NEW DRAGON LODGE T-SHIRTS AND LTD. EDITION SWEATSHIRTS

We’ve been meaning to release some new T-Shirt designs for a while now, with only a few of our last series – the very popular Dragon Lodge vs. The Yard designed by Looking Sideways art director Owen Tozer – left (see the merch. page and below) we had the opportunity to work with the super talented illustrator Phil Morgan, whose design has just arrived form the printers:

Phil first came to our attention through his graphic work for the likes of Crayon Skateboards, City Surf shop and the CSC (Cardiff Skateboard Club)  – he’s work is increasingly in demand, with recent work including exhibiting with the Looking Sideways crew at their Boardmasters event in August (see his LS profile here) as well as successful print shows in London, while his work is increasingly popular in the US with designs for the likes of the super cool Wolves Kill Sheep clothing label. We’re basically stoked Phil was into this project and think you’ll agree the final design and Ts/Sweatshirts look great!

Check out the original design below – and if you’d like to get one of these beauties yourself then info and prices are below.

T-Shirts – £20 each including P&P UK*

Sweatshirts £30 each & £2.50 P&P UK*

ENDEAVOR SNOWBOARDS ARTIST MEGGS EMBLAZONS EXTERIOR OF VANCOUVER OFFICE WITH DYNAMIC ART

We love Endeavor here at the lodge, the boards are obviously great or we wouldn’t ride them, and their design ethos really sets them apart from the majority of brands in the snowboard market. They recently moved into a cool new office / design lab / studio space in Vancouver and of course immediately set about collaborating with their featured artists to work on it – and documented the process in the film below – and we’ve still got a few spaces left on the Endeavor boardtest week in December where you can check out Meggs Live series art work and ride all the 2012 boards for free

Street, graffiti and fine artist Meggs, of Melbourne Australia, has left his mark on Endeavor Snowboard’s Vancouver design office with a massive outdoor mural.

The artist, who developed the artwork for Endeavor’s Live Series snowboard range, took to the exterior of Endeavor’s new home on Railway Street in the heart of Vancouver for a week in September. Armed with an arsenal of spray cans, stencils, rollers and brushes, he has left a dynamic work of art depicting a “Cold Front” superhero theme on a distinctly Vancouver backdrop.

The first in a series of content films to be released by Endeavor this fall was filmed and directed by Randy Ross and reveals Meggs’ motivations for his creation’s theme and the techniques used to produce the massive work of art. “Creating art in the public domain helps people relate and become more a part of their environment,” says Meggs. “A public art experience is an interactive experience.”

“We are an artist driven company and it has always been a dream of mine to have a work space which is creative and interactive” says Max Jenke, managing director of Endeavor Snowboards. “Having the opportunity to have Meggs do some installations was something we couldn’t pass up.”

Megg’s work can also be seen on the 2012 Live Series from Endeavor Snowboards. “The artwork for those boards are from a series of works I painted for my ‘King For A Day’ exhibition. The imagery features a duality of kings and demons, royalty and morality, which explores society’s obsessions with power, wealth and fame,” says Meggs.

“We are dedicated to bringing fine art to the best quality snowboards. The 2012 line-up of boards feature the most complete collection of graphics we have ever put together and Meggs has certainly done the Live Series justice with his graphic,” says Jenke.
