Anika Orrock is an illustrator and graphic designer from Santa Cruz, Ca. She draws inspiration for her whimsical illustrations from things as disparate as watching little birds scurry away from waves on the beach to stumbling across a bin of typewriter keys at the flea market. The pictures she creates are as varied as her inspirations, and she likes to think that if she’s tickled by an idea, this delight will be evident in the final product.
Vanessa Azzarello is the creator of tie dye hair ties appropriately called The Tye. By day a nursing student, and by night a compulsive crafter, Vanessa sees these activities as deeply connected in their ability to help people and bring them health and happiness.
The act of creating is a joyful one for Vanessa: she dances and sings in a house drenched in the colors of drying ties, making color tactile and alive. She is invigorated by the process of creating and sends these little pieces of tie dyed art into the world to be worn by you.
