About

Push the envelope. Think outside of the box!

When I was a kid, one of my favorite things to do was to create elaborate gifts for my friends. Everyone has to have tried the old box in a box in a box in a box trick, right? I remember there was one time I made a greeting card made out of a splitting Coca-Cola can where original characters my friend had created would kind of pop out. I also enjoyed illustrating greeting cards and even enjoyed putting my own little stamp on the back like Hallmark does.

Looking back, the reason why I enjoyed doing these things was because of the reactions I would get from my friends. I loved seeing the look of surprise and wonder in their faces. I loved hearing how professional stuff looked. I’ve always loved all forms of art, but that spirit of gift giving has always stuck with me.

Nowadays I find myself obsessed with t-shirts and t-shirt packaging. My goal is to infuse some sort of humor or role-playing in them. They must also always meet a certain level of quality. My special ‘Angels’ packaging opened my eyes to this, and other packages soon followed after that. It is so fun to push the envelope and think outside of the box. Literally.

I’m really thankful for the opportunity to share my talents with others. If I can make someone out there smile or laugh, then I can call my work successful.
