Don't be limited by the direction we've taken in our flagship collection of designs, don't be afraid to color outside the lines! We're just getting started...

So, this is the mule. 

Paint the mule.  If you create a work, design or pattern and submit it to us in a high quality scalable graphic image we'll work with you to get it just right.  Seasoned artists and designers will know these techniques well... let's see if we can inspire new artists too!

If you don't consider yourself an artist, a quick search will turn up all kinds of techniques from the simple to advanced for turning photos, scans, and other images into objects you can stylize and use to create patterns and designs.

So contact us and we will get back to you with the details of just how we can work with you to share your design, and reach out to give all of us, together, a platform for raising awareness of the power of art to move people, and influence our everyday lives.  We think you'll find it a great way to join with us and find new avenues to create a movement and a groundswell with other positive, creative and motivated people.  So we look forward to hearing from you!  Contact us here.
