About them

Marie and Graham began their partnership in early 2010 when they realized that their mutual interest in art – coupled with their quirky senses of humor – would lend themselves well to a career in either train graffiti or T-shirt design. They decided to go with the latter.

Marie has fancied herself a freelance artist for over 20 years, with a Bachelor’s degree in fine art and writing. She has illustrated books, written a musical, painted portraits, sketched a gazillion still lifes, designed promotional materials, and essentially doodled her way through school. Her work history includes running an offset press, painting murals on a gymnasium wall, and retouching painted statues.

Graham spent over two decades in the print trade as a traditional cut-and-paste graphic designer, darkroom operator, and occasional offset press operator. He has designed miniature aircraft and boats, written a monthly magazine column, a book, and many freelance articles. He recently returned to traditional art in which he is self taught; to dabble in the British landscapes he loves, and to study figure drawing.

While Marie was raised in the U.S., Graham grew up in the U.K., so you’ll notice that he spells things with extra U’s. This cannot be helped. You’ll eventually see the humour. (See?). Together, they plan to clothe the world in fun and artsy T-shirts. We hope you find something happy here.

  1. You guys are doing cool stuff! I checked out your website with merchandise designs, and I really like them. Clever designs — especially the “unlikely events” collection. It’s great to see creative minds putting a business together. I’ve recently started designing t-shirts and doing a bit of painting to try and stretch myself (I’m a graphic designer), and I enjoy discovering others who are working their creative minds. Good luck to you guys!

  2. Thank you for your encouraging comments. We are very pleased that you like our designs. I’ve taken a look at your blog and I love the fun mix that you have there. We encourage you to paint, no matter what you produce it will be a valuable experience to add to your creative base. All the best to you too.

  3. Good post. I learn one thing more difficult on different blogs everyday. It can at all times be stimulating to read content material from other writers and follow a bit of one thing from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a hyperlink in your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
