Hearts to Japan

 The natural disasters that occurred this month in Japan are extremely tragic and deeply saddening. With the escalating war, disaster, and destruction occurring world-wide, there is one huge light that shines through all of this: that is the unity which rises above all. Knowing that we are all human here on earth, and are in this together, we've got to support one another during hard times. Support can come in the strength of a friendship, vital food and medical sources, monetary aid, and most importantly through LOVE.

The positive energy and vibration that transmits from a loving notion can truly make an impact. Erick Arc Elliot has produced a track titled, "Hearts to Japan," in collaboration with TheLoveInUs that is available for free. Accompanying art work is designed by INFAMOUS JEANCLAUDE. Please take a listen, and while you do... 
donate your thoughts, prayers, and love to those in Japan.

Bigfoot's Global Adventures

So, for the past few weeks, Bigfoot has been jetting around the world and landing in spots such as Australia and Japan to participate in some art shows and mural painting. Along with pal, Jason Maloney, Bigfoot left his mark at places such as Monster Children gallery in Sydney, Avalon Art Fest in Sydney, MTV Australia Headquarters, and Barton Lynch Blast Off surf competition in New South Wales. WHEW! And, it ain't over yet!

Bigfoot x The North Face

Bigfoot's collaboration with The North Face finally dropped in Japan not long ago. The line features a hoodie, shell, tee, backpack, and duffel bag all adorned with unique Bigfoot designs. Everything looks absolutely dope...congrats!!!

A note from the foot himself:
"In this exclusive Bigfoot X The North Face collection the key elements are the classic silhouettes from The North Face,such as the Balaclava Hoodie and Venture shell jacket,combined with some of my most iconic symbols and illustrations,to produce a message of the power of nature.The concept behind the design of this collection is to produce articles to make the wearer feel like they have entered an enchanted forest sanctuary,where they can become a Bigfoot and hold the power of the green lightning.The connection between Bigfoot and The North Face is the exploration of nature.The Bigfoots are masters of the forest,and in order for humans to explore at least a small percent of the forest,the right clothing and gear is needed to endure the elements and bring people closer to nature.I see this collaboration as a great match up between me and The North Face.I am excited for the people to have pieces from this collection to cherish,that will last a long time,and to help them experience nature."
