I have been fishing, surfing, drawing, and painting most of my life. My first serious fishing adventure started when I was 5, when I started fishing off of the Washington State coast with my Grandad for salmon. This t-shirt design honors him and all of the wonderful experiences that we have had together. The design is hand drawn and printed here in Santa Cruz, California. If you look closely, you can even see a few little breaking waves within the scales of the fish.
My t-shirt line is called “uroko”, meaning “fish scales” in Japanese. Uroko celebrates the people who find peace in the ocean waves, food and sport from the creatures that live within our planet’s fresh and salt waters, and camaraderie from the togetherness that we share in experiencing these wonderful gifts that we have a chance to interact with. Thank you for supporting my passion of making fun t-shirts.
