Salvador's Story
Amy found a pregnant stray cat at work one night and brought her home. Because of her colorful spots, she named her Pinta, meaning to paint in Spanish. It would prove to be a well-chosen name. Pinta gave birth to five kittens in Amy's art studio with Amy by her side the whole nine hours. Kitten number two was special from the beginning. They named him Salvador. He was the first of the litter to walk, eat, open his eyes, and notice all of Amy's paintings. He would walk over to them and sit and stare, like he was studying them. Soon Salvador became a painter. He put his paws into the paint and walked on the canvas. Salvador and mama Pinta live with Amy's family in Atlanta.

Artist Bio
Amy Pugh was born in Atlanta, GA. She began her career in art early on. She was sketching her stuffed animals before she could talk. She followed her gift all through high school and on the first day of class at Georgia State University, she learned of the unexpected death her father. She took this time to explore all avenues of artful expression and fell in love with the free spirit of art. She chose to avoid the conventional ways of studying art and approached her gifts on her own terms. These heart felt emotions, coupled with an innate curiosity of animals, has created the artist she is today.

Designing Art for Printing: The Salvador Kitti Process
Our accessories are printed using a new, highly technical digital process called all over photo realism. Our process for making t-shirts all starts with one of Amy’s painting. The painting is given to a design team, who takes the image and turn it into a computer generated version of that painting using the t-shirt color(s) the client has chosen for their order. Once the design has been completed it is posted to our Art Approval Directory. Once the screen printing design is approved it goes to our production artist, who takes the design apart with a process called color separation. It involves a complex process of
printing each color on a film positive. The film positives are then used by the screening department to burn the image on the screens using ultraviolet light. Ink colors are then poured into the proper screens, which are in turn lowered onto the actual shirt. After curing the ink in a special dryer, Quality Control inspects each garment to ensure they meet our high standards. We also make embroidery for denim shirts. Our artists digitize the design, which maps out every stitch of the design for our advanced machines to sew on the denim.
