Victor Athletics + Being Around Artists

Chris and Abby Sutton are my wife's friends from college (and now my friends too). They are artists and risk-takers who started Noble Denim and later created Victor Athletics. They're a dynamic duo; the kind of people paying attention to their work and their lives. I always get new bursts of energy, focus, and perspective after being with them. 

I've filmed in factories across Middle America with them, modeled in campaigns, and shot skeet in West Tennessee with them. I look up to them as entrepreneurs + visionaries + people. 

If you're ever in Cincinnati, visit their store-front and buy some American made goods for your friends and family.

Vote our Planet

"Sincerely, Mr. Buffalo #2" • Part of a Creative Action Network / Patagonia campaign

Vote everyday in your home, in your relationships, your neighborhood-city-state and country. Think of the water your great grandchildren will drink. Vote/choose on behalf of them: not corporate-greed and economic-ease.

Meet your neighbors. Talk to strangers. Spend time with people outside of your economic/age bracket. Entertain an idea that differs from the little-itty-bitty part of the universe you've grown-up-in and experienced. Embrace complexity. Find principles to live by. Be humble. Listen. If you're privileged and not lobbying/advocating for the underdog; rethink everything.  

The Creative Action Network is community sourced activism-art. If you are an artist and/or an activist or someone who empowers artists/movements, you'll enjoy the site. 

They get artists to contribute work for causes that need to be amplified. Creative Action Network gives 40% of the sales to the artists, keeps some for overhead and producing the poster/t-shirt/etc, and then donates the majority to the cause. I'm a fan. You should be too.

Wolf Pack

I made this design in collaboration with Earthjustice and The Creative Action Network to help reimagine our collective view of wolves. Earth justice has been fighting for decades to defend grey wolves (along with many other animals, places, and people). 

You can buy the design as a print, t-shirt, or tank top

Find the Gold

This is a poster I made for the Creative Action Network (CAN) campaign: Transcend.  CAN calls upon a global community of artists and designers to use their collective talents for good. 

You can support the movements and artists by sharing campaigns (word-of-mouth/email/social media), buying art, and contributing your own artwork
