Billy has been the founder of many organisations over the years: The British Art Resistance and The Friends of the Enemies of the Western Buddhist Order being among them.
Here are T-shirts, button badges and limited edition prints sporting the emblems for a selection of other projects founded by Childish on his home turf: that strange corridor of land that lives between and betwixt the river and downs, or as Childish would have it ‘the Rusty Garden Shed of the Garden of England.’
All printing executed by the L-13 Perfect Department For Incorrect Screen Printing.
Released March 2019.
HAVE YOU SEEN THE WOODWOSE?
The Woodwose (the english term for the Sasquatch) has been driven out of its natural habitat. Childish, with the help of local woodsmen, has set up nesting areas amongst the oaks and beeches of Cobham Woods encouraging their return. Please do not enter the woods during the spring mating season as people will be killed.
NORTH KENT SASQUATCH
With sightings of the North Kent Sasquatch on the rise, Childish has formed this group to explore the coastal marshes and gather irrefutable evidence of this spectacular creature’s definite existence.
NORTH KENT SPACE PROGRAMME
For over 60 years the North Kent Space Project (twinned with NASA) operated in complete secrecy from the Isle of Grain, North Kent. In early July 1956 the UK’s first satellite, Orbitus, was launched into an elliptical low Earth orbit beating the USSR’s Spunik by over a year. In commemoration of this previously undocumented achievement the Friends of the NKSP are proud to present this T-shirt, print and badge.
The Wouldham Monorail opened to great acclaim in the summer of 1906, running a fast service to Eccles and Borstal. Once hailed as one of the great engineering feats of North Kent the line fell into disrepair after the last war. Further damage being sustained by Teddy Boys. The line has since lain dormant. With Childish, and his good friend Mahrak ‘Le Mole’ at the helm of a team of restoration experts (backed by a cartel of local public transport magnates) it is expected the monorail will be back in full service by 2021.
North Kent Sasquatch Team T-Shirt
In celebration of the Springbok’s resounding victory in the rugby World Cup the North Kent Sasquatch Research Group* is proud to release this yuletide T-shirt in Springbok’s team colours.
Money raised from the sales of this splendid T-shirt and badge set will contribute to the making and installation of 20 custom made nesting boxes for Cobham Woods, Kent, facilitating the reintroduction of the all but extinct Kentish Woodwose.
