About the artist
Tell us about this design.
We wanted to honor the greatest illusionist to ever try and return a frozen dove: George Oscar Bluth Jr. So we put him in our favorite vintage cigarette ad by the great Alphonse Mucha.

If you weren't designing shirts, what would you be doing?

Mayonegg vs. cornballer: which would win the battle?

What is your favorite t-shirt color?
her: Light blue even though I always spill red food on them: ketchup, taco sauce, cocktail sauce, tabasco sauce, barbeque sauce, pizza sauce, raspberry jam, red wine, blood…
him: I like black because it’s slimming.
What has been your favorite vacation or travel experience?
Prior to getting married, we both became unemployed simultaneously, so we maxed-out our credit card and dropped $1,000 on two JetBlue “All-You-Can-Jet” 30-Day-Unlimited-Flight passes. Then, we sold off our worldly possessions via stoop sales to raise money for the trip. We went to New Orleans, Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Costa Rica, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Seattle, Montana, Jamaica & Baltimore. And it was the best pre-honeymoon of ever!
