Shadow Woods presents the 2018 exclusive merchandise collection, featuring the artwork of Dylan Garrett Smith and Brian Sheehan/Legerdemain. This year’s offerings feature Smith’s work on the 5-color design silk screened art poster, two t-shirts (one 5-color and one single color) and two hoodies. Sheehan’s 3-color design will be silk screened on a band t-shirt (with the lineup listed on the back), canvas back patches, a band poster and a die cut sticker. As in past years, there will also be an embroidered patch to commemorate the 4th edition of the fest based on the original logo design created in 2015 by Art Noir Design Studio.
Artists’ statements about the work:
“Exitio Noctua” – Destroying Owl
“Last year’s image had a purposeful stillness, as many of us believed it was going to be the last, but with Shadow Woods happening for a fourth year, I had to create something that expresses the ferocious excitement we all feel about our favorite weekend of the year!”
~ Dylan Garrett Smith
“The Diadem” ~ The oracle forging their own crown.
“I’ve never been keen on explaining a piece or what it is striving to convey. Aside from the title, I prefer the spectator discern their own interpretation. In short, “The Diadem” is the personification of the “do it yourself” ethos. The augur, an androgynous wraith, has been a reoccurring character throughout the years within Shadow Woods. Each year year it constructs a grandeur effigy out of itself to spoil those devout.”
~ Brian Sheehan/Legerdemain
