Just made some sweet little tags for Elmer Gomer, so I thought I would post about them here and give a bit of an update. Things are cruising along for my little company down here in Texas called Elmer Gomer. I’m excited about some projects coming down the line, so make sure you follow the Elmer Gomer Instagram for more drops and news coming the rest of this year. Thanks for all the support!
Telling folks what I do is often a tough thing – I love to do so many different things. I put together some of my favorite and most memorable projects all in one place to make it a bit easier to see what I like to do. If you see something that inspires you, maybe we can work on something together in the future: firstname.lastname@example.org
This past year was rough on us all. I wrote this short poem for myself, but figured it could also be a good gift to anyone and everyone who needed a pick me up.
I asked Bo Orr to illustrate in his own way and published the results through the HAND OUTS program on Elmer Gomer. Here are the contents for you to enjoy for free and if you feel like you want to purchase one or send to a friend, you can BUY HERE
This is the first installment of HAND OUTS – booklets with a message and something to share. Elmer Gomer profits from the project will be put back into the next edition.
Amy Leverton of Denim Dudes and Solomon from Left Hand Twill and myself teamed up on a project with Elmer Gomer that is entitled Sewn Together. Using denim scraps, we made an exclusive embroidered patch for sale with a message. Each of us will split the profits equally in a gesture to equality and equity in the world. Amy wrote an amazing blog post about the whole process that you can read here.
We met up timidly at the beginning of the pandemic and discussed a simple collaboration where they did their thing and then I did mine. The results are exciting and the beginning of some new works and directions for Elmer Gomer.
