I've been busy working on new t-shirt designs. Southern California is so beautiful and one of my favorite places to be; so it's no surprise LA and Santa Barbara were inspirations for these designs.
For the last couple of years, after moving into our new home, I've been trying to decided on the right wall art to put up in the dining room.
I must have visited Home Goods at least a dozen times with the hope I would find the "perfect" art, but sadly (or maybe not so sad) it never happened. Finally it hit me last week how much I love old, vintage looking art, and the nostalgia of our special little beach town of Ventura, CA.
Since I couldn't find what I wanted shopping for it, I decided to make my own canvas wall art and here it is!
I snapped a few photos and pulled together the ones that I feel bring out the most unique in interesting aspects Ventura has to offer. Great surfing, amazing views, beautiful sunsets, majestic palm trees, incredible food, and always plenty of laid back vibes. And we can't leave out the iconic Pacific Coast Highway, one of the most scenic freeways in the US. I love the song, Ventura Highway, written back in 1975 by the band America. Click here to listen.
This was a really fun project. Contact us if you're interested in custom vintage beach art. We'd love to make something special just for you.
We're all going through this pandemic together and have been holding back from living life to the fullest extent possible for health and safety reasons. You might even say it feels like we're living life with a "glass half full" for the moment.
All we have is right here and right now, so we may as well be optimistic about the future and hold on to the hope that we'll be gathering together and hugging our loved ones again soon.
This new collection is called Laugh and Live with a Glass Half Full - dedicated to living life optimistically by seeing the glass as half full (not half empty). In the meantime, let's laugh, love and live our way through this!

How can we keep our products selling during and after COVID-19?
That’s the $64 million question retailers and brands are brainstorming to figure out as quickly as possible. This was THE hot topic during the recent Licensing Expo Las Vegas 2020 (virtual) show in June and continues to be discussed among the best minds in the licensing world. Licensing Global Magazine - How Retailers Can License Their Way to Growth (June 22, 2020).
Consumers are choosing established brands and those they are more familiar with over less-known, experimental brands. There is a lot of disruption and uncertainty in the world right now and people are looking for safety, good deals, and ways to find peace and joy in the midst of it all.
As we’ve seen time and time again on the news lately, people are flocking to the beaches. It’s the one place they can feel peace and freedom, and make lasting memories.
CP Coastal’s mission, through its coastal themed designs, is to connect people to the joy and energy they get from the beach. Designs are available to manufacturers (via licensing) for placement on a wide variety of products including paper, textiles, home décor, kitchenware, bedding, and lifestyle accessories.
We’d like to help your brand grow and thrive by giving consumers what they want – to feel a bit more at ease with laid-back beach vibes.
