Leading casual clothing brand, Weird Fish, has introduced a new T-shirt to its Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) clothing range.

‘Cranespotting,’ designed by new artist Lewis Boughen, is the latest addition to the range and has launched in time for the new Trainspotting movie, T2, released in January 2017. The new T-shirt is on sale now for £20, with £5 from each T-shirt donated to the RSPB, the UK’s largest conservation charity.

At the end of the summer Weird Fish held a competition to search for a new artist to design its limited edition T-shirt for the RSPB. After whittling down the applications, Weird Fish selected three finalists; ‘Raiders of the Lost Lark’ by Tim Harries, ‘Cranespotting’ by Lewis Boughen and ‘Purple Crane’ by Steve Bright.

Tim Harries’ design was crowned the winner after social media fans cast their vote and Tim joined Weird Fish’s team of artists. ‘Raiders of the Lost Lark’ is on sale now for £20, with £5 from each sale being donated to the RSPB.

Weird Fish were impressed with Lewis’ and Steve’s designs, the runners-up, and took the decision to add ‘Cranespotting’ (available now) and ‘Purple Crane,’ (launches next year), to the limited edition range of T-shirts.

John Stockton, managing director at Weird Fish, said: “With the fantastic artwork that was submitted for this competition, we simply couldn’t ignore the high standard. Lewis Boughen, unlike the other finalists, was not already working as a cartoonist but his style and enthusiasm was hard to ignore and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team.”

Lewis Boughen from Epping in Essex, designer of the new ‘Cranespotting’ T-shirt, said: “It’s a dream come true to be added to the Weird Fish team of artists. The T-shirt is perfect for fans of the Trainspotting saga and the timing couldn’t be better as the new movie hits cinema screens in January.”

Weird Fish has been in partnership with the RSPB since January 2015, raising more than £40,000 with its limited edition T-shirts. From the beginning of the partnership, Weird Fish has created three specific bird inspired T-shirt designs, ‘Lord of the Wings,’ ‘Darth Wader’ and ‘Harrier Potter and the Deathly Sparrows.’

John Stockton added: “Weird Fish is proud to continue its work with the RSPB. We have an eco-garden at Weird Fish HQ which makes an enjoyable outdoor space for our staff. The RSPB kindly helped us out with our garden to make it more habitable for wildlife.”

Weird Fish clothing is available to buy nationally from Weird Fish retail stores and online. There are 13 branded stores and stockists include Debenhams, Cotswold Outdoor, Haskins and Blacks Leisure. For more information, visit www.weirdfish.co.uk.
