Freedom Artists family member Stefan Kocev @stefankocev shot the imagery seen here on the "Connected" tee. This one was a challenging but fun image to screenprint. We think we nailed it. Check it out on our site or a retailer near you.

We're really digging the work that FA Family Member Hayden Burdge @hay_doe has been putting out lately. Here's a recent collab he did with photographer @austindaniels_ Stoked on this guys!
A couple spots sort of, kind of, pretty much fired for a fleeting moment today. Freedom Artists family member Dune Newhouse claims this is more mirage than anything, but it is pretty damn inviting.

Thanks again and Happy New Year! #freedomartists12407691_858422890942009_1863529571_n

The final image of Colin Weinberg's @colinericw take over is incredible. Be sure to swing by his show tonight at the Richmond Bar & Grill in El Segundo from 5-9pm. "Toketee Falls here was the standout of my trip to Southern Oregon. The crystal clear waters in the pool beneath the falls, massive trees above and the Devil's Postpile looking rocks are like nothing I've ever seen before."12362353_1518122515182128_171769153_n
More from Colin Weinberg @colinericw :
"Another unique Joshua Tree image. @corygehr and I headed out in search of the Super/bloodmoon that was rumored to appear that night, but I happened to find a more striking image of the yucca valley floor lit by the brightest moon I have ever been exploring around under."

This photo is one of our favorites by Colin Weinberg. Here's what @colinericw has to say about it: "There is no better place to experience the Milky Way than Joshua Tree. It actually feels like you can reach out and touch it. So, I climbed up on a 40 ft boulder in the pitch black to give people the feeling of looking up at it themselves."
More from Colin Weinberg @colinericw : "Taken no more than one mile from the Richmond Bar and Grill (Location of the show on Saturday) my good friend @rapidorojo (john Truax) and I went to the beach one evening in hopes of getting a break in the clouds for a colorful sunset...We ended up happening upon the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen in LA."
We are super stoked be having our first ever sample sale at our warehouse this Saturday, Dec. 12 from 10am-2pm. Get here early, there are some crazy deals to be had.

To celebrate Freedom Artists Family Member Colin Weinberg's @colinericw first solo show this Saturday in El Segundo, we're having him take over our account this week to give you a peak of what he will be showing. Check his profile for more images and all the info on the show. "Ahmed Terraces- We randomly stumbled upon this incredible landscape of terraces tucked into Mt Agung, the largest volcano in Bali. We were heading North up the East coast and found ourselves gazing over this valley of rice terraces without another westerner in sight." - @colinericw
Well, that was a lot of fun. We are still tripping on how many people showed up to @generaladmission.us last night to see the art on display from @stefankocev @loganrauhut @duneagi and Matt Wessen. The artwork will be up for a couple weeks, so be sure to swing by and check it all out and grab one of the few remaining tees or prints. Thanks to @fourbrotherswineco and @housebeer for making sure no one stayed thirsty.
We spent the afternoon screen printing some super limited edition prints for tomorrow night's event at General Admission @generaladmission.us . There are only 10 of each, so swing by to grab one or all and have a drink on @fourbrotherswineco and @housebeer .
FRIDAY NIGHT! We couldn’t be more stoked to be hosting a photography show with our friends at @generaladmission.us We will be showing works from 4 incredibly talented photographers ( @stefankocev @loganrauhut @duneagi & Matt Wessen), as well as celebrating the release of a line of exclusive @generaladmission.us x @freedomartists tees. The line features art from the show and will only be available in store at General Admission. Refreshments will be provided by the legends at @housebeer and @fourbrotherswineco

This image is from a super clear day at my local spot, the visibility was so good, you didn’t even need goggles." Photo by @trevorpikhart
Dune Newhouse @duneagi does a lot for us here at Freedom Artists. Besides doing most of our photography, he's also happy to help us pack boxes of gear in the warehouse when it's 100 degrees. He's also, as shown here, more than happy to pack some tubes when the water is warm and the waves are pumping. Our hero!
