Poler Surf Print

Spring 2015 Line

I so admire my surfing dearies who have an open-minded and adventurous approach to life.  Their optimism seems to have been reaffirmed by so many moments spent out on the sea waiting for the next mysterious dance partner to reveal itself.  It seems like a great way to be in life, awaiting the next wave, with confidence, respect and curiosity.  I wanted to create graphic icons of aquatic energy unfurling and offer them up as slides for these characters to play on.

Poler Moto Print

Spring 2016 Line

This pattern was inspired by a collage of marvelous memories and by my local motorcycling community.  The artwork features portraits of local lords and ladies namely Tori Drake and (sorta local) Drake McElroy.  It is also much inspired by the adventure master-planning by Thor Drake of See See Motorcycles.  See below video for evidence of his fine recreational leadership (in partnership with Sideburn Magazine.)

Poler Bear Paw Print

Fall 2016 Line

The Bear Paw print was inspired by my fascination with quilting and the traditional Bear Paw quilt block.  I love all of the ways that Poler uses this print in the Fall 2016 line.  This design is the official Fall 16 Season kit pattern for the Poler Cyclocross Team. They even used the print on their bikes (see below). It has been so fun to see the print in SERIOUS ACTION and covered in mud as depicted below from the Poler CX Instagram feed.

Poler Trees Print

Spring 2016 Line

When I was a youngster I used to spend my summers working at a Pack Station in the Sierras.  This pattern was inspired by the serene wonder of a high sierra meadow full of wildflowers.  Riding a horse down a trail that breaks out of the dark tall forest into a glowing sun-drenched meadow is one of my favorite memories.  My least favorite memory is from times that I was leading the trail ride in which case my face was the first one to break through all of the spiderwebs along the trail.
