BRANDON BOYD HOOKS UP WITH HURLEY: Brandon Boyd, a lifelong surfer, artist and the frontman of rock band Incubus, is multitasking in the name of charity. The Southern California-based Boyd is collaborating with action sports brand Hurley on a capsule collection of T-shirts to benefit Helping Other People Everywhere, a non-profit group that promotes education and peace.

Printed with Boyd’s simple drawings of a whale that swallowed plastic bottles, a floating isle of plastic and an abstract interpretation of the earth, the Ts include the word “hope,” integrating the Hurley logo. “It’s a large extended family,” Boyd said of his decade-long relationship with the Costa Mesa, Calif.-based brand. “We’ve taken surf trips with them. We’ve always talked about doing things together.” The timing was right after Incubus finished recording its seventh studio album called “If Not Now, When?” slated to drop this summer. “We’re trying to convey a simple message but an important one,” Boyd said. “My true hope is that it turns up the heat a little more on legislation on plastic water bottles and single-use plastic.” Retailing for between $28 and $32, the recycled cotton Ts will be sold at Hurley’s stores and retailers such as Macy’s, starting April 1. The Buckle will start selling an exclusive shirt and specially designed water bottle on April 25. Until then, Boyd’s art also can be seen on a mural he’s doing at the Hurley factory and a reception feting the collaboration on March 24 at the Seathos Foundation in Venice, Calif.
