The drawing is a GrowABrain tribute to Sid and Marty Krofft, the brothers with a penchant for 60′s Bubblegum Psychedelic childrens television. The Banana Splits (Hanna-Barbera’s Beatles) are fitting as the Pet Sounds house band. Bubblegum pop rock and roll!

‘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.

El Penguini

Posted on July 1, 2012

I thought I’d seen the last of penguins for 2012! I couldn’t have been more wrong. I was recently asked to produce a ‘Mexican Penguin’ character/logo for a casino. ‘El Penguini’ was born, El P to his friends. I love that Ive been able to utilise lucky 7 and unlucky for some! 13 in the lottery balls, they are my favourite magik numbers and beautifully my missus’ birthday is 13/7.

Here is an earlier version, I am quite fond of. Looks more like a mean ol’ crow but he is not without his charm.

I took inspiration from a Sombrero I used to sport on my first ever website back in 2006 after a trip to Mexico, Christ that was alot of work rendering those silver Mayan buttons!
