This week’s featured guest is Kelvis Polanco aka Fuzzed Up Bear. We came to learn of him through the recommendation of the crew at Uptown Beer Society in regards to the labels he has down for Gun Hill Brewing Company. But this is a great example of why I love doing this project. The number of hats and personas he has and wears are vast with each being impressive, exciting and reflective. Learn the evolution of the Bear as an outlet and opportunity to create for himself after hours in corporate life and fashion. It has literally taken on a life of its own as an outlet for his life, society and commentary. Fuzzed Up Bear is honest, funny, tired and real. There is a Fuzzed Up Bear in all of us. On top of that and what might be one of the most powerful and beautiful pieces of the story is his most recent collaboration with Pantone. Yes that Pantone. The Human Being Initiative It was created to engage, educate and empower the public to support social change and the fight against racial inequality and injustice in the United States and beyond. 100% of the proceeds of the sale of any Human Being Initiative products will directly benefit the work of Black Lives Matter, American Civil Liberties Union and Campaign Zero. BUT wait there’s more… advice galore for folks getting started on their creative journey and those who have been at it for years. On top of that we talk about family and dad life as well as his newest adventure and what seems to be a culmination of his journey, tattoos. His new project and passion is called which Sick Crayons which from the IG account is awesome. I definitely want to get something from him in the future. This episode delivers and has a great perspective on life and doing what you love. You don’t want to miss it. We dedicate this episode to all of the teachers out there who see something in us that we didn’t know was there. Thank you!
