of fertile women. It is a visual homage to British psychedelic art, namely Alan Aldridge and Terry Gilliam of Flying Circus fame. All the type was hand rendered including the umbilical cord terror text.

GrowABrain & Longlive X Bored of Southsea

Posted on September 29, 2012

Absolutely stoked to bring you a seven colour print for Bored of Southsea. It means a great deal to me to do a print for these guys as they literally hold up the strong island.

Tote, Crew neck Jumper, and Tees

Available through


GrowABrain X Bored of Southsea

Here’s what they say:

Mr Russell Hardman, otherwise known as GrowaBrain, grew up on the mean streets of Portsmouth and still considers it home although residing in London. He’s spent the last few years working on everything from album art for power-pop trio Dodgy to designing T-shirts for London based Men’s fashion boutique Sefton. Amongst those, and literally countless other projects, he’s put on two incredible and well received exhibitions of his own work.

Longlive Cooperative is a new collective project that is for anyone and everyone. Primarily a vehicle for promoting nights in Portsmouth and London put on by Charlie Waddington, one of the DJs that made Pet Sounds an umbrella for the philosophy that a good tune’s a good tune and leave convention to duller nights.
This design was conceived as a nod to our hometown, taking a bit of a journey through Bored of Southsea tees that have caught Grow a Brain’s eye over the years, such as French’s Seagull
and ( Junior Bruce’s ) Jubru’s ‘Southsea Bronx Strong Island’ smiling sunshine
but all of course through an inimitable style that is Grow a Brain’s alone.

At seven colours on the T-Shirt and crew neck sweatshirt this is the largest that Bored of Southsea have done to date, with a thick, rich texture that does the ace image justice.

‘Pleasure Seekers’ & ‘Timewave Zero’ Tees

Posted on July 2, 2012

Pleasure Seekers - Leary Tee

'Pleasure Seekers' - Leary Tee

GrowABrain is producing a range Tees to celebrate the greatest philosophers of the psychedelic revolution. To kick things off we have the Timothy Leary ‘Pleasure Seekers’ Tee. The modern phenomenon of ‘Pleasure Seeking’, is a comment on the distracted society, outlined in Learys ‘The Intelligence Agents’ A work of social, moral, religious and scientific satire, including articles by and about people who are changing the meaning of freedom all over the world. This is the fifth and final volume of Dr. Leary’s ‘Future History Series’ with lots of fun pictures and ideas for your brain!

‘The headlights hypnotise, they take you off towards the sea into the night, you run away from thoughts you cannot hide’

The next on the list is:

Terence Mckenna – Timewave Zero Tee

‘We are on the brink of possibilities that will make us literally unrecognizable to ourselves and those possibilities will be realised, not in the next thousand years but in the next 20 years because the acceleration of invention and novelty and information transfer is at this point so rapid’. Its nearly here! Its all unfolding, to celebrate the Information Revelation be sure to sport one of these tees. If you are not familiar with Terence Mckenna’s Transmissions be sure to check out some of his videos on the global information network, thats right on schedule.

GrowABrain for ‘Charlie Does’

Posted on June 30, 2012

GrowABrain has teamed up with Charlie Does, a Filipino surf shop, to design a range of Tees to celebrate their story:

In 1979 Francis Ford Coppola released the epic film Apocolypse Now. If you don’t know it, it would be a good idea to watch it. It is amazing. The movie was located in and around a small and sleepy town called Baler which sits right on the pacific and is surrounded by the ever visible Siera Madre – which literally means Mountain Mother, though more like should be understood as: ‘That is one Mother of a Mountain’.

Most of the famous scenes of the movie were shot in Baler, or a place a little way out of the town called Charlie’s Point.

Balerino surfers owe a great gratitude to the movie, not least because when production ended the team left all the surfboards for the locals.

The most famous line of the movie goes like this:

Some GI: ‘Its pretty hairy in there. I mean it’s Charlie’s point!’


Well, Charlie Does!
