Art That Goes everywhere
Pepper Raccoon was created in 2016 as an original source of creatively-designed pins, patches, and apparel for unique individuals around the world. I'm a working artist that wants to make art affordable, accessible, and available to everyone, everywhere. I love to draw traditionally, and digitally, and creating products from my work is a great way to make my art easy to access. There's a feral edge to my designs, and I'm proud of that.
One year later, I've successfully built a business that is selling independently from New Zealand, as well as exporting to several retailers overseas and here at home. I've also custom designed pins for vegan bakeries, feminist groups, conferences, and other progressive organisations and events.
I donate portions of proceeds of certain products to charities each year, as well as working hard to reduce our footprint by using less plastic (paper-padded mailers, biodegradable cellophane, less bubble-wrap, etc.). We have made contributions from sales to the ACLU, Forest & Bird, and GlobalGiving, and seek to make more contributions in the future.

WHO IS PEPPER RACCOON?
I am a creative artist and illustrator living and working in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. I'm fiercely independent in my work, and place a heavy emphasis on supporting initiatives and projects that promote a better future for our world, with a focus on environmental and social benefits. I love drawing and sharing my work on social media with friends and fans!
My partner Peter and I are also avid gardeners and environmentalists, working towards a goal of transforming a large pastoral block of land into a productive and integrated permaculture property that will feed both us and the native wildlife that surrounds us. When you buy anything from Pepper Raccoon, that's where the money is going (besides into making more cool stuff).
Thank you for supporting my artwork, and my future endeavours as a land steward.
