The Mural Life of Hannah Eddy

Whether they’re surfing on a whale’s nose or growing shrooms on their shell, the funky characters in Hannah Eddy’s artwork pop with color and charm.

The illustrator and muralist based in Reno, NV aims to “dance the line between super wacky and weird” while still making each creation inviting. Her imaginative landscapes and bold line work draw you in — sometimes inviting reflection, maybe offering encouragement, or it’s just a clever frog with a security camera for an eye.

And the consistent cameos of skateboards, mountains, and water are no mistake; Hannah takes endless inspiration from board/snow/surf culture. She lives it herself, finding any chance to ride, carve, and feel the wind. Her art is rooted in a reverence for nature, and Hannah hopes it can “help her fellow humans…give a hoot about each other and our planet.”

Her recent Strainge Beast mural in Reno takes our hungry Lemon and slithering Watermelon and weaves them into a world that’s uniquely Hannah.

Once we saw that radical wall, we knew we had to put the scene on a custom tee. Hannah made it happen, and you can grab one of these extremely limited shirts while they last.
