About

THINGS ARE COOL. I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU MY COOL THINGS I MAKE.

AwesomelyWalrus wasn't a thing that was an instant idea - in fact, it was one that took a lot of thought and planning. But the idea of the products wasn't that way at all. Every morning when I wake up, I spend 5-10 min scrolling Instagram, looking through my friends' photos and whatnot. One day, I saw a picture that my friend took in a cafe of a California-shaped string art with a heart over the Bay Area and I thought, "well... I could do that!" That day I got ready and left for my local craft store, bought some supplies, and did it!

Well, almost. I used thread instead of the string I use now. (https://www.instagram.com/p/6_wrb1IIvF/?taken-by=soawesomeness), but that's how the idea was born. Nerdy ideas then came flowing out and I created so many after refining the craft. At one point, I even did a statement piece for a lounge in Huntington Beach (https://www.instagram.com/p/BHuKBqcAWCS/?taken-by=soawesomeness) which was INSANE! Never in a million years did I think I would do an art installation that was all the way across the state. But, apprehensively, I did it!

I look back and think how simple those days were - all I needed was some wood, nails, hammer, and string.

Now I've expanded into nerdy greeting cards, vinyl decals, custom glassware, and anything else I (or YOU) can think of! So please message me for custom pieces or modifications! I can make things usually within a few days and gladly will work on custom pieces with you! Don't hesitate to inquire!

As a lover of lots of nerdy/geeky things, my inspiration to create unique art naturally gravitated to creating items that are often inspired by cartoons, video games, or even just cute or interesting subjects.

My first exposure to string art was on a friend's Instagram, with the subject of the art being California and an outline of a heart where the Bay Area was from. I immediately thought "I could TOTALLY do that!" and thus my passion for creating string art was born.

I hope you enjoy the string art I create and I hope that the items I create bring you some joy in your life.

Thank you for visiting AwesomelyWalrus!
