Mandala Madness at LSC

Mandalas are a shop favorite at LSC. The word “mandala” is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean “circle,” a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself–a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.

Describing both material and non-material realities, the mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles we call earth, sun, and moon, as well as conceptual circles of friends, family, and community.

LSC plays music also…

Greg and Andy play some music in their off time. (In different bands.) Greg plays in Fever Nest, and Andy plays in Asurya. If you’re in the Columbus area, swing by and check out the noise…

Week in Review: Can you tell who did what?

Whew, it’s been a busy winter season here at Long Street! We’re quickly approaching our 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY (March 12th) and will hopefully be printing up a fresh batch of shirt designs for the occasion. Some big announcements coming in June, and one apprentice to hopefully be starting full-time as well. So stay tuned, lots going on at LSC.

In the meantime, check out the most current batch of new designs from Andy & Phil. Can you tell who created which piece?
