Julio and I (and Pulgas the puppy) set off on a few different adventures back in February…Here is a recap in photos including Barra de Colotepec, Tide pools near Agua Blanca, Hot Springs and Chacahua.
Our Online Shop is finally up and running! Well, it has been up and ready for a while but I was nervous about taking the final step and announcing it. But nerves be darned! We are moving forward and are super excited about this new step. We can now offer Julio Soto’s gorgeous and whimsical prints for sale as impeccable Art Posters printed on-demand, our tanks (we are adding to the selection soon!) printed with fun designs from Puerto Escondido, and even mugs and tote bags of the highest quality. We hope you enjoy! Let us know what you think please, we are still learning and growing everyday, and all your opinions will only help us get better.
Thanks / Gracias!
Ariel and Julio
Dia de los Muertos
I adore the colors and traditions this time of year. Last year we cleaned and decorated the tombs of Julio’s grandparents with candles, flowers and a few of their favorite items (including a slingshot and a handful of limes for his grandfather, who famously would sit on his porch and shoot the limes at passersby who dared take the shortcut through his property!) and plan on doing the same this year. Our home is already dripping in flowers, and I would love to have the time this year to make an elaborate altar somewhere. Certainly there will be many more photos to come as the market fills with flowers and sugar skulls. Such a delight for the senses!!!
August and September have so far brought lots of surf lessons, a good amount of rain, some new board painting projects and a lot of time to start getting our online shop off the ground. We hope in the next couple of weeks we are ready to take orders on our Ts and Tanks with Julio’s art. One of the benefits of the online project is the fact that any print can be ordered on the shirt of your choice, something we just can’t do in the shop. So the sky is the limit! Tanks, T’s even Hoodies are available for those of you in colder climates. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we enjoy creating it. Here is a little collage of the past few weeks including lessons, beach cleanups, sample apparel, and fresh paint. Check it:
