Spring Break Travel Suggestions...

Brand new Challis & Roos artwork. Modern designs with a decidedly retro/vintage feel. Make the most of your spring break -- choose one of these colorful hoodies and T's for each day of the week! See you on the beach...

Monday, chill on the beach at Malibu

Tuesday, Ipanema awaits

Wednesday's a great day for Daytona
On Thursday, wake up in Waikiki
It's Friday! Set sail for Acapulco
On Saturday, relax at Wreck Beach. (It's clothing-optional, so you might just want to save the tank top for your uber ride home...)
And... saving the best for last, spring break comes to a close at Bondi

Peaceful Companions






Recently rediscovered these mysterious drawings while looking through a batch of our sketchbooks from long ago. Although neither of us can quite recall the exact inspiration for this series, we remember its name -- the Peaceful Companions Collection. We've come across well over thirty of these similarly-themed sketches. Each piece of artwork consists of one very relaxed mammal, and one fashionably-dressed human companion. Some additional pieces of the puzzle; all of the animals have halos, and most the people seem to be wearing socks...

A Tree For Midnight Dreamers

On a hillside, near a village, there grows a tree. A shimmering witness to all that transpires, and judge to none. Its grace, shade, and oxygen are freely given. Its branches welcome nest builders from every land.
