OluKai is a Hawaiian-inspired footwear company that is constantly innovating around the type of comfy and cozy shoe they bring their people. They make shoes that I actually love to wear, which is saying something for a surf bum whose in and out of sand a lot. It isn't my first time working with OluKai, but this was a very different kind of collaboration with them.
Established in 1997, the Moloka'i-2-O'ahu Paddleboard World Championship is the world's most challenging paddle race. The 32-mile race that begins on the northwest shore of the island of Moloka'i and ends in Maunalua Bay on O'ahu, is known as the fastest downwind route in the world. I was honored to create the art to embody this year's competition.
This Hawaiian-inspired footwear company makes some rad shoes and slippahs that feel like you're walking in wet sand all day long. I had the pleasure of designing some artwork for their new spring collection of sandals, inspired by a Hawaiian favorite: good ol' fashioned shave ice. The goal was to capture the fun, colorful, and playful feeling of ordering a shave ice in Hawaii.
It's no secret around here that I love to surf and am inspired by the surf culture. So when Birdwell Beach Britches reached out to get some illustrations done for their size chart, I jumped at the chance. I got to design these guys in different sizes to help prospective customers looking for trunks visualize what size shorts they should purchase.
I created this print for Acme Furniture and Pig & Rooster's collab. in Japan featuring interior design that compared Honolulu lifestyle to the Tokyo aesthetic.
Greenroom Festival is a one-of-a-kind festival that takes place in Hawaii and Japan each year. For starters, it's a festival that is put on by a gallery, and not just any gallery - one that exclusively supports surf art. So I was pumped to be asked to create the promotional artwork for the 2015 Greenroom Festival Hawaii
