    OluKai 'Discover Your Flavor' Campaign

    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.

    Forward Magazine Illustrations

    Ward Village puts out a quarterly lifestyle publication called the Forward Journal. For their most recent edition, I was interviewed about my life on island, my inspiration, and what I have in mind for the future. But they also asked me to create some illustrations for the cover and a few interior pages.

    The SplashBar Rebrand

    Built on land that was once the estate of Hawaii's last and most beloved princess, the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani is a garden oasis in the heart of Waikiki. When they wanted to rebrand their pool bar, they came to me to create a fresh look. One that was inspired by the Polynesian Tiki roots that have plenty of history in Waikiki.

    Birdwell Beach Britches Sizing Illustrations

    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.
