Guest Artist: Pete Taboada

This is the FIRST in our (upcoming) Guest Artist series. This week we’re profiling Pete Taboada! After finding that his previous work as a graphic designer wasn't satisfying his creative soul, Pete Taboada became Pete Taboada: Visionary Spiritual Artist. He now uses art and creativity to inspire, transform, and elevate both awareness and emotion. We couldn't have asked for a better artist to work with on our first collaboration! His design, Wings of Rebirth, was our Design Highlight this week, but we wanted to learn more about the artist himself.  Check out our Q&A session below!   QWhat should we call...

Design Highlight: Wings of Rebirth Dragonfly Yoga Mat

This week’s Design Highlight also serves as an introduction to our brand-new Guest Artist collection! (Currently featuring only one design from one artist, but more collaborations are in the works! :-) Our very first guest artist is Pete Taboada of North Dallas, Texas. Our collaboration was born of serendipity, when his manager approached us at our booth at a bridal expo in St. Paul this past winter and said “You know what would look really great on a yoga mat…” Pete is an amazing artist and an amazing human being. He’s always been an artist, but he didn’t find that...
