The change of seasons is always a pretty groovy time. The weather warms up, people pop out of the woodwork and usually everyone centers themselves with both literal and spiritual spring-cleaning.
Our 13 Bricks family is no different. Celebrating the spring equinox we’ve done some cleansing and rearranging of our own in anticipation for our Spring/Summer line which we hope to debut around the time of the inaugural Bull Street Art Show- May 8th-10th.
We’ve steadily been setting up our space, selecting artist contest winners, printing and reprinting some of our most popular designs to share with you Savannah. We’re thrilled to announce the winners of our first and second competition are Terrica Peyton and Jake Schlosser-respectively-whose designs will be screen printed and released alongside our Spring/Summer line.
Coupled with Schlosser’s and Peyton’s new designs we’re proud to share with the community our Featured Artist of the Month- Cleonique Hilsaca. Born in Tegucigalpa the Honduran native has been gracing the Creative Coast with ingenuity in her illustrations and designs. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for Hilsaca’s homegrown prints as we release more of them in conjunction with our spring/summer line. Check out her profile and samples of her work here.
By popular demand we’ve reprinted both our “Fighting Panda” and “Loose Lips” designs on sustainable material. Both our “Fighting Panda” and the new “Animal Head” design-the latter by creative director Alfredo Martinez- are now printed on a 70% organic bamboo and 30% organic cotton tee. Likewise, our “Loose Lips” design- reproduced by popular demand- is now featured on a 100% organic cotton tee.
Naturally, you should expect to see the 13 Bricks team out and about throughout the season as we’ll be aggressively active in the arts community-as is the norm-attending assorted shows and cooperating with new partners to expand our reach and further the cultural revolution.
Stop by the Savannah Bazaar this Saturday-April 19th-to meet the 13 Bricks crew and pick up some of our recent reprints and new releases!
So Savannah, step out this spring and support local sustainability, creativity and community with 13 Bricks.
