    I have had many PM's asking why I haven't been so active on here lately, but I've been super busy putting in work in the background, and doing a little bit of fishing to keep me sane.


    And with that, I'm glad to officially announce that I have moved on from SWC to launch my own brand. I have done a few shows these past three weeks and the response has been amazing.

    What to expect: All the apparel is directly inspired from my artwork on canvas. Similar to what I have designed for SWC in the past, but with more range to do whatever I can imagine.

    Right now we offer T-shirts, Hats, Vandals (Face Masks), an extensive selection of phone cases for iPhone 4,4s,5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4, Stickers, Prints, Original Paintings and we are constantly adding new products to the line.

    We have a blog set up on our site that features some great fishermen telling their fishing stories from all over the place, and will continue to add more anglers into the mix to keep things interesting.

    We will be putting out the same content that I have been doing for the past few years as far as fly fishing videos and photos, so stay tuned for more of that.

    Here's Ambassador Warren Chin (Brunnerrrr on Microskiff) holding a nice Flamingo redfish while wearing the "High Roller Trucker" and a special Limited Edition Bonefish Vandal that we did for the Herman Lucerne Memorial tournament.

    Glad to see a local member finally publishing his skills to the market. Nothing against SWC, but I already own all of their tees and the updates rarely keep coming. It's time to put some more new shirts towards my arsenal. Best of luck...

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone.


    It's nice soft, thin polyester, with a nice loose seemless fit. Shipping rate I believe is set to 10%, it should tell you upon checkout.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Best of luck...keep the ideas fresh and you'll do well.

    lmao

    Yeah, the mannequins have to do until we get out and some some fishing pics with it. Working on some photo campaigns now. We have a trip booked for a week down in the lower keys in two weeks with a bunch of guys from all over Florida that should produce a ton of content.

    Any plans for a long sleeve micro? Good luck, I believe your designs will be a success.

    I ordered the redrum hat, and noticed the sea of tails stuff. I believe I have the original painting, hanging on my wall. If so, that's pretty cool.

    You might be the one who has it. I remember it went to your area. Couldn't remember if it was you or Fish Freek, as both of you bought several pieces.

    Micro's are in the works, samples will be ready Monday, then we will go from there.

    You know, that's not really my thing. I have painted a few underwater scenes, but only because they were commissions and the clients specified they wanted it. But I still gave it my spin, and stay away from traditional realism style. My style has developed over the past year, and evolved a bit from the first pieces I did. The first scene I did was a permit piece tilted "Check Mate" for a client in Australia who wanted an Australian Permit (they don't look like the Permit from around these parts) and wanted a sandy bottom, as there's no sea grass flats in Australia.


    Here is the most recent scene style piece I did for a client per his request. He had me do two, this permit, and a bonefish.

    This was before I added the fly, or varnish.

    That pic looks great! You are a talented man! I should have had you do my rooster fish when we talked about it, now that your famous price has probably tripled!

    I bought one of your art works pieces today at the CCA dinner in Jacksonville. 1st one I have seen in person and it looked amazing. It was of a Redfish, going to look great in my home office.

    Thanks, guys. Glad you like the stuff. I'm going to have a booth at the St. Pete Boat Show in a few weeks, if anyone is in the area, you should stop by and say hello.
