Based around the symbol of a white guitar, the designs by Jamie Hewlett include Phil Lynott, the hell raising front man of Thin Lizzy, the legendary Pete Townsend of The Who and the Modfather himself Mr Paul Weller.
Best known as artist and creator of comic book series Tank Girl and co-creator of virtual band Gorillaz, Jamie Hewlett has had an affiliation with Teenage Cancer Trust for a while; he donated various pieces of unique artwork specifically created for auction and specific projects in support of the charity, and in 2012 he created the logo for the annual Teenage Cancer Trust concert series at the Royal Albert Hall.
Pretty Green has also had a long standing relationship with the charity. In 2011 they designed the Tambourine limted edition t-shirt which was a huge success, and in 2011 Liam Gallagher donated £40,000 to TCT. “This is a charity close to my heart and something I continue to support both personally and through Pretty Green" he said, adding "Jamie’s designs are timeless like me”. It has been a cause that Liam has been involved with for a number of years and has performed at Teenage Cancer Trust’s concerts at the Royal Albert Hall both with Oasis, and latterly Beady Eye.
The unique designs include strong graphics emblazoned across the Pretty Green T-shirts in red, green and blue and details such as the back neck tape and guitar logo inside the T-shirt. Also available to buy are original prints of the artwork used for the collaboration, as well as limited edition white guitar pin badges.
T-shirts are priced at £55.00 and all proceeds will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust. The T-shirts are available from the Pretty Green stores in Carnaby Street, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham and online at www.prettygreen.com
