Kaelin Tillery and Richard Duggan
Kaelin Tillery and Richard Duggan like to say that the universe tried to throw them together a number of times before it actually worked out. They met in multiple cities, through several different people, before they eventually “realized that resistance was futile and agreed to meet over a cliché cup of coffee. (Feel free to insert your own sappy music and soft-focus camera angle right here.)”
First they forged a friendship, but that turned into a marriage, a house, a family of random animals, and business together. “We did the logical thing,” they explain, “and put our art educations together and began designing.” Each of those designs starts out as a pencil sketch, then they ink their illustrations and prepare them for screen printing in their studio in Denver—the city “the universe” finally settled them in.
