Hey there amigo!

Confucius say “Man with feet firmly planted on ground have trouble putting on pants”, which is good, because we really don't like wearing pants. SlackerTide about finding that peaceful stride in life that makes it all worth it. When you mix a little chill with a lot of rad ya get something interesting. We believe in a few things: great design, a solid sense of humor & living life to the fullest. 

We also should not be using the word “we” in our description, because there isn’t a we. It’s just me: Richard Blanco, a one man band, full time artist, part time angler, and mediocre golfer.  SlackerTide has emerged from posting fishing art on Instagram and has morphed into a full time pursuit.  I work out of a hot Florida garage, fulfilling orders, answering emails, illustrating content, designing products, blah , blah, blah, occasionally taking a break to sling a line, hack a ball, or walk my dog.

So, if you're reading this, you've found me somehow, and I’m glad ya did. Hopefully, my guiding principles resonate with you in some way. Thanks for taking the ride, and the support. Remember less is more ... more or less. 

Give a man to fish and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you'll turn him into a liar. -  Benjamin Franklin
