Ball Harder Vol. 1 Launch

Please join us for Friday, November 2nd from 6-9pm as we celebrate the launch of Dustin Canalin's Ball Harder VOL 1 at the downtown shop! We'll be unveiling the first edition of the "Ball Harder" zine & collection of sketches by Dustin O. Canalin. Zines will be available for purchase onsite, plus limited-edition merch in collaboration with Oaklandish! RSVP here.
It all starts with a simple doodle. An idea which transforms into reality once it hits the paper.  As a veteran in both the basketball and design field, Dustin Canalin has been turning his doodles into some of the most recognized products for the past 2 decades. Whether it’s through UNDRCRWN, a company which he founded, or Nike Basketball, where his work has been celebrated worldwide amongst athletes, celebrities and fans alike. 

BALL HARDER VOL 1, “The Bay” Edition is inspired by Canalin’s roots in Oakland. Through this collection of illustrated doodles, he extends the spirit of “The Town” and all of its cultural touchstones.

The spirit of “Ball Harder” stems from Canalin’s own life experience: 

“Every time I reach a milestone, a new set of challenges also arrive. It has kept me motivated and reminded me that you have to constantly push yourself to be and do better. The cycle never ends. You just have to Ball Harder!"
