Product Note

In an alternate dimension,  where color is sound and lines are tastes, Timothy Leary is CEO of Nickelodeon. He has hired Steve Harrington as global art director. In this dimension, Steve is a prolific LA-based illustrator, sculptor, and painter informed by skate culture, music, and pop art. His assembly of fantastic flora, fauna, and friends is inspired by California’s mystique, vastly diverse landscape, and thriving mix of cultures. His connection to Pharrell (beyond just mutual appreciation and shared interests) came in 2019 with a comprehensive collaboration with P’s BBC brand. In addition to BBC, Steve has produced collaborations with Nike, Uniqlo, Disney, The Hundreds, and more.
