PRLog (Press Release) – May 22, 2012 – The economy has turned upward, and Artist Drew Brophy is celebrating by revealing all new art at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.  The show, to be held June 12-14, 2012, is where the world’s popular brands exhibit their latest creations to manufacturers.

Drew Brophy properties are represented by agency Son of the Sea, Inc.

Known for surfing big waves and adventuring the globe, Drew Brophy’s art has been represented in the niche of surf art and action sports for over 25 years.  He has licensed his art to many big brands, including K-Swiss, Converse, Wham-O, Sigg, Walter Foster and Hard Rock Casino.

Now, Drew Brophy will reach a broader demographic through newly created art, which will be revealed for the first time at Licensing Expo.

His new creations include an Epoch Earth line, sun & fun theme for kids and  his inspiring brand dubbed “IYI” which stands for “Inspire Your Imagination.”

Maria Brophy, CEO of Son of the Sea, Inc., attributes over 60% of their licensing success to first contact at Licensing Expo events.

Licensing Expo allows us to meet the “who’s-who” in licensing.  With each exhibit, we walk away with at least five or six new deals that we otherwise wouldn’t have.”  Maria Brophy says.

This year, we will double that, as we are launching new art categories designed specifically for mainstream tastes.  Drew’s surf-themed art will always be available, but we wanted to broaden our reach beyond the niche.

The Brophy’s have a few “not to miss” events at their booth #4811 at Licensing Expo:

Paintings in Studio for new Sun N Fun Collection


 

One of my newest license deals is with a custom flip-flop company called Sandalista.

(See the official Press Release here)

They create print-on-demand sandals and have an awesome printing process, which works great with the bright colors in my art.

They started with a dozen of my designs, and I’ll be adding new ones every quarter or so.

They also print the art of other artists.

So far, people love them.  You can see all of my flip-flop sandal designs here at Sandalista.com.

(Thanks to all of my friends and family members who have already bought a pair for the summer!)

Sandalista wrote a press release about our partnership, which you can read on PRLOG.
