Hey guys! If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook or you’ve been around us in real life (friends, family, coworkers, cashier ladies), I apologize in advance because you have probbbbbbbably heard this news already. We’ve been making things for years, but now we are actually selling some of the stuff we make! Specifically, these guys:
So I know I know, you have a billion questions: How do I buy one? What are they? How did all this start? How will you have time for this? How are you guys such straight-up badasses?? (unrelated, I just need to know!) I’ll try my best to answer everything.
HOW DO I BUY ONE?
There will be a couple ways:
- We are selling these in Houston at West Elm City Centre October 15th and West Elm Highland Village November 12th! Pinch me!!!!
- We are opening an online shop for those who can’t make it to either event, but we hope to do more in-person events too.
You can get to the shop by clicking the link on our menu or clicking here. We will continue to add more products as we go… we already have about a bajillion more ideas that we cannot wait to start.
WHAT ARE THEY?
They are dimensional wall art you can hang on your wall or display on your shelves. They’re made of faceted 3D prints that Evan designs (yay CAD + art skills!) and different types of wood: some with a natural raw edge, some with a dark walnut stain, and some that are hand painted.
Evan actually designed the deer years ago when 3D printing was just getting off the ground. Over time he refined this and exaggerated that until it became what it is today, which he surprised me with as a present one Christmas (it’s still hanging on our bedroom wall). It’ll always hold a special place our <3’s.
The faceted topographic Texas is a brand new design for us and, being Texans, we think it’s pretty awesome too. We are planning on branching out and doing other states as well but we had to start with our home state of course!
HOW DID ALL THIS START?
Well that first deer head Evan designed, he posted it open source a few years ago for people to use themselves and it went viral – even to the point of people selling it as a paper craft on Etsy! (Which of course we took as a huge compliment – that’s the cool part about open source content).
So that, combined with the comments of friends and family (“Y’all should sell that!” “I can haz deer hed?”) made us realize that people other than us might want this kind of thing in their home.
HOW WILL YOU HAVE TIME?
Hahaha. Hahahahaha. We don’t know. We’ll make it work though!
HOW ARE YOU SUCH STRAIGHT-UP BADASSES?
Born that way, deal with it JK, totally freaking out (but in a good way). So exciting!
