I have deep roots in cycling. I met Brad (Owner of Studio Como) thru cycling and bikes. It's not surprising that aspects of the design world and bicycles intersect. When I saw the e15 blocks and the 20th Anniversary celebration Bigfoot table were going to be released with a Geoff McFetridge drawing wood-burned onto them, it was proof of these crossovers. I haven't had the oppurtunity to pedal a bike with Geoff yet, but the list of mutual friends we share is long. He designed the logo of my good friend's bike shop, Golden Saddle Cyclery in Los Angeles; has done illustrations for two beautiful bicycle frames by Stinner Frameworks; illustrated numerous Patagonia designs and continues to collaborate with like-minded artists who inspire me.
To see more of the Mudfoot, Stinner, Geoff McFetridge team bike head over to The Radavist.
Artist and illustrator Geoff McFetridge creates the limited edition Bigfoot Dice celebrating the twentieth year of e15 and its first product, the iconic table Bigfoot designed by the company’s co-founder and architect Philipp Mainzer. Etched onto the dice, the artist playfully invents scenes illustrating the table’s patron, the creature Bigfoot who is believed to inhabit forests mainly in the Northwest region of America. The shape and dimen- sion of the Bigfoot Dice is made from the signature solid oak heartwood legs of the celebrated table.
Drawn to images, abstraction and surrealism Geoff McFetridge’s work is simple and rooted in drawing. The LA based artist works across a great variety of media including graphic design, illustra- tion and animation with clients such as Spike Jonze, The Walker Art Center, The New York Times, Sophia Coppola and Nike among others. His works are part of several museum exhibitions inclu- ding the Museum of Modern Art in Los Angeles and V1 Gallery
in Copenhagen where he recently presented a solo exhibition showing 13 new paintings on canvas.
