Collaborators for the launch of the brand, in Spring 2021
Micky Nagai -- Surf Shaper
Mickey is a Local & humble artist.
We recognize his boards from far away, cause they are all so unique.
They are all custom made here in Tofino, from shaping to glossing.
A unique talent we want to promote.
We have one of his art on a t-shirt to sell in the store in Tofino.
Matt Dyer -- Visual Art & Board Shaper
Led by curiosity, Matt is a community minded artist-adrift with a peculiar eye for his surroundings. He has studied, created and chased art from an early age.
Flanked by both academic and lowbrow ideals, he was raised amongst paintings, books, politics, film and a healthy dose of daytime television.
It is this mix of worlds—contrasting ideas and forms, colours and shadows—that inspires him to create today. Mostly working on painting and graphic design, he happily lives and creates in the colourful space where The Twilight Zone and Gilligan's Island get to intertwine with the Painters, illustrators, thinkers and rigmarole of the past and present.
Deanna Passmore -- Artist & Screen printing artisan
Deanna is a self taught artist and screen printer from the traditional Snuneymuxw territory, currently living on traditional Tla-o-qui-aht land. Heavily inspired by bootleg Grateful Dead merchandise as well as protest art and posters from across the years, she chops and screws different ideas and concepts together to make one cohesive(ish) piece of wearable art. When not screen-printing she is either working at the Tofino Brewing Company or walking her dog, Asparagus."
Ivy Amy Tah-ya Cargill-Martin --Artist
Ivy is born and raise in Tla-o-qui-aht territory also known as part of Vancouver Island. With two very artistic parents, Ivy found inspiration in everything and from every direction. Currently living in an off the grid on a float house, art is her main focus and first love. Everything from drawing, painting, embroidery, carving, graphic recording, stick-and poke tattoos and much more.
Clover June -- Photographer & Graphic Design
I was born and raised on the west coast of Canada and am very lucky to call "Vancouver Island my home. I grew up in a creative environment which allowed my curiosity to be nurtured. I was taught to value a slower type of living, noticing the value and care that lives in the in between and being patient with life’s process. Within this, there is so much beauty when we pause instead of rush. I love playing with photography as a medium as it captures so much in moments that we may otherwise miss."
Benjamin Knight -- Sign Painting artist
