ARTIST SPOTLIGHT – ARCHIVES
Supporting Local Artists
As part of our Positive Impact Plan (link), Mayflower partners with local artists to design limited run packaging for top selling flower products. Each month a new package is released, donating $1 of each unit sold to Unbound Visual Arts. See our previous Mayflower Artist Spotlight Series packaging art below.
Star Killer • 3.5 grams
I hadn’t experienced Star Killer until last year, and it quickly became one of my favorite, “bright”, lightly-fruity indicas with its status effects of curiosity and cerebral engagement. I was influenced by the name, astrology, and my love of science fiction. I did some research on Neutron stars and became very inspired by the behavior of the literal “star killer”—the center
of the image representing the gravitational rays that surround the resulting core of the neutron star’s explosion.

Acid Dough • 3.5 grams
The color scheme of this piece is inspired from the taste and smell of this sativa strain. It is known to have sweet, candy-like aromas with bright, pineapple flavors. This season, let’s welcome the summer with a stimulating, creative and energizing high. It will have you feeling euphoric at first and like dough after, hence the name ‘Acid Dough’.

“A Psychological Ruse”
Tutankhamon • 3.5 grams
“I based this piece off of its nickname ‘King Tut’. This sativa strain has a predominantly skunky and sour flavor with a hint of fruit. It’s earthy aroma and orange-green buds inspired the color scheme of this artwork. These colors also reflect the pain-relieving and encouraging feeling induced by consuming Tut. It stimulates creativity and is known to help relieve stress.” – Stu Goyal
White Knuckles • 3.5 grams
This Indica dominant strain is known to have a very relaxing and anxiety relieving effect. Living up to its name ‘White Knuckles’, many describe it as a potent, ‘couch-locking’ high, much like being knocked out by a fist. I made this pattern based off some scribbles I find myself making when I am feeling anxious. It helps me focus in the present moment and regain control of my consciousness, almost like meditation.
Hybrid Flower • 3.5 grams
"For my illustration I knew I wanted to create something that felt tangible, as “cream” is such a strong descriptor. “Cream” is something people can easily imagine– how it feels, looks, or maybe even smells. I also knew I wanted my illustration to have a sort of bold, groovy vibe to give it an edge and steer away from an association with food. I used lots
of color in a subtle way to create a more graphic look."
“Figure in the Forest”
Night Terror OG • 7 grams
"For this project I wanted to create imagery that wasn’t outright “horror,” but instead felt eerie and unsettling. I decided to take a very different route than my typical artwork and used a greyscale palette to really allow the composition to tell the story. I want the viewer to spot the figure on their own, unexpectedly, because I feel like that’s a certain kind of terror that doesn’t require them to suspend their disbelief."
"This piece titled “Jarabacoa” is inspired by the mountains and flowers in the Dominican Republic, Camille’s parents’ home country. Camille enjoys working with different mediums and textures, often mimicking the patterns she grew up seeing in and around her home, including her pet corn snake, Kettle, who frequently appears in her work."
