Lets Taco about the Artists

February 25, 2019

Our latest batch of artist series Alphas has a common thread in one of our founders: Guy "Taco" Boyan.

Before we explain the Taco nickname, we'll dive into the Icon Alpha artwork provided by his life long friend Cliff Franks. Featured as a mini stamp and also on the back of hoodies, this is the first of hopefully many collaborations with Cliff. Make sure to check out his portfolio at http://www.clifffranksart.com/ and maybe grab some extra art of his for your wall.

Now on to the story of the Taco art which was provided by Benjamin Hopwood, who also was the man behind the top-selling Spin-O-Saurus art for the Sublime 4th run. Well before we founded MINT, you always knew Guy was around if you heard the "Taco!!!" shouts echoing across the course.
The idea for this art, to honor his nickname, was originally conceived as a present for Guy by one of our other founders, Chris Herbert. With some fortunate timing and sworn secrecy, we decided to surprise Guy with these shirts and discs at our Alpha Challenge at the Flying Armadillo Disc Golf Course as an early birthday present. The plastic is from the 4th Run Eternal Alpha. 
Without Guy as a founding partner of MINT, neither of these amazing works would be possible. From all of your friends and family at MINT, we wish you a Happy Birthday Guy. We are already looking forward to Taco Fest 2020 for your birthday next year!
