Let’s get to it. We’re here to promote our dear friends at Slowtide’s Creative Canvas Art and Photo contest.

Now let’s ask a series of questions. If you nod your head to any one of them, cast your gaze south to the rules and regulations of the aforementioned contest.

Do you like to draw? Paint? Doodle? Watercolor?

Do your friends consult you when they want a bit of color, or creative flair on the walls of their homes?

Have you ever slapped a brush to canvas?

What about a spraycan to a wall?

Paint pen to a surfboard deck?

When you post your film photos to Instagram, do you pompously tag #35mm so the people of the internet know you respect the art of film?

Do you own a camera that is not an iPhone, Android, or Blackberry?

Did you just remember that Blackberries were once more popular than the iPhone?

Are you now nostalgic for your Motorola RAZR?

Are you too young to understand the last two questions?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then please consult the below.

Here’s Chippa Wilson from Slowtide’s 2018 line.

The following is a PSA from our friends at Slowtide Towels:

Announcing the Slowtide Creative Canvas Art Contest
