Reimagined Classics By Bigfoot
We are Beyond Honored to call Bigfoot a Friend and to have his Art be such an Integral part of Street Plant. This isn't about a "collaboration" with an Artist, or a "season" of product, this is about an ongoing Relationship with an Artist and a Friend that we Love and Respect and whose Art we feel Captures the Essence of who we are.
In that Spirit, we asked Bigfoot to Reimagine my "Classic" Graphics. From the Powell Peralta Elephant, to the World Industries Barnyard to the Powell Skateboards and Black Label Lightning Bolt, these Graphics and Shapes defined my Career, and continue to speak to a New Generation of Skateboarders.
At first, Bigfoot was hesitant to approach this Art. As a kid growing up in New Jersey in the 80's, He was so Greatly Influenced and Inspired by the Original Artists, and he had ridden several of the Boards that inform this Line. But this is precisely why I Knew He was The Right Artist for these Graphics. Once He put Himself into the Work, it unfolded with Heart and Soul. And the Love and Care that He put into the Art on these Boards makes them some of the most Beautiful and most Meaningful Boards I've ever put my name on. More than just Art redrawn, these Graphics have Deep Emotional Content, and Spirit Breathed into them, and so for me, they Resonate in the same way the original Art did.
The word - Love - being written on all of our Boards is simply about Personalizing Every Board, Touching Every Board that passes through Garageland, and Imparting some Good Energy into them. It's an idea, a Good Thought - To send the Boards out with Love and Kindness. The Recognition that the Person who receives the Board IS a Person, not a faceless consumer, but Someone Connected to us through this small interaction, and Someone that we Greatly Value.

Being a small, Family owned business it is very difficult for us to work around or absorb shipping costs. We are aware that many online retailers and even online Skate retailers offer "Free" or Flat Rate Shipping. Some of the bigger retailers can do this because they sell a larger range of products, and at a much greater volume. As an Independent business that focuses primarily on Skateboard sales, this just isn't a reality for us. In Garageland, it's about Love, and Good Energy put into every interaction, sale, and shipment, and a True Appreciation for the People that Support our company.
We do offer Free Shipping in the USA on Orders of $150.00 or more. Orders are typically Shipped on Monday and Friday.If You ever need anything sooner, or You live somewhere in the world where You would prefer us to use a different shipping method (such as Fed Ex or other) simply Click Here to email Mike.
