Earth Day Artwork: Rebecca Kudela

 

A brilliant graphic designer who makes magic happen on our computer screens, scans the beaches on her daily workouts and weekend beach combing sessions in an effort to clean up. Her artwork submission entitled ‘COLLECTED’ recently took 1st prize at our company Earth Day artwork.

Here’s a little message from the artist’s submission: “Over the past few weeks I’ve been going to the beach every day after work – beachcombing and collecting. My initial thought for this project was to make a collage out of all-natural elements found at the beach, but, once I started collecting I quickly realized I was finding more plastic than anything else. These days our So Cal beaches are covered with so much plastic and trash it makes me sick – and this art piece is the result. It’s impossible to find a shell anymore without finding 20 pieces of trash to go along with it. How did we let it come to this? Let this be a reminder to help keep our beaches clean and next time you go out for a surf, when you leave bring some of that trash with you.”

Catalog Countdown: Type It Out

We’re back!…showing you more behind the scenes of our Summer catalog as we countdown until it officially drops on April 23rd (how excited are you!?). Last time we showed you the press check and a quick recap on the process. Now we’re diving even deeper, and giving you some cultural insight and showing you how BALI lives throughout our catalog pages.

Roxy Graphic Designer Devin Dailey went with the Roxy team riders on the journey of a lifetime and took plenty of pictures along the way. He found inspiration in the typography used on Bali’s hand painted signs and boats as well as all the bright colors and textures.

When it came time to start designing the catalog, Devin Dailey & Becca Kudela pulled out those inspirational photos creating some amazing hand painted type to really capture that Balinese vibe…stay tuned…we’ll be continuing our catalog countdown next week!

Artist Interview: Trouble Andrew

Skater, Olympic pro snowboarder, husband to Santigold, lead singer of Trouble Andrew, and 100% an artist, Trevor Andrews sat down with us at the Roxy Chicken Jam before his memorable performance. We got to ask him a couple of questions and learned that this soft-spoken yet assertive guy considers action-sports his community, wants to take up surfing and is a bit of a visionary when it comes to digital.

ROXY: We know you’re a skater, and an Olympic snowboarder. Is this why you always come back and perform at action-sports related events? Is that why you chose to perform at the Roxy Chicken Jam?

TA: Well, I don’t really feel like I am coming back, this is my community, you know what I mean? I grew up around snowboard culture and skate culture and obviously competed in it and took part in it in a big way. With the music it’s just a natural thing to stay in that community and that culture cause I live in it, you know what I mean? So the music is just kind of an extension of the culture and I feel like snowboard, skate, surf culture in general, like breathes so much art, you know?

ROXY: We read something that you’re also a bit of a graphic designer. Is there a career for you?
TA: Yeah for sure. I mean I have been doing graphic design for years now. I started really being involved with designing outerwear and stuff for Analog years ago and then just doing my own snowboard graphics and yeah. Any way that I can stay creative is just what I am about so, if I am not like making flyers for shows or writing music or making beats, or like designing a snowboard graphic or clothes or whatever. I just like to stay creative.

ToRoxy Music Club: Surfer Blood’s New “Floating Vibes” Video

Florida’s Surfer Blood released one of our favorite albums of the year– the fun, tropical Astro Coast. As the weather turns cold we know it’s one the few albums that will always remind us of hot weather. Now they’re back with a hilarious new video for their single “Floating Vibes” in which band members act like weathermen, lawyers, and infomercial hosts as they surf across various tv channels. The song also features one of our favorite lines: “If you’re moving out to the West, then you better learn how to surf!”

And don’t forget to check their myspace for the full list of tourdates — they’re criss-crossing the country throughout the fall!
