Trevor Phillips is a B.C. born and raised artist, and is the creative force behind newly formed local clothing company Ebon Aves Apparel. He has been drawing and creating since he was old enough to hold a pencil.
His work ranges from one of a kind canvases to eye catching event posters. T-shirt design has always been Trevor’s passion, and he finally made the leap into the fashion world when Ebon Aves arrived on the scene in early 2010.
Many of his designs are inspired by nature, and the complex relationships inherent between man, beast, and the environment. He designs and prints all of Ebon Aves shirts himself, applying his eye for detail and demand for quality to each piece he creates. The end product is a unique piece of artwork you can wear.

I work at an embroidery shop on Oak St. I’m the main production imprint specialist, working with screen printing, embroidering, digital garment printing, and heat pressed vinyl.
