Oxfam rocks Electric Picnic 08!

Lucky us at teeandtoast got the chance to design this tee-rrific t-shirt for Oxfam Ireland to sell at this years wonderful boutique festival Electric Picnic 08. After looking at a few of the designs I had doodled for them they choose this illustration of a festival campsite - tipee's and all! It's printed bright oxfam green on a white fairtrade cotton tee, and a limited edition of 50 are only on sale at the Oxfam Ireland festival shop for a super dooper €15!!! wow! So make sure it's your 1st stop at the festival as they aren't going to be around forever!

The Oxfam Ireland Shop will also be kitting revellers out in the required festival chic, funky & fun vintage and costume jewellery! Their campaigns team will also be on hand with lots of activities (fancy customising those wellies?) to keep everyone busy. And as if there wasn’t enough aural goodness floating around Stradbally, they’ll also have an open mic set in-tent with some very special guest performers.

Electric Picnic kicks off on the 29th of August and runs until the 31st.

leaving work early....

I left work a little early today :) The sun was shining all day and I knew it wouldn't last forever! So i got all the web orders out, dashed to the post office and headed for a big walk on the local beach - Portstewart Strand! I started off by having a wee paddle - which suddenly became a big wade, but i wasn't brave enough to go for the full dip! All good things come to an end - I'm now back in the studio about to toast away the evening... fingers crossed i can do the same tomorrow!

p.s i didn't build the sandcastle... i just liked it!

Flaming Lips in Belfast!

Last night I went to see wonderful The Flaming Lips who where playing in Belfast as part of the Belsonic Festival. It's my second time seeing the band - who never fail to deliver a magic stage show. Lead singer Wayne Coyne made his famous entrance like a bubble boy - in his big inflatable ball. The show continues with all the things I love... rainbows, colourful confetti, giant party poppers, dancing people on stage in fancy dress & songs that sing about toast!

I know a girl who thinks of ghosts
Shell make ya breakfast
Shell make ya toast
She dont use butter
She dont use cheese
She dont use jelly
Or any of these
She uses vaseline

We also got there early to check out a pair of local boys Oppenheimer who also put on a great show as usual! Keep up the good work :)

whilst waiting for the flaming lips to come on stage last night i was handed this note book. it is 35/99 notebooks that are traveling around the world as some kind of a little experiment. my contribution to the book was inspired by the weather - on our way up to belfast we drove through the darkests clouds, deepest puddles and an ocean of rain fell from the sky - so I was dreading that the gig might be a soggy affair... but my lucky raincloud hoody came to the rescue and it was yeah,yeah,yeah A-ok!
