"Who Are You?"

I have been a professional art and design director for over 25 years. I currently spend my 9-to-5 toiling as a web designer and digital artist. With what's left, I operate a t-shirt and gift design business under the name eBrush Design.

"What's Up With The Hockey/Dance/Everything Else Thing?"

What's with the odd subject matter of your designs? Good question! When I started this business, I had two young children. (I still have them, but they're adults now). My son played hockey and my daughter was a dancer. My wife and I were emersed in these two worlds, so it seemed like logical niches. And since I didn't want to exclude any other design idea I might come up with, I created a third category that would include "everything else."

So there you go, you now have a viable explanation for the very odd combination of themes that runs through my commercial designs. In fact, The Dancers Gift is to dance tees and dance gifts what Hockey Shirt Shop is to hockey tees and hockey gifts.

"Do You Make This Stuff?"

As is the case with many commercial artists and designers today, I use a fulfillment company to handle the printing of my hockey designs, shipping and customer service. The company is called Zazzle and they are very, very good at what they do. You may already be familiar with Zazzle, but if not, you should know that any order you may place will be in the hands of what may be the best Print-On-Demand company in the world. The quality of their products is top-of-the-line and the printing is nothing short of remarkable. And should you need it, the customer service is top-notch as well. So when you find a hockey design on Hockey Shirt Shop that you like, and you click the link and land in my Zazzle store to make the transaction, you should take comfort knowing that you're in the secure environment of a highly reputable business and not some dude's slapped together online shopping cart.

So, eBrushDesign.com is a showcase for the entire line of eBrushDesign gift designs. It is not, however, an e-commerce site per se, but rather pages of direct links to the products in our Zazzle store where you can find and buy these designs on a vast variety of products.
