Superfishal Earthquake Hoodie in Brown released by Upper Playground

Upper Playground favorite Jeremy Fish releases his Earthquake Hoodie this week with his signature style and storytelling capacity. Jeremy Fish explains the inspiration behind this art like this:

“According to the California natives, the reason we have earthquakes is because the land is built on the backs of giant turtles. Earthquakes happen when the turtles argue, and their shells grind on each other. Turtle tectonics!” -JF
