Blasts of color, a splash of Traditional American tattoo-inspired style, and Pacific Northwest imagery come together in Seattle-local Stevie Shao’s illustrations.
Growing up in a working-class industrial neighborhood along the coast of Seattle, the importance of Stevie’s local community was never lost on her. As a second generation Chinese-American, she knew hard work was invaluable and that we’re all culturally interconnected.
From crab claws to spiders to the more Traditional American tattoo motifs, Stevie draws inspiration from the world that defined her upbringing: The sea and the life that surrounds it in all its forms. So grab a Camp Cup or Wide Mouth Bottle and take a deep breath of that briney ocean air.
