These funky designs from Sarah Beetson have been licensed to Molo Kids for two of their T-Shirt designs. As part of the Molo Art Project for the spring/summer collection 2013, seven hand-picked illustrators and graphic artists were chosen to create a print for a t-shirt and to incorporate their signature on the neck of the garment. The line up:
"The ‘molo art’ team and its prints range from Stina Persson’s funky zebra to Sarah Beetson’s wonderful rollerskating legs in sparkly colours. Stina Persson is one of Sweden’s most talented fashion illustrators, and Sarah Beetson, who is British born but based in Australia, can brag about having exhibited her illustrations all over the world and has made store decorations for one of Stella McCartney’s boutiques. The team also includes the Danish graffiti artist who goes by the name of ‘Toys,’ and who is a part of the first wave of graffiti artists in Denmark. ‘Toys’ has interpreted molo’s iconic star. The ‘molo art’ project isn’t just for famous names, though, since molo wants to empower young talent; the artist couple Rack&Nais is a good example of this because their partnership with molo started already back when they both went to Denmark’s Design School."
