Stadium Art Movement Commemorates the Birthplace of Grid Iron Football

Nestled at the foot of Mont-Royal, Molson Stadium is one of the more historically significant stadiums in the world.


12th June, 2012 (Montreal) Here is a mural of Montreal we have been doing for Montréalité. Still a work in progress,  it will eventually include the famous Olympic Stadium but now that the famous Molson Stadium has been inked into the skyline, the mural can now be considered an official output from the Stadium Art Movement.

Molson Stadium happens to be one of the most historically significant stadiums in all of North America. Site of the match which pitted Harvard visitors against McGill in a game of Rugby that combined the "Boston Rules" (an anachronistic code made up of remnants of Irish Football and other elements) this stadium saw some some other made-up rules added to what we have come to identify as Grid Iron Football today.
Make no mistake, American Football and Canadian Football each have their roots in this famous game between Harvard and McGill, whereby two teams sat down and ironed-out the new laws of play. At the time, there were so many versions of the game that a code was needed. After all, how can you win a league if each match you play on the way to becoming Champion has different rules and regulations than the last one?

White Hart Lane Tottenham Hotspur circa 1950

In case you had no idea where this is, our editor has ensured you do now.

7th April, 2012 (Montreal) Here is the sketch for our next Tottenham T-shirt. Lovers of Archibald Leitch and vintage stadium design will recognize The Shelf and other iconic attributes to this lovely ground. So lovely, it's in my top grounds of all time [see here]

Mural at Microbrasserie Le castor in Rigaud Quebec

3rd April, 2012 (Montreal) Here is a quick vid time lapse done of a mural I helped with in Rigaud, Quebec that celebrates my love of vintage houses and institutions. I was asked by the owners to collaborate with artist Adele Reeves, and responded that I could at least help with the buildings. Rigaud is home to some elaborate examples of classic Quebec architecture so it proved to be irresistible to make them the stars of the show.

PHILLY-STYLE STADIUM ART


11th January, Twenty-Twelve (Montreal) Last post we showed you our official Philadelphia  shot of Franklin Field.  Here is the latest rendition of Franklin Field referred to as "Philly-style" Stadium Art. We have essentially taken Franklin Field and turned it on it's axis and populated Philadelphia with rows of Beaux-Arts apartments, changed the train station around and made the river a little more fish-able.
