Well, it’s a pinch me kind of day. Rip Curl and I teemed up for the THIRD year in a row, and the collection just officially launched. Ripcurl X Goldfish Kiss 2018. Check it out.
We did a line of hats, bags, tanks, and even threw in a pullover and a rad one piece – all featuring artwork by moi. You know that painting of Diamond head I did a year or so ago? Well, I painted it for this (The tote turned out pretty sweet.) And yes, it was hard to keep my lips sealed about it all this time. But it’s pretty surreal to see it in wearable, or tote-able, form now.
My Heart On a Wave piece is on a tank and a super soft sweatshirt, and well, my messy writing, and love for hibiscus came in handy. There’s aloha everywhere. Literally. It’s written all over the place.
It’s bright, fun, and imbued by the sun. I’m pretty sure there’s something for everyone. My mom bought the sweatshirt last week.
Thank you Rip Curl. Beers, or tropical drinks of choice are on me today. I absolutely love working with you, am beyond and flattered, and think we make a pretty great team.
Last year’s collection sold out pretty fast, so go check it out and grab a piece of it while you can. Or check out your local surf shop, it might have some of it as well.
Cheers to art. Cheers to surf. Cheers to Rip Curl. And ok…cheers to a mom who paints things she dreams of while sitting in her pj’s at her messy desk at 12:30am and just keeps on keepin’ on, believing good things will happen…and somehow has partnered up with one of her favorite surf companies three years in a row because of it.
Enough shameless self promotion. I’m excited about this. Hope you are too.
Now go shop.
Rip Curl X Goldfish Kiss – available at ripcurl.com (while it lasts!) and at your local surf shop (If they don’t carry it, tell them to get their act in gear.)
