The Eclipse is a new release that is a collaboration with OhYesYo! It was designed last year when Coffin came to visit for the Eclipse.
One Drop x OhYesYo Eclipse
On the 21st of August 2017, the “Great American Eclipse” happened. It was a total solar eclipse. As the two heavenly bodies came into alignment, we found beauty in the darkness. Coffin Nachtmahr, Founder of OhYesYo, Frequency Wavelength Modulator, and Yo-yoing’s Modern Anti-Hero, tells the story of the Eclipse:
— The Set Up —
This project started as a camping trip to Marty Coatney’s farm in Lebanon, Oregon. He invited a bunch of yoyoers and others to the land to see the 2017 solar eclipse. Andy Kenst (a yo-yoer who lived in Oregon near One Drop) and myself had been building a friendship and he helped fund a project of mine earlier that year and was like “Coffin, you gotta come see this man.” Apprehensive as I usually am, I explained I’d try to make it. A week later Andy messaged me and said “Hey, I got you a plane ticket – see you soon lol.” From that point on it was all great – I’d never been to Oregon and I was beyond hype. Andy joked about collaborating with One Drop and I said if they’re interested I’d gladly draw something up on the spot.
