The Raven T-Shirt is a collaboration between Uplift Adventures and Lucid Arts – Nichole Yanota. Nichole is a beautiful artist and graphic designer. She is also the artist behind our logo and we love working with Nichole. We feel very connected with Nichole as we love her passion for creating beautiful images and her love for nature. This art piece was inspired as we wanted to showcase our love for Crowsnest Pass and knew Nichole would be able to create it. The raven is an intelligent bird that is commonly seen in the area (yes, we have crows too, but often see the big, black raven) and is an important bird both spiritually and to indigenous people. We wanted Crowsnest Pass to be centered in the shirt as we think of Crowsnest Mountain as the heart of the area. We can see this mountain from nearly every single mountain top in southern Alberta and it really speaks to us. It is a special mountain. Nichole finished the art piece with some of our favourite flowers in the South Canadian Rockies: paintbrush and spotted saxifrage.
