Best Coast Clothing
The idea of Best Coast Clothing came from the saying “West Coast is the Best Coast.” I have a personal connection to the artist Emily Carr, who is known for her West Coast paintings and love of animals.
I combined her paintings with the silhouettes of West Coast animals. Emily Carr is important to me. Carr has the same degree of talent and spirit as the iconic Frida Kahlo and I want to see Emily Carr reach that same international iconic status. I purposly chose which paintings of hers I wanted to mix with the various animals.
In the end I think the shirt designs came out well and really represent what the west coast is to me and to others.
