Here at Hi-Tec Sports USA, Inc., The Original Lightweight Footwear Company, we realize how important it is to support the many great organizations that work so diligently to ensure that the world’s great natural resources are cared for and protected.
Hi-Tec is celebrating its 30th year within the outdoor industry in 2008 and we decided to go back to our roots and rekindle a successful program that was created in partnership with the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) over 10 years ago: Posters for Parks. This time around we’ve made a wearable message of conservation to raise funds through the Hi-Tec/NPCA "YOU" program.
These 100% organic t-shirts do just that: raising awareness and funds in support of a great cause. Hi-Tec has commissioned the talents of Kurt Holloman, outdoor artisan/craftsman, to design the artwork for the t-shirt. Its simple message of outdoor responsibility and adventure put YOU at the core of preserving the natural beauty of the outdoors. Hi-Tec has also committed to creating, purchasing, marketing and selling the YOU program shirts. All proceeds will go directly to the NPCA.
Habitual sketchbook practitioner—Kurt Hollomon's work employs the direct observational drawing style that gives his illustrations a sense of reality tempered with a quirky, spirited line. Former Mt. Rainier climbing guide, Kurt has been art director, designer and now illustrator as well as teacher of drawing and illustration at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
A modern day Magellan with a Micron or possibly Lewis or Clark in a Land Rover; bouncing towards the southern tip of Patagonia with a cheese sandwich and bottle of water tossed into a shoulder bag filled with drawing supplies... few artists have been able to capture the beauty, history, and happiness of the outdoor lifestyle as Kurt has.
