As we all know, life takes us all in unexpected directions. My wife and I are now solely producing my artwork. I create the portraits, my wife does the marketing, when we get our orders we both produce the product be it a t shirt a print a tote bag or one of the other numerous items we carry.
We continue to create new artwork and find new products to print it on so visit our shop often to see new portraits and product!

Thanks... Steve
