Introducing Our New Mascot…

Everyone, we’d like you to meet Mitch*. Mitch, this is everyone!


Mitch enjoys long walks in the forest, digging through trash cans for treats, sudoku, and smooth jazz concerts in the park.

He has generously agreed to lend his furry, handsome face to a run of kid’s shirts, available in store and through our online shop.


Mitch would like me to mention that he was designed by Andrew Brandou, and his colors and lettering are by Jordan Crane!

*Thanks to David S. for his excellent naming skills! Mitch is pleased.

Luke Pelletier Art Show & Book Release


Luke Pelletier is a recent Los Angeles transplant from North Carolina. Living in a tourist town for much of his life, he has been heavily influenced by sharply dressed alligators, assorted loud mouthed birds, and the occasional skeleton bartender. For Luke, tourist culture is less about neon colored t-shirts with snappy sayings and more about jaguars and flamingos wearing sunglasses and eating watermelon.

Join us Friday September 4th as we welcome Luke to town. In return for your hospitality, you will be rewarded with the release of Luke’s amazing book, LIZARD TAIL, as well as an eye melting exhibit of drawings and paintings. We’ll also have a limited edition (1:25) hand pulled silk screen print as well as a few of Luke’s new Surprise Skateboards decks. Or just come down for the Blue Ribbon and Luke’s hair care secrets. For those of you that just can not make the opening – celebrate with our LIZARD TAIL pre-sale which starts NOW

The limited edition print we’ll have…
