Guayakí Yerba Mate - A Powerful Rainforest Experience
Featured Artist: Champoy
His work: Champoy mainly draws complex comics in color, and occasionally also designs tattoos. He designed this mystical third eye gourd for a special limited-edition t-shirt run.
His story: Champoy was born and raised in the Philippines, in the town of Camp Phillips, Bukidnon, which was "surrounded by an ocean of pineapples that went on as far as the eyes could see," he says. "As a child, I always wondered about the kind of world that existed beyond those fields." Champoy came to the U.S. in 2002 and lives in Historic West Adams, South Central Los Angeles.
What he loves about yerba mate: "Mate gives me the clarity I need to get work done. A clear high."
