When Trip Park began painting he sought out what made him smile foremost.  Trained as an art director straight out of UNC's Journalism School, he has traveled down a number of creative paths before deciding to start a brand of his own.

After a number of years in advertising, children's book illustration, editorial cartooning and animation character design, Trip has turned his most recent span of whimsically painted subjects into Ringneck & Lure's sporting line of 100% silk neckties and pocket squares.  From elephants to game birds, fly lures to lobster buoys, all of these bright and vibrant designs will now hopefully make others smile as well!

Loosen up!
