Hipcamp collaborated with illustrator and painter Wyatt Hersey to create the Summer of Magic Campout Series artwork. Wyatt’s work explores narratives of relational ecology, deep ecology, and ecological consciousness. His background as a wildlife biologist and nature connection mentor greatly informs his work as a visual artist, as does his belief that art is an essential expression of the goodness of humanity. Wyatt loves biking, is an avid birder, is learning to surf and spends as much time as possible outside. You can follow Wyatt on Instagram and view more of his work on his portfolio website.
