Without love in the dream, it will never come true...🌻

Aloha folks! ❤️
Welcome to Mongo Arts LLC. I’ve been selling artwork here on etsy for about 12 years. Everything you see in this shop is drawn, designed, printed, packaged & shipped to you from me.

I utilize many different print styles from hand silk screen printing to using eco friendly inks & digital printing with Direct-to Garment prints giving apparel the softest hand feel out there imo. Always trying my best to keep creating new art, apparel and funky accessories of the highest quality!

Besides clothing, I design and produce limited edition collector lapel pins, posters, belt buckles, stickers, embroidered clothing and patches, jewelry, prints, mugs, and all mostly in small batches. We do wholesale, just shoot us a message. We create, design and produce a plethora of merch for many artists, bands & shops around the country so dont hesitate to message us here!

Hopped on this bumpy but beautiful road less traveled back in 1992. I had just finished graphic design school and with no plan B, hit the road with the Dead of course! With a trusty 1 color screen printer, an 80 Chevy Van with 300,000 miles on it, a Rand McNally map, finding inspiration around every corner! A creative itch that burns almost as bright as the ever evolving, never stopping music that brings us all together and provides the timeless soundtrack to our souls. What a long, strange trip this is! 🚐✌🏼🪩💃

We are committed to providing high quality products with outstanding customer service and giving you the kindest shopping experience possible. We are always here to answer any questions you may have about anything & do our best to reply in a timely fashion. ⏳

I’ll scream it again with a bullhorn from the top of Franklins Tower just how deeply I cherish our ever evolving, always growing vibrant music & art scene
There’s really no words to do justice the gratitude and love I have for you all. I can’t thank everyone enough who’s shown so much support and love over the years, having patience with us during the supply shortages that almost put the nail in the coffin around 2020. A heartfelt special thanks to everyone of you. 💚

Mongo Arts vision is simple.
To create a more colorful reality or at least shakedown, create quality art and spread a colorful message of love, hope and fully embracing our inner and outer beautiful weirdness and to always fly your freak flags freely. 🍄🆓❤️

Our mission has become crystal clear which is to do what we do best & give all we can to help, inspire, save lives through many causes we deeply care about globally & as of late focused more locally here in NC.
We strive to do our best being active in our community, hosting various fundraisers, giveaways & auctions throughout the years. We have worked diligently with Equality NC & Peer Recovery Center providing resources for drug & alcohol addiction and the building of homeless shelters. We are honored to have teamed up with numerous other non profits such as Conscious Alliance, Jam for Tots, Relay for Life to name a few to do our part in being at the very least, a small catalyst for change.🌹

We demand a better future for the next generations facing many challenges from this mentally and financially taxing pandemic to inflation, economic disparity to the absolute devastating drug epidemic that has ravaged our whole coast of NC as well as the rest of our country. There’s a sincere lack of equality and basic human kindness that needs to change. 🌎🪱🥾🌀

We may be a small business but we do have a big heart, a lot of fight to do what’s right and an overflowing cup of love to share what we got when there is no light.

Aloha folks! 🌝
Welcome to Mongo Arts LLC. We are a small family business & have been selling Josh’s artwork here on etsy for about 12 years. Everything in our Etsy shop is drawn, designed, printed, packaged & shipped with love to you from us all created in our small home print shop.

We utilize many different print options from hand silk screen printing to using eco friendly inks & digitally printing with our Direct-to Garment printer giving apparel the softest hand feel imaginable! We do our best to keep our art & apparel fresh, psychedelic & of the highest quality! 🖨

Besides clothing, we’ve designed and produced thousands upon thousands of different types of numbered & limited edition collector lapel hat pins & rare belt buckles which we randomly release in small batches monthly. We design & print L.E. hats, stickers, jewelry, prints, mugs, patches, blankets, handmade soaps & and other heady oddities with our art that sometimes rarely even makes it to the website as we have too much fun surprising you all with freebies in orders! You all are truly the best and we appreciate each and every one of you just like family. ❤️⚡️❤️

We also create, design and produce a plethora of merch for many bands and kind businesses in the music festival scene since taking this road less traveled back in 1992 when I finished graphic design school. With no plan B, hit the road with the Dead, a 1 color screen printer, a 1980 Chevy van with 300,000 miles on it, a Rand McNally map (pre-cell phones) & a creative itch that burns almost as bright as the ever evolving, never stopping music that brings us together and provides the timeless soundtrack to our dancing souls. 🚐🚦💃

We are committed to providing high quality products with outstanding customer service and giving you the kindest shopping experience possible. We are always here to answer any questions you may have about anything & we do our best to reply to every message within 24 hours. ⏳

And I’ll scream it again with a bullhorn from the top of Franklins Tower just how deeply we cherish our vibrant music & art scene and most importantly YOU reading this, in this very moment and everyone who’s shown us support and love over the years, helping keep a roof over our head, having patience with us during the supply shortages that almost put the nail in the coffin last year. A heartfelt special thanks to everyone of you souls, every order has helped keep our bellies full & most importantly helping keep our daughter Scarlets belly full and her mind and heart healthy who’s now 10 & becoming a blossoming creative artist in her own right.🌹

Some say the soul in the darkness is closest to the light and after slowly climbing out of the darkness of the last couple years, I’m determined to not only survive but to thrive and create something truly built to last as we patch our wounds and strive to live a more mindful purpose filled life, a focus on staying true to our creative nature & being of service to others. What tomorrow brings, no one knows, yet we have luckily learned to adapt not only as compassionate creatures but evolve as a business to survive yet still lend a helping hand, a smile, hug or anything we can do to help our sisters and brothers during hard times in general.🙏
