My fiancé said the papa bear t-shirt was itchy even after being washed a few times. The baby bear onesie (6 month size) fit my 2 month old perfectly but sadly he won't be able to fit into it as he's getting bigger and bigger. My little guy is a big guy for his age though! It was a cute Father's Day gift for both my fiancé and son!

Hi there- I'm sorry your husband does not find the shirt comfortable. Our shirts are all 100% cotton, name brand shirts which are the most breathable option. As for sizing, I have created size charts for all listings and sizes - but babies are tough. My young girl is 5 month old, and she is wearing 9-12 month clothing! So when in doubt, it is always best to measure by the size chart, or size up! I'm glad everyone liked the designs and that Kitsch could be a part of your Father's Day celebrations :)

About

A small hobby gone mad.

You know, I never took any art classes in school. I always felt like they would be a waste of time. Pffft. Who takes things like art, anyways?

I did draw at home - I loved cartoons. LOVED. But at school, it was always business. Marketing, accounting, entrepreneurship. That was my groove.

In grade 12, this all changed. I started to think to myself, "You know, I don't really know if I want to go into a career where I never do any art or anything for the rest of my life." Now that was probably a pretty dramatic statement, all things considered. Even if one was an accountant, that would not mean that one could not do art for a hobby. But suddenly, I felt the need to find a career that would meld art and business together. "Marketing!" I thought.

Only... I'm not very good at math. Humbling to say, but true. I was great at business, crap with numbers. I was signed up for calculus in grade 13, until guidance sent me a very politely worded letter saying "are you SURE you want to take this course?"

Ok, I got the hint. And I had heard about this thing called...graphic design. That sounded neat. Looking into it further, I realized that it was actually, REALLY neat. It was basically a perfect blend of art an business. It was art FOR business! Design. Art. Business. Sales. All the things I loved rolled into one.

Fast forward about 5 years later, and I was working as a Graphic Designer in a little print shop in Toronto. I was learning all the cool things you could do and how to print them, and how you could achieve by hand with a few tools.

THEN I took my love of cartoons to a whole new level, by attending my first Anime convention, where I met an artist who instantly inspired me to try my own hand at things!

Hence was born the idea of creating something all my own; putting to use the illustration skills I had learned in college, together with the style of illustration I had learned during the first place I worked (where I got the opportunity to draw a lot of different icon-esque illuistrations). Mix those together with some newfound knowledge of how to get things done and some geeky humor, and Kitsch Klothing was born!

I have changed over the years. I have grown older, I now am the proud Wife and Mother of my little family. I have changed employers and explored different facets of the design and advertising world. But I still love creating colourful, witty designs that I can share with friends (new and old!). I hope you enjoy. I hope I make you smile. :)
