Not going to spend any significant time talking about this year and all of it's complexities today.
You were there.
Who's not sick of thinking about it?
Time spent outdoors is virtually always nice, but when you feel like a ghost haunting your own house, the allure of a green getaway has probably gotten magnified a bit. Would be real nice to haunt a hammock somewhere peaceful for a little while...right? I'd like to nestle into a place where the only projectiles are black walnuts thudding into a crunchy blanket of fallen leaves. Where the only arguments are between some outrageous squirrels high up in the canopy where you don't have to get involved. Where the only rumors are whispered from tree to tree in an ancient, unknowable tongue. Where the only social network is the miles of mushroom mycelium running beneath forest floor, coordinating a lunch date on a rotting log tomorrow morning. THAT sounds pretty all right, wouldn't you say? But, not all of us are able to act on such an impulse right now. We have to be there in spirit for awhile.
Therein lies the heart of the series we are finally debuting, starting with an enviable ghost reclining in a mountain paradise. This series is a love letter to world way outside our virtual lives. You may not not get to wade into the wild at the moment but perhaps these designs can tide you over until you can. If you're one of the lucky ones who can take a little adventure, though, hope you'll include us in your bug-out bag and show off to all the woodland critters.

Digging these designs, they remind me of Mount/ Lake Shasta and taking highway 5 all the way north, with mountain ranges and volcanos everywhere.
Was there a special mountain/ trip in mind while working on this line?
