We just released our latest season here at Raw Wonders. The season consisted of the Classic Mr.Wonders tee shirt, The Wompton tee shirt and the WONDERS crewneck. This season told what the brand was about. The face resembles the face of the company, a revamp of the og logo back in 2011. The Wompton tee is a flip of the known Compton design we all know of. As a brand based out of the west coast, I had to drop this. Simplicity and creativity is something you will see alot from this brand and the WONDERS crewneck shows that. It’s more complex than the other designs and with a lot more detail. Every letter consists of a flip on classic cartoon characters that were important to me growing up. Everything in this drop is limited and won’t be restocked any time soon. Support your local weirdos!
For this next season, I picked up three more sales reps and as of now the brand consists of 6 team memberes besides myself. We all come from different backrounds and we all have different passions. I didn’t want a group of Oompa Loompas as my team. As a brand based out of Southern California, I wanted it to represent that, a melting pot of different people and different ideas. Check out “The Weirdos” section above and follow them on their instagram. This is the start of something beautiful, a family that will help me build this brand to the top. Holiday season coming soon.
On a daily basis, I go on different blogs and get inspiration from designs, interviews, lookbooks, etc. I came across of this video where Pharrell is doing an interview on two of the most creative people I know. I was a little thrown off when a naked woman walked into the room, but things like that make interviews different, and different is good. Enjoy and get inspired.
At this moment of my life, I’m busier than ever. Trying to find the direction for the brand, the image it portrays, being consistent, etc. Having a brand isn’t easy and I’m grateful for how far I have came. I’ve been having work that goes above my shoulders in college, from my web design class to my illustration class, where the professor is a maniac. I’ve invested a lot of my sweat and tears on this next batch that will be out VERY SOON. To the people that stay updated on the blog, instagram, facebook, etc., thank you. This next batch is the biggest batch yet, which is why I took a while to put it out. Follow your dreams and never give up on where your heart resides. Most importantly, just create.
As a west coast native, i’ve been following K Dot for a good minute now and it is such a blessing to have seen him live in concert as well. T.D.E as a unit is perfect and its such an amazing feeling to stay on your path and not sell out. The mainstream came to them, they never went to the mainstream.They haven’t changed their sound and they continue to stay humble. This video was amazing.
Out of all the people recorded, it was cool to see myself come out with a Raw Wonders t-shirt. Go read a previous post to see what this event was all about. Enjoy this small recap and if you did not attend this year, make sure to go next year.

So I’ve been in contact with HiGHFii KiDDO for a minute now and we’ve become pretty good friends. He respects what I do and I respect what he does 100%. This song right here really explains my life. Give him a listen and make sure you follow him on his journey to the top. Wish us luck.
