As of recently, our Volcom Hawaii collections have been sold exclusively in Hawaii as most pieces held an esoteric meaning behind the art, but with our all-new Drew Toonz X Volcom Hawaii Collection, the art is universal as it provides 100% pure Volcom x Hawaii stoke beyond the island. Volcanos, ukuleles, palm trees, hula girls, pineapples, and more, this collection represents just a few of the aloha staples in the Hawaiian culture.
The boardshort, two tees, and hat in this collection are also part of our Give Back program where a portion of the sales go directly to The Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii which has been a close-to-heart partnership for Volcom over the years in continuing to support the Hawaiian youth of today. Explore our collaboration with Philly-turned-Hawaii-native Drew Toonz HERE, and get to know the man behind the art below!
Who are your favorite artists?
The late great Shawn Barney Barron, Ozzy Wrong, Norman Rockwell, Matt Groening
Who are your favorite bands / musicians?
Too many to mention but I'm proud to have collaborated with Pepper, Trouble Andrew, Santigold, Goons of Doom, and Lil Wayne... and did some album art for an emerging artist called Deepakalypse with Everloving Records.
How did this Volcom x Drew Toonz Hawaii collection start?
Volcom asked me to jump and I said "how high?"
How did you decide on what to draw?
Working with Volcom comes very natural to me because my ideas flow with their mana. It's never really any big decisions... it's usually the first thing that comes to mind and it always works out.
What are your favorite Volcom pieces to wear?
I like their fun, cartoony sock puppets and soft organic t-shirts and I have one pair of Volcom jeans I got from a thrift store in Philly and they are the last pair of jeans I'll ever need.
Any last words?
Aloha and Mahalo !
