Purple hat with Mike Bennett's original Snail embroidery.
We are partnering with one of our favorite local artists, Mike Bennett to bring some of his classic pieces to life on a Findlay Hat!
Mike Bennett moved from Central Pennsylvania to Portland, Oregon in the winter of 2016. He studied Art Education, Computer Design, Illustration, and Animation at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania and proceeded to chase his dream of illustration and character design immediately after his graduation in 2012.
Passionate about the outdoors and lacking proximity to a community with an appreciation for art, Mike's move to Portland was an incredibly easy choice. With encouragement from friends, family, and followers; Mike pursues his dream of being a full-time artist by tackling various illustrative "challenges" and constant creation in his free time. Working alongside children allows Mike to keep in touch with his ever-present inner child, keeping his dreams of being an illustrator alive.
Grateful for an amazing support group and a motivation that rarely slows down; Mike hopes to attain his goals of working in a creative field full-time as soon as he can. Until then, he's happy to draw every day and bring smiles to as many faces as he can.
We have been fans of Mikes's work for a while, and see his pieces around the city as well as literally across the street from my house one of our neighbors has one of his signs in their yard. We are excited to work with Mike on this project.
If you are in the Portland area, be sure to come by our popup with him at our store on June 26th.
