The Famous Mystery Knox Tree Print is now available!

The Famous Mystery Knox Tree. Just like Great Wall of China, The Crop Circles, The Pyramids of Egypt and Andre the Giant, this mighty carving out of a grand sequoia will always be awed by humans. No one knows how or when it happened, but it is a national treasure as far as the good folks of Knoxville are concerned. Some say that this tree carving has magical powers and that it speaks to a few selected lucky people. The coach of the Lumberjacks claims to be one of these enlightened persons. They do have 7 championships under their belts. So maybe something is true of it. Whatever be the case may be, people from all over the world come and visit this unique site in hopes that they'll will communicate with this tree and learn the secrets from beyond the sun. Some even say it resembles a prigus paddle... 

A little bit of history on the Knoxville Lumberjacks Prigus Sport Club-
The Lumberjacks were established in the second wave of the Prigus Eastern growth period. With all the free open land, and rivers running through Knoxville, the league thought it would be a good fit for a team. The Lumberjacks' name came from the history of the town's industry around 1932. The lumber industry back then was a major source of employment for the town and is still is a bustling business in Knoxville today. Trees were cut down up north and the rivers were used to transport the lumber to the factories. It was like a lumber highway at the peak of the season. There would be festivals scheduled in neighboring towns around the rivers edge to watch the lumber travel south. The meat of the festivals would be centered around the strongmen contests and the annual log boom run in the rivers. The Lumberjacks play in the Pickel Island Tree Farm Stadium with the French Broad River surrounding it.

Mascot and Paddle Show at As Issued

Last weekend my show at As Issued opened.  It was a brief look at the gear (the Paddles) of Prigus Sport and the Mascots that represent the proud cities that host these terrific teams.   This show is the first public exhibition study of the sport.  I focused on first, the Mascots.  Each city throughout the United States was handpicked, I chose smaller cities that don’t represent the mass appeal of the state.  Also, some states and cities were chosen mainly because they’ve never had a professional team represent them, so that in it’s self was a reason.   The character mascots were researched and designed based on the history of the city where the team resides.  For example- The Akron Goodyears….. Home of the Goodyear tire or The Devils Lake Floods, the area’s lakes are famous for flash flooding when the weather in severe.  Every team’s Mascot has a back story and that makes fun and interesting.

The Paddles, were design based on two things- The colors of the uniforms and what the mascots is.  Some are easily recognizable and some are more obscure than others.  But that is what makes them all so different and fun.  It’s a collection, get them all.  

Below is the official shirt of Prigus Sport.  RVCA was enough to produce the shirt of the league. This is the first one that was released.  The next one will premiere at the "Prigus A Closer Look into the Sport" show at the RVCA gallery in San Francisco next year.
