“To explore the unknown and the familiar, distant and near and to record in detail with the eyes of a child, any beauty, (of the flesh or otherwise) horror, irony, traces of utopia or Hell. Select your team with care, but when in doubt, take on some new crew and give them a chance. But avoid at all costs fluctuations of sincerity with your best people.” – Dan Eldon

The Dan Eldon Project is a small collection of clothing inspired by the life of creative activist, Dan Eldon. At the young age of 22, Dan had already toured more than 40 countries on a mission to raise awareness of the hardships of the world. Throughout his travels he kept many leather bound journals of photos, art using things found, and his incisive words until his was fatally beaten by an angry mob along with 3 of his colleagues. It is with these journals that the Dan Eldon Project collection has come to fruition. Along with EVER Creative Director, Jason Bleick, the collection is made up of premium tees printed with images and art from Dan Eldon’s work. The proceeds from each tee will benefit the Dan Eldon Foundation; formally known as Creative Visions, which supports Activists on a similar path as Dan.
