Our favorite collaboration of the last season has been working with Wilmington-based, award-winning artist and animator Trevor van Meter, a.k.a. HeyTVM. We tapped Trevor to create a new look and feel for our popular East Beach apparel. His gift for playful gifs and animations crafted from simple lines was just the right vibe for all the good times that happen at Beach Access 42. When he's not making custom animations for Google or YouTube or creating custom emojis for Kim Kardashian, you can find Trevor at his shop at 21 S. 2nd Street in downtown Wilmington.

In addition to t-shirts, hats, and hoodies, HeyTVM made a suite of animated stickers you can download to your phone. So next time someone asks where you want to go on vacation, just send them this?
Finally, we asked Trevor to share some thoughts on his work, his career path, and his design philosophy, so you could get to know a bit more about the artist behind our new East Beach collection.
When it comes to surfing Bald Head Island, we’ve got you covered. Through the years we must have helped well over 5,000 people stand up and surf their first wave at East Beach Access #42.
