Illustrated and hand-lettered by New Orleans native Jeff Pastorek, the‘I Love You Louisiana’ design celebrates our beloved state and is inspired by an‘I Love You California’ illustration from 1913. Our ILYL collection has expanded into a number of Louisiana-inspired products and remains committed to its original mission to inspire love and appreciation for Louisiana and donating 20% of proceeds from all sales to victims of Louisiana floods and to grassroots organizers actively working with social and environmental issues in our state.
Maria is a barista at a DNO favorite – Mammoth Espresso. Only recently have we learned of her prolific creativity, though we wish we'd asked sooner. A Russian-American photographer and illustrator, Maria's PANSproject is immediately intriguing, gifting the viewer a truly fresh perspective. We had the pleasure of speaking with Maria about her work, the PANS project, and of course, New Orleans.
