WHY? BECAUSE MARQUETTE
Only Marquette’s great outdoors had space for my big emotions and questions while navigating childhood trauma and undiagnosed autism. If you’ve been to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, you’ve experienced that pull. With countless opportunities to lose yourself in a forest, dance with waterfalls, and watch the sun disappear into the lake – the UP truly lets nature do the talking.
The Because Marquette series started as a way to heal my inner child, and grew into a way for us all to celebrate the child within us. To stay curious, keep creating, and to always be kind! I’m alive and who I am today, because of Marquette. Now these designs help fund my project The Human Hangover, where I share the guidance given by Michigan’s woods, waters, and wildlife over the years. Thanks for supporting local and helping us bring mental health down to earth.

THANK YOU TRAILS
TOAST TO TRAILS
We’re focused on hydrating our trails through global reforestation. Trees filter our water, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, provide support and nutrients to our trails and supply habitat to countless forms of life. The least we can do is raise a glass to trees and the trails they keep watch over. A portion of our profit goes directly to planting trees where trees are needed most. Thank you for helping us plant over 200 trees so far!
As reforestation is an ever-changing global need, and since we are all locals on this planet, we focus on planting trees where they’re needed most. Big thanks to all who toasted to trails with us last year… and thank you trees!
LOVING OUR WATERS
*Special thanks to Liam for the inspiration behind this design. The Lake Slayperior design is for celebrating the greatness inside us and overcoming any challenge on our path. A portion of the profits for our Slayperior line go to the Superior Watershed Partnership.
BIG POND PROTECTORS
We are dedicated to protecting the Great Lakes by preventing the rocket launch project that proposes construction of a heavy industrial commercial rocket launch site along the beautiful shores of Lake Superior, near Thoneys Point. Help us protect a native brook trout spawning area, the habitat of the Eagles Nest Coastal Community Forest and countless thriving wildlife and nature trails in the surrounding area.
All profits from the sale of the Thoneys Point prints go to spreading the word about the proposed commercial rocket launch site along the shores of Lake Superior. For more information please visit our friends at: Citizens For A Safe And Clean Lake Superior
