Tocayo’s Native signage

Here’s a little footage behind the sign that Tocayo created for the Native exhibition at Swiv Tackle Circus in Oceanside, CA. Stacy and Sean Kelley of Set & Drift helped paint out the sign lettering while Tocayo built up the black edges of his dream-catcher illustration.

And if you missed the NATIVE opening, this is a good time to see the exhibition before it’s gone on May 23rd!



It’s clear the magic that California holds.
She is the muse to many musicians around the world.
I think all of us can relate to a little California dreamin’

enjoy this mix with a cold Corona!

Before the harvest…

The installation for the NATIVE exhibition at SWIV TACKLE CIRCUS began today. We can’t wait to kick back with you on Saturday and enjoy the show!

We’re beginning to reap quite the harvest from SWIV’s urban-community garden, a collaboration amongst SWIV, Hill Street Cafe (next door), and some obliging neighbors. We’re excited to share the booty at NATIVE, as well as some tantalizing fresh squeezed juice from locally grown blood oranges, courtesy of Hill Street.
