  • From screen to magazine

    Making the cover Cincinnati Magazine just released their annual “Best of the City” issue for 2008 (on newsstands now). In it they list 110 of their favorite things around town, from restaurants and shops to services and activities (including kilt rental and clogging lessons.) They not only gave a shout out to Wire & Twine […]


    an excuse to use the font Avant Garde Been wanting to make this shirt for a long, long time. Tom figured it out with some creative screening and a hit of white underneath to help intensify the colors. (Had we gone with a white shirt, this would have been a lot easier). Printed up a […]

  • Incantor

    Reed Ghazala, circuit bending pioneer Ever since Tom spent some time with the fella above, they’ve been talking about doing a project together— mixing Reed’s knowledge of circuit bending and our work at Wire & Twine. It all came to a head as Cincinnati hosted the first Circuitastrophe! this past weekend. An event that brought […]

  • Here to Make Friends

    Mixing colors on the shirt You might remember a test print way down at the bottom on this page of unjournaled photos from July. We’d just received new process (CYMK) inks to test in the studio and Tom experimented with thinning them down to provide translucency. See, these inks are pretty much opaque liquid plastic […]

  • Images from the festival

    1st ever (I think) Cincinnati T-Shirt Festival So that was fun. Hot — but fun. We got to the square just as the sun started to beat down. Luckily there was a breeze and a crowd. Lots of WOXY fans stopped by our tent. So many we ran out of shirts. (We’ll remedy that problem […]

  • Cincinnati T-Shirt Fest

    A new WOXY in Cincinnati shirt, available tomorrow (in person) My car is loaded to the brim with bins upon bins of t-shirts, because tomorrow—we’re taking the show on the road. It’s going to be a scorcher, but I hope we’ll have some respite under the shade of the tent on Fountain Square. We’ll be […]

  • Green thumb

    Modeling in the back yard A virtual friend remarked upon seeing our yard, “Did you garden? Because you do now.” How right he was. Turns out Dan has the proclivity to use the hose and the wheelbarrow thus far, but I figure once the inside is more “done,” I’ll get some (outside) dirt under my […]

  • Vote WOXY

    On the press right now I think I’ve mentioned that we print on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the studio. This gives us time to recover from the physicality of the process and spend the other three days of the week doing design, marketing and support. Today’s job: an election-year inspired design for a limited edition […]

  • 50 ways

    and lots of icons Every time Wendy and I find something that helps the environment and is easy to do, we’ve been adding it to a list. This has been going on for a good part of the year in hopes to have something made to commemorate today, Earth Day. In the meantime, it became […]


    Another day It wasn’t so much the spoof on Saturday Night Live as it was an email from my friend Alex up in Columbus. She was wondering if there would be a t-shirt for Christian from Runway. This wasn’t the first request, but it hit me on a night when I needed a big diversion […]
